$9 suggested donation
Last January the Metropolitan Transportation Authority launched its YouTube channel as part of a broad effort to revamp its web and social media outreach to the 15 million people who live within the MTA’s service area. To date, this channel has attracted over 875,000 views and features nearly 100 videos covering all facets of the MTA’s operations, from trains and buses to bridges, tunnels, and construction. In this screening and discussion, MTA staff will share their practical and aesthetic approaches to telling the story of a giant, complicated transit network that affects the everyday life of New Yorkers.
