Finding your way around New York City's subway system is beginning to get a lot easier. The city's first 18 interactive subway maps are now live throughout Grand Central, letting travelers plan their routes just by tapping a destination, look into points of interest, and view train arrivals, delays, and outages. The interactive maps are being called "MTA On-the-Go kiosks" and take the form of 47-inch touchscreens surrounded by large frames of ruggedized steel. Technology and design firm Control Group is responsible for creating them, and the MTA plans to continue installing the kiosks in major subway stations over the next few months.
