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.

Best app ever…

My wife and I Love this app! It provides the most accurate and up-to-date information in a format that easy to read and understand. We have other apps, but this is our primary! Keep up the good work!

App is not intuitive at all

Stop taking trains off the board that are not even close to Boston.

Poorly designed

Difficult to find correct trains or next train

Parade ridership

This is absolutely unacceptable. Where are the extra train that were promised? And why the express train had to make all local stops when the train is filled to capacity and there is not even a standing room. In the morning people who were going to work were left on the platforms. I don’t think MBTA/Keolis can handle anything

Excellent App!

This is by far the best app for commuter rail riders. It’s accurate and I like how passengers can talk to one another.

Waste of $0.99

The app doesn’t work for the Needham line.

Go-to app for MBTA commuter rail

The best app for CR. Superior to the official Keolis app. Easy to use and nicely designed.

Boarding info not showing

Issue has since been fixed - 5 stars because I love this app! For the last couple of days the “boarding on track” info hasn’t been showing. Is this an app glitch or an MBTA issue? If it’s app-related, can you fix it? This app is my lifeline!

Best MBTA commuter rail app available. Only thing I can nitpick is the lack of information after 12am.

Can be much much better

This whole Mbta system is running on life support. There is always some issue
