This app doesn't open if you have no Internet connection. It says: you're offline, try again or notify me. It's galling because after a half decade or more of development it finally features: offline maps, for when you're in a train between stations, experiencing an issue, and need to reroute without a connection. But you can only use that in the off chance you'd opened the app before being underground without a network. 🤬 Still happens; feedback sent with screenshot (Play Store blocks opening)

Thank you for your comment. You should be able to open the app without an internet connection and access the Offline Maps. If you are still experiencing an issue, please let us know by submitting feedback via the app: Open "More" tab, tap the "App Feedback" button, and follow the prompts.

This new app is nice in concept, but in actual use is so much worse than the old MyMTA app. Having to search for subway stations by exact name (don't type 'West 4th' or you'll never find 'W 4-Wash Sq') is beyond frustrating. All user flows to find arrival times are generally slower, especially when waiting for a GPS signal underground.

The upgrade is practically unusable. You have to wade through menus to get the train or bus you want. When you get there, the scrolling, 9 times out of 10 doesn't work, so you keep swiping your finger on the screen until it decides to move it. Then when to get to the stop you want , you have to keep polking it until it decides to open, most times you hit the stop and it shifts to the other direction. I miss the old version, where you plugged in the bus number and it went right to the route!

Thank you for your feedback. We fixed the scrolling issue in a recent app update. We also improved the navigation by adding the ability to choose your preferred default tab. To do this, just tap "More" and then "Default Tab." If you choose the "Status" tab, you will see your favorite lines and routes first whenever you open the app.
