Make sure to check out our new sister app NextTrain T Tracker; it shows real-time display boards of real arrival times for the T.


Boston riders have already put MBTA Tracker into the Top 10 Navigation apps...

Now available - make sure to check it out: NextTrain T Tracker, an app which makes real-time T arrival times available for the Red, Orange and Blue lines

For iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 users, included is FREE Augmented Reality Feature which helps find nearest stops!

MBTA Tracker tells MBTA riders how many minutes are left until the next bus comes. MBTA Tracker works with all bus stations and for all route directions in the MBTA system.

Stop names can be sorted alphabetically or according to distance from the user's location. Alphabetical sorted stops have a tappable index for quick access and search functionality.

Additional features include walking directions to any selected bus stop and storage of favorite stops. Stops can also be found through their respective route. Routes can be sorted alphabetically or by route number.

With this application, you will never be in a rush when not necessary. You can savor your last minutes drinking a coffee knowing that it isn't until 7 more minutes that the bus will come. Never wait for buses again. Just two iPhone screen touches will put all the information you need in front of you immediately.

Other very nice features:

-Google map showing user's location as well as nearest bus stops. Bus stops can be tapped in order to display arrival times for all buses going through the stop.

-Google map showing user's location as well as the location and travel direction of buses corresponding to the current selected route.

What's New in Version 1.1

Fixed bug where arrivals for stations selected from the big station list showed ordered by route. Now arrivals are all ordered as a group from closest to longest waiting time. Some users where seeing that routes they were interested in weren't showing. Now you should be OK!

3/5 stars

very poor software-updated now

I have been dissappointed with this app so far. It doesn't locate where I am (it still thinks that I am at the location where I used the app. first time). And when I choose my Bus Stop from its list (at which 4 different buses stop as I know) it only lists two of those 4 buses. I checked several other Bus Stops and again it does the same. Pocket MBTA is a much more sophisticated application. I am hoping that Mr. Eisinman will improve his software with an update, otherwise I will have to stick with my 1 star.

Update: my problems were partly resolved by a software update.

4/5 stars

Good app

The update fixed my major complaint: only one of two busses that served a stop near my house showed up in the app. Now works. Docked half a star for the less than intuitive interface. You really have to rely on the "favorites" feature to make this app functional. Docked another half star for the gimped map feature. Only shows stops near the location where you first accesses the map; doesn't update as you move. Killing the app and restarting acts as a workaround, but that's a pain. Also, would like to see a feature where you could see all stops around another location on the map. This would help when planning a return trip. Thanks for the update!

2/5 stars

Are you even trying?

It worked great the first time, it was EXTREMELY accurate, but I hated the graphics and chalkboard layout (extremely minor complaint). What concerned me much more is the fact that the app only worked ONE TIME. LITERALLY. I tried killing and restarting the app, soft resetting the phone, everything. It never worked again past the "Locating You" screen. What a disappointment. I got Pocket MBTA instead.
