MbtaLoc Pro is released. The pro version of this app has predictions arrival times of MBTA Bus, Subway and Commuter Rail along with real time locations and a bunch of other great new features.


This app gets the real-time locations (GPS) of MBTA Buses. It uses the feed provided by MBTA in getting the current location of buses in and around the Boston(neighborhood) and the surrounding areas. You can also use this to know the exact bus location if the predicted time of arrival is incorrect.

- Shows the current direction and the time since the bus reported its last known location (typically 30-40 seconds).
- Live Traffic data embedded onto Google maps so you will know if a bus is stuck in a traffic jam.
- Shows the bus route so that you get a clear idea of where the bus is heading.
- Bookmarking your favorite bus routes for convenience and fast access.
- Added ability to recognize the direction of buses directly from the image.

    This is a lightweight app that doesn't use much data. It is also very accurate, and can help me plan out my trip. Used on android 2.3.6.

    It is a simple and great app to keep track of the T. Should be used by all boston T users.
