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

New Green line! Great app! Now it even does the Green line... well, somewhat (no predictions, just locations of above ground trains). Only as reliable and as helpful as the MBTA, but there's nothing that can be done about that.

Best bus app

Solid bus map app Does a reasonable job of showing when buses are arriving at various stops. The UI is a bit on the outdated side, but it's a useful tool, and ad-free. Had a recent issue with crashing, but it was resolved quickly by the dev.

Awesome again. Dev fixed the crash issue really fast. It's the best MBTA app once again.

Just works No frills: just does what it's supposed to. Lets me predict bus and subway arrival to the minute so I'm never waiting, and makes it straightforward to organize the stops I use most often.
