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 4.3.4
Two truths and a lie, Transit edition:
1. We got rid of a bug where our British GPS robot “Daniel” started speaking random garbage in your ear.
2. We got rid of a bug where departures were disappearing from our schedule view like a David Blaine trick gone horribly wrong.
3. New York bagels are better than Montreal bagels.
Spot the lie? Tweet your best guess to @transitapp. And don’t forget to rate us five stars—because while our release notes may only be 66.66666% true, when it comes to transit times, we’re much, much better.
Easy navigation in large Urban areas
The transit app has bailed me out constantly in large urban cities. I don’t really have to think about how to get home from wherever I am bc Transit will always provide me the best route (be it car, foot, bike, or public transport). It is GPS heavy and sometimes (though rarely) doesn’t account for delays. Overall though, I use this as often as any Maps application within large cities.
I also love for the update notes. Please never muzzle that man/woman. They are great!
Not Always Accurate
The app doesn’t always show the correct time when the bus is due to arrive. I have missed buses or have stood waiting more than 20, 30 minutes waiting for a bus that shows is due in minutes on the app. Not very reliable!
Removed Apple Watch App
A recent update removed the Apple Watch app. Makes it useless!
