iTrans NYC Subway Reviews


From good app to mediocre 👎🏼  Rivera1031  2 star

This app was amazing when navigating the chaos that's the MTA but since 2017 the times for most train arrivals is inaccurate and they keep incidents with any lines open even when the issue with that line has been addressed


worth every penny  BDouglas4  5 star

Line-specific push alerts...YAAAAAAS KWEEEEN!!!!! 💕💕💕😎


Alerts not syncing  CLTguy5  3 star

The alerts haven't synced for two days: "An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made." Have uninstalled, reinstalled, tried on wifi and cellular and the result is the same.

Great App for New York City Subway Travel!  das Klangideal  5 star

Some of the best $4.99 I spent back in 2009/2010 or so. That still holds true today, Sept. 2017!!! It's not super fancy with tons of bells and whistles – it's been minimally updated over the years, just enough to keep up with the changing development/interface/performance demands of iOS – but it's really great at what it does. The clearly detailed push notifications with real-time service alerts, without launching the app, are invaluable – they've been critical in avoid me from getting stuck on the subway MANY TIMES. The subways map, and street map with subway lines layered over it, are also extremely useful, as are the downloadable individual station maps with good detail on exits and passageways for transfer points.


Best NYC Transit app I've seen so far  Regucee  4 star

Gives real time train information and is updated on breakdowns & delays.


Used this app for years...  Berry86  5 star

It's still the best! The service advisories are clutch.💪🏾


Poor  MikeM711  1 star

Better free apps out there.


Choppy  Pharmer2b  1 star

The bus timings have not functioned well. Why isn't the bus times displayed?


never updated  aedelbert  2 star

Fine for basic info, but never provides accurate service updates. To be fair, neither does, but without timely service changes, it's use is seriously limited.

Better than anything else I've tried  Joe Dobish  5 star

I've used this app for years, its great with directions, schedules and service changes, and the street maps help figure out what car I should be in for the best exit at unfamiliar stations.


The app never update  David1li661236  1 star

I have the app for 3 years ready . The app never update. Train arrive time not accurate and even the train delay or change Sevice . It never update. Waste 4$.


Doesn't update  Gregnyc2  1 star

This app never updates. Always the information you need is not available.


Not great anymore  Vic17  1 star

Today 031417 is the major NYC snow storm and half of the subway is out. NOT ONE UPDATE ON THE APP. That is just crazy. MTA can't run trains on time and running an app is definitely beyond their skill set.


Service Notifications Are Terrible  Jfranknyc  1 star

The changes in service notifications are a joke. Half of the New York subways are shut down or running limited service due to a blizzard today and this app shows ZERO service changes due to the storm. Completely unreliable. Don't waste your money. Just download a fee subway map, that's all this app is good for - the map.
