Timetables often don't show up. Have to close and restart app to get them to show up. App is too big and slow. Requires internet connection to get timetables to show up even when you just looked them up. That's not friendly to users traveling on subways where there is no internet. Update. 6 weeks later. It doesn't even work with wifi. Terrible app

The new update is terrible. The app went from being user friendly to complicated. After buying tickets, there is no longer an icon to simply get to those tickets. Now you have to look at what you bought and try to click the small word in blue that says "new" to actually see the ticket. I guess it makes sense that it got worse, since it is associated with the MTA

Way better than any of the MTA/LIRR apps of the past. Being able to get your tickets and check the schedules all in the same app is so much more convenient, and the user interface is quick and intuitive for the most part. A really great feature is that you can look up the schedule for your trip and there's a button that allows you to buy/activate the correct tickets right from there, rather than having to switch apps and remember which tickets you need. All around big improvement from before!
