Soon your phone can be a train ticket. Governor Cuomo announced Tuesday the roll out of a free app that will enable Metro North customers buy train tickets on their mobile devices.
MTA eTix will be available to all Metro-North (and LIRR) customers by the end of the summer. As of today, New Haven line routes had not been added.

“Our administration remains committed to building a transit network that is responsive to the needs of travelers who rely on mass transportation, and the launch of the MTA eTix app is a major step forward in our efforts,” Governor Cuomo said. “This new app puts riders first by eliminating the ticket line and helping New Yorkers and visitors get where they need to go with more freedom and convenience than ever before. ”
