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

This app works perfectly fine. It does what it's supposed to do & is great at giving you accurate times for everything. The reason I gave it only 3 stars instead 5 is because you have to pay a subscription to get detailed info from every route in the area, because if you don't, you can only get that info for 4 of them. I understand that the developers need to make money to keep the app going but I feel like that's so much of a basic need that putting it behind a paywall seems greedy.

This app is way too busy. It does not allow pinning all needed bus lines. If a line is for example 51 and 51A (2 completely different routes with same starting point) you can only pin it as 51, then it only shows the schedule when you get close the other one. Sometimes it just freezes on loading. Overall it is not very user friendly. My transit system is forcing us to use this for ticket purchases and the integration of Ezfare is an even scarier joke. I am hoping my system just drops this.

This app is incredibly helpful to me and the bus is ALWAYS there within two-three minutes of the scheduled pick-up time. The busses are always clean and most generally the drivers are friendly. Although I personally don't use Lyft, I like that there's an option to request a ride through them. The drivers go above and beyond when it comes to helping people; I recently started using the MooVer busses and I'm still getting used to the different bus routes and the drivers are always happy to help

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
