What's New in Version 3.4.3

There was a bug that would turn Uber on, even if you turned it off. We're sorry we turned you on, Uber. Bug is fixed now.

Beyond that… we've got big news! We're having a baby.

Her name is "Transit App for the Apple Watch”. She weighs 7 nano-ounces and never cries.

Why did we bring a child into this crazy world, you ask?

Because our team is dedicated to bringing you all the transport information you need, faster and more intuitively than anyone else.

Because when you launch Transit App, we not only give you all the info you need—we give it to you right on launch.

Because when you said pressing a button to open Transit App took too long, we made a widget that lets you check departure times, without even opening the app.

Now, it’s time to lend us a hand. Your hand, actually. Which is where you’ll be able to access Transit App for Apple Watch, and get nearby departure times without. Even. Opening. Your. Phone.

Lots of other cool things, too. If you're interested, you can check our Twitter page. And please — no gifts for this baby shower, folks. Your love is all we need.

(Also added: real-time information in St. Louis, Austin, Baltimore. Community Transit in Seattle, too).

(Leave us five stars if you want us to add the Hogwarts train.)

Customer Reviews

Downloaded this app. Sold my car.

I live downtown and everything I do is based in the metropolitan area. The city’s transit system is adequate, but not knowing if or when a bus will arrive is an obviously pain. I researched everything on iTunes and was willing to pay any price for a solid app that tracked bus routes in realtime. The Transit App was light-years ahead of everything else (to clarify, a light-year is 9 trillion kilometers). It was simply the best and was totally free (with no advertisements or freemium buy-ins). I still want to contribute funds to the developers to keep their awesomeness going. The user interface for Transit App is intuitive and the features are amazing. It is an app for real-world use. I have even been lobbying the city’s transit system to officially adopt the app and promote it to the public. I field tested the Transit App for weeks, and I was so impressed that I sold my car because of it in April 2014. It has been a year already and I have never missed my car one day. For anything I need to do outside the city, there is Uber - which is also included in the app options. And now, its coming to the Watch? Am I dreaming? This will be so great for times, like in the winter, when it is not convenient to grab my phone. Thank you Transit App Inc. for making a product that has improved the quality of my life.

Great App

I love using this app when in Baltimore to catch the train home or to DC. What’s great is that I can swipe down my notifications and look at a quick time table of nearby lines. What’s even greater is that once I get to DC the app flawlessly switches to show local metro times and even capital bike share stations! Definitely worth it!


The widget is good but it shows an arrival time that is always incorrect when the Notification Center is opened initially. Then the times update and become accurate. Minor issue but needs to be fixed.
