Access the latest information about MBTA bus service in the Greater Boston area, including predicted arrival times and next-bus locations for your favorite stops or for any stop in the system, with Beat of the City:Boston.

Stops you mark as ‘favorites’ appear on the main screen for one-tap access to their predictions. Maps show your location, bus route, selected stop, and the next several buses to arrive at that stop, all based on real-time GPS data from the MBTA.

See MBTA service alerts (“T-Alerts”) reporting delays, route detours, relocated stops, etc., for the entire MBTA system as well as for individual bus routes as you select them.

Most screens provide detailed help at the tap of a button.
