The subway is the key to life in New York City. But an old system and analog technology are threatening its future (and making the present-day pretty miserable for riders). We talk with Rachel Haot, Executive Director of the Transit Innovation Partnership, on her plan to save the MTA by calling on tech entrepreneurs through the Transit Tech Lab. We also get into what data teaches us about transportation, and how New York can create equitable transit for all.
The deadline to apply to to the Transit Tech Lab is November 30th. Learn more about the program at transitinnovation.org
