I have been using the river line light rail for a week now. I must say with all the negativity surrounding NJ Transit these days, I was very impressed. The train has been on tine, clean and a pleasant riding experience. I will definitely continue riding the river line light rail and will highly recommend it to future riders. Thanks NJ Transit.
Just not enough info. 2/5
No track, no cost,
Doesn’t take Dinky into account 3/5
Several weeks ago there was no Dinky and no replacement bus. Those of us waiting had to take Lyft or Uber and missed one or two trains. Having an on-line schedule doesn’t compensate for poor NJ Transit service!
Sold out for Ads 1/5
Have had this app for years and always loved it. Recently the amount of ads they throw at your is overwhelming. Seems like every other touch of the screen is interrupted with an advertisement.
Predicted Track 2/5
By Michael Colletti
The predicted track for every train is wrong. Don’t subscribe to the app by paying. Use the free version with ads.
Worse Than Useless 1/5
Not much point in using an app that doesn't have the correct timetables loaded. The train I'm writing this on doesn't appear in the app's schedule.
Metuchen station 5/5
Awesome.. on time and with AC..
Thxs NJ Transit
NJT Bus never loads! 1/5
App has glitches that affects the updates. 3/5
By What The Hell Boy!
It could be better
Don’t update 1/5
This app was a simple scheduling utility without intrusive ads. Recent updates have made the UI more complex, slower, and added much more intrusive ads.
Handy app 5/5
I finally found a NJ transit app that shows real time activity. I had similar apps but they were no where near as good as this one. It’s easy to use and very handy to have.
No ontine 2/5
App was great but has consistently gotten worse. Ads that block entire screen and now what seems to be a mandatory new feature that won’t let you see schedule unless it installs and keeps track of you. Another invasion of privacy.
Great App 5/5
It’s awesome seeing all the stops and how many minutes to our destination- 1st Time using the NJT and this app made it super easy!!! Thanks
Once you enter your information it works well. I just wish there was an option to keep multiple train lines
Fast easy way to check the schedule of your train or bus.
Software update on iPad changed how app looks 1/5
Now this app is as bad as the one on my phone. On my iPad in the store it looks like the examples in the iTunes Store but when I open it, it’s not the same anymore after I updated my software. It’s a different version and no longer has the updated time for each stop
Love this Rail APP!! 5/5
Always gets me home on time!!!!
Constantly shuts off 1/5
As soon as i click on the train i want to view the app closes
I’ve tried emailing your support but the message failed. How does one work the new Siri feature?
BTW this is my goto app for train schedules!
Helpful app! 4/5
Easy to use.
Bus delays 1/5
By Sick and tire
There should be an announcement when buses are delayed. It’s ridiculous that you wait around and no one tells you anything. This is not good customer relations . NJ transit needs to get better.
No Schedule 2/5
Latest version I have cannot pull any of the schedules!!
OnTime app 5/5
Awesome and accurate app. Also works underground and in tunnels which is a plus. Love Love Love it
A life saver 5/5
This app has made calculating my commute much easier. Thank you.
Handy App to Plan Your Train Trip 5/5
Pretty darn accurate, especially considering it has to track insanely inconsistent NJTransit. Updates trips by the minute - super helpful
Very good app; usually accurate.
By njt late agan
Not accurate when there are delays 2/5
I initially was so happy to download an OnTime app but unfortunately your app is NOT ON TIME at all !!! Waited almost 2hr for a train into nyc penn last week and sat on a delayed train for almost an hour out of penn last week .. your app did not show any delays .. zip/ nada
Where’s the real time info? 1/5
The app was great when it gave me real time info and told me how late a train was running. Now it doesn’t even tell me if a train has been canceled. What happened?!?
Too hard to use not easy to use
Haven’t had any issues thus far. Works just the way i expected
Most accurate app I’ve found 5/5
Easy to use and very accurate info. Best app for NJTransit. I’ve tried others but dumped them for this app
Recent updates make it almost unusable 2/5
By James Nostack
Updates in early 2018 have made a reliable app not just visually confusing, but almost unworkable. When I want trains from Point A to Point B, the app gives me trains running in BOTH directions, including a few departing from Point C, and some that never stop at Point B at all.
