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.

Way better than the app made the MTA itself. 👌


Good app  BigLou9781  5 star

Shows the trial route and fastest routes. Very helpful


For real New Yorkers...  SuperVegaman  4 star

& tourists alike! Figure out how to traverse the transit system, from the comfort of your phone. (It saves me every time I need to use the train on the weekend too!)


Nice  Josecomando  5 star



Up to date info  Headhuntnyc  4 star

Service status is accurate which in the morning is critical... simple interface and doesn't crash. Good job!

M Nobre

Meehhh....  M Nobre  3 star

Not always accurate nor in sync, but how can you when MTA itself is a schedule failure? I also hate the unsolicited ads every time you are trying to check the next arriving train...


Inaccurate train time arrival/wait.  Keesh100  2 star

Inaccurate train times arrival. I checked the app and it said the train will arrive in 7 mins when I went to check again 5 mins later it still said 7 minutes. Deleting this app. It isn't helpful.


The best  DIABLOTRONYC  5 star

Very useful to go around the city like a local.


Wonderful App  brooklynNYC  4 star

I'm glad the map is up-to-date but as for the Arrival Board, it's not exactly accurate. It only works for the IRT lines. Not the alphabet lines. It tells me what time it should arrive not what time when it will arrive.

Did not update  GMak0987654321  1 star

The app did not get an update with the new NYC 2nd Ave line.

The Filard

Nothing wrong  The Filard  5 star

The app is just fine. Yes it's "just a hard copy" of the actual subway map but can you pan and zoom in on the one on the wall? No but you can with this. Thanks for the great free app and for updating it regularly.


Useless  @panamajon  1 star

I tried plugging in my address and the address I need to get to, but neither worked. You need to already know which station you're close to and which station you want to get to, but that's why I downloaded the app in the first place, so I deleted it.


Decent app  Gravyisgravity  3 star

I don't think there is anything that can make a commute in NYC easier or faster, but this app does a great job of putting you on notice of schedule changes and delays. Other than that, nothing spectacular.


Useful at any moment  Dreamcoat72  5 star

I love that I can use this app even when offline. I can route different destinations and been very effective for me to use this app.


Terrible. Just like NYC MTA!  Sonni-Janine  1 star

This app is garbage just like the MTA. It doesn't update the information for service changes until the time the service changes. Now what sense does that make? I resent the MTA and this app earns the same angry feelings.


Great  Magstripechicky  5 star

Love this ap!


not too bad  Rolas25  4 star
