  • MTA Considering Big Changes in Future Subway Cars By Bryan Gamble | November 05, 2013

    Because most New Yorkers take the subway, most New Yorkers are familiar with the quirks, hassles and headaches that tend to grace our commutes. Peddlers, solicitors, musicians, dancers and ‘preachers’ roam between subway cars and test our patience and tolerance for these additions to the ride. Meanwhile passengers surge on doors and risk trampling one another to get on or get off at a stop. But there is a chance that these subway ails may become much more avoidable with the MTA’s new consideration to adopt articulated subway cars.

  • Gear up, New Yorkers: Your Subway Rides are Going to Get Costlier By Aby Thomas | December 14, 2012

    We always knew New York City was expensive, but it’s soon going to get a lot costlier. After months of discussion on four different proposals for its 2013 fare hike, the MTA has finally settled on a scheme that will increase prices across all card options.

With the MTA claiming that the hike is necessary for them to take care of costs like pensions and health care, New York City residents have been dreading the prospect of seeing their subway commute or bus ride become a lot more expensive, and unfortunately all of the MTA’s proposed plans spell a costlier future for New Yorkers.

  • Poetry in Motion Will Once Again Grace New York's Subways By Daniel Muhlenberg | March 28, 2012

    Good news for New Yorkers who enjoy a good piece of literature: the Poetry in Motion series has been re-launched by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. It’s been four years since the MTA discontinued the popular program that featured excerpts from some of America’s best-known poets (and some relatively obscure ones) on thousands of subway cars. Unlink the past edition of the program that ran for 15 years, the newest version will integrate artwork drawn from the transit system’s public-art installations into the advertisements. We at Elegran always enjoy these artistic touches on Manhattan's subways, especially because it's details like this that only help to increase interest in Manhattan luxury apartments.
