Every time I try to used it shows the bus it is coming but instead one on the opposite direction. They have to fix this.

M72 westbound stop at 1st Ave & 72 is restored - construction was finally completed at least two weeks ago!!! This was well before the last update
It would be a five star app for me, but the schedules are horrible
by assault_is_eternal on 2020/08/29 15:01
The MTA should scrap their app and use this one - it’s head and shoulders better than MyMTA. Where this app fails miserably is with the schedules- even with GPS enabled buses. The MyMTA app is rarely wrong (!) and I have another third party app that I use for bus tracking that is on the money. If this app had accurate schedules and tracking, I would dump the other two
Accurate
by sunshi e2020 on 2020/08/23 11:56
Accurate representation of transit schedule
Usually it’s correct
by MJ NYC on 2020/08/19 16:53
I would say it’s 50/50 correct with the live bus feed. A few times it showed the bus arriving and leaving but it never came. That was a bummer
Time Saver
by SolarGurl83 on 2020/08/05 15:14
This app has made my commuting life so much easier and it’s so helpful when trying to cut back on time spent waiting for a train or bus
Love this app!
by adpie on 2020/07/12 06:32
I love this app. I’m working in NYC for a few months and had never used the public transportation system before. This app has made it so easy to navigate the city and I am enjoying so much more with ease and confidence.

Horrible service
Good for bus, awful for trains
by monnaaaa on 2020/03/11 12:52
The train schedule isn’t accurate at all, but before I moved I used it to find out where my bus was and that was almost always accurate. The directions feature could use some work as well, but I appreciate how it shows how much the trip would cost. If they made this a bus only app I think that would be the most beneficial.
Inconsistent
by Emonaleace101 on 2020/03/09 00:50
I’m a little frustrated now because I checked for the 19bx on 149th and Grand Concourse and the app said 19mins. I caught an Uber and the bus came in 5 minutes 🤦🏾‍♀️ while I was waiting for the Uber. This doesn’t happed often but when it does it’s annoying.
Time
by bhhjjiigv245( on 2020/02/26 10:43
It would be nice if the app gave real time on where the is located
Great app
by Dadmc Grey Beard on 2020/02/21 13:17
This is a great way to navigate the NYC Transit System. It allows you to plan trips by destination and desired time of arrival, and includes the time spent walking to the departure stop and from the destination stop to your final destination. The app gives you several alternatives from which to choose. As an out of towner who visits the city a few times a year, this app is invaluable.
Times for trains are not right at all
by mclebob on 2020/02/16 15:24

Pretty good

Best bus app ever
Glad I downloaded
by Arkchemy on 2020/01/09 22:22
This app was a lifesaver for my first trip to NYC. I found it super helpful as I was also traveling also by PATH and LIRR. I like that it didn’t just have stops but locations too (theaters, stadiums). Gives you multiple ways of getting from A to B and walking directions. I highly recommend!
Too complicated. Does not easily provide bus arrival information.
by Is there a worse service on 2020/01/09 15:24
Downloaded in German. Cannot figure out how to get it in English
Could be more effective
by sunset mary on 2020/01/02 12:35
Keeps defaulting to the locatywhere you are. Too difficult to put in and save another location so that you can plan ahead. Shuts off on my phone and restores default location rather than location one entered. Cumbersome.
Who Designed this Horrible App?
by DLBNYC on 2019/12/20 14:15
Impossible to navigate and find needed train information. Going somewhere? Use Google Maps for trains, times and status. Save yourself time and headaches
Still good

bus arrivals are wrong 75% of the time
by tristanefox on 2019/12/12 15:28
i only use this app to track the buses i need, and it is wrong a good majority of the time. as i type this i’m standing at a bus stop where this app has been saying a bus would arrive for the past 15 mins. also it seems like every update removes a useful feature. so yeah. the MTA is a mess and so is this app.
Not accurate
by SoSadInSI on 2019/12/11 13:31
By the time my train came to my station, the “live” map showed it was at the station 2 stops after me.

