Free Grand Central Terminal App Merges MTA Service Details with Information on Retail Merchants

You now have the world’s largest train terminal at your fingertips, with the most up-to-date commuter rail schedule available on mobile devices, as MTA and Metro-North Railroad have launched the official app for Grand Central Terminal. Originally opened in 1913, the iconic train terminal is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year.

Available in both Android and iPhone marketplaces at no cost, the Grand Central app is the only one that seamlessly integrates real-time Metro-North train status and track updates, along with the definitive guide to Grand Central’s retail, dining and event locations.

“There is so much to learn about and explore within the walls of Grand Central Terminal,” said Howard Permut, President of MTA Metro-North Railroad. “Now, the more than 750,000 daily visitors will be able to get personalized news and updates about Metro-North trains and Grand Central’s stores, restaurants, and events, all in one place on their mobile device.”

In addition, the app will allow users to see the schedule and track assignment for their station/line and add commuter rail lines as “favorites” for easy access to real-time trip information; access exclusive offers from Grand Central Terminal retail shops, including Grand Central Market; explore the retail map and find places to eat, shop, have a cocktail, grab a snack, run an errand, and more; receive complete information on the latest Terminal events; and learn about 100 years of Terminal history using the interactive timeline.
