Book trips online with MY AAR

Updated Mar 25, 2024

Booking an Access-A-Ride trip has never been easier with the new and improved MY AAR webpage and app.

Our AAR agents remain available to book trips every day from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., but MY AAR is the fastest and most convenient way to book a trip or create a subscription. The app lets you easily access your personal account information, such as upcoming and past rides. 

Existing AAR customers can visit our MY AAR website or download the MTA app and create a MY AAR account. Then, log into your account and start booking trips!

Updated MTA app

A new version of the MTA app has been released, with a new name (MTA) and app icon. This version of the app includes many improvements, including a map-based interface, real-time bus tracking, and easy-to-find information on elevator and escalator outages.

Depending on your app update settings, you may receive the new version automatically (it will replace MYmta), or you can otherwise install the update at your convenience.

The new app also includes the MY AAR booking system, and remains the best place to book, modify, and track your AAR trip. 

If you use the MYmta app now to book your trips, you will need to sign in to your AAR account again in the new version. The sign-in page is located in a different place than it was before. Here’s how to sign in:

  • Open the app, and tap on the “More” tab at the bottom right of the home screen.
  • Tap the “Sign in to AAR Account” option in the middle of the screen.
  • From there, you will be taken to the login screen for your MY AAR account.

Once you have signed in, the app will add an AAR button to the bottom menu. Tap on that for the exact same MY AAR services you have been using.

If you experience issues while using the app, please call AAR at 877-337-2017 and listen carefully to the directory choices to find the one best addresses your needs. Our AAR reservationists are available to book your trips everyday form 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Improvements in the new MY AAR


It's easier to manage your account.

You can now easily request a new link to sign up for MY AAR, request a hint if you forget your email, easily change your password, as well as update your personal details including mailing address, email address, and preferences including text notifications and access to view vehicle requirements.



It's easier to find information about your trip.

AAR alerts are displayed more clearly in a banner on the top of your screen and there are messages regarding vehicle availability, such as assignment. Additionally, language has been updated to make selections more intuitive, and you can see estimated pick-up and drop-off times for your trip. Other information including viewing recent trips and accessing trip ID have been made easier to find under trip details.


It's easier to navigate. 

The MY AAR website is more compatible with the screen readers VoiceOver (on iOS) and NVDA (for Windows) in Chrome browsers. On the MY AAR website, a new home button will help you navigate back to the MY AAR homepage.
