Terrier Transit is your key to getting to, from, and around Boston University.
Transportation is an integral part of life at Boston University. Whether you ride the BU Shuttle (BUS), the T, MBTA buses, or a Bluebike, to reach classes, labs, dorms, or dining halls, getting the best urban mobility information is critical – from trips to between campuses or just up and down Commonwealth Avenue. Enter BU’s Terrier Transit app, powered by Moovit! Terrier Transit guides you from point A to B in the easiest and most efficient way. Get T and bus times, maps, and real-time arrival times with ease so you can plan your trip with confidence. Find critical alerts and service disruptions for your favorite lines, including the BUS. Get step-by-step directions of optimal route bus, train, metro, bike, scooter or a combination of them.
Terrier Transit is your personal assistant for trips on-campus and off!
► Real time arrivals. View real-time arrival updates, which are taken directly from GPS devices positioned on BU buses and MBTA buses and trains. Avoid wasting time guessing train times or bus times.
► Real time alerts. Know about issues ahead of time by receiving MBTA and BU service alerts such as emergency or unexpected disruptions, delays, traffic jams, new construction, and more so that you can plan ahead if your bus time or train time changed.
► Live Directions. Get step-by-step bus directions and other transit directions with live guidance from A-to-B: Know how long you need to walk to your station, view the arrival time of your line, receive get-off alerts at your destination, and more.
► Users reports. Terrier Transit’s users report issues found with stations, line service, and schedules so that we can inform all nearby riders about what’s going on in their area.
► Favorite lines, stations, and places. Always going between Central Campus and BUMC? Get easy access to lines, stations, and places you ride and visit all the time. Plus, get real-time updates if/when there are changes to your favorite lines in case your bus time or train time is impacted!
► Bike routes. Get bike routes in addition to the bus, subway, train, or metro trip plans. If you ride bikes (yours or shared) we can plan a route that includes the train or bus. Terrier Transit will help you plan a trip that meets your transit-needs. Bluebikes station data is updated in real-time.
► Maps view. Interested in seeing the whole picture? View all stations, routes, and lines on the subway or bus map. Additionally, maps are available in PDF for when you’re offline, or underground on the subway.
► International functionality. Terrier Transit isn’t just for getting around campus. It will also work for study abroad and trips home. The app can be used to navigate nearby buses and transit nationwide and across 98 other countries. If you’d like to know bus times and train times in London, Barcelona, Madrid, or Rome, or, if you need to find out when the last bus leaves a certain bus stop in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Melbourne, Seoul, Terrier Transit has you covered. You ride, we guide!

Ratings and Reviews
It’s great for checking in your immediate area, but trying to check a location a block away is so confusing / over complicated.
A must have and use it everyday
I’d agree that including other buses is not necessary since we just want to track the school bus here. But it’s fine. This app is very useful and my friends and I use it everyday. Except the rush hour when everything goes crazy, the GPS of bus and schedule is pretty good! Given the complicated transportation, there’s no way* to make sure anything arrives *exactly on time*, you know.
Vast improvement from original app
The original BU app was nearly useless and unintuitive. Unlike the other reviewer, I thoroughly appreciate the integration of other public transit, since most of us need to be able to combine the BU Shuttle with other forms of transit to make a commute—I was tired of switching between multiple apps so this new version is comparatively excellent.
