MTA debuts live subway map

NEW YORK (AP) — One of New York’s landmarks is getting an upgrade. Not a building, statue or museum — it’s the iconic subway map, reproduced on millions of coffee mugs, keychains and t-shirts and known for confusing out-of-towners (and even diehard New Yorkers on occasion) with its multicolored tangle of lines. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority on Tuesday debuted a live, web-based subway map that shows trains moving in real time and planned service changes, a frequent boon of weekend travelers. The MTA stressed that the live map is in beta stage, and is welcoming rider feedback.