Very misleading app
by LinnetteBradley on 2019/11/25 00:23
Most of the good reviews are fake as well. I downloaded this app to check its accuracy and it is obsolete. I live right on the corner where I always catch my bus to work and everywhere else, I turn on the app and checked for supposedly 4 different buses every about 15-20 minutes and not one bus passed by but then again it had the buses as running “right on schedule” and with estimated current locations after my bus stop. Really? Nice try. Deleting after this review
Annoyed
by meme230916 on 2019/11/18 18:52
You saying one thing and the bus is doing another and it is freezing very annoyed
Not so accurate
by Budif on 2019/11/11 17:33
At first I was so excited about this app. Especially for bus user I need to know the bus schedule. But unfortunately, the time is off most of the time and cannot be trusted. Very disappointing.

Lies about times
by Fix the sign in!!!! on 2019/11/07 20:00
I cannot tell you how many times I have looked at times in this app and then it says one time, and then 20 minutes later you look again, and now the bus is coming within the next 20 minutes.
Not live updates. Bus updates based on schedule
by Amoreeeeee5747 on 2019/10/20 14:17
What is the point of this if you’re not going to tell people where the bus is in live time in NY? You claimed to do that in the description which was the only reason I downloaded it. Deleting now.
Restore the app
by girrafee on 2019/10/18 13:10
The app was very intuitive to use....but with the new update it has become very difficult to refresh the train arrival time. Very frustrating.
Missing Bus Stop!!!
by Texinthecity on 2019/10/14 21:26

by Joesphine on 2019/10/04 18:42
It can’t identify nyc street corners. Also, I only use busses and the is no way to pick isolate only bus information. The bus comes before I ever find it to it on the app. Does anyone who actually uses public transportation have any say in this unusable design!
Worthless
by mylesgaytheaite on 2019/10/04 12:18
The bus arrival times are absolute lies. All in a burdensome and convoluted app

i’ve been living in new york city for all my life thats 17 years and i take the mta bus everywhere including school. sometimes this app shows when the bus is coming for ex. “9 mins” so i wait at the bus stop and 9 mins pass by and theres no frickin bus ??? OR A NO SERVICE BUS COMES... then it says to wait another 10 mins??? liKe what kind of app liesssss. I know MTA is trash but like at least provide accurate times of buses that are in SERVICE!!! im constantly LATE because of the inaccurate times this app informs me of.... blocked and reported and deleted . cutting all negativity from my life .
Great app!
by z6girl on 2019/06/13 14:17
I used this app during a recent trip to NYC. Because of a leg injury suffered just before our trip, I needed to minimize walking while still enjoying all the city has to offer. This app allowed me to enter my starting point and destination, then gave me choices that included bus, subway, and walking options. So helpful! Easy to use, and was such a help in learning the transit systems. NYC also deserves credit for having bus stops clearly marked, and for maintaining immaculate buses.
App is horrible
by EzAiming on 2019/06/05 23:06
This app is terrible, I’m waiting here trusting this stupid app and it’s gave me an estimation time of “6:52” I’ve been waiting here since 6:30 and I’m still waiting it’s 7:30 I’ll never trust this stupid thing again, don’t buy.

Unreliable data
by Guyho on 2019/05/13 11:42
It works reasonably well, but can’t trust the data. Maybe its feed is delayed. Unfortunate. I expect at least the same level of current data as displayed on the platform screens.
Perfect, perfect app.
by espana04 on 2019/05/07 11:34
I love this app. It’s very exact on the arrival time.
Saved money
by ddockk on 2019/05/07 09:48
I was looking for a way to save money on travel and this app was very helpful. Every month I spend $269 on metro north and $35 on subway but this app found me a subway close to marble hill .. this saved me $$$. Instead of spending $300+ a month I am down to $110 with almost the same destination arrival time for my morning commute
Used to Work
by SunnyWise on 2019/04/27 16:23
You can’t send feedback either. No departures to be shown. I refreshed, deleted, reinstalled nothing works on this app anymore. It’s dead.

