I suppose I was basing my opinion on the original incarnation of the PeopleMover, which was explicitly designed to be a mass transportation system of the future. That was back when Tomorrowland had a purpose, but that's another story.
However, even with the newer version of Tomorrowland (which gives you a peek into a bizarre future of cartoons, rocks, and metal), the TTA was still a fantasy version of mass transportation. The "NOW APPROACHING..." bits were part of that theme, although they were kind of lame.
Now they're moving a little closer to the original version, by adding phrases that reflect the original spiel, but to me it seems a little like that false homage thing Disney does where they reference the past, but they don't try to emulate or build on it.
All that stuff aside, for me the root of the problem is that the new voice is annoying the first time through.
