Transit is your real-time urban travel companion. Navigate your city’s public transit system with accurate real-time predictions, simple trip planning, step-by-step navigation, service disruption notifications, and departure and stop reminders... all presented in a clear, bold interface. Public transport not cooperating? Easily request an Uber, reserve a car2go, or grab the closest bike share.
10 GREAT THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH TRANSIT:
1) See real-time arrivals for nearby buses and trains instantly upon launch.
2) Watch your transit vehicle approaching on a map in real-time*
3) Compare options with powerful A to B trip plans using real-time data.
4) Launch GO for step-by-step navigation when you’re on an unfamiliar route or want to nap/read/space out.*
5) Receive departure alarms and stop notifications as well as prompts to pick up the pace in GO.*
6) Get push notifications if service disruptions will affect your commute.
7) View transit schedules and route itineraries—even when you’re offline!
8) Locate bike share stations, see the number of bikes available, pay for passes, and unlock bikes (in select cities).
9) Check ETA (and surge) for nearby Ubers, and book in two taps.
10) View availability and book cars with car2go and other local car-share services.
*continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What's New in Version 4.1.3
Ooooooohweee. That was quite a holiday. Too much whiskey. Too much turkey. Too much Netflix. (And not enough chill.)
The holiday had its ups. But it had its downs, too: San Francisco’s agency real-time went down (and is still down on many lines!)
TRANSIT TO THE RESCUE: hours after the agency real-time tracker broke, we rolled out something special from our North Pole HQ: crowdsourced real-time data.
Citizens of the Silicon City are no longer deprived of their luscious real-time data. Now, riders are providing it themselves. Is your city deprived of (good) real-time data? We’ve got something special in store… stay tuned. For a sneak peak: medium.com/@transitapp
Beyond our Bay Area hijinks...
While our app was busy stuffing itself on holiday fare—some dastardly bugs took advantage of its sluggish, inflated state.
Well thank heavens for cleanses. Kombucha cleanse. Kale cleanse. Upside down hot yoga-and-SoulCycle cleanse. We're calling it the Bad Bougie Cleanse. And boy oh boy ain’t it effective.
Transit's insides are now as clean as a whistle. As sparkly as cider. And with fewer bugs than an exterminator’s flamethrower.
In other words—the bugs be gone. (At least the ones that we know of.)
So say hello to 2017. And Hello New Year’s resolutions: less whiskey, more GO, and flamethrowers galore.
Please rate us 5 shining bright stars (because kale can’t grow in the dark.)
You GO!, Transit
Now, if only there was a way to 1) tell the app what MY "commute hours" are so that I may receive service advisories more reliably and 2) set notifications for recurring trips (e.g. the 8:01 train, Mon-Fri.
Even better, it'd be cool if the existing extension - or another new one - could access my calendar and show me travel options to my next destination based upon where I am.
I even think the latter scenario would make an "Auto-GO!" option useful: enable GO! when the travel time to a calendar event - or stop with an existing alert/reminder - begins ;)
Like This App Needs Another Five-Star Review
If you look at the public transportation apps featured in the App Store, they almost always have the name "Citymapper". I have yet to comprehend how Apple's App Store editors have the guts to promote Citymapper over the albeit poorly-named app called "Transit". Citymapper's UI is confusing, and the app lacks basic features like real-time navigation of the quality seen in Transit's "GO" functionality.
I'm too lazy to write more, so you can just read over all of the other glowing reviews to get a sense for how great Transit is.
App is Great. App update writer is Awesome.
I use the app almost daily and it's pretty great and accurate. Sometimes the GPS locator + arrival estimation is a bit off at times but I blame that more on human error. However, I believe my highest review goes out to the guy/gal who writes the descriptions for the app updates. Constantly looking forward to them even more than the bug fixes, to be honest. So whoever you are, keep it up and know that you're duly appreciated.
