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

  • Red line arrival times are garbage 1/5

    By red line rydah
    Don’t download if you want an app that shows you ETA for the T
  • Is this gps driven? 2/5

    By ECFL
    I’ve used it for 12 weeks and most of the time it’s spot on but occasionally it shows a bus arriving in 1 min and then all of a sudden it jumps to 15 min, and then a bus actually arrives in 4 min. This make me suspicious it is primarily driven by MBTA schedule and not real bus gps. Also please add a ‘leave now’ timer that I can set for X minutes before my bus arrives
  • Never accurate 1/5

    By MBTAcrone
    I’ve had this app for a few months now and it could just be the T but it is never accurate. It’s not even close. The time also jumps back and forth and the location settings are also off. It’s just not useful.
  • It works... mostly. 3/5

    By Matthias9119
    Good at giving you the schedule at a glance. But at least where I am, it’s too aggressive with real time bus arrival times. Been burned multiple times when the app says there’s 2-3 minutes until the bus arrives and I watch it roll by from a couple blocks away as I’m walking towards the stop.
  • Works ridiculously accurate by second 5/5

    By Rohn Patel
    If it says 8 seconds then in 8 seconds train is at the station!
  • Inaccurate AF 1/5

    By Santidltp
    I was waiting for the 99 bus in Willington station. It said that the bus was going to be in the station in 1hr. 3 minutes later, the bus appeared. I have noticed a few inconsistencies since the update. They must’ve pushed a new bug.
  • New user 5/5

    By 5 am bird
    Don’t jinx it so far 👍🤓❤️
  • Thanks for this App 5/5

    By MZBoston
    Very reliable App. It has never failed me. I love it.
  • Ugh 2/5

    By Lemlem48
    The app is nice but it doesn’t have all the trains. The D line at park doesn’t show up but there is a train.
  • On point 5/5

    By C=D=Saved
    I find it reliable.
  • Meh 2/5

    By BSABill
    Ok if everything’s running right, but when there’s a service problem it can have no bearing on reality.
  • Awesome App 5/5

    By AdeCes
    I use this app every single day. Spot on. Always accurate. Must have.
  • Best T companion app 5/5

    By Juansmacias11
    I have used it for a couple of months and it’s the best. Timing is precise and reliable.
  • I never miss my bus or train 5/5

    By Atlashrggd
    Real time updates keep me on time. I rely on this app a lot. Excellent !! 👍🏼👍🏼
  • Great 5/5

    By Pink Nectari
    Always useful extremely accurate, great download
  • never on time 1/5

    By Vensssen
    what's the point of the app?
  • Accurate and Helpful 5/5

    By Ly_hin
    It’s a must have app for Boston commuters using the T.
  • Don’t rely on this app 2/5

    By Direct fan
    This app is often inaccurate by at least 1-2 minutes and sometimes tells you nothing at all. It will say 6 mins til the next train but then jump to 2, not helpful. Also it would be even more helpful if it told you expected time of arrival on the other end... still needs a lot of work.... at least it’s free... otherwise I would want my $& back.
  • Right on time 5/5

    By Karanjah G.
    As far as I can see this app is very reliable, typically the times are spot on but if the counter goes down to zero and the transportation has not arrived yet it will keep on resetting to give you the most correct time
  • Pointless for Green Line 2/5

    By Kaz Riprock
    What's the point of a countdown when it just keeps resetting to 60s when it is wrong? 2m...1m...1m...1m...
  • Naw I'm good 1/5

    By DAJ_Leo
    I rather use google map
  • Completely inaccurate & unreliable 1/5

    By sammykid08
    Absolutely terrible app. Timing is wrong roughly 60% of the time, often phantom busses never show up, and some do not even appear on the app at all. Imagine getting an Uber or taxi only to see a bus pulling up as you get in.
  • Best App for "Finding" Your Ride 5/5

    By ElisaPrincess
    This is the BEST App for Actually Finding where Your Bus OR Train is in Real Time! I Love It!! Awesome!!
  • Horrible 1/5

    By sjdkkdkdk
    Literally has never worked once for the bus
  • Pretty good reference for the T 4/5

    By C G W
    It's probably difficult to try to track the subways and buses here but this app does a pretty good job
  • Always uses location 1/5

    By Neutralresponse
    Please add feature to only use location when app is in use.
  • Great for MBTA riders 5/5

