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.

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.

Somethings never go out of style. Leather jackets. Ostriches. Champagne. Chapstick.
Frequencies in the trip planner? They’re one of those somethings. Being able to quickly tell in the trip planner: oh this bus+train trip is possible every 6 minutes. That train+train trip works every 10 minutes… We used to show you “Every X” minutes you could make a trip in the trip planner…. but now it’s back. Forever in style.
Even better? We include similar trips in those “Every X” estimates. You can tap the “Every X Minutes” tab to find which trip line will line up with when you wanna travel.
Next up? Another X… because we apparently can’t stop talking about our X’s:
On the search bar on the homescreen, you’ll now see a little arrow. Did you pan away from your current location on the map? Just tap the arrow to re-center the map, back to your location. (The “arrow” used to be an “X”, but that was hella ambiguous.) Now, the “find yourself” button isn’t ambiguous. Finding yourself, as a fulfilled human being? Ambiguous as ever!
Lastly: search history. Did you and Kumar take the late bus to White Castle? Don’t feel ashamed. (We’ve been there too.) But if you want to squash the memory of your sodium-sprinkled potato sticks, just swipe to make any location searches go “bye-bye”.
All that, plus some polish, tinkerings, and bug fixes. What would a release note be without asking for five stars? It’s Christmas time. So turn that “ho-ho” review into a “ho-ho-ho-ho-ho.”
Ratings and Reviews
Need a little improvement
I should have given more stars if it wasn’t because the app is starting giving me innacurate time when the bus is approaching at my bus stop, for instance if the app is telling me that the bus is getting in 8 minutes then it changes back to 1 minute or the other way around; I also forgot to mention that everytime I open the app it takes a while to give me the information, it freezes up right on the map interface when it searches for its location, but the app still has its potential, it just need a little bit of fixing.
Fed up. mar63
I’m so fed up with 751, 755, 756, these buses don’t come when they are suppose to, I usually have 2 or 3 hours for a stupid 751 because they don’t have drivers. And when their are drivers they are nasty, speeding, or don’t stop. Something has to be done about these buses drivers. Someone else take the company over or something. In my eyes the company is a complete FAILURE!!!
