App Reviews

  • Fixed! Thank you

    By Cowboyup351
    Fixed with last update - thank you! So this no longer applies (currently)............This app was great until it was updated (2 days ago). It took away previously saved favorites and will not allow an iPhone X user to touch the back button or the favorites star to add a favorite stop, because they're too high on the screen and tucked behind the time and signal strength, on the phone screen. Please adjust the locations to where they were previously, or where they're at least useable. Thank you!
  • Very useful but buggy

    By Kat634
    I rely on this app every day. It has saved me a lot of time and frustration and is more accurate than "Transit", which seems to only know what ought to be happening, rather than what is. My main complaint about MTA Bus Time is that it periodically locks up while showing an error message that the internet connection is faulty. It never gets working again once it is stuck on this error. The only way to get it functioning again is to delete it and download it again. I have had to do this at least five times in the past 6-8 months.
  • Ugh

    So first, the app works great when it works. It’s essential to my commute and sanity. However, there is the app’s favorite excuse of “check your internet connection” when the fault is clearly on the part of the app (every other Internet based app works). The previous version of the app had a refresh button that I could press incessantly when that happened. In this version, they took it away. So not only can I not get to see where the bus is after I see that message, but I also can’t refresh to see my bus’ progress. I’ve tried going out of my bus schedule and back in to no avail. On top of that, I had favorites saved in the previous app and when it upgraded to the new version, it deleted all of my favorites. I was excited when the new version came out because I thought they would have addressed the really irritating bug, but ultimately they made it more unbearable.

    I like the app and the features are great compared to using the browser version. The one big problem that there have been no updates to correct is the constant errors stating “Something went wrong, please check your internet connection”. This happens on cellular with an excellent Verizon connection as well as WiFi. I’ve emailed the developer and aside from one response that ask for further detail, I have not heard back or seen an update and it’s been a year. It’s a good app aside from the annoying constant hiccups.
  • Almost as worthless as the new “My MTA” app

    By bmosborn
    You would think that with billions of dollars in the bank they could find a developer that new what the hell they were doing. Half the time the app says there no internet connection, although every other app seems to be able to connect just fine. Another quarter of the time most stops say they have no data. The last quarter, when the app actually does it hat it’s supposed to do, it’s nice. That’s why they get 2 stars. It’s like a participation award. Mostly useless, but at least the kid feels less horrible.
  • Almost great

    By Rskc
    There is a feature to save certain stops and routes for quick access. Great idea for busses and bus stops you use frequently, especially when time is an issue. However, it doesn't work. A few hours after you save those favorites, they disappear and you'll find yourself having to navigate through the search results again. Please, MTA, fix this bug and let me actually favorite the stops I use, as the feature was intended.
  • Bug Report for developers

    By CommuterNYC
    This app has a minor bug when used on iPhone X. The developers did not use “safe area” boundaries for the map. This means that if you launch the app from app suggestions, the “
  • Needs help

    By Youcandobetter1589
    This app doesn't remember my favorites. It's great to have live times but It would also be helpful to provide scheduled bus stop times as well because when a bus is scheduled for a layover, I have no idea how long that might be for and so the app becomes useless when I'm trying to figure out my options. Please make this app work without an internet connection even if this means that live times are not available. I often use this app on the subway to figure out which stop to get off at in order to transfer to a bus.
  • Good app. Room for improvement

    By Nycbeeyotch
    This is helpful for planning when to arrive at bus stop. But it does crash a lot and say buses not being tracked at this time. Which is annoying because u have to refresh or close app and restart. Sometimes. It says layover but in one second it’s less than one stop away. Accuracy is not 100. But it is helpful overall. If they fix the crashing and the accuracy. I would give 5 stars.
  • Great app but bugs need to be fixed

    By dnaz81
    This app is quite useful but very frustrating. It will give you times for when buses are coming, but half of the time a dialog will pop saying there was an error with the internet connection. If I had to guess, this is their way of throttling requests. It would be just as valid to cache responses for the last 10-15 seconds. Please fix this glaring issue and the app would go to 5 stars.
