Whether you are here on a little sightseeing vacation or just settled in the Big Apple, you can't go around New York without knowing its subway. It has been a part of the city’s history, its identity, and the way of life for millions of its people. Here is an app that addresses all the basic needs of any subway commuter so you won’t fall behind!

Get updates both from official announcements from the MTA as well as real-time posts by New Yorkers themselves. See the status of all the lines, including LIRR and Metro-North. Transfer between trains quickly by knowing how they are all connected right here on this app!

▲To learn about the status of a particular railway line, simply tap on it.

▲There are two kinds of status updates. One is any official statement from the New York City Transit Authority. The other is from New Yorkers themselves!

▲There are also tabs for LIRR and the Metro-North lines.

▲Tap here to get the whole map of the New York City Subway.

▲The app can also help you in all the transfers you need to make on your commute.

The combination of both official statements from the authorities and the tweets of New Yorkers makes for a richly informative experience that covers everything. Official announcements can tell you if a line is in operation but the word on the street might alert you to something as equally important such as a broken elevator or an ongoing flash mob. In a city that never sleeps, you’re going to need all that info so you’ll never miss a train.
