Re: More count-down clock lunacy

The feed is updated every 5 seconds

Thanks for the info.

I'd have to spend some real money, if I wanted to capture the data at that rate.

I also don't know how useful it would be for my purpose. The vehicle position data is rather crude. There's a single snapshot for each vehicle with each download. That snapshot timestamp has sometimes been almost a minute before the download timestamp. I will not have received any additional information, if the same vehicle snapshot is repeated every 5 seconds for almost a minute.

N.B. just so we are talking about the same thing. I'm talking about the feeds for software developers that the MTA makes available. I'm not talking about the communications between trains and the CBTC or ATS system. That would have far more precise vehicle position information. That feed isn't available, so far as I know.
