Ratings and Reviews
I’m lovin’ it!
Aii anyways, I use this app on the regular to look at the various maps, check the times of the trains, and getting directions to locations. Getting directions isn't the best, but it gets the job done (it could be better as explained in paragraph 2 😁).
One thing i would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to see in this app is an option called “must take” (or something of this nature) that forces the app to have to give you directions with the specific trains you want to take. I’ll provide an example, let’s say you’re at Times Square 42nd street subway station and you wanna go to Roosevelt Ave Jackson Heights subway station 74th street. There are multiple ways to get there. The app allows you to use the 7, E, F, and R trains. That’s perfect!, however, what I really want is to take the R to Queensboro Plaza and then transfer to the 7 train from there. The app doesn’t even suggest this, but there are and will be more reasons one might want to take other trains (the example provided is only 1 out of multiple). Anyways, thanks for you time. 😎
I'm confused by this app. The main reason to use it is for the arrival times of trains for getting around the city. So the MTA decided to make the times the tiniest thing printed on the page. Also, they're printed as the actual time they're arriving and not how many minutes away which is far less efficient when you're rushing to the subway and also how the arrival clocks are set up on all the platforms. The trains are not in order of arrival. Also to look at a station to see the trains you have to physically be near it. For some reason the MTA decided to base what stations it shows you on your proximity to the station. Another thing, several stations are puzzingly separated by train line. So for example Atlantic Av Barclays is several different stations as is W4th.
It's almost as if the people that designed this app don't actually commute on the subway. The Subway Time app wasnt great looking but at least it was simple to use and quick to get to the info you needed. It's mediocrity is a bummer but I'm not surprised.
Two steps forward, one step backward
It is great to have to check just one app for all of MTA’s services. However, one of my biggest complaints is that this app is fairly useless for the bus. BusTime has a great interface to see which stops exist on a line and then you can also see other buses which stop there. In this app, the stops don’t even show up at all and it tells me I need to enable location services to see “nearby” stops. I just want to see all the stops like in BusTime! Additionally, the train times for commuter rail like LIRR seem less accurate than the TrainTime app and there is never any track information. Overall, the app has potential, but I would not recommend it in the current state for anything other than subway travel.
Thanks to your feedback, we have now added live bus tracking to the app and improved the user interface for this feature. Now you can view your bus enroute on either a line map or a geographic map. You can find it under Status. When you click on your stop, it will tell you both the number of stops away and the time to arrival in minutes. Thank you and please keep the feedback coming!
