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.
