Now you only need 1 public transport app, wherever you go!

• 500+ cities, 1 app
Gone are the days of needing a different public transport app for any city you visit. Embark works in in over 35 countries!

• Live, real-time transit information
Tap on any stop or station to see the services arriving next, including live times - so you know when that next bus, train, ferry or tram is actually arriving instead of just when it's supposed to.

• Upcoming Stop Alerts
Now you can get notified when you're approaching your stop, even if you don't have Embark open - just tap the bell icon the next time you plan a journey and we'll let you know when it's time to get off.

• One-tap directions to your favourite places
Add and save your favourite destinations, so you can quickly get step-by-step directions to them, from wherever you are.

• Uber integration
Search for a destination or tap on one of your favourites to see Uber as an option beneath public transport ones - we give you a fare estimate as well. Just tap to book!

• Live times on your Apple Watch
Now all you need to do is glance at your wrist to see when your next bus, train, tram or ferry is arriving!

• A tailored content to keep you entertained
Time will fly while on your trip. Embark serves up a feed of the web's most popular content in a personalised feed that you can save or share.

• Better information, stuff that matters
Type in a destination and Embark will show you the best options to get there, with important details like carbon emissions and the calories you'll burn.

• Next-gen interaction with screens
Like magic, you'll very soon be able to interact with screens at stops and stations, just by being near them. Vote on that poll, download that trailer, or like that jacket for later!

• More value just for you, near you
Embark understands your frequented routes, so keep an eye on the map for freebies and other offers at places you love!

Get on board!

Great app, bring back MTA Map please

I’ve always liked this app. Please bring back the mta train map. It was great seeing the different routes and seeing the different train lines all at one. Please, please bring it back. Or at least have it as a feature where you can check or uncheck to see it

Definitely NOT like to old awesome Embark apps

It's a great idea, have only one travel app. The problem- it only offers uber as my transportation option. The old apps gave me door to door directions, metro maps, the names of the stops in between and a walking map. I am trying it in the Boston area, even traveling from T (subway) stop to T stops and it tells me to take uber. Very frustrating. Please bring back the old apps until this has significantly improved.

Ruined App!!!!

I’m shocked that this app was absolutely ruined! If I wanted to take Uber, I wouldn’t be using a public transit app- I’d use my Uber app!!! This used to be so helpful for planning travel in Boston; I could clearly and easily see multiple options for MBTA train and commuter rail times, names and number of stops between me and my destination, and walking maps. I’m so bummed, the new version is useless. Developers missed the mark on user wants & needs with this one by a long shot.
