To download, point your BlackBerry to and select NYC Subway

It finds the fastest route between any two stations taking the current schedules into account, then provides you with the trip details including departure and arrival times, as well as waits between transfers.

You can use the map to find the closest station to any location on the map or select the line and then subway stop. Either way just a few clicks and you are on your way. It even works when you're offline underground.

A note on performance

If you tried our RailBandit app for train schedules, you know how fast it is.

New York Subway application is slower calculating the trips (especially trips involving two connections) because New York Subway is a very large system (consisting of 24 interconnected lines) with thousands of trains running around the clock, and this number is even greater during the peak hours. Depending on your phone, calculation can take between 20-30 seconds during the peak hours and even longer on older phones.
