This is a very simple app that displays an image of the MBTA's T subway network in Boston, and, with internet, gives estimates of when the next train will arrive. It's fast, it's clear, and it's easy to use.
Upgraded to the new, faster MBTA API.
The old version of the API is getting shutdown soon, so please upgrade quickly so you don't have any problems with it!
Ratings and Reviews
Easy to use! But...
This app is very easy to use, its navigation is simplistic, and it is very accurate, although not perfectly. It does need an update, however, on the map. It still claims that Government Center is closed for renovations, but it reopened in 2016. Plus, the schedules aren’t consistently updated. For example, it could say the next inbound red line train to Ashmont is 6 minutes away, then you could leave for a few days and it would say the same thing. The only way it’s updated is if you go back to the schedule choosing page and then forward again. However, besides these issues, it is quite a useful tool if you are in the Boston area. Trust me, driving in downtown Boston is not fun, so you’ll definitely want to take the T, and this app will help you out.
Good but needs improvement
I saw another review which I would like to echo as part of my review. This app definitely needs a gps function, it could be a version that doesn't have to work with cell connection. Another option is to have a map overlay so you can see where the exits are and what part of the city you are going to enter and exit, a feature that would save time. I would say this is a good beginner app and needs the next version to take it to the next level. The timeline for the trains wasn't really helpful because the trains come within 10 minutes of each other.
Clear & Concise
Any app always has places where it could improve but for a clear easy to use map this is the best. The only improvement I would say is that it could add a GPS function to show what you're closest station is to your position is. This could then alert you to how your progress is or the closest station is to your position.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
