NYC’s MTA Releases An App For Tracking Subway Train Schedules

New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority has released a new iPhone app that lets subway riders track what time select subway trains are coming, in real time.

Subway riders can get up-to-the-minute information about what time their train will be in their station. Here is more from iTunes: “Knowing exactly when your train will arrive will reduce the time you spend waiting on the subway platform, and let you know of any service delays or reroutes before you pay your fare.”

At launch the app, called Subway Time, includes this information for the 1,2,3 lines, the 4,5,6 lines and the Shuttle.

NY1 has more: “Android and Windows versions are being developed and the MTA is also looking to include real-time arrival info on its website.”
