  • Schedule

    By razumikin
    I know you have little control over this, but at times your schedule is at odds with facts on the ground.
  • A new bug?

    By Bnanch
    This app used to work w family sharing but seems not to anymore?
  • Problems

    By Kdjdnchucjdjp
    Glitches. Routes not always right.
  • Newest update slowed refresh

    By TechFounder
    The most recent update somehow made the schedule updates take forever. The schedules say “loading” for about a minute or two.
  • Update broke the App 9-10-18

    This new update broke the app. I can’t see the busses where buses are because it stays in an constant search. Please fix ASAP.

  • Bus route update fast and accurate

    By Frankie 8888
    I was trying to catch bus Q15A on Roosevelt Ave . I try to find out how long I need to wait for the bus. This app give me the the information I need quickly and accurately. If there are problem with the bus, I can take another bus route. I do not have to waste my time waiting.

    My main app. Very reliable.
  • Shows multiple bus locations

    By assault_is_eternal
    I have several apps on my phone that give me location / schedule data on trains and buses in NYC, including the MTA’s new app. They each do something that the other doesn’t, so that’s why I still have multiple apps that do the same thing. What this app does that no other does is that it shows the GPS locations of all the buses on the route you choose. During rush hour, it’s very helpful to quickly see that you just missed a bus, but there’s another one coming. Other times, a packed bus comes by, but I can see that the next one is just around the corner, so I’ll wait for that one. The UI is has fallen behind, though. I have another app that train and bus info is displayed in a much more user friendly way (I use that one for non rush-hour travel). And the MTA app has become the only one I use for train times. Shocking, I know.
  • Best App for Public Transit Status

    By SohoYogi
    I have been using this app for years to track buses and subway status updates. I’ve used a bunch of different apps for these purposes, and BusNYC is hands-down the best.
