To use the MTA NYC Transit trip planner, indicate where you are leaving from in the From box, and where you're traveling to in the To box. Select either the time you're leaving by, or the anticipated time of arrival. The planner generates the different traveling options available.
You can customize your options after you have selected the To, From, and Traveling Time options. You have the ability to select whether or not the trip is for someone who is handicapped or minimize how many transfers you may want to make. You are also able to indicate how far you're willing to walk to and from the transit station. You can also choose your route preference: whether or not you wish to ride by bus or train.