This app need a update as of 2019 on your map tab it is saying 2016 it need to say is 2019 not 2019 on your live tracking map by 96 street 2 Ave line it need to say is Q and W trains due to a g.o right now update this app now plz. 👍
Big help
by Duravel on 2019/04/12 04:57
When I head for the subway or a bus stop, this app tells me whether I should run to catch my ride that’s about to arrive, or relax because It’s a couple of minutes away and I can stroll to catch it. i’ve been riding the subway since the 1950s, so I don’t need the app to navigate, but it looks like it works pretty well for that, too.
Extremely useful app

Be Warned: does not show train status change!
by schwinn.zhang on 2019/04/03 03:25
While overall this app works well, especially for buses, it does not properly show the status of subway. As I’m writing right now, the uptown 1 train skips my stop overnight. This app shows 1 train as normal.
Ad app
by RicoBicho on 2019/03/21 14:44
Doesn’t work, the time does not match even close to reality. It will also mark a bus regular schedule and you wait to find out there is no bus.
Failed to track buses, feedback function doesn’t work.
by Gin_Sh on 2019/03/19 23:19
I waited for a q13 bus that was due for 20 mins. I also saw a q28 bus pass by the stop which the app wasnt tracking. Tried to send feedback from the app but the submit button doesnt work.
Feedback doesn’t work nor does transportation transfers
by EKossick on 2019/03/19 10:08
The app does not show transfers to another bus, which would take one to destinations, without many minutes of walking...even though bus Routes are exclusively requested. The app does not properly show subway to bus transfers either... even though both bus and train transportation is requested. For example: taking B 61B from Prichard Circle to 9th St. @ fifth Avenue and transferring to the B 67 To travel along fifth Avenue.

Saved tourists!
by erclairebaer on 2019/02/25 20:48
We just came into town to celebrate a birthday and wouldn’t have been able to get around without this app! It rerouted us when the subways were down for maintenance and gave us multiple options. I wish the app would keep your last searched trip’s information on the home screen instead of opening fresh every time (it got annoying having to constantly re-search our route when I just wanted to double-check the numbers), especially when you’re in a subway station with poor reception, but it was a minor inconvenience.
This App Is Better Than The Transit App
by phatbird67 on 2019/02/16 04:18
I downloaded this app because of the shortcomings of the other Transit App. So far this app is allot more useful. I still use the other app sometimes.
Wildly Inaccurate
by nicknamenonoonehasthisone on 2019/02/15 21:13
So the times for the busses are ridiculously wrong. The app’s estimate is 3 minutes, while the code you text on the bus stop says 20 minutes. I’ve been waiting for 16, so I know the latter is correct. This is the busiest city in the world, can we at least get a transit app that works!
This app is not accessible to all patrons
by aSometimesIWon on 2019/02/01 06:24
Buttons are not labeled. This makes it extremely difficult if not impossible for visually impaired patrons to use this app. Edit boxes are not labeled. This is a poor excuse for an app. It is not accessible to everyone.
Time waster

Doesn't work
by tazz381 on 2018/12/21 06:48
I had this app, for a couple of days. It worked fine, once I updated it, it was completely wrong. It didn't recognize any of the stops, it showed the map of the United States. It is a complete waste of time
Never Accurate
by seufhgaeodugeaduog on 2018/12/20 22:55
Been using it a while now and it never seems to be accurate. Says Due, but nothing shows up. Says 2 minutes and resets to 15 minutes.
Better than the MTA
by klnyc11214 on 2018/11/29 12:49
i have been using this app over 4 months and it has been working great. Compared to NYC official MTA Subway which is soo bad i deleted after one use. I give 4 stars cause it seem the train gps movement is gone it doesn’t show it no more. Doesn’t matter to much but would be nice if i can see where is the train. Over all i’m satisfied.
Bus numbers
by Graylin Fox on 2018/11/23 20:24
*** Update: this issue was addressed within 24 hours. Thank you very much. This app would be absolutely amazing if I could read the numbers of the busses when I plan a trip. Unfortunately, it looks like the numbers are written in the same color as the highlight and you can’t see the numbers.
Skip it
by Livin' On da Phone on 2018/11/22 14:07
No value; doesn’t do anything helpful.
False information!!!!
by Capillary Action Hero on 2018/11/16 16:40
The weather was bad yesterday. This app shows the location of buses on a map. It showed a bus almost to my location every ten minutes. The whole time the buses were not really running. So their map is fake.
Works perfectly

