Getting around New York is not that difficult even if you don’t have a car. The city’s transportation system covers many areas in the city. If you are new to the city, you may have to spend a bit of time getting used to the routes and ride options available for your area. These 7 iPhone apps help you get a better handle on New York’s subway system:
MTA Subway Time: provides you with real-time train arrival information for select routes of the NY City subway system. It could be even better with more data.
