The New York Times released an other textbook case of digital storytelling with this explainer about the punctuality crisis that is affecting New York’s subway lines. The story describes how the city’s transportation agency actually contributed to worsen the problem by enacting two successive decisions.

Because all of this can turn pretty complicated, The Times used some amazing animated graphics to make sense of each decision’s consequences. It’s crystal clear, every animation was carefully thought and adds a real value to the story. On the tech side, all animations are rendered inside your browser (no videos, no GIFs!), as incredible as it may sound.
