Description

MBTA Rail provides experienced Boston commuters with as much information as possible about the location and status of their trains. This app is designed for seasoned commuters who are already familiar with their line schedule. Features include: • Near real-time location information (next stop, current stop, GPS location, predicted arrival time, and vehicle speed) • Boarding track numbers • See your train on a map along with other trains along your route • View historical coach numbers, boarding tracks, and average on time percentages • Crowd-sourced information. Is a prediction wrong? Train delayed mid-trip? Wondering if your train is standing room only? Discuss through the "Reports" button next to each trip • Full schedule view with predicted arrival times for each stop • Service alerts (delays, cancellations, track changes, etc.) • Clean, user-friendly, and ad-free interface Note: data is sourced directly from the MBTA's real-time feeds which is collected using PTIS equipment installed on the trains. We don't make any predictions ourselves; this app is simply an interface for the MBTA's data. This app is as accurate as the MBTA's data allows us to be. We are NOT affiliated with the MBTA, Keolis, or MassDOT. Follow us on Twitter at @MBTARailTracker for updates.

Great App

I wish the MBTA worked half as well as this app

What a champ

Whoever (or whatever team) went ahead to make this, put a huge amount of upfront effort in to make people’s everyday lives better. It seems like a small thing but spread over thousands of commuters that check this app a couple times per work day, it makes a such a massive impact. Little things like knowing what the train layout is or when you need to leave your house make the everyday commute so much better Virtual fist bump to that team Shout out to all those people who post to the community every day with train layouts and updates🙌 Feedback: Allow to sort by departure time from chosen destination please

Not that useful

Can’t filter by direction. Doesn’t have track information. Just a big complaint gathering app.

Great app that helps you get to the correct track way before the track is announced. Highly recommend it.

Trust this app over anything the MBTA tells you- a must-have for any commuter who uses the CR.

Great app!

Gives you good intel on which platform your train is on or will be on. Also gives accurate info on how its running before the MBTA email gets to you.

Not user specific app

So many improvements require. It should filter trains which are not relevant from dashboard . This is close to free app. I still prefer mbta official app.
