The MTA, in Pie Charts
March 17th, 2009

Albany’s new Senate CIO wasn’t kidding when he said he was going to be trying new things. The State Senate CIO’s office announced a couple of new web initiatives in coordination with the MTA. (Wonkster got this announcement by Twitter — we invite you to follow Gotham Gazette on Twitter.) One, they’ve put a few piles of numbers on a site, Swivel, that lets you review and visualize large data sets. They’re taking your ideas for a rescue of the MTA on NYMTAideas.org and they’ve published the Senate’s MTA Proposal on NYMTAsolutions.org. The MTA regularly comes under fire for keeping their books under wraps, but is this the transparency you’re looking for?

What are your MTA ideas?
