Can't live without this app

Update after 5years: This is still my favorite NYC mass transit app. It's gotten a lot better at integrating guidance for subway riding. The hard work keeping this app updated is obvious and makes it more relevant than others I've used.

Love the app. I live off the B 61 and I use it all the time. All the new improvements are also greatly appreciated.

NYC Bus is the best

Excellent app, very accurate. Shows all buses on route instead of just the next one that's coming up. If there are any detours or service changes and what they are. Trip planners and MTA contact #'s. Also shows all street names and intersections, App can be used as a neighborhood map! Always updating routes and info.

Love this app!

This has become my no. 1 source for not only buses but certain trains as well. Very accurate as I’ve yet to miss a bus/train when checking the expected arrival times for them. I highly recommended getting this app if you’re a New York City resident.
