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 in Version 4.2.9
There was this thing we forgot to do and now we did it and now things that didn’t work before, do.
Great and used everyday
This is a wonderful app (better then Google Mpas, Apple Maps, and a few others I have tried) if supported in your area.
First, the notification screen setup is a must. Based on your location, you can save your “favorite” places to pick up any mass transit and it will tell you as real time as possible the arrival times. Use this almost everyday to travel to work. If you are in a known area, it will tell you the near by transit lines which is super helpful in trying to figure out “do I have enough time”.
Second, the directions part will let you know what is the travel time via almost any form of transit you choose. Walking, walking & transit, transit only with minimized walking, biking, and car/uber. If you are in a hurry, it really helps provide you a snapshot of the “best way” to get there for you.
Finally, it is almost always accurate. Worst case situation is you arrive 2 to 3 minutes early which is good when trying to catch a line.
This app is easy to use and I use it everyday. Hope they keep up the good work!
When I make a plan
When I make a plan, I would like to see it. It seems this app let’s you make a plan then you can set an alarm for it, but if you want to see the route you just planned, too bad. Make the plan again. If there is a way to do this, then it needs to be more obvious.
Also, the app tells me to get on one bus, ride it in the transfer station for one minute and get on another bus. What? Someone not familiar with the area could get in trouble if the did not understand that is bogus information.
Tracking NEVER works!
Tracking NEVER works and without it this is just a bus schedule app. This app is supposed provide MORE THAN JUST schedule readings . You know for people like me who live in Pittsburgh which has the most horrible bus service IN THE COUNTRY constantly making us late !
Without tracking this app is useless - uninstall
Was not sure how to reply ..
I've had issues "and not just once in a while " on the 88,91,p1 and 86 .. for instance it "says" its 3 minutes away .. but when you look it is on the other side of the route .. like right now it "says " it's tracking and it has been "saying " the 88 should be here so I went to the stop .. 20 minutes later it STILL says 3 minutes and it STILL cannot produce a location ... so what is it reporting ? Obviously it's not it just says that..
now because of this app I'm standing in the rain with no real info on this bus .. same thing happend with the same route this morning around 6 am
