Plan ahead  Cocair  4 star

This is a good app for planning your trip, of course the adds are annoying, but the app works great. Give yourself the time to plan out your trip there may be delays.

Ads very disruptive  davelender  1 star

Hmmm  Jazcreek  2 star

Just started but certainly challenging and not giving such great advice today. UN is meeting so it might not be a fair test.


This app rocks...  Goldstoner  5 star

I use this app everyday when leaving work to know exactly when I need to leave my desk. Extremely accurate and I would hate to commute without it.


Good  lalio2  5 star

Great!!!  gasspedallll  5 star

I will be starting school in August and I will be using the subway everyday, and those practice runs I've been doing I have used this app and it's great! Has a picture of the subway map and helps me get to point A to point B stress free! Would definitely recommend it!

This gets me where I need to go  KC Jayhawk  5 star

I'm don't need this app to time the subways, I just need them to get me from point A to point B. This does the job just fine. Have use it for all me trips to NYC.


Serves its purpose  Pookiezombie  4 star

I use this primarily for service status updates and it doesn't let me down.

This app is trash. Doesn't get any of the "arrival times" correct and the one thing is does show, are delays, and that too, is delayed. Pun intended. Better off with another app.


I love the app  DonnyGaga  5 star

I love the app


Great app!  sabartl  5 star

Very helpful.


Unusable because of ads  CJB3542  1 star

At launch there are full screen take over ads that can't be dismissed quickly. Can't check the map quickly because of this. And with bad signal underground the ads load very slowly.


App never has current info  Edinbk  2 star

I guess the app is fine, but the MTA never updates it to warn about service disruptions.


Banana101  CoconutBoy101  5 star

Way better than the app made the MTA itself. 👌


Good app  BigLou9781  5 star

Shows the trial route and fastest routes. Very helpful
