Trip Planner+ Now Shows Real Time Service Info

Recommended Posts

[float=left]post-5097-0-27526300-1349206714_thumb.jpg[/float]The MTA's TripPlanner+ now gives you real-time information about any service disruptions that could affect the subways, buses or railroad trains you'd need to use on your trip.

This is great.... Now if they could only get Bus Time done early and get the countdown clocks are more stations, a lot of folks would be even happier...

When the BMT gets an automatic dispatching system, countdown clocks will follow. Currently, only the IRT and CBTC lines can have them.

The only flaw that I came across was that Trip Planner will alert you even if the service change will not be affecting that particular itinerary, but it's pretty minor. A little common sense will fix that error, although I don't know what others will think. Other than that this is a great improvement.
