ProximiT: MBTA Bus and Subway App

ProximiT is a real time personal assistant for all your bus and subway needs in and around Boston. Ever arrived at the station right as the bus or train pulled away? You could have walked faster but now you’re stuck waiting. How about spending an eternity in a crowded underground station when you could have been enjoying the outdoors? Download ProximiT and never waste your time or money again. • Get arrival times for your favorite stations as you approach them, without opening the app. • See down to the second predictions, so you’ll know when to rush or take your time and get a cup of coffee. • Locate nearby stations in a new part of town. Stations are sorted by distance and show upcoming arrival times, so you can decide which is your best bet. • Find out about service alerts such as delays, construction, and elevator outages. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. ProximiT is not affiliated with the MBTA.

ProximiT: MBTA Bus and Subway app reviews

  • Pru stop 1/5

    By Rtrombones15
    Green line pru stop is always wrong. Not even close. Please fix.
  • My first review ever 5/5

    By polliflauta
    Just to tell you folks that you’re doing great and deserve a peace prize. Keep doing your thing.
  • Best app for the T 5/5

    By Jacob8608
    Easily the best app for the T. I think most of the issues I have are much more a result of the busses being delayed or caught at a light, rather than inaccuracy on the part of the app. An updated UI would be nice. But it definitely gets the job done.
  • Nearly flawless 5/5

    By Ze0n Syk3s
    The only thing this app would need in order to go above and beyond itself in terms of excellence, would be to add commuter rail time tables.
  • Great app 5/5

    By 96eh96
    This app makes it super easy to check train and bus times. It’s always as accurate as it can be since it pulls directly from the MBTA schedule/times
  • Inconsistent like the T 2/5

    By Mbb12
    The accuracy is inconsistent and doesn’t allow for favorites to be set
  • Pretty good but can use improvement 5/5

    By xxxxxxoxxxxxoxx
    Sometimes the accuracy is not always on point.
  • Frustrated 2/5

    By ihatemycommute789355
    Inconsistent and unusually reliable. Buses will just “disappear” from tracker without arriving.
  • Never really accurate 2/5

    By Mizza-me
    This app and The T in general is never accurate enough. It’s made me LATE too many times. This needs to be fixed!!!
  • Works great for the red line 5/5

    By MedicallyOriented
    This app gave me back 20 minutes of my life today by letting me know when I needed to walk just a bit faster to avoid a long delay. The least I could do was to write a nice review.
  • Catch the bus, Gus 5/5

    By BHL57
    Handy dandy app, shows you arrival times for busses near your location.
  • It's better than whatever else is out there 2/5

    By Bobby K P
    This app frequently misses trains and buses. It's more directional than anything. It tells me transport is about to arrive or boarding when it's already leaving. It misses complete trains and buses. It's somewhat reliable for updating and giving reads of depart/arrival times.
  • I love it 5/5

    By Byronkats
    I love that it has both bus and subway schedules. I think that it needs to improve in situations when the bus or subway is late. Usually it’s hard to know if a late train will show up at all
  • ETA is never correct. 1/5

    By sorrysap23
    App does a terrible job of tracking busses.
  • Once great, now just fine 4/5

    By aswerdswidbtydbegdndgb
    Happy to have this. Was the perfect app for the last year or so. But arrival times seem to be a minute or two off lately. The less precise it is, the less useful it is.
  • Simple and precise! 5/5

    By samojosjednom
    I would like to thank this app for being simple and precise!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Drunkpotato
    I use it almost every day. Great app, very timely! Only thing I wish is that it had better map tracking, but I mostly use the list of times of my starred bus lines anyway.
  • Ok 3/5

    By Agbtxyz
    Good for if you go to the same stops all the time. It’s about 65% accurate- I’ve spent a lot of time watching it claim a bus arrived, boarded, and left, while I was standing at the bus stop with no bus in sight. Not so easily to find buses and stops on the fly.
  • ProximiT 3/5

    By rediculous14
    It is unclear, and there appears to be no way to inquire, whether the listed bus arrival times are real time predictions or merely state what the bus schedule says. Also when a service alert says there is for instance a 20 minute delay, does the listed arrival time reflect that delay, or must we Add that 20 minutes to the listed time. Thank you.
  • Where’s the bus? 5/5

    By Mollsta
    Wish I could see where the bus was in real time!
  • Not accurate 3/5

    By Quick trips
    App is not accurate
  • Observation 2/5

    By Elimar Coelho
    The Onibus never goes on the app schedule, and this and a big problem for people who depend on public transportation.
  • So happy 5/5

    By nikitanoums
    Good application
  • Transit app love it 4/5

    By Dimond J
    So glad that I chose this app for the transit it’s an accurate in on time when I’m waiting for the MBTA Bus it is the best app I’ve tried love it
  • Great at what it does 5/5

    By forgetineer
    ProximiT is one of my favorite public transit apps. It only does one thing (well, two if you count the delay notifications) and does it really really well. The countdown display to board keeps saving me from missing the train by a few seconds!
  • Simply...Best MBTA app on any platform! 5/5

