"The next train is five minutes behind us..."

Anyone who rides the MBTA Commuter Rail in and out of Boston has heard this. Probably multiple times. But is that train really five minutes away?

And when you show up to the station on a cold February morning, look around and way more people than there should be, do you think "Hey, where is my train?"

Trainspotter is a commuter rail rider's view of the MBTA. Select your train line, and view real-time updates of train locations and lateness information from the MBTA. Trains are displayed on a map of the system with pin colors indicating lateness. Access a list of current trains on your line to view their ETA to next stop.

While we're all hoping the commuter rail will run better than it did in the Winter of 2015, Trainspotter is your commuter rail companion to help see what trains are where.
