What’s New

Version 18.3.0

Hey - We've got some great new bug fixes for you!

General UI Improvements:

* Stop persisting the Info tab as a place to which you can reopen the app. You really don't need to come here on a regular basis, so why show it to you if you're just coming back into the app? It makes no sense.
* Show more Recent Stops Quick Actions - The Today widget now appears when you force touch the app's icon, which means that including an option to view your bookmarks seems redundant.
* Keep loading stop departures until we find one - We'll keep loading depatures on your stop until we find one, which means less tapping and more transit riding.
* Prevent your phone from going to sleep when you have the Stop Controller visible - Your screen will no longer dim or turn off when you're looking at a stop.
* View service alerts directly on the stop, instead of having to tap through to see them.

VoiceOver Improvements:

* Improves the accessibility label for the current temperature on the map
* Make it possible to open stops on the map when VoiceOver is running
* Adds a special 'nearby stops' button to the map when in voiceover mode

This is not real time tracking

The app said the bus was 3 stops away when it was at my stop. My location services were on. The entire ride to work, the app was inaccurate by multiple stops. This is nice for a general idea, but it's tracking algorithm is clearly not accurate when it comes to how long busses take to get from one stop to the next/can't account for when busses don't stop.

Fairly disappointing considering the app boasts real time tracking, which I took to mean their is a gps in the bus tracking it. This is not real time tracking. It's "within 5 minutes tracking". Not good enough for commuting to work and minimizing time at a bus stop.

Puts peace of mind into public transit commuting

Its not often I go out of my way to leave a review but this app warrants it. As a relatively new public transit commuter, its easy to get confused about which bus and when and all that. “Am i late? Did i miss my bus or is it just running late?” Etc. this app takes away the guesswork and allows you to feel confident while commuting on the public transit. Thank you to the developers for making this intuitive, incredibly helpful app for us commuters.

Best app for Seattle transit

I’m an international student living in Seattle and this is one of those must have apps if you are using the city transit system while being in the city. It helps me to get ready for classes and and when to wait for which buses right after classes as well. I would like to see Siri shortcut integration as it’s competitors are doing so. This would be a nice feature to have.
