Now you only need 1 public transport app, wherever you go!

• Over 1,000 cities, 1 app
Gone are the days of needing a different public transport app for every city you visit. Embark works in in over 75 countries!

• Live, real-time transit information
Tap on any stop or station to see the services arriving next, including live times - so you know when that next bus, train, ferry or tram is actually arriving instead of just when it's supposed to.

• Upcoming Stop Alerts
Now you can get notified when you're approaching your stop, even if you don't have Embark open - just tap the bell icon the next time you plan a journey and we'll let you know when it's time to get off.

• One-tap directions to your favourite places
Add and save your favourite destinations, so you can quickly get step-by-step directions to them, from wherever you are.

• Uber integration
Search for a destination or tap on one of your favourites to see Uber as an option beneath public transport ones - we give you a fare estimate as well. Just tap to book!

• Live times on your Apple Watch
Now all you need to do is glance at your wrist to see when your next bus, train, tram or ferry is arriving!

• Tailored content to keep you entertained
Time will fly while on your trip. Embark serves up a feed of popular content in a personalised feed that you can save or share.

• Better information, stuff that matters
Type in a destination and Embark will show you the best options to get there, with important details like travel costs, carbon emissions and the calories you'll burn.

• Next-gen interaction with screens
Like magic, you'll very soon be able to interact with screens at stops and stations, just by being near them. Vote on that poll, download that trailer, or like that jacket for later!

• More value just for you, near you
Embark understands your frequented routes, so keep an eye on the map for freebies and other offers at places you love!

Get on board!

Great all in one transport app

Absolutely fantastic, serves all my needs and more, no bugs to report thus far. Have used daily for nearly 2 years and always reliable and informative

Pete, on the buses. ,


On the positive side, this app is so easy to use and works well with speech software on the phone for me as I am vision impaired. On the downside, when standing in an area with many bus stop’s, sometimes embarks real-time information will be for the wrong stop. This can be somewhat confusing and annoying. Overall, I recommend this app and have given it 3 stars.
