Subway directions even work offline underground! • System advisories, including background updating so you always have the latest information. • See train schedules for any station at any time of day • Use Street Map mode to see bus stations and bus times • Get push alerts for delays, customized for your route and commute time • See subway lines, stations, entrances, and exits overlaid on a street map • Browse the latest service advisories even while offline • See your Current Location with a tap; get walking directions to nearby stations • Beautiful graphics, including high-resolution maps for the Retina display • Review line diagrams to see stations, transfers, and express/local timing • Search for stations with a few taps Remember: the New York subway is a complex system and can't follow the timetables perfectly. The MTA timetables are included for guidance only. This app is for the MTA New York City subway and bus system, and features a licensed MTA map.

App Reviews

  • Alerts not syncing

    By CLTguy5
    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.
  • The app stopped working .

    By Jaxinthebox
    I keep getting a message that an SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made. I deleted the app and reinstalled it but I getting the same message.....
  • Updates?

    By Kimcan84
    Love the app and its overall functions but haven't gotten train status updates for 6 days??
  • The app stopped updating advisories alerts

    By Tychiko
    It has been posting error message: "An SQL error has occurred and secure connection to the server cannot be made" Advisories last updated 1 week ago. I tried to delete and reinstall it but it would not help.
  • New live departures??

    By tine bruhn
    I used to love this app, but as the previous person is asking: are you still updating?? New countdown clocks are all over the place but not live on the app.
  • Unreliable now

    By IMunhappy
    Seems developers are. It doing much to support/improve
  • SSL error and no longer secure

    By Tony3219
    Cannot make a secure connection to server error generates when looking up status alerts. I guess they stopped supporting this app.
  • Great App for New York City Subway Travel!

    By das Klangideal
    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.
  • Is the app still being supported???

    By K1r1t0
    UPDATED REVIEW as of 9/7/17: this used to be one of the few apps I considered worth paying for, but I'm wondering if it's still supported bc it's no longer accurate in what work is being done/what lines are actually running. Several times I've started a trip only to find partway that the line isn't running as the app indicated. Just going to the MTA website online seems more accurate these days. I guess it was good while it lasted. I still find it somewhat useful as a subway mapping app, it's just dangerous using it to plan your route without double checking. Especially on the weekends! OLD REVIEW: (This review pertains to the NYC-MTA version.) I don't often pay for apps but this one has proved pretty invaluable for the 2-3 years I've had it. It's probably about 98% accurate on service changes and delays (which is about light years ahead of the MTA itself) and is invaluable on trip planning and maximizing your time/avoiding standing on platforms waiting for trains that never come.
  • App is out of date

    By MaestroScott
    The app is good. But there are features that are lacking that are needed. The M train is currently incorrect on the map. The subway cars have a different map than the one currently in this app.
