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.

10 GREAT THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH TRANSIT:
1) See real-time arrivals for nearby buses and trains instantly upon launch.
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) Plan trips, view transit schedules and get route itineraries—even when you’re offline!
8) Locate bikeshare stations, see the number of bikes available, pay for passes, and unlock bikes (in select cities).
9) Check ETA (and price) for nearby Uber, Lyft and VIA rides, and book in two taps.
10) Easily plan and pay for a trip combining Uber, Lyft, or VIA with transit. We call it Transit+

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.

Late or non existent buses

I love this app. I use it every time I take public transport. However, I would only give it 4.75 stars if I could. The only issue I have is when I open the app and, for example, it says my bus is about 8 minutes away from my location and then suddenly it’s 30 minutes away without explanation. Is the bus late? I’m not sure. I always assume the time more as an estimate, but that’s quite a large jump. Once, I made it to the stop with the app telling me that it was 3 minutes away but changed to 15, then 30, then 10. It kind of just stayed at 10 for over a hour an a half and no bus ever showed up. Not even the driver who finally arrived knew why there were four absent routes prior to theirs, perhaps no drivers, but it would be cool if there was some kind of way to know if a bus is late. HOWEVER, I still love this app and it’s the only app I use for public transport. My favorite thing, besides how simple it is to navigate, is that I was able to use it while visiting my brother in Hawaii (I live in Washington) and it had all the routes and maps available so I could make my own way around Oahu. I always recommend this app to people who are standing looking at the time sheets at the bus stops.

Developer Response ,

Hi there👋 Thanks a lot for your feedback! We understand how frustrating it is to have the wrong information about your bus! Unfortunately, since we're a third-party app based in Montreal, Canada we're getting all the data we display in the app from the transportation agencies and we're not involved in the operations of the buses. We'd suggest getting in touch with your local transportation agency for more details on why the buses are late or not showing up at all. You can always contact us at info@transitapp.com for any question regarding the app. Thank you!

Houston area

I mainly take the metro to get to and from the University of Houston. Downloaded this app around a year ago or two, its pretty great at showing me the nearest line to where I’m trying to leave from. It’s also pretty great letting you know if you’ll have to take a second bus and showing the walking distance to actually get to your destination. It even shows you the estimated time it would take if you took an Uber or Lyft. As a student I wanna make sure to arrive to my classes on time, so it’s great being able to see my options. Honestly much better than just looking at google maps imo. I’m not giving it a full 5 starts just because sometimes the bus will arrive either earlier or later then the time it gives you but that’s understandable it’s not always going to be 100% accurate. I get that same issue even when I use the cities official metro text service, where it sends the time schedule for the bus, like I said not going to ever be 100% because there’s a lot of other factors one needs to take into account like traffic etc. overall I would recommend this app to anyone not familiar with their local metro service like if your knew to the city or just taking the metro for the first time, it comes in handy if you want to make sure you’re getting on the right bus.
