TAKING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN THE BOSTON AREA HAS BECOME EASIER FOR LOCALS AND TOURISTS ALIKE DUE TO THE NEXTBUS APPLICATION
Several user friendly tools have popped up in the last few years that are helping commuters in Boston. When riding the MBTA transit systems, riders are accessing NextBus data to easily track the bus schedule, and arrival times. Its not only free, but also easy for riders to use as they simply need a data phone to access the website with all of the route and schedule information.
How it works:
- Riders visit www.nextbus.com and choose MBTA as their transit system
- They can choose the route number, direction or bus stop and obtain predictions for when the next two buses will arrive.
- Tourists can even see the routes on a map to help them determine the best route to take.
