Live departures for all NYC Subway lines
It's time for some good news about your Subway, straphangers. No, really. Hey - stop laughing. We're serious.
Everybody knows about the major problems facing the MTA, but what about the day-to-day commuting hassle of not knowing when the next train is coming?

With the addition of the 7, Citymapper now has accurate live departure information for all lettered and numbered lines!
That's right. No more 1534 minute waits...at least not on the platform. You can check live departure times before you head out the door. An added bonus: no more having to hunt for countdown clocks hung in weird places!

All you have to do is tap 'Get Me Somewhere' and we'll...um...get you there. We'll give you the best option, based on what is happening at that exact moment, without you having to read, think about, or decipher anything!
Now...time to see if Gobot can figure out how to improve Subway switches and signalling...
