MTA signs could get a new look

Specific cross-streets for buses.

A calendar.

Better information about the impacted area.

The Transit Riders council says more and better info needs to be on MTA construction signs.

The council released a report called “Every Which Way But Direct” after a survey of stations and a study on signs. It found some station signage was posted in obscure locations in stations or not posted at all and signs on subway cars were difficult to find, if it could be found at all.

The MTA is reviewing the recommendations which also include a better explanation for travel alternatives. Colors have already been changed on the signs and the agency makes information available on the internet. An MTA Spokesperson says marketing research is involved in the design of current signs.
