500 K. Simultaneous Users Brought Down MTA.info This Morning

snowbus 500 K. Simultaneous Users Brought Down MTA.info This MorningThe MTA’s website was borked this morning after 500,000 New Yorkers tried to find information about the snowstorm, Transportation Nation reports.

The influx was almost twice the 270,000 who tried to get to MTA.info during December’s blizzard.

An MTA spokesman said the MTA is upping the site’s capacity and in the meantime, MTA.info has been stripped down to almost bare text. Maybe someone from theĀ NYC BigApps competition can help?
