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

Edit: Original review was from 2019...happy to say that the app is still working as it should for me. Royale makes it better! 2 things that's necessary though; 1) Holiday schedules! For my bus system, the busses run on a weekend schedule during the holidays. A workaround is simply setting the date of departure to Saturday but it should be able to streamline into the live data. 2) No matter what I do, the Instant ETA widgets don't keep their settings, or load. The Nearby widget works though

Seems like the bus times are usually off anywhere from 3-10 minutes usually. And you don't get updates on delayed service. And it doesn't keep up to date on scheduled times for departure and arrival time. Also it's hard to use the Go feature because it doesn't really offer you choices for where you are going and preferred routes. It needs improvement for picking routes.

Very nice. It would be nice to be able to add a transit card and or connect to an account where you can use this transit app as the bus pass. It is pretty easy to use, but has a small learning curve to it. It be nice to be able to see entire bus route schedule for the week, or set alarms or schedule and pin certain certain stops in my specific days, lime reoccurring time and route that is used. Over all very nice.

What's new

Peak foliage. Manic squirrels. The annual rite of slapping together the lowest-effort Halloween costume in an hour or less. (You spent months on your outfit? We put mascara on our nose and called ourself a “cat”. Meow! Time flies when you’re chasing bugs.)

In this update:

- Hello free Royale for Hele-On (Hawaii), Huron Shores Area Transit (Ontario), and PVTA (Massachusetts)
- New (belated) birthday-themed app icon and launch screen
- Other things you won’t notice now but maybe you will later.
