What’s New

Version 5.9.1

For years and years your home screen has looked the same. Rows and rows of little apps. Sometimes you’d rearrange them. Sometimes you’d feel a little frisky, and put those icons in folders, you little minx! But the result was always the same. Squares squares squares. It was a tyranny of shapes. A monotonous monopoly of the 90-degree rhombus. You thought it would be like this forever. Didn’t you.

Introducing: rectangles.

From the same team that brought you “Transit, the app” comes the hotly-anticipated sequel “Transit, the WIDGET”. Spruce up your home screen fustiness with a big bodacious splash of green! Our new widget lets you get travel times to your favourite locations — like Home and Work and School and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — right on your home screen.

To install the widget: first make sure you’re updated to iOS 14. Long press an empty space on your home screen, until your app icons be shakin’. Tap “+” on the top corner. You’ll now see the glorious Transit widget. Pick the small square (with travel times to your destination via public transit OR bike OR another mode) or swipe to the rectangle version (with travel times for all ze modes).

Rinse and repeat: you want widgets for all your favourite locations? Turn your home screen into a Transit shrine. It’s 2020, friend. Time to live your best life.

Right. One more thing. You may notice something very new and very special when you open the app. At the moment, it’s only available in a couple of places. Limiting the release, we can make sure it’s capital-p perfect when it launches in your city, and then… Everywhere.

Editors' Notes

Lots of apps can offer driving directions—but what if you’re not driving at all? That’s where Transit comes in. The travel planning app shows you how to get from point A to point B via train, bus, rideshare—and now even bikeshare and scooter. The app will seek out your best route, offer a few alternate options, and let you know how long you can expect to be in transit.

Nice

So yeah maybe sometimes I’ll have minor issues with the app showing slightly incorrect bus times but eh I can live with that. But the main reason I give this app 5 stars is because of the incredibly amusing update information 😂 it makes me laugh and I hope it doesn’t ever stop being so wonderfully entertaining.

No wiggle room

The only complaint is that the app won’t show you earlier leaving times if you have a second leg of the journey. E.g bus 1 leaves every 15mins, but bus 2 every hour. The app will only show me the bus 1 closest to bus 2, with only 2 minutes room for error. Even if I make my leaving time 30mins earlier. After perpetually missing my bus 2 and having to wait an additional hour, I have learned to search the routes separately.