Those buses never come on time, this app is useless!!!
I Like this app
by DL Exploring on 2018/09/23 18:04
In my opinion the app is user friendly & easily navigated. I tap into the app when leaving a destination - it’s great to get immediate travel info. I even use the app while I’m in transit, this helps because if they’re delays I can see possible so I can connect to another train line to reach my destination. I really enjoy the ‘take me home’ button; I get an immediate estimate on when I’ll arrive home.

Would use again :))
by christinej36 on 2018/07/13 03:46
I visited NYC for about three days with my family, and this app definitely saved our lives. Coming from California, we never take the train or bus to go places, so taking the subway would be a huge issue. But this app made traveling so much easier. We knew exactly which train to get on, what stops were being taken, and when we had to get off to either our destination or to transfer to another train. Of course, I can’t give it five stars because sometimes the times are inaccurate, but the times are usually off by a couple minutes. To get an accurate time, the signs in the subway do give better times of when a train is arriving (i.e. 1 minute, 5 minutes, etc.). Also, the service does cut off when the train is in motion, so the app doesn’t work and doesn’t show us our exact location, but once the train stops for the next flow of people, you are able to see exactly which station and street you’re on if the train itself doesn’t provide a sign or you cannot hear the conductor. If I ever go back to NYC, I will definitely be using this app again :)
Great, but with a few flaws
by TheHammer610 on 2018/06/02 00:13
I tried this app and ‘NYC Subway’. This is a far better app. I was visiting from out of town and had visited many years earlier. I like the NYC subway. It is easy to get around. But some things are confusing and this app just does not get it right. We were staying at a hotel near the 33rd street, green, #6 line. During most of the day, only the #6 train stops there, it this app’s map says that the 4 also stops there. It does, but only late at night. It took me a day to figure out this error in these maps. But the route directions to get from one place to another were fine most of the time. We wanted to go to Yankees stadium. The app sent us south on #6 to 14th street to change to the #4. We ended up going north on #6 to Grand Central Station, then switch trains there. That seemed far more logical. Still, I could not have found my way around the NYC subway without this app.
Good but Interface is poor
by Avbo on 2018/03/25 21:18
This app has a lot of potential. The best thing about it is it's reasonably accurate display of subway arrival times. But there are at least four things about the app that are annoying. 1) Certain multi line subway stops, like W. 4th St., only show the information for the blue lines, not the orange lines. 2). The subway arrival time display for each station often displays at the top of the screen where you can't see it without resuming your screen. 3) the app should remember the zoom state when switching between bus and subway. 4) you should be able to turn on or off bus/subway info in preferences so that the display is cleaner and tailored to ones main use.
Great app!

