For those of you hearing this for the first time, the MTA NYC Transit subway system has been steadily declining in On-Time Performance as well as increases backlog maintenance. The system is at capacity (no doubts about that), but how can we develop a cost-effective and simple system to address capacity and delay management within the constraints we have?

So, with that note, Governor Cuomo has announced a $1 million Genius Competition to solve these issues. https://www.ny.gov/programs/mta-genius-transit-challenge-reimagining-new-york-s-transportation-system

I have some ideas already, so if you want to start exchanging thoughts on how to improve the subways’ operations (tech and non-tech), let’s start discussing. Comment below for send an email to samwong(dot)529(at)gmail(dot)com.
