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.

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.

Used to be more accurate

Robiedo

5/5/18 update:
First, thanks to the developer for responding to my original review. I’m not sure what good screen shots would do, but here’s a specific example from last week Monday, morning: I got to the bus stop and checked your app for the arrival of the next bus. It said 19 minutes and that the last bus had gone through four minutes earlier. Instead if waiting such a long time, I opted to jump in a shared bike that happened to be parked nearby. No sooner than I’d pedaled all of a mile (about five minutes later) and, whoosh, the bus goes flying by. All of relevant buses appearing in the schedule were displaying with the GPS tracking indicator, but none of the times was accurate. Maybe you could query Valley Transit about their useless signalling.
______________

I have relied upon this app in the Phoenix metro area for going on two years and consider it an essential part of my commute and even incidental use of public transit. However, it seems that recently it’s less accurate, even for buses that are supposedly being tracked with GPS. I’ll keep using it, because I really like its user interface and features, but I’m hoping, a lot, that the accuracy of arrival times improves—soon.

Developer Response

Hi there, thanks for your support over the years! I'm sorry to hear that Transit has been getting less accurate for you recently. Generally speaking, the real-time arrivals we show in the app come directly from Valley Metro, but if you ever notice that the times or bus locations we show don't match up with official agency information (or any other source), please take a few screenshots and send them our way so we can take a closer look! Thank you.

Best transit app out there!

Transit recently partnered with Baltimore and MTA to compile all their data and utilize what Transit was already doing great! It’s been awesome. It has integrated the bikeshare locations seamlessly. Also when I requested the water taxi lines and the new bird scooters which are dock less they also now show up live! It’s great to only have to open 1 app to see all the options.

Only a couple of things to continue the growth of the app in this area would be to make sure the background map is up to date. There are several new roads, bike lanes in the area that are not showing up yet and affect routes. Also, the inclusion of Lyft and car shares like Zipcar and Maven would be nice to compare with Uber. The inclusion of Amtrak location and transfers would also provide more information with the regional rail. Finally, showing the water taxi locations as you zoom in the map to see where the stops are would make it more clear as well. Thanks and look forward to continue use and growth of the app!

Truly one of the BEST apps out there

Now as a tech savvy enthusiast, I always aim to test out dozens of apps just to know what works and what just simply doesn’t work. For a while, transit slowly but surely growing and over the past 4-5 years, as a New Yorker, I can confidently and how heartedly say that this app is truly one of the best apps out there!

-Subway countdown clocks? Pffft, who needs them? TRANSIT has been RIGHT for the arrival of trains for the past 2-3 years now (mark my words, and I’m very avid on time frames).
-When there’s incidents affecting your line, guarantee you won’t hear it on the news, but you’ll definitely get an alert with Transit, whether you’re in the app or not.
-If you’re not sure how to find a certain subway stop, TRANSIT slays at showing you markers where you are exactly located and when to leave in order to catch that train you just aren’t quite sure is still running or not (even if it’s every 20 min on the weekends late at night)

2 things: I would LOVE to see an integration for Juno, VIA, and ARRO/ CURB apps as well, it would truly make this app even more unique and stellar.

Also, there’s an amazing app called iTransNYC and I would LOVE if Transit integrated their app and notification styles with them. Before Transit, iTransNYC was my go to app. Would be really great if a great app got picked up by an even greater app.

Transit is already slaying other NYC subway applications. Why look any further?

:-)