This app allowed me to enter my starting point and destination, then gave me choices that included bus, subway, and walking options. So helpful! Easy to use, and was such a help in learning the transit systems. NYC also deserves credit for having bus stops clearly marked, and for maintaining immaculate buses.
I Like this app
by DL Exploring on 2018/09/23 18:04
In my opinion the app is user friendly & easily navigated. I tap into the app when leaving a destination - it’s great to get immediate travel info. I even use the app while I’m in transit, this helps because if they’re delays I can see possible so I can connect to another train line to reach my destination. I really enjoy the ‘take me home’ button; I get an immediate estimate on when I’ll arrive home.
So far so good
by kelkuu on 2017/03/31 12:21
I downloaded this app so that I could see exactly what it shows - how soon the buses would arrive. I was surprised to see it even does trains too. The only thing I am not sure of is updates on closings and/or rerouted trains/buses - like for construction or maintenance. I will update rating if it doesn't have this feature but otherwise the starting point is important and it does the job.
Great app
by Dadmc Grey Beard on 2020/02/21 13:17
This is a great way to navigate the NYC Transit System. It allows you to plan trips by destination and desired time of arrival, and includes the time spent walking to the departure stop and from the destination stop to your final destination. The app gives you several alternatives from which to choose. As an out of towner who visits the city a few times a year, this app is invaluable.
Subway
by ChrisJowers on 2018/04/03 13:32
The app is great for directing you to the correct subway entrance and train number however it could be a little more informative on the direction you need to take the train, as the same trains run both directions and not being familiar with the city we got on the train going the wrong direction. The app still made it much easier.
Big help
by Duravel on 2019/04/12 04:57
When I head for the subway or a bus stop, this app tells me whether I should run to catch my ride that’s about to arrive, or relax because It’s a couple of minutes away and I can stroll to catch it. i’ve been riding the subway since the 1950s, so I don’t need the app to navigate, but it looks like it works pretty well for that, too.
Bus numbers
by Graylin Fox on 2018/11/23 20:24
*** Update: this issue was addressed within 24 hours. Thank you very much. This app would be absolutely amazing if I could read the numbers of the busses when I plan a trip. Unfortunately, it looks like the numbers are written in the same color as the highlight and you can’t see the numbers.
Saved money
by ddockk on 2019/05/07 09:48
I was looking for a way to save money on travel and this app was very helpful. Every month I spend $269 on metro north and $35 on subway but this app found me a subway close to marble hill .. this saved me $$$. Instead of spending $300+ a month I am down to $110 with almost the same destination arrival time for my morning commute
Glad I downloaded
by Arkchemy on 2020/01/09 22:22
This app was a lifesaver for my first trip to NYC. I found it super helpful as I was also traveling also by PATH and LIRR. I like that it didn’t just have stops but locations too (theaters, stadiums). Gives you multiple ways of getting from A to B and walking directions. I highly recommend!
Great real time info. For the consumer.
by C0nSert7 on 2020/01/14 11:54
I feel like saying we’re in the 21st century. That being said I no longer have to ponder when the next bus / subway will arrive. Therefore I have less stress and some piece of mind. Finally money spent wisely. Thanks.
trash
by ksksmskskss on 2019/07/09 15:57
i’ve been living in new york city for all my life thats 17 years and i take the mta bus everywhere including school. sometimes this app shows when the bus is coming for ex. “9 mins” so i wait at the bus stop and 9 mins pass by and theres no frickin bus ??? OR A NO SERVICE BUS COMES... then it says to wait another 10 mins??? liKe what kind of app liesssss. I know MTA is trash but like at least provide accurate times of buses that are in SERVICE!!! im constantly LATE because of the inaccurate times this app informs me of.... blocked and reported and deleted . cutting all negativity from my life .
UI could use some tweaks
by Boborina on 2018/04/19 01:05
