NYC Transit Explorer

Sidewalk Labs worked with the New York-based advocacy group Transportation Alternatives to create an interactive tool to illustrate how the looming shutdown of the L Train in New York will affect residents and commuters. The tool is a map demo called the NYC Transit Explorer. It's built on top of a transit router that uses the latest GTFS feeds for all MTA bus and subway lines, as well as the Staten Island ferry, to determine travel times and routes throughout the five boroughs. Traditional navigation routers direct people from Point A to Point B (call it one-to-one); our router adds the ability to show people how long it would take to get anywhere in the city via transit from a given origin (one-to-many).
