About this app

Use the Rocketman app so you can enjoy your ride while earning cash on the side with exclusive Rocketman Rewards.

The Rocketman app helps busy commuters stay ahead of their transit route with real-time public transit arrival times, transit crowding reports, and delay alerts. Eliminate the stress of your arrival and plan your route accordingly while accessing local transit systems, including TTC (Toronto Transit Commission), GO Transit, BC Transit and more Canada transit systems.

The in-app Rocketman Rewards program allows transit riders to participate in interactive polls while casually earning cash back to spend on things they want. Access weekly user polls with groundbreaking questions like whether honey garlic chicken wings are better than fried wings because riding transit can be fun and rewarding.

Download the Rocketman app and gain access to real-time transit alerts and transit arrival, plus:

View the nearest transit stops based on location

Rocketman does not collect or share any personal information or geolocation data. The Rocketman app identifies transit, streetcar, train and bus stops near you, shows vehicle arrival times, shares reports of crowded transit vehicles, and shares a feed of real-time service delay alerts. The Rocketman app recognizes your location only when you allow location access on your device through your device’s settings “While Using the App.” Your location, selected routes, and travel times are not collected or shared.

If you're looking for the most frustrating, unreliable, and innacurate transit app out there - this one's for you! In the time it takes me to load stop information, I can pretty much be at my destination. Doesn't matter what Internet I'm connected to (data, wifi, it's all the same) it just doesn't work, and restarting the app/my phone doesn't help either. Highly recommend staying away from this app!

Being forced to switch to this app from the regular Transit app since the city is discontinuing it, and I do not like it. I find the interface incredibly difficult to navigate and the "favourites" feature doesn't really make anything more convenient. The live tracking seems pretty accurate so far which is nice, but you still have to use Google for directions which hasn't always been accurate. The old app had its problems for sure, but overall Rocketman is not better or easier to use.

Ever since the update, a browser window pops up when opening the app with a link to download the app...which I already have! Please fix.
