MTA Launches #TaketheTrain Playlists, Courtesy of Spotify Campaign
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority launched #TakeTheTrain Spotify playlists to welcome commuters back to 24-hour service on the rail system on May 19.
On May 14, the MTA set post-pandemic records with more than 2 million trips on the New York subway, more than 100,000 trips on Long Island Rail Road and more than 80,000 trips on Metro-North.
Since the start of the pandemic a year ago, combined metro and bus ridership reached more than 2.3 million riders for the first time.
The five curated playlists can be found on the MTA’s Spotify page. They were organized by both MTA leaders and regular metro users.
Each playlist is full of musical hits and has a different theme. They span a variety of genres and decades.
Songs on the playlists include: “Together Again” by Janet Jackson, “If You Had My Love” by Jennifer Lopez, “Spice Up Your Life” by Spice Girls, “Everywhere” by Fleetwood Mac, “Heroes” by David Bowie and so much more.
The MTA has undertaken unprecedented cleaning and disinfection protocols to ensure that the system is as safe as possible for its users.
