What's New in Version 3.2.7
- Updated FAQs
- Minor bug fixes
As someone who has been going back and forth between Grand Central and New Haven for over 10 years, this makes things SO FRIGGEN EASY OH MY GOD. Compared to getting to GC in a mad dash trying to visit family having to wait in line at holidays to buy a ticket or else face paying way more buying one onboard, phew.
This app might not be perfect but it's such a *ridiculously* huge upgrade from not having the option to buy virtual MTA tickets, I don't understand why anyone is giving this less than 4 stars.
Decent first try!
Good app to use when it's cold and your in a rush! No need to stand in line behind people as the fumble around with their credit cards or cash. However, I find myself fumbling to get my ticket ready when the conductor comes to look at my ticket. If the ticket could be added to the apple wallet I think that's would be a lot more convenient and allow me to take a nap on the train at the same time. Good app just needs to be a little more mature. I hope MTA gets there and doesn't have to raise my fair to do it.
A must have for regular & occasional passengers
All I can say is WOW! I was visiting my family on LI & decided to head into NYC to ck out museums & do some shopping. Lying in my bed & on my iPhone, I loaded the app, bought tickets using Apple Pay, and had Etickets for ride the next morning. The app is user friendly, easy to navigate & efficient. No more worrying about getting to station in time to buy tkts. Easy to use on the go. Way to go MTA.
