Horrendous update

This used to be a fantastic app, but for some idiotic reason they removed the function that showed you the time your train was arriving in real time. Now you have to guess every morning because the trains are not on time each day. It creates extremely unnecessary stress. As I arrived to the station for a 7:53 train I found out only once there it is running 13 minutes late. Would have been nice to know this before I left my house. Bring back this function. I don’t get the point of this app without it.

Completely understand your frustration. The App uses the schedule and alert functions from the MBTA website and there was an update to the website. If you would like to discuss further, please email mticketing@mbta.com.

Works great

I was nervous to use this as my primary method of buying commuter rail tickets after seeing the negative reviews, but after weeks of use I haven’t experienced a single problem, not even a little glitch. I use this for commuting to and from work so for the app to not work for some reason would be a day ruiner. That being said, I have no complaints. I’ve downloaded tickets while doing a full sprint to catch the train and it’s been ready to go when it arrives. I can’t figure out how to see the live updates of trains on it, or maybe you just can’t do that through the app, but that’s not a significant drawback to me.

Smooth and Useful

First time using the app, and everything went just fine. Pay with your card via the app, activate the ticket using the phone right before you board the train, and show the conductor the screen when he/she is checking tickets. Simple as that! No waiting in line! The only drawback is while buying a monthly pass, the app does not support use on the subway system - only the commuter rail. Well worth the download.

Awesome!! So glad to hear that the App was easy and convenient to use!! We understand the frustration not being able to use the monthly pass on the subway system. Unfortunately with the current system, the fare gates do not have the technology to scan the bar codes.
