Just like the MBTA, this app is totally useless and unreliable. It will tell you for 15 minutes that a bus is 1 min away and then finally the bus disappears. This happens at least 4-5 times a week. Do not use if you are basing your personal schedule around these bus times. Terrible app, terrible public transit system.

Great App

I’ve been using this app for a couple of years and I have find it very accurate about bus arrival times. Had a little troubles this week and reach out to the developer. I got an immediate response. Just needed an upgrade and works fine again. I would recommend this to anyone taking the T.

This is hands down my favorite app for navigating the MBTA bus system. I use this app everyday. I tried other navigation/tracking bus apps and found they were too cumbersome, offered too much info on one page or constantly send me alerts when I don’t need them. With Catch the Bus, I can save multiple routes and multiple stops along the routes, in either direction - “My Routes”. When I tap on a stop, I can see the info about that stop only, clearly, with no other distractions or annoying ads. It gives the estimated time the bus is due and lists the next 3-4 busses due. When the bus is less than a minute away, it beeps to alert you. With other apps, I can’t toggle down to one route and sometimes it’s difficult to understand the direction of the bus at the stop inbound vs. outbound). I don’t have time for that. The app is almost always accurate based on the gps location of the bus. However, it can’t always take into account the amount of traffic. I live in an extremely high traffic area, so a bus that is “2 minutes” away may take 5-6 minutes to crawl down my street. You can actually look up and see the bus stuck in traffic, with cars trying to merge in front or pass around it. That’s not the apps fault! On Monday AM rush hour, a bus 2 minutes away (8 -10 blocks away) means I can finish my coffee and still make it to the stop. On Sunday morning, I know that 2 minutes away means “grab your coat and get out the door”. The MBTA is always running late due to multiple factors- you can’t blame the app for that! Absolutely the best app for ease of use, clear, large easy to read graphics and predictability! The developer is super responsive and really cares about your experience! Make your life easier and download this! I can’t live without it!!

No longer works for Boston

Stopped working a few months ago. Contacted the developer and responded to a few of his questions. No update and still not working. Disappointing because I really liked this app.

This app has a simple interface with no distractions which means you can focus on that single most important thing: the countdown to when the bus is coming. In the 5 years I’ve been using it, it has never steered me wrong.

Completely unreliable

Astaireo's Review of Catch The Bus

Reviewed on 12/13/18 1:01 PM

Loses my saved stops constantly, and sometimes my saved stops won't even show up on the 'saved' list. Predictions are usually right, but a decent job transit app should give accurate times 100% of the time because that's the entire point for the app. Can't tell you how many times I have missed buses and been late for work or other things directly because of this app. I have been stuck walking home or needing a taxi because this app's last bus of the night predictions were incorrect and all over the place - bus times kept jumping around for literally an hour and the bus never showed. I simply cannot rely on this app. I will be deleting it for good and looking for something else.

Bad bad bad bad
