Customer Reviews

Excellent app to get full use of MTA

First let me just say that I rarely write reviews for apps but I think this bus app is really something that has improved greatly since I've had it on my phone and it is a real game changer. It's handy as a resource to map my travels through the city but also as a real-time Updater as to when the bus is coming.
I live in Queens about five blocks from the subway and there is a bus stop opposite my apartment where the buses bring me to the subway. I can using this app to stay in my apartment until about two minutes before the bus is coming and just walk out go to the bus stop and get driven to the subway. Bravo!!!

An essential app for any New Yorker

Unless you take cabs everywhere, this will come in handy. It's great for checking on the elusive G train to decide whether I want to take the subway or bike. Also since I live in Brooklyn, I need buses to get around and visit friends. This is great for those cold nights. You can duck out of a warm place just in time to catch a bus so you're not stuck at a bus stop too long. Game changer!

Best nyc mta app

This is hands down the best app if you are a nyc commuter, then UI is nice, clean, its very informational, and easy to use, it could be a little more accurate but its good enough as it is.
Some of the things i wish for

1) able to back up your favorites to dropbox or somewhere.
2) notification if your bus is coming in a timer you can set
