The MTA is inviting the public to try out and weigh in on dozens of new apps designed to ease getting around.
In partnership with AT&T the MTA released 49 new apps on Tuesday. They were developed in a competition to create new mobile tools that draw on real-time MTA data.
Users can vote through Sept. 10 on their favorite. Winners will be announced at the end of September.
Competitors are vying for $40,000 in prize money, provided by Dallas-based AT&T Inc.
A panel of tech experts will choose some winners. The public vote will select others.
The MTA offers its own apps but also has made a practice of inviting developers to use its data.
