About ProximiT: MBTA Bus and Subway

Developer Description

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.

App Reviews

  • Pretty good

    By MKQMA
    I have found that the timing of different stops works differently. I take the red line and know that if the app tells me I have 5 minutes until the next Braintree train at South Station, it is really more like 7 minutes. But if it says 5 minutes at North Quincy it is really 3. I’m not sure what the trigger is for each of these stops but as long as you know the real timing, the app is accurate.
  • Good info

    By MShim
    ProximiT is very helpful in planning my travels with the MBTA. I live near several T lines, so it helps me decide where to go to start a trip. It’s also improved its reporting as the T improved its data. I only wish they would provide info near the end of a line when a trip hasn’t yet started. (Of course, that assumes the T has — & follows —a schedule!)
  • Good Idea, Poor Performance

    By SlkGrk
    I have used this app for about two months now. It works great when there is no traffic, however this is Boston and there is almost always traffic. It only updates every 5 minutes or so, and the majority of the time I find myself waiting an additional 10 minutes. The only reason I didnt give it one star is because its still (to my knowledge) the best option out there
  • Good app compatible with iOS 11

    By mbta rider 2018
    This is a good app, which is compatible with the most recent iOS. I can see the dash board of favorites at a glance. Though I wish it allows rearranging the order of the favorite stops. Once in a while, it could lose all signals, but overall it’s pretty reliable.
  • It works... mostly.

    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.
  • Very unreliable

    By Spelt <3
    I’ve found I can no longer trust this app. I’ve had situations where it lists the bus as 2 minutes away, only to see the bus drive by as I near the stop. I’ve also had situations where it lists the bus as a few minutes away and I end up waiting 20 minutes for it. I think on average I would end up waiting the same amount of time if I walked to the stop without looking at the app and hoping to get lucky.
  • What’ happened

    By Larry1184
    I have used this app for the better part of 2 years and have always found it right on. Recently I noticed that the next train is not listed but the one after it is. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling. No luck. Has something changed ? So my rating before would have been a 5, now it is a 2
  • Just downloaded

    By Murabbi
    Would love an option to be able to mute the apps notifications for a set period of time (say, when I’m at work) instead of receiving notifications when I’m near those trains and busses.
  • Looks good!

    By LoJo2Go
    I just installed and used it. It looks good do far. I could not find a help section for questions and couldn’t open the support page in Apps. Is there a way to reorganize favorites if you didn’t add them in order?
  • Is this gps driven?

    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
