MTA LIRR's Free Train Time® App Just Got Smarter

Customers Can Download Improved Version of Popular App Starting Right Now

MTA Long Island Rail Road is proud to introduce the newest version of its popular “TrainTime” mobile app with improvements that make it easier than ever for LIRR customers to obtain the most up-to- date train information available.

Among the new features of Train Time are an easier to use Station Picker Screen, improved Arrival Countdown Screen, enhanced Trip Search capability, detailed station parking information and a new server that enables the LIRR to handle more than 2,000 Train Time requests per minute, a capacity upgrade meant to meet demand during service interruptions.

With the new app, basic train information is now available even when a customer can't locate cellular service. This latest version of TrainTime was developed by the LIRR with the help of customer feedback that began to arrive soon after the original app went public.

“Since the Long Island Rail Road introduced its TrainTime app for mobile phones – both Android and iOS - last December, more than 170,000 customers have downloaded the program and made it their go-to source for all sorts of up-to-the minute LIRR information,” said LIRR President Patrick A. Nowakowski. “Now, we are inviting customers to upgrade – free of charge of course - to our updated TrainTime service to take advantage of the new bells and whistles.”

TrainTime is your official source of LIRR information that gives you everything you need to know in the palm of your hand – including the ability to get station information, real-time service conditions, social media links, news, deals & getaways, maps, policies and other beneficial information.
