App Description

“Where’s my MBTA Bus?” is an app for Massachusetts transit riders who want to know exactly where their bus is and when it will arrive. It can help riders decide if they need to rush or can restfully finish their morning coffee. Features: - Universal app; supports iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch - Real-time arrival predictions for ALL MBTA bus stops - Real-time bus locations for ALL MBTA routes - View official MBTA Alerts - Guided navigation to help riders find their stops - View entire route path with all stops on the map - Save stops as Favorites to ensure quick access at any time - Quick access to predictions for the last viewed stop - Automatic refreshing of predictions and bus locations This app relies on MBTA partnership with NextBus inc, to provide real-time bus arrival predictions. Data is provided by NextBus using MBTA raw data. Using their special formula, NextBus is able to provide not only bus locations, but arrival predictions for every single bus stop. The app provides a pre-filled template to report problems, letting riders send feedback and improve the accuracy of predictions. This App requires an Internet connection (3G, 4G, LTE or WiFi) to get access to real-time data.

    I’ve gone through a load of these apps and most don’t work so I thought I’d drop the .99$ and it’s been nothing but amazing. Best app for the money, forget the other options. Half of them made me late to class
  • Needs an update

    With buses now running on a new fall schedule, it's obvious the app is not using GPS. Missed my bus twice using the app. Now I'm just going on the MBTA site which defeats the purpose of paying for this app. Update it please !

    This app is great - helps me plan when I need to leave my house to catch the bus. It's been really accurate in the year I've been using it.
  • NEED TO UPDATE APP

    I love this app. I've tried others but yours is the best. But with recent iPhone update I can no longer touch the screen in map to select a stop. Please don't stop the good work!
  • Finally updated to iOS 10!

    Great app that I rely on everyday. But it wasn't updated for several years until now. Simple and works great. The only problem is that the favorites sometimes gets corrupted and give errors. Removing them and redo the favorite stop usually works.
  • My go-to

    I like this app, but I didn't realize how useful it was until I found out that the Transit app predictions are based on the schedule and not on real-time GPS information. Transit tells me what bus routes are near my location, but this app shows me where the actual bus is. I'm glad it's been updated!
  • Something's wrong with the 69 line predictions

    The map location of the bus and the prediction time are wildly different, and neither seem to be correct. Love this app, please fix!
  • Sadness for week

    This has been the leader & best app by far. This whole week though the GPS data has been missing for express buses West of Boston. This is key because my route goes around a square & the ETA can be wrong by 5 minutes until it completes the loop. Unless this is fixed, all the stress and anxiety of bus "catching" will return. :-(
  • Not working without update

    Will frequently fail to load on iOS 10 with iPhone 6s. Spinning pinwheel with dimmed screen. Closing app / reopening doesn't help. Uninstalling / reinstalling doesn't help. Shutting down iPhone and turning back on doesn't help. Update your app code.
  • Saves me so much time!!

    I seldom write reviews, much less rave reviews, but... this app is terrific - I recommend to all my commuting friends. Thank you, app developer - nice job!
