Dear T-on-Time user,

I developed and launched the T-on-Time app for commuter rail riders in 2009. Since then, T-on-Time has over 12,000 active users and 3,000 visitors per day.

Today, I am going to retire the app.

There are a few reasons for this. Between MBTA schedule changes (like this morning) and cross-platform mobile development in general in the last 5 years, the app requires a major rewrite every year or so just to keep current - unfortunately I am unable to prioritize this work over my career and family life.

In addition:

  1. The small fees I’ve charged don’t cover the costs of hosting and maintaining the app.
  2. There are other apps which are just as good.

Thank you for all your kind words and support in these 6 years. It’s been a “great ride”.
