Excellent and can be even better! It's super fast to see the train arrival times. I would want an ad-free, premium version. It's a stretch, but maybe there can be an indicator or animation when the user taps on a station dot, affirming the dot was touched. This is a lightweight and very informative app for New Yorkers!

Unironically the best subway map for NYC as of right now. All it does is tell the next train at the stop you're at, which 99% of the time is all you need. Perfect as a companion app, please don't make it an "all-in-one". Only request is for the NYC map to update to nighttime when significanct

Click on a station on the map to see real time arrivals at the station. The information is as accurate as it gets (agrees with the signage in the station). Great for anticipating if you have to hurry to make a connection or if it's worth waiting for an express.

Hurrying for a connection is exactly what we designed the app for. Thank you so much for your kind words and five-star review! Um, disclaimer about data quality. The MTA supplies our real-time data, so when they have errors, we do too.

What's new

This update includes the April 2024 subway map published by the MTA. In addition, PATH arrivals are always fetched for Manhattan stations: Herald Sq, 23rd St, 14th St, 9th St, Christopher St, and WTC.
