The official LIRR app has info that you can't find anywhere else, including
realtime location, crowding, and push notifications. Whether you're new to the

The LIRR Train Time application is a resourceful aid for those who use the Long Island Rail Road daily or even for those who use it sparingly as it provides information for all aspects of the service. From arrival times to station information, from ticket prices to service alerts, to the latest news to trip planners the app has it covered. The design while a bit cluttered due to the enormous amount of information provided does not hamper ease of use. Users of the Metro North Train Time application can expect the same UI design so there is no learning curve. This app is even more beneficial now due to the recent service changes and disruptions the LIRR is going through and will be going through for the next couple of months. Users can just check the app to see what stations are affected, and see what connecting services can be used to avoid them. Regular users of the LIRR service need to have this application above all other s as you get a complete view and guide of the transit experience.
Great but room for improvement
Great app, I use it whenever I'm traveling on a slightly different schedule than usual and need to know my options. Just two pieces of feedback: 1. Having the pop up about trains being rescheduled EVERY time I open the app is kind of overkill. When there's construction all summer long and I have seen this message before - I just want to find my train info, I wish there would be some kind of "don't show this again" option. Or at least the message could be a banner at the top instead of an in-your-face, urgent looking full-screen message. 2. One great feature to add would be track information for trains. When I'm going to be running for a train, or if I'm not in a place where I can hear the station announcements and need to get to the right track, it would be super helpful to be able to check the app and find that information.
Alerts are not in real time.
The app doesn’t actually give you accurate readings of when the train is coming. Today the app stated the ronkonkoma was running fine. After leaving my house in the snow, I show up to find out that line isn’t running at all. So why do you need the app? You’re better off just getting a regular schedule online, or through paper. They connect fancy things like lyft which is helpful, but we need to actually simply just know if the trains are running or not. It’s that simple. Making your app fancier, won’t necessarily bring more value to the customers if it’s actual purpose isn’t functioning.
Clean, Simple, Easy to Use
This clean and simple app is easy to use and better than the newer MY MTA app. I would give it 5 stars if they would show the entire train route (ie before AND after your selected trip). I’d like to know if my station is the 7th or 2nd stop on the route. It makes a big difference as to whether or not I can get a seat and ultimately whether or not I will want to take that particular scheduled train. PLEASE ADD THAT FEATURE -even if it’s greyed out.
Disaster of an app
The MTA ought to be ashamed of themselves for this complete screw-up. If the app’s main role is to replace paper schedules, this is a total failure. Why? It’s just simply wrong. The schedule it displays is not, in fact, the schedule at all. Some scheduled trains are not listed, other times provided as departure times are incorrect. The electronic station signs provide accurate information. But, of course, the idea is for riders to know the schedule before arriving at their station. If you’re searching for a more reliable, and feature-rich LIRR mobile app, try the onTime app. Not perfect, but far more accurate, for sure.
I like the app a lot !!
I'm usually quite critical of the way apps function but I seem to think this app gets the job done really well. Sometimes I'd miss trains because the times on the timetable is confusing to read but with this app I can see exactly when my train is coming, the number of stops, and when I arrive. I enjoy this app a lot so kudos to you MTA.
Worth the download
The app does what it says and gives the right time of when a train is coming in and on what platform as well as updates fast (if you click update) to any changes that may of happen. It also can give you an offline schedule if you don't have connect to the internet. The only big problem I had is it never saves my favorites.
I use the this app pretty frequently so I use the ‘star’⭐️ a station to favorite it. The stations that I favorite NEVER stick. The moment I close the app all the favorites I chose go away and I have to do them over again. It’s annoying to have to type in my stations every single time. Especially when I’m using the exact same station everyday. This needs to be fixed along with the glitchy-ness. The app does this kind of lag or glitch whenever I go to type in a station.
Functional but only sometimes
I use this a lot but oftentimes it will say a train is "on time" or "left the station" when in fact it's running late. Right now, the 9:05 train is late. The app has it as "left the station" while here at the station we can see how late it is. Yes, I am at the station already but it would be useful if the app actually reported what you see on the station boards.
Helpful, but status times need some work
Moderately useful - provides the train schedule and updates on major disruptions. Would be extremely useful if the train status times were ever accurate...
Took 5 years to get retina display resolution
..that's about what I expect from the MTA. I'm giving this app 5 stars just to encourage you guys updating more often. Like maybe twice a year instead of once a year. A man paying hundreds of dollars a month for train tickets can dream....
Glitchy, Unreliable, Frustrating
I hate this app. I really need it to work. Please fix it. Here’s what I hate: - It doesn’t remember favorite stations. I only travel between two stations and I “favorite” ☆ them each time. The app never remembers and I have to search for the stations over and over again!!! - It doesn’t show accurate real time alerts. 90% of the time the train times are off. You’re better off just going to the station and hoping a train will arrive soon.
Just like the LIRR, this app is useless
This app is reflective of the nonsense and waste that is the LIRR. It is very glitchy and will click stations by itself, refresh itself and you lose all the information you inputted. It closes itself and doesn't even show you previous trains just to check when your train is arriving. Often it doesn't show the right track and you have to check at the actual station to make sure. Can't the MTA do anything right?
Although the app can be used as a useful resource for general scheduling it is unreliable for cancellations, delays and other important updates. The incompetence is unacceptable, especially for those relying on such app when commuting to work on daily basis. The developers of the app should work on improving the logistics OR notify their customers of their blatant short comings. Although the app is free it should not come at the cost of the customer. If anyone was contemplating using this app I would use extreme caution!
New comer to LIRR
So basically read all the reviews from all the other app users I just hope that all these complaints were answered I use LIRR from time to time so I barely have complaints cause I drive everywhere but answer your customers man! Lol that is all
