New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority finally joined the smartphone era today by releasing an iOS app showing train arrival times for seven subway lines.

Details of iOS apps

Available for the iPhone, the iPod Touch, and the iPad, MTA Subway Time will display train arrival times for 156 stations on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 lines and the S shuttle line. Though officially in a test version for the time being, the app will use the same arrival times shown on station countdown clocks and on the MTA’s Web site.

“The ability to get subway arrival time at street level is here,” said MTA Chairman and CEO Joseph J. Lhota in a statement. “The days of rushing to a subway station only to find yourself waiting motionless in a state of uncertainty are coming to an end.”

According to the statement, the app can handle up to 5,000 incoming requests per second. The information comes from a feed that can be accessed by developers for other mobile operating systems.

Though the MTA has existing apps for bus arrivals and the drive times on its bridges and tunnels, this is the first time that the country’s busiest transit agency has developed an app for subway service.
