Essential App for New Yorkers and Visitors
The bus is great if you want to see the city from above ground. BUS NYC is now one of my most-used apps. The user experience is excellent: I can select my favorite stops, which show full bus routes, accurate arrival times at each stop along the routes, when buses will arrive at their destinations, full week timetables, and where exactly along the routes current buses are located. BUS NYC also provides MTA transportation status announcements, Trip Planner service, contact and fare information, FAQs, and bus and subway maps for all five boroughs.
I use this app at least twice a day, and I could not recommend it more highly. Now I know exactly when to leave home, work, school, or the gym, just in time to catch my next bus.
Well done, Electric Labs!
Great app but..
This a great app to track buses and trains. Most of the time they're fairly accurate but I have a suggestion. For the buses, it would be more convenient to track the buses at the stop. For example, there's an app currently no longer on the App Store but if you click the bus route, it will show the stop and where the buses are next to the stop names. This is more useful to me so I have time to get ready and not tell me when the bus is here. Once the bus reaches 0 min, it already has passed the stop or is there and I didn't make it out in time. If you know what I'm saying, I would really like for you guys to add this feature. If you don't know what I'm saying, contact me (if that's even possible). But anyways, it's a great app
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!!!
