Why don't they show train systems explicitly?

The most serious issues in New York Subway are safety in the subway stations and complicated train routes and sorts. The former issue is gradually improved through "If you see something, say something" promotion by the authority. The latter is still under solving. MTA tries to make train operations understandable by putting up train information boards on platforms. But, it's not sufficient. What I want to know is the time each train is scheduled to come and stoppng staions of each sort. MTA should put up timetable boards on platforms and the route maps to show which train sort stops at which stations.
Though stopping stations of Express and Local are shown on maps, Express trains operated during rush hours stop different stations from the regular one.
MTA should give name to them or indicate stopping stations on route maps.