This app used to have simple, uncluttered interface with a clean look that told you exactly what you needed to know. It is now crowded with irrelevant or misleading information in a visually unappealing way. I would honestly rather get the schedule from my web browser than from this almost-broken app.
Designers, please note:
* simple, soothing color palette, ideally against a black background. This is a train schedule.
* If someone wants trains FROM New York Penn Station, do not include trains TO New York Penn Station. “From” and “to” are important to get right when reading train schedules.
* If someone wants trains TO New Brunswick, do not include trains that don’t stop at New Brunswick.
* Having 6-7 visible countdowns for departing trains (most of which are irrelevant because of destinations of origin points) is visually stressful. I can look at what time the train departs, compare it to the current time, and have a rough idea. A countdown adds very little to a single train and is annoying when running for multiple trains simultaneously.
I seldom write reviews, but the version of this app in 2017 was very solid and had a good UX. The current version is unpleasant and uninformative.
Great App! 5/5
Love this app better than my Transit app!
Real Time Stop Information 1/5
This app WAS great. Now it doesn’t show when the train ACTUALLY will and does arrive at stops. It says the train arrived, but it didn’t. The stops should show actual departures and predicted arrivals/departures so I can estimate when I’ll really be home.
Terrible Update 1/5
This used to be a great app
Now it is almost impossible to navigate.
Please return to the older version!
This app has one real purpose, to provide accurate timing information for the trains. It fails to do this. Therefore, this app has no purpose.
Liked the old version 2/5
The old version showed delays and timing of arrivals more precisely. This one does not seem to show change in arrival times at station when trains are delayed. The app shows train arrived at scheduled time when it has not reached station. Disappointing
Older version was better 1/5
Older version knew where I was and showed me current schedule. Now I have to type it in each time. Old version told me about delays. Now it says it has passed my station even when it hasn’t. This version is useless!
Latest version made it unusable 1/5
You must be kidding, this version pushes some stupid ads inside the train schedule. Drive UBER, take a LYFT, really? Its so annoying that I am uninstalling this app.
Update wrecked this app 1/5
This was a very useful app until I updated it today. Supposedly the update “fixed crashes,” but now the app crashes within seconds of opening. It’s worse than useless, because of the frustration and wasted time waiting for it to open.
Horrible New Design 1/5
The old version was way better, it’s so cluttered and confusing now, who wants to follow a train or check in. Just show me the time and track number. I could care less about LYFT I got the app if I need a cab. For commuting in to NYC everyday I will never use this app again.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it 1/5
Was great - now crap
Why didn’t you leave it alone?
What happened 1/5
By Sara Marceline
How sad. This used to be a simple easy to use app. Now it’s big letters, big icons, hard to use 😒
Keeps crashing 1/5
No idea how an app with a simple train schedule can get so complicated. The prior version was easy and accurate. The prior version was miles better than the official NJT app! I can’t load favorite stations or routes without app crashing in iOS 11.2.6. Most users want a static starting and ending station. That’s all. Don’t waste your time downloading this app. I have to give it one star to submit. It doesn’t deserve a star.
Crashing all the time 1/5
This new app is crashing all the time and is USELESS!!! Do something or bring back the old one!
WHY?!?!?! If it ain’t broke don’t fix it 1/5
I used to LOVED this app. I just needed train schedule and alerts. And I used to find this WAY more user friendly than NJT which is basically useless except when the departure vision works. Today a whole new app was downloaded in its place with bells and whistles I don’t need. I liked this app because it needed little to no WiFi to get my info FAST. simple and quick. Now I can’t even set my favorite stations. It crashes every two seconds and deletes my stations for NJT on the upload. Again WHY!!??? This was a 4-5 Star app as far as I was concerned and now it’s a -1. Bring it back!!! 😭
Please give me back the last version!!! 1/5
The new update deleted all my saved routes, doesn’t go to the home location as it used to and it crashes any time I try to save or change settings. Maybe it’s not built fir iPhone7 but the why auto update?????
Please let me go back. This app is not very helpful now
