Edit: No longer reliable Edit: The accuracy of this app has significantly diminished and is no longer reliable. I've noticed a trend of "phantom buses" where the app will say that there is a bus coming in 5 minutes, then 4 minutes later it jumps up to 10 minutes or more. It's a shame since this app used to be a go-to for daily trip planning.

Does everything right Finally, an MBTA app with all the features I need. Has timer/alert notifications and a robust bookmarking system that actually works. You can rename bookmarks, and color-code them, so choosing a bus to get to work, or to get home, is easier at a glance than with any other app.

Killer feature: times on bookmark screen Lots of next-bus apps let you set bookmarks, but this is the only app I've found that actually displays arrival times on the bookmark screen itself. All the other apps make you click through to each individual stop to see arrival times. Since I live close to several different bus lines that stop in different places but all get me where I want to go, it's a *huge* time-saver to have the estimated times for all of them appear automatically when I start this app, because I can tell immediately which stop I need to go to. Other reviews complain that the predicted times aren't always accurate, which is true but misleading. This app, just like all the others, gets the data from the T's data feed, so there's very little any app author can do about its accuracy.

Useful The routes are accurate 95% of the time, but there are times/days when it off by several minutes. I also noticed that the Free version automatically highlights the stop you're closest to based on the route you select... but the Pro version doesn't seem to offer this same function.

I live by this app! I don't have a car and I take several transfers...bus to bus to train.... and knowing where my bus is, is very helpful.
