MBTA Arrivial times in May 2016

Each morning I catch the same P508 train from Framingham. In May 2016, my "arriving to work" time has improved almost every day during the month:

I tracked my arrival time by using the If this than that application on my iPhone. I use the popular "Track you work hours" recipe to record when I arrive and leave work. It automatically records when I arrive at my office every morning. I have had this enabled since November 18, 2015.

Usually I don't look at it, but I thought it would be interesting to see the data since the schedule was changed during the last week of the month. It does look like the new schedule is getting me to work quicker.

During school vacation week in February, I had to take a later train. That's why the arrival times were high for three days. On March 3rd, I had to take the later p514 train, that accounts for the latest arrival time during this period.

The purple trend line shows that the MBTA seems to be heading in the right direction with getting the trains to show up on time.
