What's New

Version 4.5

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 ;)

Please fix!!


This app was great when I first downloaded.. I use this app every day and am upset to see that the bus won’t show as being tracked half of the time now and unreliable bus times.. have missed buses that I was advised wouldn’t be showing up for another 5-10 mins and the app just says “looks like this bus never came” very frustrating as I had learnt to rely on this app rather than physical bus time tables so has caused me to be late to work etc in these instances

Developer Response

Hi there, that does sound really frustrating! What city are you in? If you can give us a few details about which buses aren't being tracked, we can take a look. You can update your review or send us an email through the app (tap the gear icon, Transit logo, then "Contact Us".
