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

Version 4.4.4

It’s a bird it’s a plane nope wait actually sorry folks our mistake it was DEFINITELY a bird.

BIRD. Because when you’re in the mobility business, sometimes you gotta ruffle feathers. Give a warm “peep peep” to Transit’s newest mode: shared electric scooters. You find the scooter. You push the scooter. You pull the scooter throttle, and park it wherever (but please not in the middle of sidewalks or trees). Then someone else does the same. Currently available in SF, San Diego, LA, and DC from the following operators: Bird, Spin, and Waybots. Hey LimeBike….. check gmail ;)

Save your taps: rather than juggling four different apps, trying to find the closest scooter, like you are some sort of rogue private-eye who’s come down with a case of microtransit mania, just check our MAP or our TRIP PLANNER to find a DELECTABLE ZIPPY FRIEND. Ok sorry for the all caps we’re just really, really excited.

Rate us five stars because we capitalized on this opportunity.

An essential app for metropolitan areas!

Steven Aziz

The Transit app is one of the BEST apps in the app store, and I would know! I'm a programmer and I like to experiment with software and so I've tested out many other transit apps and I still have them on my iPhone but I just keep coming back to this one! I have really, really, REALLY high standards and this app fulfills ALL of them! I literally can't rave enough about this app! Everyone should get it! It is beautiful. It is easy to use. It is well integrated and optimized. It is accurate all the time. It is super smart and helpful. It is even well updated! I don't usually write reviews but this is one of MY FAVORITE aps on my phone so I just had to give the team credit. Heck, it's free! I just can't rave enough about the Transit app team, so I'm going to stop. However, before I do, I'm just going to say that I HIGHLY recommend this app and I have mad respect for the team behind it. Fantastic job!

Developer Response

WOW, thanks for the kind words Steven!! So glad to hear you like the app, it means the world to us. We're grateful for your support, and don't hesitate if we can help with anything!

Outstanding app here for East Lansing Michigan State University CATA users

MrHudson

I am impressed with how well this app tracks my location and figures out what bus stop is nearby. The information about the route, route direction and next time is very helpful. Love the ability to get updates about service changes and other details. I have used many transit applications and have seen none that are simpler to use. As a sidenote blind users Will find complete compatibility with the voiceover screen reader. Excellent work on making this application accessible thank you!

Kept missing my train :(

pigrabbit87

Two main problems:
1. The time that it says the train is going to be here kept jumping between two different number. I’ll open the app it says 7 minutes and 2 minutes after I leave the house it says 25 or something
2. I miss my train 80% of the time because it tells me the wrong time. I learned the first couple times so I left early, but still many time I’ll see the leave in front of my eyes when the app still says 5 minutes away. I’m writing from the train station waiting another half an hour for the next train :(((

Developer Response

:( I'm sorry that you keep missing your train!! That sounds super frustrating. Have you noticed whether there are two little waves next to the times? This indicates that the times are in real-time, which could explain why they are changing. If you'd like us to take a closer look, feel free to send us an email through the About section of the app!
