Developer's Description

*** We are currently only accepting users from all 5 boroughs of New York City. ***

You will never have to wait for another bus or train again.

Third Rail tells you when to leave exactly where you are to get to the nearest bus or train stop right when as it's arriving, no waiting required.

Third Rail also automatically only shows you the trains or buses near you, tells you exactly where the next bus or train you want is, automatically alerts you of any delays on your subway or bus line, provides directions to help you get to the nearest bus or train stop should you have any trouble, and can send you a notification when it's time to leave to remind you.

All with only two taps of a button.

Note: The MTA only provides real-time data for the 1,2,3,4,5,6, and L trains, as well as all buses. For all other trains, we use their most up-to-date schedules to find out about when they should be arriving.

*This app uses your location while in the background to provide you with the most accurate data possible. Note, however, that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life."
