The MBTA reminds riders commuting in winter weather who have smartphones to consider using one of the many "real-time" applications now available to track bus, train, and subway arrival times and locations.
Since MBTA began releasing real-time and schedule data, developers have been busy building innovative applications that make riding the T easier.
In addition to Service Alerts available at MBTA.com, these applications available for web, cell phone and smartphone give you the information you need to get around the system.
On the MBTA website App Showcase page you will find some of the many applications built by developers.
You can also find applications by searching "MBTA" in your phone’s app store.
