1. Illegal Subway Signs Show Commuters How To Nail The Transfer →

    The EPP (Or Efficient Passenger Project) is extremely rad. If you’re interested in improving the subway, check them out. They’ve placing Boarding signs throughout the stations to let you know what the most efficient place to stand on the platform is. There’s a few different apps that do this, but I like the physical approach.

    During my time in the Masters in Branding, I focused my innovation thinking into the Transportation Security Administration. Take a look!

  3. Someone has made fake London Underground signs, and whoever did it is a ruddy genius.

    These are hilarious. Change your environment, folks!

    Well, there’s a variety of reasons, one being that we have to use a system that wasn’t built for incremental upgrades.  But if we as a community come together & work with those in charge, we can figure out how to have a modern system. 

    Thanks!

  5. New York Transit Museum →

    Join transit blogger Ben Kabak of Second Ave. Sagas in this continuing series of compelling one-on-one interviews with transit employees, thought leaders, innovators and “problem solvers.” This month Kabak sits down with designer Randy Gregory, creator of the online project 100 Ways to Improve the Subway. Gregory’s 100 proposals, which range from subway car flooring suggestions to smell detectors, take an inventive and practical approach to improving nearly every aspect of the subway system.

    Incredibly excited to announce this. Next week, join me at the New York Transit Museum for a Q&A.

I even thought of doing something like this for my little San Diego transit system but anyways, I really liked #76 and I don't know if any of these ideas will ever be real, but an easy way to put plants in the subway would be something like using Vertical Planters.. you can google it [since I can't insert links :( ]

    Rad! Thanks!

    I believe that with the right people and resources, innovation is possible in every transit location.
