Growing up in New Jersey one town over from a twenty-minute train ride into NY city, but unable to drive myself to the station fostered an understanding that cars don’t mean mobility for all.

Public transit is a service because we deserve to get where we need to go whatever our situation is, and on any single bus or subway there are countless stories. I'm here to find those stories while you get wherever you're going. 

Getting There is about the quality of your commute. We aren't algorithms. We are people and how we get where we are going shapes us as individuals and a society. This site helps shed light on the stories and people that make up our system and our city. To give you a feeling like you live in a community, public transit is a great place to start.
