MTA Ridership Changes due to Covid-19 by TWO-N Inc.
MTA Ridership Changes due to COVID-19 recounts what happened to New York City during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Data visualization agency TWO-N began the project wanting to create a data-driven narrative that would engage New Yorkers and urban data enthusiasts to examine the ways different communities were affected by the unfolding pandemic. The MTA subway system, by being such a ubiquitous vector of mobility throughout the five boroughs, provided a unique lens through which viewers could understand the pandemic’s effects on the city’s populace, especially in terms of privilege and who is most at risk.
