NextStop is the app for New York City Subway riders who don’t like to waste a minute. At a quick glance, it tells you when the next train is scheduled to arrive based on your current location, selected station, or pre-defined favorites. With this information in hand, it’s easy to figure out the quickest route between point A and point B.

A green dot indicates that the countdown is based on a recent, realtime location of the train. A gray dot indicates that the countdown is based on MTA timetables (pre-published schedules). See the help screen for more details.

- Displays your favorite stations based on time of day (morning commute, evening commute, etc.).
- Shows upcoming stops at all stations near your current location.
- Shows upcoming stops (including times) for selected train.
- Includes the official MTA map. Clicking a station displays upcoming stops for that station.
- Allows browsing of lines and stations to find next stop for any train.
- Displays MTA service alerts (delays, service changes) and advisories (planned work, etc).

NextStop is officially licensed by the MTA and all graphics are used with permission.

Update got rid of my fav feature

I really liked using this app for planning ahead, but the feature to chose a time other than the current time does not appear to have made it into the new update. Since I never use the 2nd ave line I kinda wish I hadn't updated it at all. Please bring back the option to view other times besides the current one.

Finally Updated!

This has always been the best transit app for subway arrival times. I used it religiously but then stopped because it stopped being updated with the 7 extension, Second Av Subway and the return of the W. I had deleted it a while ago because it was so outdated until my friend just showed me that it was finally updated. Now let’s please keep this up to date! Thank you!

Developer Response ,

NextStop has been updated with the latest map, schedules, etc. realtime arrivals for most lines, and automatic updates to help prevent it from getting out of date again. The original app was _really_ old in iOS years and it was a major effort to bring it up to current standards, but that's done now and it should be good to go for years to come. Please take another look.

So happy there was FINALLY an update

I can't believe this app FINALLY got updated after several years. Yay. There do appear to be a few small bugs and I really hope the developer keeps working to improve it. For example, my badge numbers on the train alerts page show up behind the delays & changes boxes.
