Re: Larger ambition.
Not knowing when public transportation will arrive not uncommon, though the situation has improved in recent years. Sometimes it's an issue of people being slow to board or get off, especially when people are trying to squeeze in (which also makes getting off tougher). Other times it's other trains. 

But it's still much better than it was simply show up at the station and guess.

Re: Larger ambition.
Not having any experience with the subway I was surprised to learn that "MTA mostly has no way of providing accurate timing of when any given train will arrive in a particular station." And a bit suprised that the company has been given a 27-year contract to update the situation there underground. I can see a number of years would be required to keep continuity going for a large project like this, but would not guess that number would be necessary.

Re: Larger ambition.
I think they're considering Boston as a possibility.

Re: Larger ambition.
If this is successful in NY and then goes to other cities (I'm in suburban Chicago), I hope they add more "quiet" cars. Too many people have to be too loud to be heard over the din of the train.

Re: Train in vain
That requires the NY govt to spend money though, probably not gonna happen.

Train in vain
NYC denizens would probably get more excited about actual trains showing up in subway tunnels on a more frequent basis.

Larger ambition.
Bayne wants to eventually have a system that links the subway comms to things like the LinkNYC kiosks and Long Island Railroad so that commters are constantly up to date on traffic situations.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
