Boston, we have a winner!
MBTA announced the winner of the agency’s first endorsed transit app on Tuesday. The simply, yet aptly, named Transit App was chosen unanimously by the selection committee, after getting input from the public.
“Transit App’s nearby departure times, push notifications for alerts, and step-by-step directions make it incredibly user-friendly. It greatly improves the customer experience, which was paramount when selecting a winner,” said MBTA General Manager Brian Shortsleeve. “Partnering with Transit App also ensures that our customers will have an easy and convenient way to provide feedback which helps the MBTA continue to improve its service.”
According to MBTA, tens of thousands of Boston transit riders already use Transit App. By partnering with the app, MBTA said riders will be served more efficiently and effectively.
“Transit’s design is the most minimalist of the four, but it is pretty: its bright colors and cool-looking fonts give the app a very polished and straightforward feel,” Metro wrote in a previous review of the finalists.
