Transit Tracker

This amazing visualization uses the station arrival times and GPS tracking from varying transit agencies to track ALL of the transit vehicles moving around. Is is quite beautiful watching the subways and buses move.

Is that real-time or only simulated based on published schedules?

It seems a little slow , so i'm guessing its based for on schedules. I don't think the Subways have GPS tracked trains.

I created this map today showing line extensions and or new lines for the NYC subway that seemed necessary/reasonable to me.
They are probably never going to be built but I'd do so in an instant if I had like $100bn spare and the convincing rhetorics for them NIMBYs.
If they are noted as extensions (ext) I only drew the new portions of the line starting at the current terminus. I already took the 7 extension as well as phase 1 of the sas for granted and did not include them since they should open some time within the next 2 years.
Enjoy:

You need to make your map public.

Hmm, that's curious! What's your reason for sending the T (are we calling it that, now...or should I just stick with 2nd Ave?) Westwards? I always thought everyone found it necessary to continue on towards the Bronx.

That's an interesting idea.

1. I would send the T into the Bronx while the Q would head along 125th Street...

2. The J/Z Extensions aren't needed as they are serviced by buses or the LIRR. NYC Subway cannot leave NYC Limits.

3. Letter lines cannot mix with number lines as the train widths are different.

4. I like both your L & Flatbush Avenue extensions..

I thought it made some sense since there is no real, contiguous east-west subway north of 63rd Street. Also, if this EVER gets realized, they might aswell be building Metro-North's West Side access and this project sees a station at the latitude of 125th Avenue so this version of the T could connect there.

Actually building it northeastward into the Bronx seems pretty interesting to, I might add that.

I would have the 2nd Ave take over Dyre Ave Line, after paralleling the MNRR West Side Access down the Hell Gate Line.

This takes advantage of the clearances on that line, and basically reinstates the New York, Westchester & Boston within NYC limits, extending it down to Manhattan at long last.

I would also run another branch up along roughly Third Avenue looping around into Norwood 205th St, giving a connection back into the Concourse Line.

Thank you for your feedback; the Bronx as part of the T will definitely be considered once I get to edit the map asap (probably tomorrow), makes sense of course since the sas is supposed to be operated on by two services
services.

You are referring to the LaGuardia line into Flushing and/or the (2)/(3) JFK extension, right?

I was wondering are the new york subways ever going to get a redesign? I'm sure their not that old, but I think that boxy design might be getting a little dated. Just wondering

It was mainly built the cut and cover way...hence the boxy design... Newer lines are bored and circular along with the underwater tunnels and deep stations which are circular..
