CONGRATULATIONS, you've found it -- the best NYC subway app! Exit Strategy NYC features the official MTA subway, bus, and street maps. PLUS comprehensive 'exit strategies' for each subway station that LITERALLY shave minutes off every trip. It's an unbeatable combination...and all cheaper than a roundtrip subway ride!
Exit Strategy NYC has been praised by NY Times, NY Post, NY Mag, Gizmodo, Wired and more. Try it and you'll quickly see why it's a MUST-HAVE for New Yorkers & savvy New York visitors.
No more unfolding those huge awkward paper maps and looking like a tourist (even if you are one!) And no more trying to read that map on the train that always has someone's head blocking it! Put the subway map in your pocket!
Know those amazing MTA neighborhood maps in each subway station? We've got 'em! We wove them together into a giant quilt-like STREET MAP! Just tap a station to see a detailed map of the surrounding area (works for all stops in Manhattan and selected outer borough neighborhoods). The map even has ADDRESS RANGES to help you figure out cross streets!
We've also included BUS MAPS for ALL FIVE boroughs to help you when the subway can't. No other app has these!
Additionally, our street maps show exactly where the ENTRANCES of each station are located at street level, getting you into and out of stations faster. Trying to figure out where an alternate entrance to the West 4th Street station is? Just check the map! We like to call it 'Enter Strategy'.
Lastly, the core feature that made Exit Strategy famous:
Ever gotten off the train and realized the staircase was at the FAR other end of the platform? As you make that looooong walk of shame, you're thinking 'If only I had known..I could have saved myself minutes!' Well, Exit Strategy NYC is that guide! You'll exactly where to stand on the train (ie '3rd car, 2nd door). Imagine pulling into each subway station DIRECTLY in front of the exit. Imagine being the FIRST person out every time! We even show you which side of the train the doors open on!
Detailed diagrams eliminate the guesswork and frustration from your ride, making your subway trip easier and faster. Version 2.0 covers ALL stations in NYC, so you can shave minutes off EVERY trip you take!
NO PHONE SERVICE or INTERNET CONNECTION required, so you can use it on the subway! This app will quickly take a spot on your phone's home screen (and a spot in your heart). You'll wonder how you ever lived without it!

Great app, minor flaw
This is probably one of my most used apps and I think the info on it is right about 98% of the time. The one problem I have is the size of the neighborhood maps. It seems the problem of jumping to the wrong spot on those was fixed, which helps, but my issue is with the fact that some of those maps are so huge to begin with. I remember reading something from the developers about the app a while ago, saying that some of the neighborhood maps were smaller because of lack of space. Reading that is infuriating when EVERY single station in Manhattan has a detailed map of the entire island, and then the farther out into the outer boroughs you get, the smaller the maps are, to the point where some stations barely have a five block radius. That seems like really poor space management. It's not like more extensive maps of those outer borough neighborhoods don't exist.
So much value, but...
I use this app constantly. So if you are thinking “is this worth it”, the answer is yes, yes it is.
The developer must have done a ton of work to collect all of the data needed to make this app work and having access to that data is just super useful. On the other hand, the app execution isn’t outstanding. I think tapping each station just loads a static image or pdf file which feels clunky and makes the app pretty large. And… it is fine. I learn what I need to know from the app. Sure, the design keeps me from unequivocally recommending this app to everyone friend I talk to, but if you are already reading the reviews here, you will probably be happy with the purchase.
An amazing app, finally updated!
I've long used this app to plan subway trips. It's like being an insider in the world of planned transfers and edits. And the fact the MTA doesn't want this information posted publicly in stations (there was a Daily News article on 2014 about them taking down such signs to prevent clustering) makes one feel like an insider.
It hadn't been updated for years, making some station maps obsolete and the GUI buggy, but this latest update fixes it all! Thank you to the developers for an awesome and unique app!
