What’s New

Version 5.15.21

Aaaaand we’re back to our regular scheduled programming: after 27 days, our copywriter has returned from his butt-corroding bicycle trip across the United States. Ten states, 4189 miles, and 46 bags of Haribo gummy bears later, his feet are a crime scene and his neck is crispier than the bacon at McDonald’s.

Of course it wouldn’t be a warm welcome without balloons, cake, aloe vera, and a basket of fresh bug fixes for him to announce:

- Feral service alerts have been tamed, no more inconsistencies when you look up different stops or route directions
- Labels for bike lanes in the trip planner have been switched to “frog green” from “croc green” despite the crocodiles’ tears of protest
- Plenty of behind-the-scenes changes, soon yours to discover, just like the license plates of Ontario

Well, that’s it! Stay tuned for a big summer of feature announcements — and don’t forget to rate us five stars for outrunning the hungry dogs of Kentucky.

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.

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.

Pay Close Attention

This app is essential for my travel to and from college. I've noticed however that the time it tells you to leave is way too late every time, and I end up missing the bus by a minute or two. Even leaving earlier than the recommended departure, I will miss the bus. Not only that, but it has no way of alerting you when you've taken the wrong bus. It says "Unplanned Detour" which is really inconvenient for someone new to public transport who doesn't know the stops for other buses. You'll believe you're on the right bus and there IS a detour, maybe because the stops are correct up until a certain point when really the app just can't track you because you're obviously not on the route of the bus you were supposed to take. Please find a way to fix this. I don't know if you could make some sort of route recognition that would know if you've taken an actual detour or if you're simply on the wrong bus. On top of that, it gave me an estimated arrival at my destination, changed to a half hour later. All when the bus was the WRONG bus. Why on earth would there be an estimated arrival for that, if the bus is never getting there in the first place?
