Past it? This used to be great. It's fading fast. First the blue line was wrong off and on, then wrong almost all the time. The orange line followed suit. It was wrong more often than right. Now nothing is correct most of the time. If you need to be on time, this is not the app for you. Sad because in the winter time you want to time your trip to the train station properly. You can no longer use this app for that.
Shows trains one stop ahead of actual positions The interface is neat, but it seems to consistently show trains about a stop or two ahead of their actual positions. I initially figured that was because the MBTA was providing bad data, but then I tried another app and found that its positions for the trains were much more accurate.
Does not show trains running, never mind "real time." Doesn't show the orange line train that I'm on or the train that just went by me in the other direction. "MBTA real time" USED to work. 12/9/14...MBTA Real time T Boston, still useless.
Orange line is not accurate, it might be off by one station. Outbound to forest it showed the train arriving at Chinatown as the train pulled into dtc
Ugh Off by quite a bit on both days I tried it for the orange line...nice idea though.
From what I've heard it works great, but it DOES NOT WORK FOR THE GREEN LINE. I refunded though, so it's no big deal.
