I have no password on my local database so I put in:

heroku pg:transfer --to "postgres://username@localhost/project-development"

and I get

Error: undefined method url' for #<Array:0x007fdd2a8e06c0> (NoMethodError)
Backtrace: /Users//.heroku/plugins/heroku-pg-transfer/init.rb:88:in

Command:     heroku pg:transfer --to postgres://bmb@localhost/bmb-development
Version:     heroku-gem/2.28.12 (x86_64-darwin11.4.2) ruby/1.9.3

I'm also running into the same issue, but it seems to be failing at init.rb line 24, which is trying resolving the from URL (defaulting to the local app's remote DATABASE_URL). I was able to get it to work by explicitly specifying a --from from heroku config:

heroku pg:transfer --from `heroku config:get DATABASE_URL` --to postgres://localhost/project-development
