New York Subway

The most interactive NYC subway map you’ll find covering both New York and Staten Island.


The New York Subway app completely takes the stress away from travelling around the Big Apple. It’s easy to use and includes the most up to date information from the official Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) making it the perfect NYC subway map.

New York Subway uses the officially licensed MTA map and live open data to give you all you need to get around NYC stress free.

The easiest way to travel around New York

Choose two points in New York and the route planner will show you the easiest and quickest ways to get there by subway – it’s as easy as that! You can route to any station, as well as many popular tourist attractions, and there’s helpful information like how long your journey will take and the number of stations you will pass along the way.

Service status

See at a glance if you’ll be travelling with a “good service” or if there is any “planned work” that could affect your journey. The Service Status page is organised by colour so you can quickly find what you need and for a detailed description simply tap for more information. Set notifications so you can be the first to know when there has been a change to a service you use.

You can find more information on notifications here.

– Did you know –

Using the excuse “my subway was delayed” with your boss may not be the best idea as employers can request delay verifications from MTA.

Official NYC subway map

New York Subway uses the official MTA subway map, including Staten Island. The map is easy to use as you can zoom, scroll and click onto any station for more information. For the best experience you can find stations on the map by using the simple search bar to search by name or by choosing one of the nearby stations.

Schedule arrival boards

Selecting a station and clicking ‘Arrival Boards’ will give you a full schedule of the next available Subway trains – so no more standing around unsure how long you’ll be waiting for. Useful information about where that train is heading and in which direction is included, as well as details on if a train is on time, delayed or cancelled.

During off-peak hours conductors will often hold trains to wait for passengers transferring from other platforms. The same cannot be said during peak!
