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

When I 1st downloaded this app it worked pretty well without many bugs or glitches to speak of at all; and THAT was during the new trial runs and I was told there would be several bugs to work through. I'm having more difficulty with the app NOW, several months later, than I did THEN! The GPS Signal is CONSTANTLY very weak on the bus which makes it extremely difficult to determine how much time you have before it arrives. Also, the Go function doesn't work properly anymore.

Frustratingly inconsistent at times. I use it purely to buy two tickets nearly every day. From x station to y station--and vice versa. However, it doesn't always give me the option to. I've been using the same device, on the same network, for the same stops, and the app still struggles with allowing me to buy tickets. I have emailed them before, and got a temporary fix that did not last. The issues persist.

Hey there! If you're still running into an issue, please write us back so we can investigate more. To send us an email from inside the app: open the app, tap Settings (gear icon), then tap the Transit logo (on the right of the 3 icons), then Email Us. We're so sorry for any issue.

Confusing at first. Works a little better after getting used to it. The menus are not easy to navigate. Say I need to jump to the directions from my ticket screen then back. It's tough. I got stuck riding the bus for 10 minutes before I could pull up my ticket to show the driver. Be sure you buy the right ticket the first time around. You have to activate and wait for it to expire before you can buy another. Love the stop previews on the bus and the prompts when to get off. I'm having fun riding

Hi there, thank you for your feedback! We'd like to know a little bit more about your experience with our app if you could share more details at This will help us improve the app! You may also want to check out our Help Center for more information:

What's new

In this update we’ve redesigned our end of ride prompt, which…

1. asks you to rate your trip on a five-star scale, and
2. shows you how many riders you’ve helped, at the end of every GO trip, and
3. tells you how long you were GOing (in time + km)

You’ll see that we’ve slapped a new coat of paint on that bad boy, and added some gratuitous gyroscope physics — test it out. Spin your phone in the air like a pepperoni pizza. What could go wrong.

Rate us 5 stars for 500 more days of summer.
