What’s New

Version 2021.3

New in this release: search your contacts, live times in Directions and route maps, and more.

Now there's a new item in the search bar - Choose from Contacts. Tap on this and choose one of your contacts in your address book. If they have an address included in the contact details, we'll tell you how to get there. Of course, you can also add their address as a saved location.

Now when you search for directions, we'll show you the next train or bus on your trip straight away, without having to tap on a trip to see step-by-step instructions. The same goes for route maps - if you're near a stop, we'll show the next arrival times at that stop.

Also in this release:

• You can now type in coordinates (latitude and longitude) into the search bar. It's probably not useful to that many people, but it's really useful to us when testing!
• Sync will wait until you have a decent cellular signal or on Wi-Fi before syncing, to save precious mobile data.

Until next time, happy commuting!

Iris Amelia ,

Excellent app, hope it gets even more attention!

This is my go-to app for Boston transit (MBTA). The Live Tracking functionality is great; being able to save specific stops on routes in differing directions is really nice. The overall design is slicker than its predecessor, and feels faster. Interested to see how notifications will go, overall live tracking accuracy, and how route “wellness” is measured. Congrats to the team for upgrading the Boston app to Whiz!

So far so awesome!

User friendly, detailed sarray of nearby stops and favorites quickly available! Real-time gps update of busses and trains so you know if your are going to be able to make it to the stop on time! Very cool!

I’m glad I was able to restore my purchase from the old version as well! I was kind of frustrated when I heard you guys weren’t going to be updating the old app because I hate ads!

Totally Great

Love the app and how I can plan a trip. I know exactly what bus or train I need to be on, and can track my location live. I cannot always hear the bus or train location. It is nice to know where to get off on my route and what transfers need to be made ahead of time. My only one complaint is that it consumes a lot of my battery while traveling, other than that I would give the app a “5”.
