What's New in Version 4.2.8

Just when you thought there was no room for improvement. We went and turned it up to 11.

Yeah. iOS 11.

Our engineers have been spawn-killing a bunch of iOS 11 bugs before the update goes live: say goodbye to that weird map alignment bug—before you even had time to say hello. Or the other one that made the map go grey if you scrolled too much. (Sorry, “Touch of Grey”, this scalp stays green whether you like it or not.)

In more iOS 11 map news: highways go buh-byeway in this version of Transit. Which means less wide yellow roads, less highway shields, more room for our sexy transit maps. (Somebody send us a pick axe. We’ll pluck out those highways for real.)

What else? It’s now easier to buy bikesharing passes. Forms are easier to fill—your keyboard will suggest stuff like “first name” and “phone number” so you can get a bike faster. Content yourselves with this minor improvement as we plot out much bigger ones in an update to come.

PS: if you have a second, rate us five stars! We need 1000 to get the new iPhone.

Pulsing blue status bar during trips

On the previous update, you guys seemed to have found a way with iOS 11 to get rid of that annoying blue pulsing status bar that said “transit is using your location”. On the next update, the pulsing bar was back ...

Also, I really wish the app displayed more possible routes more frequently. There’s a multi-hop route that I take in Seattle that only appears in Transit occasionally even though you can take it at any time. Please show all possible routes and have an option for “prefer the least time on the bus and the most walking”.

Timing is Key

My life revolves around timing. If I pedal hard enough on my rideshare bike I can make that bus which means I can make my train. So you can see how this app having at least my Chicago Divvy membership loaded and those CTA times on lock can be quite helpful. This app functions beautifully, though sometimes in the city the location tracking gets a little wonky. Looking forward to watching this app keep up their steady stream of improvements.

Significant Updates

Much easier to use.

And it appears to show the current bus position, location of bus stops, and expected time of arrival. This will make it more likely I will take the bus instead of the car when I head downtown. On top of that, it shows the bus route on a street map ... albeit a street map that shows lakes no lake names.

And WOW, downtime to the Dayton Int'l airport in 29 minutes. I didn't realize that. Thanks!!!!!
