Transit Transit news magazine is a half-hour award-winning television show which airs on both PBS and Public Access cable television. The show can be seen in almost 20 million homes in the New York tri-state area.
The monthly news magazine show, which is produced entirely inhouse at MTA New York City Transit, is about the 70,000 men and women of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and its agencies: NYC Transit, MTA Long Island and MTA Metro-North commuter railroads, MTA Long Island Bus, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, MTA Capital Construction, and the MTA Bus Company
Transit Transit is our key effort to communicate our corporate message to both employees and the riding public. In fact, it helps viewers understand who we are and how much of a role we play in their daily lives.
The program has stories about interesting places to see and things to do with just the swipe of your MetroCard. We also take occasional looks at other transportation systems around the country and the world. Additionally, the program provides information regarding safety, health, science, train/bus schedule changes, track/station rehabilitation efforts and community service.
All of the reporters and hosts of the show are volunteers who donate their time and talent. College interns also work on the show. Of the many students who seek careers in broadcast communications and journalism, its one of the few opportunities where interns get real hands on experience.
Transit Transit first aired January 4, 1997 on WNYE-TV, Channel 25. WNYE-TV is a fully accredited PBS station. Today, it is presented more than 92 times a month on 30 cable channels and seen by millions of viewers.
