BostonBusMap


This app shows locations and predicts bus times in Boston and nearby cities, using GPS info from the MBTA.

Please email [email protected] if you have any problem, and please report a crash if you see one! Twitter feed for bug updates: @bostonbusmap

Basic usage:
- choose a mode by clicking the button on the upper right corner. You can see all vehicles at once, vehicles for a single route, bus predictions for a single route, or only bus predictions on favorited stops
- choose a route by clicking the menu button and clicking "Routes". You can also type in the route in the search textbox
- click on a stop to show the next few buses that are driving by.
- click 'more info' to show more predictions for that stop
- click 'report problem' to report a problem with the predictions
- click the star in the popup (see screenshot) to mark a stop as a favorite
- choose a favorite stop by pressing the menu button and clicking "Favorite stops"
- center on your current location by clicking the menu button and choosing "My Location". The speed and accuracy of location information depends on your phone location settings. You can tweak those in Home -> Settings -> Location & Security
- draw the path along a route by clicking the menu button, going to Settings and selecting "Show route path"
- this app should work for all touchscreen devices that are Android 1.5 and up (which means pretty much all Android phones and tablets). Please let me know if something doesn't work

User reviews of BostonBusMap
Works very well, just as described. Lots of useful information, especially for a Free App. Something that I just noticed about this App. It ALSO tracks the red, orange, blue, and Silver Lines. Which makes it infinately more useful than the other app for JUST trains. This gives you their position in real time. EXCELLENT APP. A MUST for any Android User in Boston.

Used to be good When I first installed it this app was a lifesaver. Now there are no predictions and it is useless. I'm uninstalling and finding one that does what it is supposed to do. Also customer support sucks.

Great App Very consistent with times and predictions. App receives constant updates. Best of all...its FREE!

It's helpful when it works. There's a lag in the GPS reporting that amounts to several blocks. If you think that the bus is close, it probably just past.
