The New York City MTA Transit has installed two blue beacons at the Lexington 23rd Street and Brooklyn Bridge Subway stations as a part of their Help Point pilot program.
The Help Point communication system gives passengers access to transit information and emergency assistance all with the push of a button. The MTA hopes that these units will eventually replace similar intercom-based help systems already in place in many Subway stations.
No Subway information with guided maps on screen? Just audio? Where’s the fun in that? Seems like a bit of a waste of money to me.
