Getting around on the MTA system in New York City doesn't have to be overwhelming! With My Transit NYC, you'll have metro and bus maps with real-time schedules and arrival time updates at your fingertips.

Use the trip planners and step-by-step live navigation for a fool-proof way to reach your destination. With both of these apps, even in the city that never sleeps, you'll rest easy knowing you won't have to stress over public transportation again!

MyTransit has detailed schedules for every metro line and bus route in the NYC metro area, but users should know that the timetable schedules are only available by line and not by station.

Transit Tracks (android) & Transit Stop (ios)

Chi-Town at your fingertips! Transit Tracks gives you colorful and easy-to-find information about CTA rail and bus lines, with stop-by-stop details on your Android. Find all nearby stops on your map and get updated transit times straight from the official CTA tracker. Your recent and favorite stops are saved for easy access.

Both apps are amazing for getting the most up to date public transportation details, but they are not ideal if you're in need of specific directions or route planning to get from one place to another. However, the detailed maps in both apps will still show you all the major streets, attractions, and businesses along with bus and metro stops, so you can easily find the best route to take.
