NYU Rudin Center: Social Media and Hurricane Sandy

Presented by the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management and the University Transportation Research Center.

From the front lines of Hurricane Sandy, New York’s transportation providers delivered information, images and video nonstop. Both official and informal information services emerged on social media networks to convey clearly the extent of infrastructure damage, and how New Yorkers could expect to get around. Join the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation to hear these social media leaders’ stories and lessons learned. Panelists will include:
• Aaron Donovan, MTA
• JP Chan, MTA
• Robin Lester Kenton, NYC DOT
• Ben Kabak, Second Ave Sagas
• Tyson Evans, The New York Times
