MTA is launching the “Essential Connector” service so we can get essential personnel where they need to go. Between 1:00am and 5:00am the subway system will be closed for deep cleaning. We’ll be running enhanced bus service during this time but if that doesn’t work for you we’ll be providing for-hire vehicle at no cost.

PLAN A TRIP USING ESSENTIAL BUS SERVICE. Find out how to commute using regular service during the day and enhanced bus service overnight.
BOOK YOUR ESSENTIAL COMMUTE. Plan your essential commute and book available for-hire vehicles between 1:00am and 4:45am, free of charge.

LIVE DEPARTURES. Tap a station on the map to see live departures, including the last train arrivals of the night and available buses nearby. Plus, get info on current service disruptions and upcoming service changes.
PERSONALIZED MAP. Over time your map will highlight the stops you use most often, making it easier to plan your trips

What’s New

Version 1.4.0

Thank you for using Essential Connector! We update the app regularly to make the experience better for you. This version includes:
- If your for-hire ride is cancelled we can now tell you why.
- For-hire options are now ordered by pickup time. The service that can collect you sooner will be at the top of the list.
- Get quick access to journeys to your home or the destination you have searched last, from the Here & Now map.

From start not so great

I order the ride when the car got to my house and I went in, the driver he was on phone talk to someone and then few minutes later he told me I can’t take you. I was mad but the company did call back and got me new ride

I am able to effectively plan my travel at all times, and am receiving customized alerts relevant to where I live and work. Very well executed!

Loading screen

Since I downloaded the app it has not been great. The map doesn’t show the drivers location neither your own. It continues trying to load the next screen. I have to keep referring to the website to book my trips.
