Friday, September 11, 2009 article about iPhone MBTA Apps doesn't name them, much less link to them.

Here's the Globe article that talks about iPhone Apps but fails to mention their names:
State transportation officials said the decision to open up transportation schedules to computer software developers has already paid off with the creation of two iPhone applications that could help people trying to catch a train or a bus.

One app - a computer program that runs on iPhones - shows the user where the closest Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority station is located, while another indicates when the next train or bus is coming.

A third app could be useful for people planning a trip to the Registry of Motor Vehicles. It shows users the current Registry wait times, said Colin Durrant, a spokesman for the Executive Office of Transportation.
Here are four iPhone MBTA Apps:

Also, the Google Maps App on the iPhone is great at showing train schedules.

  1. Thanks Steve for mentioning our "to a T" app. We're the "one" that shows the closest stops.
