Please note the app requires data access and works best with GPS on.
(Supported Transit Authorities: NYC MTA, WMATA, MBTA, CTA, SF BART, LAMTA, SEPTA, NJ Transit and PATH)
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. This app leverages an Apple service called the "significant location change service", which runs in the background and collects data only when your device has traveled a certain distance. In standard usage, this results in a tiny processing impact to your device. The benefit to you, as a rider, is assisting your transit agency so it can more intelligently position routes and stops as well as dispatch vehicles with optimal frequency.
Performance improvement and bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
I've been saved way too many times by the alerts, especially for my early morning meetings. I love not having to finagle with my phone all the time to use this app. The alerts show up on my home screen and there's no work required on my end. The alerts are so helpful!
Best in class
There's room for improvement, but it's the best I found for Boston MBTA transit. I love ProximiT for its design and notifications as you walk to a T stop, but it doesn't do commuter rail. Dash does commuter rail and real time updates, though I've not tested it long enough to verify, I'm just told it does. Overall does what it needs to do.
Very useful, has potential
My only recommendation is to make it so I can get directions using all travel mediums. So for instance I can go from lex to bethpage by taking the E train and then the LIRR.