Found it the most helpful in planning my trip but there are some affordances and UX that could be improved upon to make this even better. What it doesn’t take into account is the travel time between lines and real time delays fm trains that could mess up the travel sequence. I know, a lot to ask for but that would be super.
Better than the MTA
by klnyc11214 on 2018/11/29 12:49
i have been using this app over 4 months and it has been working great. Compared to NYC official MTA Subway which is soo bad i deleted after one use. I give 4 stars cause it seem the train gps movement is gone it doesn’t show it no more. Doesn’t matter to much but would be nice if i can see where is the train. Over all i’m satisfied.
Good for bus, awful for trains
by monnaaaa on 2020/03/11 12:52
The train schedule isn’t accurate at all, but before I moved I used it to find out where my bus was and that was almost always accurate. The directions feature could use some work as well, but I appreciate how it shows how much the trip would cost. If they made this a bus only app I think that would be the most beneficial.
Very misleading app
by LinnetteBradley on 2019/11/25 00:23
Most of the good reviews are fake as well. I downloaded this app to check its accuracy and it is obsolete. I live right on the corner where I always catch my bus to work and everywhere else, I turn on the app and checked for supposedly 4 different buses every about 15-20 minutes and not one bus passed by but then again it had the buses as running “right on schedule” and with estimated current locations after my bus stop. Really? Nice try. Deleting after this review
Love this app!
by adpie on 2020/07/12 06:32
I love this app. I’m working in NYC for a few months and had never used the public transportation system before. This app has made it so easy to navigate the city and I am enjoying so much more with ease and confidence.
Love this!!!
by Honest & From the Heart on 2018/01/09 03:49
This is an awesome app. So glad someone was smart enough to come up with its Tells you precisely what time, how far & how long (to walk), when to expect trains/buses to come...and the EXACT best path to take to get you there. Just makes life simpler 👍🏼 Genius! Thanks
It would be a five star app for me, but the schedules are horrible
by assault_is_eternal on 2020/08/29 15:01
The MTA should scrap their app and use this one - it’s head and shoulders better than MyMTA. Where this app fails miserably is with the schedules- even with GPS enabled buses. The MyMTA app is rarely wrong (!) and I have another third party app that I use for bus tracking that is on the money. If this app had accurate schedules and tracking, I would dump the other two
Bad train info
by lamenickname79 on 2018/07/08 21:54
Gives the plan a trip feature but was completely wrong about weekend service. Added 10 stops to the trip because of it’s inaccuracy. No way we could get to our destination on time with the route provided in the app. Plus you have to download the subway map every single time you use which is not user- friendly.
Gives every bit of detail
by Ant$ 3\/3r @Ft3r on 2017/06/25 12:35
Just WoW (not world of warcraft though) live updates of every stop and train. Some time crashes when you tap very Fast. Otherwise best app for planning and traveling.
Love thee App
by Artist -21 on 2017/07/10 16:35
This app is great I've been using it endlessly since I installed and all inquiries and ETA's have been correct and on point this app is very useful if you can't or funny kno how to work it yet don't rate it till you do this transit app deserves 5🌟 ratings!!
Best bus/train app I’ve ever had!!!
by Lonely lollipop on 2017/11/22 14:20
I downloaded multiple train and bus time apps to see which were easiest to use as well as accurate. I love this one because it’s so fast and easy to use!
Feedback doesn’t work nor does transportation transfers
by EKossick on 2019/03/19 10:08
The app does not show transfers to another bus, which would take one to destinations, without many minutes of walking...even though bus Routes are exclusively requested. The app does not properly show subway to bus transfers either... even though both bus and train transportation is requested. For example: taking B 61B from Prichard Circle to 9th St. @ fifth Avenue and transferring to the B 67 To travel along fifth Avenue.
good but missing parts of the line
by hphxmm on 2018/06/14 14:38
I use stops on the M line that don’t show up in the app. For some reason the entire part which connects the M to the JMZ lines in Brooklyn and Manhattan don’t show up. (Central Ave, Knickerbocker Ave, etc) Another issue is that the feedback section within the app doesn’t work.
Update as of 2019
