Hmm. I wonder where he got this from.

54. Parallel Signage

Currently, the signs in the subway are perpendicular to the car. As a result, it’s actually tougher to see where you are if you’re on the train.
If the signs were parallel to the subway line, it would be easier for travelers to figure out where they are. And this how the signs were originally intended to be installed, as per Bob Noorda & Massimo Vignelli…but designer suggestions can only go so far.
Big thanks to Hamish Smyth of Pentagram for the idea.

48. Queens Airtrain

The airtrain at JFK is invaluable. As Queens expands, it will be necessary to have a better system for getting to and from the airport. This would also make the area more attractive for businesses & airlines. 2 lines, coming from the N and 7/EFMR hub, will make it easy for commuters to come from Queens, The Bronx & Manhattan.

41. Exercise Call to Action

Experience isn’t just about making a system work better, it’s also about making people better. Using data, we can calculate & display how many calories are burned using the stairs and walkways instead of escalators, elevators, and automated paths, and use that data as a call to action to get New Yorkers out there and use the urban gym.

39. Suction Garbage System

Garbage is a problem in the subway. It gets everywhere. Cans usually overflow, the homeless usually rummage through them, and not picking up afterwards, and as a result, the stations smell, garbage gets on the rails, and could potentially cause fires.
Utilizing the suction system the city of Montreal is currently installing could solve these issues. Essentially, each trash can is attached to a vacuum system, which takes all of the garbage to a plant, where recyclables are sorted from other material.
On the user end, we put the garbage in the chamber, close the door, and it’s gone. On the city end, it means less labor, less danger, and less cleanup operations by the MTA.

38. Car density
It’s a real pain when you’re standing on the platform, and the car you always get on is full. So then you have to run to the next car, not knowing if it’s going to be full or not. And sometimes, you miss the train, causing even more tension & anger.
Live tracking, based on the weight of the cars, could determine this info. When you get to the platform, you can check the screen, and figure out where to stand. This results in better distribution of riders.

36. Neighborhood Guides

What kind of things are in a neighborhood? Where are they? Interactive kiosks in tourist heavy areas could answer these questions, and display helpful videos about important New York landmarks, like the World Trade Center. Users could use the interactive map to find restaurants & other local businesses. A camera attached to each kiosk helps dissuade vandalism.
