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

App installs always spike in winter. But compare this year to others... pic.twitter.com/HwYEXVVa3I— T-on-Time Boston (@tontimeboston) February 17, 2015
