New York MTA unveils 'Dashboard' to track progress

Posted on August 11, 2010

New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) unveiled a new online "Dashboard" that will enable the public to track the progress of its various capital projects. This new Web tool will feature a user-friendly interactive system to provide information on project scopes, budgets and schedules, all easily accessible on the MTA's Website.

The public will be able to search the Dashboard for specific projects and follow their progression from inception to completion. This information will be available for every project in the 2010-2014 Capital Program and selected projects still underway in the 2005-2009 program.

The Capital Program Dashboard will enable anyone to search for a project in the 2010-2014 Capital Program by keyword; project category; MTA agency; project phase (planning, design, construction or complete); or by location where an interactive map, powered by Google, will list projects within a geographical area.

Additional project information will be accessible by clicking on the link that will provide a more detailed project description. The Dashboard can be used to check if the scope of a project has changed, when the project started, and whether or not it is still on schedule and on budget. Project milestones and budget data that break down project funding by year will be readily available as well.

The Dashboard will also encapsulate the entire Capital Program providing a thorough "Plan Review" that includes figures on the number of projects in the Program; how many are on budget; and the number of projects that are on schedule, ahead of schedule or behind schedule.

In addition, the Dashboard will also include projects in the 2005-2009 Capital Program that are under construction but not completed and with budgets more than $20 million.

Information will also be available for projects funded by the federal stimulus (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) as well as projects contained within the Second Avenue Subway, East Side Access and 7 line Extension projects.
