Introducing The Weekender App
Now you can have the Weekender in the palm of your hand.
The MTA has launched the Droid version of the Weekender App which is now available in the Google Playstore. Available also for the iPhone from the Apple App Store, this free-to-download app shares the same features as the desktop version, including a subway diagram that displays the service to be provided each weekend, and all service changes.
Users can pinch or expand the map to multiple zoom levels, and tap to choose one of three ways to view service diversions.
Key features include:
- Service by Line: Click on a subway line symbol to get a line diagram showing an overview of the line's service changes, as well as text summaries of the changes.
- Service by Borough: Click on a borough for text-based information about any service changes impacting a borough.
- Service by Station: Select a station for details on any service changes impacting that station, or click on the map to zoom to a detailed area.
- Provides Neighborhood Maps: These maps show the precise locations of subway station entrances within the street grid, along with locations of popular area destinations.
The Weekender for Mobile was prepared by developers at the MTA following initial design concepts from Vignelli Associates. The diagram used as the base of The Weekender both online and in the mobile apps is designed to illustrate service diversions at a glance. It is inspired by the 1972 New York City subway map designed by world renowned map maker and designer Massimo Vignelli, and was recently updated by Vignelli, Beatriz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Waterhouse.
