The New York-based Touch & Go kiosks will be installed into some of the city's busiest metro stops come summer. Included in the project are Jackson Heights, Union Square, Grand Central Station and Queens, bringing them to bustling public spaces.

These digital maps were developed by design consultancy firm Control Group. A key part of the project is its adaptability as the information displayed can be updated and manipulated according to new developments within the subway system. The touchscreens will furthermore alert those using the public transport system of service changes, service alerts and point to point directions, enabling riders to literally map out their journeys. An improved method of operation will as such be seen. Stats for Interactive Subway Screens Trending: Older & Mild
