What’s New

Version 5.15.7

Ah. The ides of December. When the buses in Canada get decked out in the grooviest winter tires. When those wild winter bikers shed the skintight lycra for balaclavas, ski masks, enormous lobster mittens…  proving once and for all what “hardcore” really means.

Back at Transit HQ, we’re managing the fleets despite the sleets, running over bugs with our studded-tire BIXI bikes. Who decided to call this “autumn”? Was it you, New Orleans?

- You can now dismiss our post-ride questionnaire where we ask you “how was your ride, out of five stars?” by swiping down
- Fixed issue with GO when we’d ask you “are you on the J or the F train?” when you were actually on a secret third train… we’re now better at asking which bus or train you’re on when there’s a lot of nearby overlapping transit lines (or the same line but with different branches)
- The developers hereby apologize to the designers for misnaming some of the 50 shades of grey in Transit’s colour bible (“you call that ‘elephant hide’? It’s obviously light pewter.”)
- Fixed issue where the little robot man who feeds real-time data into the app was skipping like a Green Day CD in your brother’s old Walkman
- Montreal snowbirds can now purchase 747 bus tickets from the airport to downtown, right in the app
- Other bug fixes as dry as these Decembers days are short

Don’t forget to rate us five stars. And if you find a bug? Send us an email ( or drop us a note on Google Plus… we hear it now has more users than Twitter?

PS: is that a new in-app icon I see? I wonder what it could all mean…

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.

Amazing app

I have been using transit for a couple years, and have found that a lot of the time it gives much better directions than google maps. I mean, one time google maps told me to walk all the way around a section after getting off the bus, whereas transit told me to not walk around that section, which made it faster. Plus, they pretty much give out royale for free, I mean, UTA just gave me royale even though I never logged in. I just had to be in utah in order to get it.

On top of all the amazing things, the update info is possibly the most interesting part about it. It genuinely feels like people love making this app. I mean, they literally make jokes and talk about barbieheimer, make ken puns, and even talk about taylor swift. They're all jokes, but still very funny. I always read the changelogs because of those points. I mean, who wouldn't? Major props to the person writing all of them. You are loved.

The only complaint I have is that it doesn't have a native ipad version. Sure the iphone app can run on ipad, but it is stuck in portrait mode, and when the ipad is in landscape mode, there are black bars on the sides. The biggest issue is that the keyboard uses the iphone keyboard stuck inside the bounds of the app, so it's very small. It would be very nice to be able to use the much larger and arguably much better ipad keyboard.

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.
