MBTA Tracker tells MBTA riders how many minutes are left until the next bus comes. MBTA Tracker works with all bus stations and for all route directions in the MBTA system.

Stop names can be sorted alphabetically or according to distance from the user's location. Alphabetical sorted stops have a tappable index for quick access and search functionality.

Additional features include walking directions to any selected bus stop and storage of favorite stops. Stops can also be found through their respective route. Routes can be sorted alphabetically or by route number.

With this application, you will never be in a rush when not necessary. You can savor your last minutes drinking a coffee knowing that it isn't until 7 more minutes that the bus will come. Never wait for buses again. Just two iPhone screen touches will put all the information you need in front of you immediately.

Other very nice features:

-Google map showing user's location as well as nearest bus stops. Bus stops can be tapped in order to display arrival times for all buses going through the stop.

-Google map showing user's location as well as the location and travel direction of buses corresponding to the current selected route.

What's New in Version 1.1

Fixed bug where arrivals for stations selected from the big station list showed ordered by route. Now arrivals are all ordered as a group from closest to longest waiting time. Some users where seeing that routes they were interested in weren't showing. Now you should be OK!
