MBTA Rail App Description

MBTA Rail provides experienced Boston commuters with as much information as possible about the location and status of their trains. This app is designed for seasoned commuters who are already familiar with their line schedule. Features include: • Near real-time location information (next stop, current stop, GPS location, predicted arrival time, and vehicle speed) • Boarding track numbers • See your train on a map along with other trains along your route • View historical coach numbers, boarding tracks, and average on time percentages • Crowd-sourced information. Is a prediction wrong? Train delayed mid-trip? Wondering if your train is standing room only? Discuss through the "Reports" button next to each trip • Full schedule view with predicted arrival times for each stop • Service alerts (delays, cancellations, track changes, etc.) • Clean, user-friendly, and ad-free interface Note: data is sourced directly from the MBTA's real-time feeds which is collected using PTIS equipment installed on the trains. We don't make any predictions ourselves; this app is simply an interface for the MBTA's data. This app is as accurate as the MBTA's data allows us to be. We are NOT affiliated with the MBTA, Keolis, or MassDOT. Follow us on Twitter at @MBTARailTracker for updates.

MBTA Rail App Reviews

  • An excellent app indeed

    By PD5775
    This is a most helpful app. Function is top notch and is reliable Understanding the data comes from the MBTA the app does a great job of presenting it!
  • Be a commuter rail insider

    By Barry-128
    This app is the perfect combination of schedule data and crowdsourced comments. If you want to know exactly what’s causing a delay, up to the minute, this is it. Also great for knowing what track a train is departing from way before it’s announced. But shh, don’t tell TOO many people!
  • Accurate times

    By Jenl633
    This app has been very helpful for my daughter getting to and from college. I would definitely recommend this app. 👍
  • Best app ever…

    By Mikeejooooo
    My wife and I Love this app! It provides the most accurate and up-to-date information in a format that easy to read and understand. We have other apps, but this is our primary! Keep up the good work!
  • App is not intuitive at all

    By Pbm39
    Stop taking trains off the board that are not even close to Boston.
  • Poorly designed

    By Mattsp
    Difficult to find correct trains or next train
  • Parade ridership

    By every day rider
    This is absolutely unacceptable. Where are the extra train that were promised? And why the express train had to make all local stops when the train is filled to capacity and there is not even a standing room. In the morning people who were going to work were left on the platforms. I don’t think MBTA/Keolis can handle anything
  • Waste of $0.99

    By Jedi42
    The app doesn’t work for the Needham line.
  • Go-to app for MBTA commuter rail

    By No Middle Initial
    The best app for CR. Superior to the official Keolis app. Easy to use and nicely designed.
  • Boarding info not showing

    By snl_323
    Issue has since been fixed - 5 stars because I love this app! For the last couple of days the “boarding on track” info hasn’t been showing. Is this an app glitch or an MBTA issue? If it’s app-related, can you fix it? This app is my lifeline!
