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!

Was my favorite app...could be again.
Living in NYC, this app has been invaluable in cutting down my travel time. For those who have missed a train by just a few seconds because you had to walk an extra 20ft. will understand the frustration that comes with the daily subway commute. When you have to transfer at least once, this can mean the difference between showing up to work 5 minutes early or 15 minutes late.
That said, I would have given this 5 stars except for the fact that it stopped working completely when I upgraded to the iPhone 6. I know that sometimes there are hiccups when an OS is updated (I assumed it was iOS 8, not the phone), so I gave it a couple weeks for an update. When that didn't come, I emailed support from the app just to have it bounce back.
Without any way to contact support, and no communication on their site, I am deeply disappointed that such an amazing app would just allow itself to not work for all customers. The fact that it's not a free app aside, I just want this to work so I can get back on track with my hassle-free subway riding. At that point, this will become a 5 star review.
Native NYer, I tell everyone to get this app
I've lived here all my life and this is THE MOST USEFUL app for maximizing your efficiency while navigating the NYC subway. Don't listen to that person who complained about the map. The map is great. Seriously if you're always going to the same place on the same line why would you need to open this app more than once anyway? I digress -- this is the first place I check when taking a new route or having to transfer to any train while taking an unfamiliar route. Being in the right car to transfer or exit is CRUCIAL especially during busy times when everyone else is milling around unsure of what exit to take. Seriously GET THIS APP whether you're here for a trip or here for life.
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.
