One of the best parts of working at DNAinfo was our ability to experiment. One of the our most successful experiments came out of a discussion I had with a few friends that was based around this question: “What’s your favorite seat on the Chicago ‘L’?”
I took that question to our small team dedicated to data and visualization projects. From that, after months of iteration and testing, we produced two features examining ridership preferences in New York and Chicago.
You can still can take these theoretical commutes! So please take a ride now.
