MTA TrainTime app reviews

  • It’s improved 5/5

    By JJ .. GO
    The service and website has improved. This makes it easy for the employees as well as customer service. I appreciate it.
  • Schedule 4/5

    By dalenjerry
    The website is not clear as to who has to transfer those going to grand central or those going to penn station
  • 👍 5/5

    By Pep pot
    It's very convenient it❤️
  • Annoying 2/5

    By yeya93
    It’s nice for everything to be in one place and up to date however the app does have some issues. Bought a ticket off peak because the schedule said that the train I wanted to take was off peak. This was not the case… had to pay extra once on the train. They need to work on the app accurately depicting schedules.
  • Great but could be better 5/5

    By Disayte
    I have not one reason to deter you from using this app. I am a student who visits his family every weekend and find it very useful in planning both spending my money and spending time with my family. Although, that dosent mean this app is perfect. This app could be taken to the next level by allowing a quicker and more accessible way to by the tickets, when activating or purchasing the tickets on the train you rarely are allowed service and the experience is slower.
  • Abysmal 1/5

    By GianCarloDeCarlo
    In the trust sense of the word. This app does not allow you to select your outbound and inbound trains before paying. I paid for a round trip hoping it would circle back to inbound but the circle just spins. Why is our nation’s rail system such a disaster.
  • Easy to use 5/5

    By NYer23
    The app works well and is easy to use
  • Poor updates 1/5

    By Tianlan Sé
    App map is delinquent in train status updates
  • Arrival time randomly changes 1/5

    By Walt1314
    Missed my train a few times, arrival time randomly updates between when I leave home and arrive at the train station. It at times can be very difficult and frustrating to plan a trip with this occurring in the mornings. Train was scheduled for 9:08 then updated to 9:03 without any warning, train showed up at the platform while I was walking and missed it. Not the first time this has happened. Need to fix this bug.
  • So convenient 5/5

    By Jamesariemer
    This app is lighting fast at letting me see my trains and get my tickets. Thank you!
  • Much improved & still needs some ease of use improvements 4/5

    By YogaVid
    Suggestions 1. Default to active ticket when activating app to speed conductor checking ticket 2. My MTA should be consolidated with Train Time into a single app - with easy access to ticket purchase and retrieval from any app screen I hate to say it, but NJ Transit app is still better. Look @ their user interface as inspiration.
  • Excellent! 5/5

    By Commutist
    I use this app regularly, it is easy and convenient. Love it!
  • Irritated 1/5

    By Tybias173636
    I’m always having WIFI trouble when it comes to this app and now suddenly I’m blocked from the app I’m not really sure what happened. A pop up would always say “Device Blocked. All ticketing functionality in the app has been disabled. Please call customer service at 511 to have your device Unblocked” And when I would call 511 I would get no help. additionally, the prices for peak and off-peak are a bit ridiculous.
  • Train schedule 3/5

    By Difficult andConfusing
    Very difficult to use. Very unreliable. Go back to old schedule
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By Wonder_lover
    Informative and easy to navigate!
  • Can’t buy off peak? 1/5

    By CableConvert
    Using this for the first time and my round trip clearly says off-peak, but the only option to buy tickets is peak. What’s the purpose of the ability to buy tickets through the app if the prices are jacked up?
  • HORRIBLE 1/5

    By Bdinspired
  • Limited time tables . 3/5

    By Noley cannoli
    You do not have a 24 hour timetable for people to understand the day before what morning trains, they could make this is really ridiculous
  • Some delay activating ticket at Grand Central Tunnel 3/5

    Will the wifi be improved underground when trying to activate tickets on my Apple I - Phone ?
  • App isn’t working since LIRR update. 1/5

    By Zeodre
    I just bought a ticket, got a receipt for it, but didn’t receive the ticket.
  • Security code every time what a drag 1/5

    By ct323i
    Why do I always have to enter my security code every time I buy a ticket? What’s the point of even storing my credit card?? No other app that stores your cc requires this annoying step! It also logs you out all the time for no apparent reason. It doesn’t even remember your username. This app needs serious improvement!
  • New Services 1/5

    The new service is the worst for me. It's turned into a service where I can't rest comfortably until my destination. I've been riding it for 10 years, but this is too much.😡🥵😭😤😫
  • Horrible update. Unusable. 1/5

    By Easy129
    Just updated the app and none of the search or ticket features work! The application crashes when you try to choose a station, either to look up or schedules or buy tickets. Completely useless!
  • Intuitive and fast 5/5

    By reloading funds
    This app has no sluggish feeling, quickly gets you the info you need. It’s also smartly designed to have the buttons and commands where you need them. Easy to pay and store your tickets. No glitches so far!
  • Much improved 5/5