    By bamboo3
    Simply...Best MBTA app on any platform!
  • Trash 2/5

    By slimmmn
    This app worked really good for me until today. It doesn’t even load the times of the buses and trains.
  • Help 2/5

    By J881
    What happened? Worked fine this morning (3/5/19) but at noon it stopped. Same with my friends app. Did the T take away their info? That happened to me with Catch the Bus last year and while ProximiT can sometimes be off esp early morning arrival times, it has been pretty dependable. I hope this is just a temp glitch.
  • The best bus app EVER!!! 5/5

    By AWalkinTypo
    Honestly Ive been an droid user my whole life And I just got an iPhone so It was so confusing on how to track the bus, but this app has helped me out so much and I use it everyday 👍🏽👍🏽😁
  • Not for New Englanders 1/5

    By Zumbfamu
    If you will be in the cold, I wouldn’t trust this app. The time jumps from 30 minutes to 5 to 15 frequently within the same minute causing you to either miss your bus or be stuck in the freezing cold for 15 minutes. This would normally be no biggie for some but in New England this weather is ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and get a different app.
  • Great 5/5

    By Mbondo
    Very reliable and accurate
  • New Feature request. adding a widget. 5/5

    By iPhonedgrtyg
    I love this app it’s almost perfect. Helps with my everyday commute. But would make it perfect is adding a widget. That way one swipe to right and you would be able to see you commute information at a glance.
  • Timely 3/5

    By Dickie dell
    Timely
  • Great, but no maps 4/5

    By LoveThatC7H8N4O2
    This would be 5-star if they supported maps (even static ones, just to check if this is the right line/stop/direction). Also would be great to offer an Apple Watch app/complication. Occasionally a bus will "arrive" but then go out of service, or the arrival time will pass with no bus there.
  • GPS much? 1/5

    By JasonRV
    As best I can tell, for buses, this is a random number generator that then counts down from the randomly generated numbers.
  • Everything I needed 5/5

    By Roger the Racoon
    I never write reviews but this app is a game changer. Before this app I would always miss the T by a few minutes or sometimes seconds. Now I always catch my train and make it to my morning meetings! 11/10
  • Do They Even Know The Time 1/5

    By The Brain Trust
    I get the impression that this app is just making guesses. The maps are complicated to read. It is difficult to get the app to switch services or bus numbers.
  • Watch Version Please 3/5

    By brider617
    Please make an Apple Watch version! Sometimes the approximate times change drastically with no explanation (I.e.) 10 min away becomes 2 min away.
  • Not my favorite 2/5

    By Unicorn TN
    This app works well for me. However the latest update is whack! My favorites kept switching it’s order. I don’t know why and it isn’t changing it’s order due to my current location, if so that would of been better. Please either make the favorites change it’s order only if it’s base on my current location, otherwise, please it the the order I placed it.
  • Below standard 1/5

    By Unes_here
    Needs major updates. For accuracy and speed.
  • Best app for the MBTA 5/5

    By seanhussey
    Fantastic app! It lets me set up my favorite bus lines and show them as a list sorted by geographically closest to me at the time. And this is the first screen when you launch the app, which I need to stress the importance of. When I need to know when a bus is coming, I don’t want to fiddle with different buttons and screens. The info is right where I need it when I need it.
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By Guenther GTD
    Lately the estimates times are just plain wrong and i missed a bus earlier this week. This mirning the app reported that the bus 459 is 22 minutes away. Then at the hus stop the estimate kept hovering between 22 and 23 minutes. The bus arrived at the stop and the app still reported 22 minutes as i boarded... Could be an issue with MBTA, not clear
  • Used to be reliable 2/5

    By kdlllllllll
    This app used to be very reliable. Recently, going west on green line towards Cleveland circle, all the stops are displaying the same exact time when the T is arriving. Very off. Hope this is fixed soon
  • Mostly reliable 3/5

    By madlab97
    I’ve never used this for the bus, but it’s pretty reliable for the green line. Only thing is it’s not reliable at all for the weekend schedule. Currently sitting outside in the rain on a Sunday waiting for the train they said would come 10 mins ago. 😡
  • Very approximate 4/5

    By Geewiz23
    Great app really approximate on timing of trains. Been using a few weeks. Realistic timing of train arrival times
  • Accurate 4/5

    By hitoallfreecellers
    Helps me catch the bus; I do wish the app would stay active on my screen so I could just check arrival time as I walk to the bus, rather than have to keep unlocking my phone.
  • Not accurate 3/5

    By ThisIsDebM
    Missed my bus a couple times this week. App is getting deleted...
  • Flawed 1/5

    By MumblesFumbles
    Seriously flaws in this app. It assumes if you’re heading east on green line that the train is going to lechmere. However many trains terminate at park and government center. Therefore it shows no upcoming train service. Really wanted to like the app but this is a fatal flaw.
  • Great...when it’s on top of things 3/5

    By Kayluuuuuuuuuuuh
    During busy times or when there’s delays it’s not too great with predictions. But for the most part this has been a fantastic replacement for NextBus. It will absolutely drain your battery tho if you keep it open. At least it does for me 🤷‍♀️
