The future is now. Well, at least in New York (for the time being) where the city's subway system has been outfitted with interactive touch screen metro maps.
Each screen is 47 inches and gives citizens exact train arrival and departure times, updates on service outages, and safety reminders. To help you get where you're going, you can virtually map out your route on the map, allowing you to see the whole journey, upcoming transfers, and the time it will take to get there.
The futuristic maps were only just installed, and whether or not the initiative is a success is still to be determined.
Still, imagine Montreal with touch screen metro maps. Delays in service would be much easier to take note of, bus to metro transfers and trips would be easier to coordinate, and you'll pretty much feel like you're using the touch-computer in Minority Report.
