I am not using this as a computer I’m using this as a train tracking tool because I am a railfan And I like to look at all the info of the trains one thing I feel like they should update is just like on the myLIRR app they should put the type of train next to it without having to click the blue arrow. Example M3 M7 M9. If you are Reading this please do that and it will make me add it up to 10 stars that’s what would make this app so much better in my opinion and a little bit easier to use. If you are reading this last sentence thank you for reading my review I appreciate your time and if you are MTA please implement that feature thanks again!

Brand new app is fast and clean

The all-new design is night and day compared to the old app. New one is so much simpler, cleaner, and faster. It flies. Have yet to try all the new features like in-car seat tracking region but it looks interesting. This is exactly what the app needed: a fresh coat of paint. The new icon is dope too. Good job MTA. Now do the eTix app too. One suggestion: I’d like to favorite frequently traveled on trips. I.e. penn station to Woodside and vice versa. that way I don’t need to type “from” and “to” every time. Hiding “favorites” in the More tab doesn’t do much for users. The favorites also isn’t a frequently commuted bookmark.

The LIRR lifesaving app we’ve been waiting for

Ok wow. This is the kind of app we’ve been needing for the LIRR for so long rather than the clunky outdated older one. Super simple yet streamlined interface makes everything seamless and right where you expect it to be. Also the ability to see how FULL each individual train is? Wow. So cool and useful. Amazing job to the developers of this one.