    By SailorSki775
    It’s way easier now to use now that train times and ticketing have been combined into one app. Additionally they recently rolled out multi-station input into the trip planner, super useful if you live between two stations or on a spur line.
  • Traveling on the LIRR 5/5

    By TessieT16
    I find the website easy to use. It takes a little time to get used to. Great that it includes the Track number.
  • Awesome app! 5/5

    By CDTECH69
    It just simply works. Quick, easy to maneuver and super responsive when needing to purchase that rail ticket on the run.
  • Save a trip 3/5

    By RobDan3
    Intuitive save trip needs work as does going back to search for more trips.
  • App Crashing 1/5

    By dTunes5
    App immediately crashes when trying to select a station to see schedules or buy a ticket.
  • Train time app 5/5

    By su nori
    Easy to use and accurate info at all times
  • Horrible app that crashes constantly 1/5

    By Haksawkid
    The app updated three days ago and is unusable. Do they not test it before releasing updates? It launches but no matter what you click on it crashes immediately.
  • Non-Functional App 1/5

    By Caribbean Blues
    This app crashes every time I click on a button in the app and is unusable! I can’t buy a ticket through the app now so what is the point?
  • Amazing 5/5

    The one good thing that actually came out of MTA. Did a great job on the app.
  • App is crashing on iOS 16.3.1 1/5

    By ny3ranger
    When buying ticket, touching the from or to station immediately crashing the app. Please help!!!
  • App review 5/5

    By Kims22K
    This app is easy to use and very accurate! Helps me get to where I need to go without the stress
  • Good but locked out of certain things 4/5

    By thebird85
    This app is way better than previous MTA apps. However, I have an old email address associated with my account and there doesn’t seem to be anyway to change the email associated with my account. I’ve hunted online for a fix, but I haven’t found any explanation.
  • Offline schedules not working. 2/5

    By RobC1
    Never seems to be able to show schedules when I am on the subway disconnected from Internet I’m sure it used to have offline schedules that could check, just wouldn’t show delays or platform numbers.
  • Perfect 5/5

    By Treeswamp25
    Has everything you need to know, is easy to use and is always accurate to the minute!
  • While it’s great to buy tickets in the go 5/5

    By Jpari
    it’s hard to tell which app I need to open to buy the tickets. Sometimes the links don’t quite work.
  • The Best Municipal App of All Time 5/5

    By EliHoya
    The MTA proved that you can go in-house without sacrificing quality. This app is a stunner. It boasts an attractive, very intuitive UI and it’s packed with features. Its developers are clearly rail *fans,* not just employees— they load up easter eggs and always anticipate service changes and respond well to interruptions. My favorite feature might be the car capacity monitor— it saved my life during peak COVID. This app makes me look forward to riding the LIRR!
  • Stopped accepting payment 1/5

    By Nsingh25
    As of Feb 2023, the app no longer allows the purchase of tickets or monthly passes on iOS. Constant “111” error. Have tried with multiple credit cards, redownloaded the app on multiple phones, created new accounts, etc. So… how exactly am I supposed to buy my monthly pass and take the train if the app is the only game in town?
  • Dope 5/5

    By tamybeez
    Supper cool app to use
  • Happy user! 5/5

    By Love accuweather
    I’ve been using this app for a couple months and it is so easy to use and it’s always accurate (sometimes even more accurate than the arrival clock on the platform!). I love how I can bookmark/save trips. The Tickets section is really easy to use and it’s great to have all my purchased tickets right there and ready to be activated. My only piece of feedback is that I would be great to get more info on the tickets types and when they expire. It’s probably in a FAQ but if there was a little info icon next to the ticket types to just clarify the terms that would be really helpful. I highly recommend this app!
  • Getting charged multiple times 2/5

    Past few tickets wouldn’t go through but it would still charge me…
  • Make option to show all train times for the day 4/5

    By MrRubiksSC
    Overall great app. In the trips tab, there should be an option to show all the train times for the day and be able to load the next day etc (rather than me having to press "depart at" just to see when the next train 3 hours later will come)
  • 👎🏻 1/5

    By 122::::
    Bad service
  • Refuses to connect over VPN 1/5

    By Chronomist
    If my VPN is connected this app erroneously says there is no internet connection. There can be no reason to require a non-VPN connection other than pettiness or programmers flexing the latest trend.
  • Great app 5/5

    By jimwitkin
    Highly recommend
  • GARBAGE 1/5

    By Emt60
    If you complain to the MTA about safety conditions onboard their train via the in-app chat, they disable your ability to use the chat. Lazy do nothing employees run this agency. Abolish it and privatize it.
