Excellent app! I am not an American Citizen but I get arround real easy thanks to this application. I do not need to wait for any ride. I just verify the tracks (bus or metro) plus a street view from Google Maps to be sure of what the area looks like and gone I am. A sensation of being free. The assurance of being able to go any where I want at any time and the ability to get arround just like a native. That is, and also feels like Power. All just by having the right information!
Could be SO much better Maps are outdated, and you can't zoom in more than one click. I used it for years until just this week, when I got onto a bus only to find out that its route was changed THREE YEARS AGO! :-(
Does All It Promises, but Half of What's Needed I used this several times in NYC this last week and have no complaint other than the map needs to magnify a bit farther to really read the fine print on it and I have normal vision. However, you still need to know both about where you are in the city and about where you need to get to for this to really be useful. If you don't already know NY, it's more helpful to have mxData's "NYC Subway" app. It asks where you are (you can look at street signs rather than try to find that same intersection on a tiny map) and then where you want to go, which pops up the station(s) you need. To be fair, NYC Bus & Subway may offer better help for busses, but I did not try/use busses at all. Also, I'd give this limited app 2.5 stars if I could but I can't really give it three stars so I've rounded down to two.
Good ap. However, don't know about the others but the Bklyn bus map is not current. This is a big deal considering it is the main function of this app. I took 3 buses yesterday. Found out after a 2 hour mission i could have taken the last bus somewhere else but didnt because the map did not have the current route.
I downloaded this app regardless of the company rights issues because the developer seemed dedicated. Unfortunately, it seems as a new installation, none of the maps, bus or train, will download. It's a shame. Hopefully there's a good app out there waiting for me to stumble upon. It's been a "ride" to find one. Good luck.
Display problem? Using samsung note 2. Went to download map but only blank with many boxes on the right under “bus map”. So does it mean there are different maps to choose from? No time to play around as we only stay in nyc for 2 days. Sorry for the mean feedback but i cannot use it.
-Fix for 1.5 and 1.6 devices
-Improved double-tap zooming
MTA Bus Time uses to track the real-time location of MTA buses in NewYork City.
Just tap on a route map to look up transit information anywhere in the world.
