Been waiting 6 years for a ‘real time’ feature for Path scheduling. Was incredibly frustrating in the past, especially on weekends, to plan your day around a train departure and then miss it because it came 5 min early and then have to wait up to 30 for the next one. Just the real time option on this app inspires 5 stars from me. Other options are also appreciated, like the saved favorites, though you should be able to save more than one favorite route and then scroll through them quickly whenever wanted.
The app is quite visually helpful, but it appears to only show scheduled departures. So, where the app says the next train to leave the WTC is a Hoboken train, all too often a Newark train comes in after the Hoboken train, but leaves before the Hoboken train, and vice versa. This is annoying because the trains leave from different platforms, and since PATH does not provide announcements about which train is actually leaving first, this app ends up providing frustration for those passengers who only want to go to Exchange Place. This occurs at least once or twice a week. The app also does not take into account trains that are taken out of service late in the rush hour. So while there may be a 10:12 train leaving on the Newark platform, when it arrives and is marked “no passengers,” you may or may not have time to get to the Hoboken platform and the train that is sitting there, ready to leave. Until PATH IT improves its software to be more accurate, I recommend not bothering to download it, remove it if you already have it, or ignore its information for now, or at least take that information with a large grain of salt. Maybe this app will be useful in some future version.
Introduce Tap-and-Pay link NYC metro
It would be great if you can Introduce a feature to add a smartlink card in PATH app, use the tap and pay/swipe/access the entrance gates at PATH stations. You already have an example very nearby in 14th street metro stations for 4,5,6 lines, where you can add a Mastercard or AMEX card to your mobile wallet like Apple or Google Pay and get through the entrance gates without even needing to buy a metro/PATH/smartlink card and all the hassle around loading and reloading path/smartlink cards and standing in lines when u got to catch a train on a busy day or hour. Please think and improve the application.
App is as useful as the escalator at Grove Street
Claim: pushes real-time alerts and travel info when you arrive at the station. Reality: pushes the published timetable. Actual arrival/departure times and info about delays are NOT sent. For instance, service was delayed this morning and yesterday, yet the app did not send that info when I arrived at the station either day. Claim: Includes maps of the PATH system. Reality: The maps are tiny and unreadable on a phone and you cannot scroll/zoom. Claim: This is a useful new tool for PATH commuters. Reality: it looks like a high school kid’s coding project and you still need to follow PATHtrain on twitter to get delay alerts. The only positive thing I can say is that getting the scheduled departure times sent to your phone beats watching the departure times scroll sllllowwwwwllllyyyyy across the bottom of a PATHvision screen.
Features Don’t Work
This app should be much simpler and more intuitive to use. And to top it off, many features don’t work. For instance, when you select a route from the schedule section, the route doesn’t come up. This seems to be a glitch since this feature is highlighted on the advertisements and when you select the route it gets highlighted for a moment but then nothing happens.
As useful as the path was on time during PTC
The app requires an internet connection to update the schedule, so good luck using it anywhere but WTC. It currently won’t load the schedule for me, even though I’m at WTC with internet connection. It was quicker for me to view the train schedule on their website via safari, making this app useless. I wish dissapointedpig would come back and update its path app. It was a million times better.
Please let me know if you plan to implement the following (most ideas shared with the great “path schedule” app thats been the only working app on ios for years): 1) ability to easily click-in the times on front page settings to see intermediary station route and times 2) ability to see several recent station times that just expired 3) Hoboken to nj should still show the 11:31 and 11:51 PM weekday JSQ trains as next available as opposed to blank 4) ability to set favorite station to default “to Nj/Ny” scroll 5) ability to default “favorite vs to Ny/NJ” preferred tab. I’d prefer to default to one of latter as its inclusive of multiple routes Thank you
“Real time “ isn’t accurate
The app is fine they added a real time tab and it’s horribly inaccurate. It’s always about 5-10 minutes off which is very inconvenient.
Good real time info, notifications broken
I like the real time info. But alerts don’t actually get pushed as notifications on the phone. Additionally there is no integration with smart link.
Use it everyday to confirm time schedule....now if only the PATH trains were also on time will even be better!
I love this app! Straightforward. No excessive notifications. I’m always working during my commute and I’m never interrupted by notifications!
Not at all accurate. Trains do not match up to the actual time the trains arrive and depart! Get it together! I have wasted so much time on the platform or waiting for the train which has made me late to everything.
Much easier to get the schedules than going to the PATH website
Better PATH experience
This app has turned into my go-to app for my morning and evening commute
Schedule never available. Not useful at all.
Always buffering. The schedule never appears. Only the “alerts” section works, which provides info that is never useful to me. Prefer the path schedule app by disappointedpig, which gives me the schedule at least.
