Wellesley commuter rail riders to get more of a clue
Keolis, the MBTA’s operating partner for the commuter rail, has announced an updated MBTA Commuter Rail App that includes a new interface, push notification train alerts, average seat availability, track assignments, average on-time performance data and real-time train tracking. As a regular rider myself, I can vouch for the T’s relatively on-time performance of late, though trains have often been SRO at peak times.
Passengers can set a reminder to alert them 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes before a train’s arrival or departure.
The app also allows passengers to submit feedback to the customer service team, and it includes Lost & Found forms.
Keolis’s updated MBTA Commuter Rail App is available at the Apple App Store and Google Play. It is available in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese (Brazil) and Chinese.