    By someone in boston
    Helpful and elegant.
  • Amazing! 4/5

    By MyGirlTerri
    From time to time the bus schedule is off, but other than that I've had great luck planning my commutes to and from work.
  • Really good except 5/5

    By Ear Sharpener
    Location services aren't configured correctly, which is both a privacy and a battery conservation issue. Proxima-T is constantly polling for location, even when I leave the app. This app doesn't need to know my location when I'm not using it, so there should be an option under privacy settings for it to only be able to use location services when the app is open. But the only options are "Always" and "Never". That aside, really well put together app!
  • Wrong bus schedule 3/5

    By McRyach
    I used to use this app often. I understand that making live bus schedule with all the updates is a hard work. After a few times missing my bus due to wrong update I found better App. "Transit" is way better! If you want a reliable updates don't bother installing ProximiT.
  • Gets the job done 5/5

    By bostondoc
    Gives me accurate timing of my incoming buses. And is able to inform me ahead of time any T-issues pertaining to my subway line. So far...I'm well satisfied.
  • Nice app 5/5

    By Sunetra Banerjee
    Good app.. Very accurate
  • So far so good 4/5

    By Holodoque
    I'm not used to 8-10 minute subway intervals, so the app has been very handy. I didn't test it everywhere yet, but the red line numbers are quite accurate so far
  • Nice! 4/5

    By Subway Steve!
    Very helpful on the job!
  • Great App 5/5

    By Kaypeezzz
    Very useful to know real time bus and subway schedules! Easy to use and works great!
  • Loc while not using the app 1/5

    By andythechef
    You want my location while not using the app... that means you're either a crap developer or doing something too invasive. Uninstalled before I even used it.
  • Great for red, orange lines, not for green line 3/5

    By Hipster Kale
    According to ProximiT, there is never any upcoming service for the green line. This is quite anxiety provoking if you're at a terminus and need to get into the city.
  • Easy to use and accurate 5/5

    By Coc clasher for 2 years
    The app is easy to use and accurate, I love the simple design.
  • Excellent app 2/5

    By BL484957272
    Thank you for this. Interface looks great, is intuitive, has most everything you need to figure out your trip. Seems to be very accurate with the timing but I'll have to test it on the notoriously unreliable CT2 Update: CT2 updates are extremely unreliable. Please fix.
  • Useless 1/5

    By Heath hen
    ...since it is never correct on trains, what's the point? Maybe they go by schedule, in which case: what's the point?
  • Looks useful but can't limit location services 2/5

    By Howlatthemoon
    I don't need another app tracking location all the time. It's a privacy problem and uses battery. No thanks
  • Green Line Update 1/5

    By ndanz1456
    None of the green line stations have any times going to Lechmere. Only heath street. I thought maybe if I download it and reload it it would fix the problem and it didn't.
  • I love it 5/5

    By Byronkats
    I love that it has both bus and subway schedules
  • Change Location Settings 1/5

    By Micultra8
    I would give this app 5 stars, except their location settings are Never and Always. When they change the settings to While Using, I will update my review. Pros include a countdown timer to train/bus arrival, very helpful. And a great way to save frequently used routes.
  • wow 5/5

    By nickwang555
    amazing app
  • The best one I've used thus far 3/5

    By Zeet109
    Not bad! Better than most but, considering that what's out there in terms of mbta tracking apps is not that reliable, it could still be better. I gave it a solid 3 stars but sometimes it performs better than that. Hopefully, future upgrades will make it even better!
  • Time not accurate 2/5

    By Phresh32
    Will tell you train is going to be in here in 2mins then resets and says another 3 min which is still wrong smh
  • Unreliable 2/5

    By RickyChangs
    Very inaccurate in ways that it seems to only predict the arrival of some trains
  • Pretty good overall 4/5

    By Major Harris 333
    I downloaded this app because a friend recommended it for making the bus on time, and it's definitely helped wit this. My only complaint is that it's not always accurate and sometimes screws me over on the way to school.
  • Exactly what I was looking for! 5/5

    By € Gary €
    Love the design and capabilities. I get out of my car at Sullivan and never know whether to run or not. This app tells me exactly when the next couple of trains are coming for nearby stations, leveraging the real time info provided by the MBTA. So cool! Thank you!
