Make Your Own Subway Advisory

4:41 PM EDT on August 23, 2007

The SUBWAYblogger found a potentially useful new tool for users of Facebook, a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. The Subway Status application, which was not developed by the MTA, is a user generated subway alert system. Now you can forget about those wet mornings when you don't know if your train will get you to work. Theoretically all of the other users on Facebook who ride your Subway line will have already tipped you off to any service disruptions before you leave your house. Pretty cool, although it is only useful if a large number of people use it, so sign up!

Once you join Facebook, the subway application is available here, and you can see it in action through SUBWAYblogger's Facebook profile.
