Single purpose API
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York State (MTA) recently announced a new apps contest called MTA App Quest. The contest is designed to promote apps that cover a much broader system than just New York City and spark interest around the MTA API and newly released datasets. The MTA App Quest is the latest chapter in the MTA's transformation from a relatively closed agency to one that is embracing open transit data.
Riders on New York City subways are subject to all sorts of sights. For several months, that has included prominent advertisements for the MTA API, the developer program of New York City's transit company. The ad (pictured below) includes the headline, "Our apps are whiz kid certified."
