Excellent use of RSS

Disoriented Express has RSS feeds for each train run by the New York MTA. The RSS feeds (HTML listings for handhelds also available) list all the Service Advisories published by MTA about the subway lines. So for instance right now…on the R:

No trains between Pacific and 36 Sts Weekend, 12:01 AM to 5 AM Sat to Mon until Oct 20

fed straight to your news aggregator or website. Ack–no N latenights either…and the M doesn’t stop after 9:30pm. Well I’m SOL this weekend, but it’s a handy service if you live in or regularly visit New York.
