Two big pictures frequently asked are "How long do different delays take?" and "What are the top 10?" Given that static data snapshots cannot capture dynamic systems, we created an interactive bar graph that displays the 10 causes and allows viewers to toggle between years and see shifts over time.
Below is the full presentation:
MTA MONDAY A.M. DELAYS
These designs were developed in collaboration with teammates Sneha Pai and Matthew Brigante for a 4-week data visualization workshop, led by Rachel Abrams of Turnstone Consulting and sponsored by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).
As a team, we were tasked with developing visualization tools or methods with a focus on "Monday Morning delays" that would better allow MTA officials - many of whom may not have extensive involvement in MTA's operational workings - have a better understanding of the data provided to them.
Given that the MTA measures delays by a multitude of metrics, it's very hard to rank definitively which delays are better or worse. Since results would differ given context and the board member, we avoided providing a definite ranking system and instead on providing a flexible one that allows him/her explore delays in a format of their choosing.
