Introducing MTA Subway Time® App

Now know when the subway will arrive at your station.

The MTA has beta launched iPhone and iTouch versions of the widely popular subway countdown clocks which provide real-time train arrival information for all stations on the 1 subway2 subway3 subway4 subway5 subway6 subway and S subway 42 St Shuttle lines. Now subway riders will have access to the information on in-station countdown clocks from homes, offices, or while on the go.

Now available in the Apple App Store, this free-to-download app shares the same features as the desktop version - just select your subway line and station and get the next train arrival times in both directions.

The app covers the 153 stations where the MTA has installed countdown clocks that provide arrival estimates in minutes for upcoming trains. This app joins MTA Bus Time™, Metro-North Train Time™, LIRR Train Time™, and MTA Bridges and Tunnels' Travel Time in the MTA's expanding list of real-time data tools for customers.

Key features include:

  • Easy to load and easy to use: The opening screen displays icons for the subway lines served by the app. Select a line to see all the stations it serves, then select a station to see real-time arrival estimates for up to nine trains approaching that station from each direction. For simplicity, stations that serve multiple lines show all trains combined in a single list.
  • Easy to refresh: The arrival time estimates can be refreshed anytime by touching the icon in the upper right of the screen. The exact time the data was provided is displayed at the bottom of the screen.
  • Includes service changes: The app is synchronized with Service Status on the website displaying planned service changes and real-time service disruptions.

The Subway Time® for Mobile app was prepared by developers at the MTA.
