The overall drive for completing this project was that the MTA has been suffering. I have worked with three other people over the course of a semester. The conditions of the MTA are not up to par with other transit system. This is especially unacceptable as New York City is the largest city in the United States. Millions of people rely on the MTA to complete their daily commutes. Without safe and clean services. It is important that the MTA upgrades their services so that the MTA can improve their reliability and overall customer satisfaction. My project has been successful as the MTA has been making major improvement to their infrastructure. The MTA has carried out an initiative to modernize their services.

Our overall progress has been amazing. For instance, on our petition on change.org, we received 35 signatures. Although our goal of 100 signatures was not reached, we believe that this progress is a step forward in the correct direction. By utilizing this platform for signatures, it was much easier to understand how many people truly care about the MTA and its services. By having a petition for people to sign, people could take a direct action in supporting our initiative.

Furthermore, over the course of this project, our website has received approximately 2,000 views. Many people have taken time out of their day to view our site. This further supports our cause and allows us to feel assured knowing that many people can get behind the cause. Our informational blog posts allowed viewers to discover the problems that the MTA had.

At the end of this project, with a total of 2,000 views and 35 signatures, our actions have paid off. This project has allowed many individuals to understand the problems that the MTA may try to hide. By allowing the MTA to understand their issues, they can work to fix these problems. I truly believe that our efforts have shed light on the issues of the MTA. We have noticed many improvements with the MTA over the course of our project. It made me proud to know that the MTA is truly becoming better. Our project has been successful in fulfilling our goal to improve the services of the MTA. If I had to do my project again, I would change my approach with social media usage by utilizing an account that is more actively used and has a larger follower count.
