Via web, Subway Time available on all mobile platforms

A screenshot of the On-The-Go version of Subway Time.

Subway Time, the MTA’s subway tracking app that uses data from the system’s countdown clocks to provide real-time train location, is now available on all mobile platforms via the agency’s On The Go website. Prior to today, the app had been available only on the iOS and Android platforms, but the web-based tool — which features a better scroll than the iPhone app — can now be accessed by anyone with a smartphone and a data connection.

“It all comes down to our mantra – Know Before You Go,” Paul J. Fleuranges, the MTA’s Senior Director of Corporate and Internal Communications, said of Subway Time’s latest implementation. “When you have access to real-time information on the go, it makes your trip that much easier, and it gives you the power to work around any problems that might arise.”

To access the interface, mosey on over to http://onthego.mta.info/ and scroll down to the fifth link. The rest is self-explanatory.

Just dropping in to say that the Subway Time for Android is great. The interface is far more useful and pleasant to look at than the MTA’s iOS app.

Does this include Ubuntu? I just got a Ubuntu Galaxy Nexus.

There are Ubuntu phones now? Very cool.

I messed up big-time.

It’s a Nexus 7, not a Galaxy Nexus, which has Ubuntu. And it’s a tablet.

But still, is there anything for Ubuntu Nexus tablets?

One thing that the iPhone and mobile app lack is auto refresh. would be nice if those were added.

iTrans NYC now has this data, too. Very well-integrated into the app, too.
