MBTA Winter HappensAs part of the MBTA’s comprehensive plan to prepare for winter, the T is releasing the findings of an online survey in which customers indicated which apps they find most useful in their daily commutes.

The recent survey collected 1,925 responses online. It asked people to indicate which apps they liked, and what they liked about them. The summary table shows what each apps’ users find most helpful about that app, and for which mode they use it.

The survey consisted of 11 apps, which were selected from more than 60 apps that were created and submitted by independent developers, and are based on the MBTA’s real-time tracking and alerts data.

An analysis shows that different apps are used for different modes and purposes, and subway, bus, commuter rail and ferry customers choose the apps best suited to their needs. Visit the T’s winter weather page to learn more.

In addition to the survey, the MBTA 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.

Check the entire list of MBTA apps.
