The weather forecast for today:
- rain, maybe.
- sun, possibly.
- crowdsourcing, definitely.
Bonjour. Hi. Ciao. Qué pasa? Whatever your mother tongue, whatever city you live in: if it’s supported in Transit, then crowdsourcing is LIVE!
For nineteen months the Transit team has been experimenting with Crowdsourced Real-Time Transit Vehicle Location Data. (Say that five times fast and we’ll give you a medal.)
We launched it in certain markets. Watched it grow from a baby, into a man. We inoculated him from the bugs of his childhood, taught him to be better behaved, and now he’s ready to take on the world.
Starting today, in all 175 of our supported cities, you can watch your vehicle approach—in actual, second-by-second real-time—on the map, whenever someone on that vehicle is using GO. GO, as our OGs know, is Transit’s step-by-step navigator, telling you exactly when to leave to catch your ride, when to disembark, plus on-the-fly trip plans and transfers (should something go wrong.)
Our GO feature has a wonderful byproduct: crowdsourced vehicle locations (aka CrVeLoGOs, aka never let us coin an acronym again). Those vehicle locations are now on the map, updated every second. Every time you press GO, riders down the line get to watch the best show on earth™.
Even better? We cracked some code to refresh your agency's real-time faster, too! Those real-time locations should update a few seconds faster now. If your agency updates its feed really fast, you’ll notice. If your agency doesn’t update its feed as fast? Create it yourself by tapping GO. We’ll show you how many people you’re helping, and how you rank against GO riders on your line. Who’s the fairest rider of them all? Now you don’t have to ask the mirror on the wall.
Rate us 7 stars so we can give one to each of Snow White’s dwarfs. (If you can’t give us 7, just 5 is fine ;)

Ratings and Reviews
Great app - needs some fixes though
I personally find Transit a great app to use, it’s pretty light on data and the real time tracking helps a lot. I do, however, find some glitches or bugs with the actual tracking. When you’re going on a bus ride the app alerts you the stop is incoming yet there are around 3 stops left before your one comes. Also the transition from bus to walking also isn’t as smooth and at times the map isn’t clear on where you need to go. I’d also like a feature where it shows you all the different routes you can take, as some come earlier than the one the app tells you to take yet can still be taken. Apart from that, I highly enjoy using Transit.
Had to change my rating
I initially gave Transit 5 stars but after using it solidly for the past 5 weeks I unfortunately had to change my rating to 3. The greatest strength for Transit is its mobile user experience; it has the most easily understood user interface of public transport apps. It’s let down is its backend: it gives bad routing for walking/buses and transfers between bus/trains. It also has missing bus data (I have reported) which its peers do have. I hope Transit invests in improvement to its backend because that’s the let down in an otherwise well designed mobile app.
Hi there, thanks for taking the time to share your comments! Yes - we are working hard on improving our backend, especially for routing. If you haven't already reported these issues, please do send any examples of bad routing or other errors to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can know what to fix. Thanks for your support and kind words about the user experience!
