METRO is the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, serving the Greater Houston, Texas region with safe, clean, reliable, accessible and friendly public transportation services.
The official METRO TRIP app is a personalized navigation tool that allows you to quickly and easily manage your trip on local bus or METRORail. It requires a cellular network or wireless connection.
By allowing the app to access your location, you’ll see:
• Nearby local bus and METRORail routes
• Actual arrival times for nearby buses
• Scheduled arrival time for nearby METRORail
The app also allows you to plan your trip so you can get step by step directions for how to go (using local bus or METRORail), how long it’s expected to take, and a link to the METRO Q Ticketing app where you can purchase a ticket to ride with a credit card, PayPal, Google Pay or Apple Pay.
As part of your trip planning, you can take advantage of the app’s unique My Stop Technology, a personal trip guide that uses Bluetooth to link your app to thousands of beacons in the METRO service area. They allow the app to deliver notifications or pulse vibrations when you’re approaching your:
• Starting a bus stop or rail platform
• Transfer point (if applicable)
• Destination bus stop or rail platform
Just plan your trip and watch or listen to your phone to monitor progress.
• Apple iPhones running iOS 11 and above.

There’s two different times; “Live” and “Scheduled” .Half of the times, the Live time becomes scheduled, and before you know it, bus doesn’t pass and you’re already waiting at your stop for no reason....
For the most part, this app is accurate.
It shows where the busses are located at exactly (the green busses) are the ones you want to search for to know when the next one will be approaching your bus stop. Sometimes, there are delays but it should still be accurate and not far off. I like this app is VERY convenient to get around especially if you are on a time bind. It will tell you specifically when the next bus is coming even if a delay happens. Y’all should get this app if you guys ride the Metro. Super convenient honestly. It shows you the routes the bus number is taking and the path and all the stops etc. If you are lost this is another way to quickly find where you are. It’s like a GPS as well as a bus scheduler put into 1.
Helpful but could use some updates
I found this app very helpful. It allowed me to get to school. There were a couple of times within the 3yrs that used it when buses were running late or wouldn’t show up at all, so I wish Metro could keep this app updated with that info. Other than that i thought it was pretty easy to use and helpful.
