Calling all commuters: The MBTA is planning on making your commute easier by making an app to let riders buy tickets in advanced, according to CBS Boston. The T is asking for help from commuters in developing this app, asking riders to sign up for email alerts, which will give updates on this project and, eventually, ask riders to try out the early version of this app once the program goes public.
Charlestown has it's share of tech companies, and you techies might be particularly useful in the beta testing process.
The MBTA has been steadily working on smartphone apps for iPhone and Andriod devices to help riders get where they are going more efficiently. Here are a whole slew of apps designed to make riders experience easier.
