This revision concept of the New York City Subway system allows riders to schedule their train using an app on their smartphone. Smaller carriages and updated rails allow the infrastructure to stay in place, while still achieving a major improvement in efficiency. The system offers a safer, more convenient commuting experience, and improves human flow at stations during peak times due to its logistical efficiency. It's like ridesharing on rails.
