Never accurate 1/5
All these good reviews must be for the T? I don’t think it’s been right one single time for the #9 bus
Tends to be closer to accurate than others 4/5
I stuck with this one because it seems to be the most accurate as compared to others. Wish I had the opportunity to note every time a bus didn’t show that was listed as “Boarding” though... how would that affect the actual times in the app? Just a thought!
Most of the time this app won’t function, but when it does, it’s great! 2/5
No bus data 3/5
I got this to see the bus schedules and neither of the busses I take ever have times associated with them. So far not very helpful
It only stops working when it really matters. 1/5
It seems like the performance of this app is weather dependent. If it is freezing cold or raining and you really need to know when the next bus or train is coming, those of the times it does not work other times it works fine.
Was going to give 5 stars, but... 3/5
I love this app! It’s super simple and accurate enough for me. However, recently the information about all bus times has stopped loading, so it’s rapidly becoming useless.
11 bus 1/5
By $ Slick Steve ;) $
The 11 bus drove right by me at Chauncey street. At about 11:45am
Great app! It has never let me down. It gives a good and precise estimate time of arrival of busses, better then any other app I’ve used.
The services should be up date and also, the purple line service be included.
By Gus from Locust Gap
Confusing and inaccurate
Where is the bus...? 1/5
Great question I posed, and lately, ProximiT does NOT know the answer, and no way to provide real feedback or alert them. Just does NOT show any bus times at all.
Red Line 3/5
By felicia ann
Works in town very efficiently. But the schedule from Braintree seems to never work and is never accurate.
This app is a must-have if you live in Boston. It has saved my butt on multiple occasions trying to figure out my commute. The warning system is super prompt and it’s more accurate than google maps in terms of timing. It makes the bus system easy to navigate. The BUS SYSTEM. tldr if you live in Boston, you need this app. Will save you so much headache with the MBTA
Times lagging 3/5
Not up to date with red line times at all - says 9 mins and shows up in 3-4 mins
Wouldn’t Recommend 1/5
This app only lets you add busses when it feels like it. Have it a couple of days, but kept experiencing the same issue.
Rarely correct 1/5
Someone recommended this to me but it’s been off close to 100% of time. For ex just now app said bus was coming in 7 mins & it showed up while I was typing; I missed my earlier bus bc of same problem.
By It's me I run sometimes
Particularly good in boston
Precise and close on time 5/5
By nona dis nona dat
I am very happy with the service ProximiT has proved. It is direct information reliable most of the time.
Needs improvement 1/5
Get better on timing your trains
So confusing and inefficient! 1/5
This app is not good! It is laid out terribly making it really confusing and inefficient to use. It doesn’t allow you to just type in where you want to go and give you train directions- it kept taking me off the app and giving me walking directions there. I don’t understand the point of this app. It doesn’t calculate your route for you which is super annoying. If it does and I just don’t know how to do it then that says something in itself because the app should not be this complicated.
Timings are made up when it rains 1/5
When it rains this is absolutely useless and basically makes you late for work. This is constant. Get it together!
Ryans big day 5/5
Today, we took my son Ryan to the bus city of Boston, to ride the one and only MBTA. He doesn’t leave our house much because he is afraid of the outside, but he felt right at home in the cushioned and plush seats of the Green line. We rode every part of the line - the B line! The C line! The D line! And even the E line! This has transformed Ryan into the man he is today!
Actually good! 5/5
I’ve tried various MBTA bus trackers over the years. I’ve abandoned each, mostly because they’re slow and/or cumbersome. This one is quite good, though. I commend the design. Had it customized to my points of interest in seconds, and the user experience is simple and transparent.
Need to update the detours 3/5
With all the construction going on the busses are detoured making the app practically useless. Please update!
Sometimes it’s wrong 2/5
Bus in 4 minutes? Maybe. Or maybe you’ll watch it drive past as your app suddenly jumps from “4 minutes” to “Boarding” (also inaccurate), then 15 minutes ’til the next one.
66 bus real time absent 5/5
Not always accurate 2/5
Not always accurate
Issues loading 3/5
I love this app and rely on it heavily, but there have been issues with bus arrival times loading as of late, so you're aware.
I think there should be a place where people can verify if the bus or public transportation has arrived or not
Not accurate 2/5
By Bing bong 62
This app is not very accurate when it comes to the timing of the MBTA busses and trains in Boston.
Awesome app 5/5
By Э RStar Є
I love the way this app functions and gets you real time approximation of how far away the train, bus etc. is.
Lately it either shows the time, shows it for a few seconds and then it disappears and then comes back again and again, or it doesn’t show it at all for at least 30 minutes at a time.
Fix this 2/5
Too many glitches. Not accurate. Not showing up any times !!! Get it together
Stopped working 4/5
The app works fine but on 4/9/2019 it decided to not show any bus times
Easily the Best MBTA bus and subway tracker. 5/5
Very accurate and informative including up to date service alerts
Good when it works but it rarely does 2/5
By Netflix And Chill ™
The app will randomly stop working and won’t show any times. Very frustrating will raise to 5 stars if they fix it
What happened? 2/5
Loved this app but since updating it no longer shown any train times.
Is it just me? Is there a bug in the update?
It’s been excellent til this afternoon! 5/5
I hope I’m able to restore it again!
So happy 5/5
Not Accurate at All!!!! 1/5
By Boston Strong '17
This app is not accurate/reliable at all especially for the Silverline.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Bus comes when app says it’s still 15 minutes away, app says bus is boarding when bus is still 12 minutes away. What garbage
Subway car numbers 3/5
By el pesao 43
As a transit worker it would be helpful to have the train numbers added to the next arrival trains, this helps employees better assist customers.
As reliable as the MBTA 1/5
Much like MBTA service, this app is trash.
Artie -8 5/5
I would like to say I have very poor vision I think it would be very nice if they have a way to tell me where I am and what buses are right near where I am at the time I think it would be extremely helpful least to me A lot of times I cannot read the signs where I am and lotta times I don’t have the numbers on a pole that I can see beyond that I think you guys have come up with the best service with the transit system that I’ve seen in a long time I would love to hear from you guys thank you
Completely unhelpful 1/5
Certain bus routes stopped displaying arrival times, turns out the route changed and the app neither updated nor notified about it
Not accurate 1/5
Multiple times I have waited at a bus stop, the app says the bus is approaching, and it doesn’t. Then says you need to wait 20 mins for the next bus. Makes no sense, where’s my bus???
3 stars 3/5
Still having problems on keeping up to know when the 11 bus comes on L street and M street in southie.
Perfect app 5/5
Most accurate with seconds
Largely unhelpful for buses 2/5
When buses are running frequently and the weather is good and the traffic isn’t bad, this app works fine enough for main bus routes, though I imagine that’s more a function of the probability of it being accurate give a higher density of buses. However, if it isn’t rush hour, this app is near useless for buses. I have spent 40 minutes at a bus stop that was perpetually 2-3 minutes away according to proximiT’s predictions. Also, unlike the Nextbus app, which is unfortunately no longer supported for Boston transportation, ProximiT does not show you where the buses are on the map, so it’s impossible to make your own best guess. In short, the bus arrival time estimates are wildly unreliable and the app is only marginally useful.
