[VIDEO] Learn All About the Design Behind the MTA’s New Live Subway Map

"The Map" (Work & Co x Gary Hustwit, 2020) is a short documentary about a digital redesign of New York City's iconic subway map. Filmmaker Gary Hustwit documents the process as digital agency Work & Co creates a new "live map" — one that updates in real-time — to help New Yorkers and tourists better plan their journeys. The film examines the evolution of wayfinding and user interfaces, and shows how good design and the latest digital technology can simplify one of the world's most complex transit systems.

Visit map.mta.info to check out the new live map, and head to Work & Co to learn more about the design process behind it.
