The Boston area public transport operator MBTA held a competition during the summer to select an “endorsed” user application. The agency decided that having a single, full service app can provide a tremendous improvement in customer experience. The MBTA evaluated four apps: Transit App, Moovit, Swiftly and Moovel. In September 2016 the MBTA chose Transit App as the winner. More information:
