App Reviews

  • Great but room for improvement

    By LongNicknameGoesHere
    Great app, I use it whenever I'm traveling on a slightly different schedule than usual and need to know my options. Just two pieces of feedback: 1. Having the pop up about trains being rescheduled EVERY time I open the app is kind of overkill. When there's construction all summer long and I have seen this message before - I just want to find my train info, I wish there would be some kind of "don't show this again" option. Or at least the message could be a banner at the top instead of an in-your-face, urgent looking full-screen message. 2. One great feature to add would be track information for trains. When I'm going to be running for a train, or if I'm not in a place where I can hear the station announcements and need to get to the right track, it would be super helpful to be able to check the app and find that information.
  • Alerts are not in real time.

    By Lcolpa
    The app doesn’t actually give you accurate readings of when the train is coming. Today the app stated the ronkonkoma was running fine. After leaving my house in the snow, I show up to find out that line isn’t running at all. So why do you need the app? You’re better off just getting a regular schedule online, or through paper. They connect fancy things like lyft which is helpful, but we need to actually simply just know if the trains are running or not. It’s that simple. Making your app fancier, won’t necessarily bring more value to the customers if it’s actual purpose isn’t functioning.
  • I like the app a lot !!

    By AutomatonicBenthos
    I'm usually quite critical of the way apps function but I seem to think this app gets the job done really well. Sometimes I'd miss trains because the times on the timetable is confusing to read but with this app I can see exactly when my train is coming, the number of stops, and when I arrive. I enjoy this app a lot so kudos to you MTA.
  • Worth the download

    By Something for Name
    The app does what it says and gives the right time of when a train is coming in and on what platform as well as updates fast (if you click update) to any changes that may of happen. It also can give you an offline schedule if you don't have connect to the internet. The only big problem I had is it never saves my favorites.
  • Functionality is going backwards

    By Hopyakbug
    Why does the app no longer tell you exactly which train to transfer to when you have to transfer at a particular station? It used to give you which line to transfer to and the time of its departure, but now it just says "transfer at Jamaica" and nothing else. Why remove a function that only helps us? This app is going backwards just like the rest of the MTA.
  • Functional but only sometimes

    By dcgirl98
    I use this a lot but oftentimes it will say a train is "on time" or "left the station" when in fact it's running late. Right now, the 9:05 train is late. The app has it as "left the station" while here at the station we can see how late it is. Yes, I am at the station already but it would be useful if the app actually reported what you see on the station boards.
  • Took 5 years to get retina display resolution

    By CyberData4
    ..that's about what I expect from the MTA. I'm giving this app 5 stars just to encourage you guys updating more often. Like maybe twice a year instead of once a year. A man paying hundreds of dollars a month for train tickets can dream....
  • Glitchy, Unreliable, Frustrating

    By mikimozu0
    I hate this app. I really need it to work. Please fix it. Here’s what I hate: - It doesn’t remember favorite stations. I only travel between two stations and I “favorite” ☆ them each time. The app never remembers and I have to search for the stations over and over again!!! - It doesn’t show accurate real time alerts. 90% of the time the train times are off. You’re better off just going to the station and hoping a train will arrive soon.
  • Unreliable

    By Joe6592
    Although the app can be used as a useful resource for general scheduling it is unreliable for cancellations, delays and other important updates. The incompetence is unacceptable, especially for those relying on such app when commuting to work on daily basis. The developers of the app should work on improving the logistics OR notify their customers of their blatant short comings. Although the app is free it should not come at the cost of the customer. If anyone was contemplating using this app I would use extreme caution!
  • Just like the LIRR, this app is useless

    By Dominooooos
    This app is reflective of the nonsense and waste that is the LIRR. It is very glitchy and will click stations by itself, refresh itself and you lose all the information you inputted. It closes itself and doesn't even show you previous trains just to check when your train is arriving. Often it doesn't show the right track and you have to check at the actual station to make sure. Can't the MTA do anything right?
