MTA Gives 16 Subways Stations Travel Kiosks

NEW YORK (AP) -

Touch-screen kiosks called “On the Go! Travel Stations” will soon be arriving at 16 subway stations.

The high-tech devices will provide service advisories, step-by-step transit and street directions and information about escalator and elevator outages.

They also will offer information on local landmarks, nearby restaurants and neighborhood maps.

The kiosks will be installed by the end of the year at stations still to be determined.
