MBTA Subway MapThe MBTA has launched an online survey that will allow customers to choose their favorite mass transit apps.

The survey consists of 11 apps that participants can rate as their favorite. The 11 apps included in the survey were selected from more than 60 apps that were created and submitted by independent developers, and are based on the T’s real-time tracking and alerts data.

The survey seeks to identify the best real-time apps for commuter rail, subway and bus, and then share those results with the public.

“There are a number of excellent apps available that are valuable resources for riders seeking information in real time,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack. “Especially as we head into the winter season, we want to raise awareness of these tools, so our customers can be armed with important information they can use to plan ahead.”

Customers can vote for their favorite app through Thursday, Nov. 12.

In addition to the survey, the MBTA also encourages the public to sign up for T alerts, and follow us on Twitter @MBTA for service information, and @MBTA_CR for commuter rail service information.

“While we continue our efforts to make the entire MBTA system more weather resilient, we also want to enhance our channels of communicating information to our customers,” said MBTA General Manager Frank DePaola. “By raising the profile of the available smartphone apps, we want to let our customers know they have one more option available to them that will delivery real-time information directly to their smartphones.”

Please review the entire list of MBTA apps.
