You know the story, one day you are riding the bus or subway & you leave a valuable behind. The initial thought is to consider it gone forever although for the sake of hoping for the best, you check with the MTA’s lost & found. Well the MTA hopes to help out people in these situations with a new feature on their website. The new feature would enable you to try & track down lost items through the site. Pete Donohue of the New York Daily News had more in this very brief report:
Bus and subway riders can now try to track down lost property via the MTA’s Web site.
A new feature allows riders to describe an item they believe they left behind in the system and then be notified by e-mail if there is a potential match at NYC Transit’s Lost Property Unit, located in the Penn Station subway complex.

I applaud the MTA for adding this new feature. This should hopefully help riders find their lost items quickly. I hope people take advantage of this if they have to go through the unfortunate task of tracking down something they lost.
