1) The best real-time data.
The app uses the best transit agency data sources like MTA Bus Time, MTA Train Time, NJ Transit MyBus, SF MUNI Next Bus, CTA Bus Tracker, WMATA Next Arrivals, SEPTA Real-Time and many more. We combine that data with our fancy ETA prediction engine so that you get the most accurate real-time info possible for all transit modes - including buses, subways, trains, streetcars, metros, ferries, ridehail and more. Prefer to travel on two wheels? With GPS, you can see live bikeshare and scooter locations right on the map.

2) Travel offline
Bus schedules, stop locations, subway maps and even our trip planner are available offline.

3) Powerful trip planning
See fast and easy trips combining buses, subways and trains – the app even suggests routes that combine multiple options in one trip like bus + bike or scooter + metro. You’ll find great trip plans that you never even considered! Don’t like to walk a lot or use a certain mode or transit agency? Personalize your travel in the settings.

4) GO: our step-by-step navigator*
Receive departure alarms to catch your bus or train, and get alerted when it’s time to get off or transfer. When using GO, you’ll also crowdsource more accurate info and real-time ETAs for other passengers– and rack up points and thank yous for being the most helpful rider on your line.

5) User Reports
See what other riders have to say! With millions of users contributing, you’ll get helpful info on crowding levels, on-time performance, the closest subway exits, and more.

Gonna use Google maps from now on, the best part of the app was being able to see, in real time in advance, specific stops and transportation so you can change and move in advance without needing to exit out of your current route. The fact that you now have to pay for premium for a "teleport feature" to do that now takes away my use for the app.

This app has decreased too far in usefulness as it skips trains and doesn't give accurate times. Dealing with a Metro system in as poor of shape as LA Metro combined with apps that don't work reinforces the mentality that you need a car to get anywhere in a reasonable amount of time. Edit: Down to one star. They recently made the app even more useless unless you pay. You can't look up future departures that aren't in your immediate area.

Sorry to hear the information in our app has not always been correct. If you'd like to send us more details, you can contact us at Generally, the arrivals we show come straight from the transit agencies so any accuracy issues are often on their side, but we can certainly have a look if you can provide some specifics. Thanks!

App is an effort in right direction,that is it...just an effort. It glitches 90% of the time and sometimes will show no bus even when you're sitting on one. It also doesn't show the bus driver number so you can't report any drivers who choose to skip their stops and wait at the last/second last stop to be ON TIME to go home I'd rather not waste my time with your customer support

Hi there, sorry to hear that your experience with our app has not been so great 😕 Would you mind sharing the details with us at so that we can assist and help you troubleshoot the issues you're encountering?

What's new

Our release notes writer is taking some time off. Before leaving, he texted every Transit employee an inscrutable hyperlink.

Turns out it’s no phishing scam: it’s a map of our bard’s bagel-fueled bike trip, coast-to-coast across the USA. Hopefully his bike experience comes in handy for next release notes…

Transit writer? More like bike rider amirite ha ha come back soon we are not very good at writing these without you

Also, bug fixes.
