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

Ok, this is an update. I originally hated this app because of trouble getting the features it said was included. That was finally done. Do I use the app now? No. Why? Because it's much easier to use Google maps. Google maps sometimes does not give all options. At those times I will compare it to this app. I noticed this app is going to show delays and canceled trips. That could be a game changer. We will see. I

I find the app can be finicky at times, but it has definitely been a major help in my commuting, the bus times in my experience have been kinda accurate, though I find the indicator showing the location of the bus is way more accurate. A suggestion I could give would be to make it more user friendly (less jittery, more navigable), as well as making sure the times are shown more accurately. 8.7/10

Wow. This app is hands down one of the best apps I've used. Period. This app gives you highly accurate departure times, eta's, and lines near you based on location. It also shows where the bus/train is (when available) so you can determine how far away it is. Not only that but the interface is easy and straightforward to use. Very snappy and modern. Would HIGHLY recommend for transit use.
