“This project is not in any way approved” by the MTA – rogue subway signs on L improve efficiency


Useful, but unfortunately illegal:

The Efficient Passenger Project is on a mission to put up signs throughout the subway system guiding commuters to the best spot to board a train in order to make the quickest exit or transfer. The anonymous participants have been placing “Efficient Passenger Project” stickers on and around the turnstiles in select subway stations, signaling the presence of a plaque on the platform that tells you exactly where to stand to make your commute most efficient.

  1. Super helpful but also kind of letting the “cat out of the bag” and therefore making those subway cars incredibly packed while others will stay almost empty

  2. Part of being the New Yorkers finding this out for yourself. I called cheating on this one!
