It’s almost impossible to get around New York City without taking the subway, and to improve one’s experience; there are certain apps for iPhone that make getting around the Subway easier.

The Best Apple Apps for NYC Subway Navigation

An article by Apple Insider shares the apps that iPhone or iPad users can download to get around the Subway more easily. As noted, these apps help users navigate the NYC Subway better than the standard Maps.

Another article, Dixon Leasing, suggests the best apps for Apple users when navigating the New York City subways.

Here are the Top 5 iPhone New York Subway Apps for 2022

New York Subway MTA App

Upon downloading, the app comes with a free and premium version, and for those only in NYC for a short while, it doesn’t make sense to pay for the app. It’s advised to save the money for a much-needed cappuccino to survive the commute.

As per the article, this might not be the best choice for users who want the most UI/UX-friendly app since the map looks outdated. The article suggests that users should rather get a screenshot from Google Images’ NYC Subway Map as it gives almost the same results.

New York City Subway App

This app is a little lighter on the eyes but is described as slightly worse than the New York City App that comes with Google Chrome ads. The disadvantage of this app is that it doesn’t give information regarding a maintenance or track closure updates.

The risk is that without knowledge of maintenance or track closures, this could result in a huge waste of time for users that need to be rerouted repetitively. The app requires the newer iOS 13 to run and is a free app that comes with apps.

Apple Maps

This app combines the best of the New York Subway MTA App and the New York City Subway App. This app’s major benefit is that it is free and has a clear and crisp UI/UX.

The app makes it easy to track where the user is, where they want to go, and how they should get there. The app lets users know the fastest route to take from their exact location and provides options for driving, walking, cycling, or ride-sharing on top of transit (bus/metro).

City Mapper

This app is designed to help users navigate complex commute trips by indicating which subway they should take and where to get on or off. Aside from the subway, the app also helps users navigate buses and other n on-MTA options like the NJ Transit, PATH, and even Ferry options.

The best advantage of the app is it also provides an estimated price depending on when traveling. This lets them know how much they might have to pay depending on their commute option.

Waze Navigation & Live Traffic

This app is ranked #2 in the Navigation category as it includes crowdsourced traffic conditions letting users know which routes to take and which to avoid. The app also indicates construction and police activity and other situations that could provide more traffic.

Waze also has a unique way of providing an estimated arrival time depending on live traffic data. This will let users better estimate how long their trip might take.
