About this app

Transit is your real-time city travel companion. It works in 300+ cities, for buses, trains, Ubers, Lyfts, and everything in between. Get precise real-time predictions for public transit, the smartest & fastest trip plans, and a step-by-step navigator when you’re going to unfamiliar destinations (or to wake you up from a mid-trip nap™). Our app gives you all the info you need, in a clear, bold interface so you don’t get lost or stuck at the stop.

Whether you’re new to a city… or a subway expert who takes NYC’s MTA / LA Metro / WMATA / MBTA / BART / CTA / SEPTA every day (or the 200+ other systems we support) this is the award-winning app you need.

*Turn on mobile data to get real-time information
**No data? Don’t worry: our trip planner works offline, using schedules

Very inaccurate information provided. This is a mediocre app developed by mediocre IT personnel who are more concerned about finishing their task than ensuring that it does what it's supposed to do. So many sub menus, yet it doesn't use the GPS on each bus in order to provide precise and punctual information. I have roasted myself under the summer heat above 100F for over an hour waiting for a bus that's supposed to come in 20 minutes and other irregularities. Not worth the "bells and whistles".

I added my payment info to unlock bikes in Chattanooga but purchasing the pass failed every time I tried. There was no way to change payment method once I'd entered it (I followed the instructions on the website but the option to use another payment wasn't offered). I had to delete my account and recreate it with a different card. It shouldn't be this hard. The app is great otherwise. Nice UI, syncs with dark mode, easy to find info.

Been using this app for 40 days now. It has helped a few times but also has been the cause of many frustrations. GPS loses signal, tracking is slower the Google maps & doesn't always display the right information. The worst part however, is the fact that it will lead me to a bus stop, crash in the background and lose track of that stop completely just to tell me to walk to another bus stop even if its across the street only to have the bus it originally lead me to pass me while switching stops.

What's new

Happy 10th birthday to Transit!

We’re entering the 2nd decade of Transit the best way we know how… with bug fixes.

- Can’t tell the difference between “scheduled departure” vs. “real-time departure”? Or an “officially cancelled trip” vs. a “most-likely cancelled trip”?
- Hallelujah! We’ve added a little explainer.

- Hello free Royale for: BUSIT + Orbus (New Zealand) and Ben Franklin Transit (Washington state)

Now make a wish & rate us 5 stars to blow out half of our birthday candles