by Alvis Wu on 2019/04/12 16:04
This app need a update as of 2019 on your map tab it is saying 2016 it need to say is 2019 not 2019 on your live tracking map by 96 street 2 Ave line it need to say is Q and W trains due to a g.o right now update this app now plz. 👍
Most updated app
by rsdofny on 2018/05/06 18:27
All other apps either fail to provide updated subway map or give wrong arrival time. This app is the best at this point.
Time Saver
by SolarGurl83 on 2020/08/05 15:14
This app has made my commuting life so much easier and it’s so helpful when trying to cut back on time spent waiting for a train or bus
Pretty good
by Ldorceus on 2020/01/13 12:24
So far I’ve been using this app for a week and it’s been dead on with time. Love knowing in advance when I need to break out in a sprint. 😂
Be Warned: does not show train status change!
by schwinn.zhang on 2019/04/03 03:25
While overall this app works well, especially for buses, it does not properly show the status of subway. As I’m writing right now, the uptown 1 train skips my stop overnight. This app shows 1 train as normal.
Not accurate
by MaxRPGer on 2018/02/13 19:21
Checking bus is okay. I have a better app for that. When I tracking my bus, it disappears as if it has arrived at my stop while it is still like two stops away Train is not accurate at all. While I am tracking my train, it is due but another train arrives. Useless to track train.
Major improvements Wow! Love this app
by Kodi Fan-NYC on 2017/07/13 21:15
I used to see real time for the bus but now I can check the subway lines and on top of it LIRR. Very accurate and a necessity for all NYC commuters!!
Too busy
by b_mcintyre on 2018/05/22 07:02
When you quickly need a refresher on where exactly the q train stops as it’s pulling into the station, there is no simple way to find that out on this app. Every screen is just inundated with information, user experience is visually frustrating and just stressful to attempt to navigate. There shouldn’t be a learning curve.
Could be more effective
by sunset mary on 2020/01/02 12:35
Keeps defaulting to the locatywhere you are. Too difficult to put in and save another location so that you can plan ahead. Shuts off on my phone and restores default location rather than location one entered. Cumbersome.
Wow
by JW12Ace on 2017/09/19 01:23
1st time in NYC. Brought a week pass and used this app....took me straight to the next point and connecting times were spot on.
Unreliable data
by Guyho on 2019/05/13 11:42
It works reasonably well, but can’t trust the data. Maybe its feed is delayed. Unfortunate. I expect at least the same level of current data as displayed on the platform screens.
bus arrivals are wrong 75% of the time
by tristanefox on 2019/12/12 15:28
i only use this app to track the buses i need, and it is wrong a good majority of the time. as i type this i’m standing at a bus stop where this app has been saying a bus would arrive for the past 15 mins. also it seems like every update removes a useful feature. so yeah. the MTA is a mess and so is this app.
Still good
by dayshawnsingletary on 2019/12/19 17:13
They don’t point directly where you are at on the phone like google maps
This App Is Better Than The Transit App
by phatbird67 on 2019/02/16 04:18
I downloaded this app because of the shortcomings of the other Transit App. So far this app is allot more useful. I still use the other app sometimes.
Could use live tone update
by yellled on 2018/09/13 01:06
Nice app. Really does a good job of tracing the routs around tried state area. Still real time updated on the delays and so on would b much better?
Mostly accurate
by pluto jake on 2020/09/30 20:29
This is my favorite way of transportation in the city
Inconsistent
by Emonaleace101 on 2020/03/09 00:50
I’m a little frustrated now because I checked for the 19bx on 149th and Grand Concourse and the app said 19mins. I caught an Uber and the bus came in 5 minutes 🤦🏾‍♀️ while I was waiting for the Uber. This doesn’t happed often but when it does it’s annoying.
Works perfectly
by Trustedreviewer69 on 2018/10/19 14:38
Amazing app, always accurate. saves me so many headaches.
Good for a tourist
by Mike B. from NJ on 2019/11/27 16:27
Pretty easy to use. I would’ve given it 5 stars but the fare section under more wouldn’t work
Extremely useful app
by PPPrep on 2019/04/10 13:40
Accurate and precise. It hasn’t been incorrect yet.
Usually it’s correct
by MJ NYC on 2020/08/19 16:53
I would say it’s 50/50 correct with the live bus feed. A few times it showed the bus arriving and leaving but it never came. That was a bummer
