6 GREAT THINGS ABOUT TRANSIT:

1) THE BEST REAL-TIME DATA
The app uses the best transit agency data sources like MTA Bus Time, MTA Train Time, NJ Transit MyBus, SF MUNI Next Bus, CTA Bus Tracker, WMATA Next Arrivals, SEPTA Real-Time and many more. We combine that data with our fancy ETA prediction engine so that you get the most accurate real-time info possible for all transit modes - including buses, subways, trains, streetcars, metros, ferries, ridehail and more. Prefer to travel on two wheels? With GPS, you can see live bikeshare and scooter locations right on the map.

2) TRAVEL OFFLINE
Bus schedules, stop locations, subway maps and even our trip planner are available offline.

3) POWERFUL TRIP PLANNING
See fast and easy trips combining buses, subways and trains – the app even suggests routes that combine multiple options in one trip like bus + bike or scooter + metro. You’ll find great trip plans that you never even considered! Don’t like to walk a lot or use a certain mode or transit agency? Personalize your travel in the settings.

4) GO: OUR STEP-BY-STEP NAVIGATOR*
Receive departure alarms to catch your bus or train, and get alerted when it’s time to get off or transfer. When using GO, you’ll also crowdsource more accurate info and real-time ETAs for other passengers– and rack up points and thank yous for being the most helpful rider on your line.

5) User Reports
See what other riders have to say! With millions of users contributing, you’ll get helpful info on crowding levels, on-time performance, the closest subway exits, and more.

6) Easy Payments
Pay your transit fare and buy bikeshare passes directly in the app in over 75 cities.

What’s New

Version 5.15.12

The forecast in Florida called for “falling iguanas” this month, as the sunshine state experienced a cold snap so cold it stunned the lizards in the trees. While our cold-blooded friends defrosted on the sidewalk, we waxed our cross-country skis, glided to the office, and got busy counting the number of snowed-in and snow-cleared bus stops in Montreal (see transitapp.com/snow for more info).

To keep the windchill at bay, our designer Béa knitted up some beautiful new in-app icons that will warm your heart… and feet. You can inspect her nimble-fingered needlework by navigating to the Royale section in the app settings. (Anyone can see her new app icons, but only our loyal subscribers can add them to their homescreen!)

Other than that? New year, new bug fixes:
- The illegibility wars between dark fonts and dark backgrounds (and light fonts and light backgrounds) that have vexed users of Dark Mode and other colourful in-app themes has reached a détente, thanks to our favourite in-app function, HighContrast.
- Planning a trip? We’ve made it easier to buy fares — even for trips that span different transit agencies! You’ll now see a neat “buy ticket” button, below the relevant leg of your trip, when you look up trip directions in the app.

Nothing else to report… time to go ice fishing.

Editors’ Choice

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.

I LOVE this app but just a suggestion

I really LOVE this app I use it ALL OVER the United States when I've traveled in/to Las Vegas, NV to Florida to NYC, I've recommend it to many of my friends throughout the States even in Hawaii.

I think it would be neat to "ADD" to the app a route of our own from "Loc-A to Loc-B" besides what's offered, to see at times which way may be more economical in timeframe. I know many many routes of traveling from using the (San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency) SFMTA - The Bay Area/Golden Gate, (Regional Transportation Authority) RTC/Duce - Sin City, (Regional Transit Authority of Tennessee) RTA - Music City, and (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) MTA - The Big Apple, etc. You get the point.

The way I go at times is much faster even if I have to transfer alot it doesn't bother me, but it never pops up. I have to calculate backwards & forwards, guesstimate and hope I get it right. In addition, sometimes just sometimes we should also be able to add delays or if the bus is ahead of schedule. Ex: If something happened on the road that's delaying the buses but really has nothing to do with mechanical issues or if a bus is running behind or ahead of schedule so that perhaps other people who are using the app may find alternate routes to their location(s) instead of looking like a slow loris perplexed waiting for a bus that may have or may not have pass by.

My GO-to transit app in Miami-Dade.

I been a fan since the days of its origins when the app was a necessity to track live down the busses. And although it was lucky matter to see a bus on live tracking since very few will be using it on the Go feature, the interface was more user friendly and the app didn’t freeze as much as the official one from the county. I never reviewed an app before and much less type this much but credit is well due on this one. Thank you to the entire team behind this app because the work you guys have put into it shows very well and make it worth a payable subscription.
The new ticketing feature makes the cherry at top. I struggled with digital passes thru the official county app and all because I forgot to unlock my card one time for the charge and now it seems like my card is banned from direct onboard usage or even on the app to buy passes or credits. So transit now saves my life by not only allowing one way passes purchase that can be used later on another time but also digitalizing passes and takes any card on my apple wallet. Paying the subscription really makes it better app than the official one by interface and ease to get the info needed and to the destination!
Congratulations guys for your great work, it is highly appreciated and valued.
