I'm sorry I didn't rate this earlier. I love this app. It complements Google maps beautifully, by giving the latest real time best estimates of bus arrival times at every stop. I appreciate the map view as well. I'm so much more comfortable taking the bus with more confidence that I won't be waiting outside so long. Now the downside: Since the latest update on March 3 or 4, many of the screens are very nearly unreadable. I'm on Android 9 or pie, not 10 for which it was updated.

Thanks for the feedback. I just released version 2.24 with the fix for UI issues introduced in version 2.23. You should get the update very soon. Please let me know if the issue is still not fixed. Thanks!

Good app. It's very useful. Accurate arrival times. My 1 criticism (I'm not sure this can be fixed) is that busses may go out of service or change routes at the end of the line. System cannot predict this. So you're wating for the 441 to arrive. It's 3 minutes away, then 2 minutes, then 1. You see it arrive, passengers deboard, the bus turns off, disappears from the system. This is likely only a problem at the end of the line which is a major stop (Oak Grove, Braintree, Alewife)

Thanks! The app uses MBTA's Real-Time api, so the predictions are as good as the data from MBTA. There are no other way to track buses or trains, all the similar apps in Google Play Store are using the same data from MBTA, the difference is just presentation of data.

Real-time predictions for buses are not always completely accurate because of traffic fluctuations, but as good as you could hope for. Plus all the schedules are easy to access through multiple paths. Really allows you to efficiently use your time when commuting. I highly recommend this app for T-riders (both bus and subway - not sure about commuter rail since I don't ride it).
