Ok, but improvements needed
While the app serves the basic purpose of finding train times, it could use a lot of work. I find that the app rarely reflects accurate delay times. In addition, trains are no longer listed after their scheduled departure time, making it impossible to look at status of the train while you are onboard or if you are trying to pick someone up (I would suggest showing arrival times).
The app lets select your home and destination station to easily search for trains without having to re-select these every time (helpful). However, this feature only works if you are looking for trains in the next few hours. If you want to search for a train for later in the day or the next day you are not able to select your saved stations. If you search for trains in the future (for example, the next day) there is a flaw which only shows trains after the time you select. So if you are searching for trains that depart at around 6, a 5:59 train would not appear on the list, but a 6:59 train would.
Missing some obvious information
Overall the app works fine if you want to find a train departure that gets you to a specific statio at a specific time. But the app falls short in providing some basic information if you deviate from that singular use case.
For example, I’m on a train to Stamford and want to see what stops it’s going to make to determine if I could get off at Cos Cob — the app does not make it easy to search for the train I’m on (ie- I can’t search for a train departure in the past, so I can’t repeat the search I used to find my current train) and even if I could find the specific train I’m on, the app does not list all the stops the train is making, so I couldn’t easily determine if the train goes to the additional station.
Why is it so hard to serve up MNR status data that’s available on station boards
The latest update broke everything for me, on iPhone Xr running latest iOS. This appears to be the case for others as well, based on recent reviews. I need the app twice a day—when I’m en route to the train station during morning and evening commute—to view upcoming local and express options plus on-time status, and to decide if I need to hustle or can I walk. There are numerous boards at the station which could tell me these things (if I was already inside the station)... how could it possibly be so hard to push that data to an app!? The other “MyMTA” app is also useless for this purpose, somehow. At this point it would literally be easier for them to just post a webcam in the middle of GCT, pointed at the video screens, and let people login to watch it if they need to know train status. Because apparently in 2019 this agency can’t seem to figure out how to send a series of numbers to two places at once.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
