2016 ENDORSED APP WINNER: TRANSIT APP
Transit App was chosen unanimously by the selection board as the most useful app for MBTA users. The app’s aesthetics and simplicity serve as the backbone to many intuitive, useful features riders can take advantage of for any transit trip. Nearby departure times, push notifications for alerts, and step-by-step directions make it incredibly user-friendly. Customize your settings and only get notifications that you want, including when to leave your house to catch your train and announcements that warn you when you’re approaching your intended bus stop.
The Transit App team is constantly making improvements to the service based on customer feedback, and working in tandem with them will benefit our riders tremendously. Make sure to download Transit App to try it out yourself and keep an eye out for app improvements and updates to come.
