By Samuel Vermette

“You won't realize how much time you can save planning until you use this app” - LA Times
“Killer app” - WSJ
"MBTA has a favorite transit app — and it's called Transit" - Boston Globe

Transit is your real-time urban travel companion. Navigate your city’s public transit system with accurate real-time predictions, simple trip planning, step-by-step navigation, service disruption notifications, and departure and stop reminders... all presented in a clear, bold interface. Public transport not cooperating? Easily request an Uber, reserve a car2go, or grab the closest bike share.

1) See real-time arrivals for nearby buses and trains instantly upon launch.
2) Watch your transit vehicle approaching on a map in real-time*
3) Compare options with powerful A to B trip plans using real-time data.
4) Launch GO for step-by-step navigation when you’re on an unfamiliar route or want to nap/read/space out.*
5) Receive departure alarms and stop notifications as well as prompts to pick up the pace in GO.*
6) Get push notifications if service disruptions will affect your commute.
7) View transit schedules and route itineraries—even when you’re offline!
8) Locate bike share stations, see the number of bikes available, pay for passes, and unlock bikes (in select cities).
9) Check ETA (and surge) for nearby Ubers, and book in two taps.
10) View availability and book cars with car2go and other local car-share services.

*continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

“Your app was the deciding factor in selling my car”
“Blows Google Maps out of the water.”
"Probably the best thing on my phone, no joke."
“The head of our local transit agency recommended this app over the one her agency created.”
"Truly ingenious work here. Honestly, these guys should be in charge of actual public transportation itself."

Rate us 5 stars to get the Sigur Rós translation of these notes.

(Or tweet us @transitapp if any bugs have invaded your homestead.)

6/13/2017 | Version : 4.2.1 | Size : 78.3 MB
-Last update wasn’t updating on iTunes
-Fixed. Sorry to everyone affected*
*Except for “Eric99” who called us the “the biggest giantest stupidest idiots who ever walked the surface of the Earth.”
-Eric, come on. We don’t walk the surface of the Earth. We take the subway.


You look to the right (it’s a bus stop). You look to the left (it’s a rack of bikes). You look down at your feet (great feet. the best.)

Now pick: Which will get you home the fastest? Because you’ve already spent too much time at the bar tonight, drinking spruce beer and soda pops, and now you’re late for your phone call. (Nature is calling.)


Pick the best mode for any moment. Starting today, whenever you plan a trip, you’ll see ETAs for bike/bikeshare and walking too. (Yes. Finally.) If a long, boring, bladder-testing transit transfer will take longer than biking, we’ll guide you to the nearest bikeshare station. We’ll also give you a-to-b directions to the station closest to your destination. And reminder: in select cities, you can even buy passes and unlock your bikeshare from within Transit—because deep integrations are our thing.™ Unlockable bikes now work in DET, CHI, MTL, TOR, and the following unabbreviatable cities: Louisville, Columbus, Aspen, Minneapolis and Chattanooga.

Biking not your style? The trip planner also lets you compare transit and biking with non-pedal bipedal transport. For those who know what boots were made for.


Because some transit lines are complex. Maybe they share the same trunk, but stop at different stops (a-to-b-to-c vs. a-to-c) or they end up going to different end-of-line stations (like Boston’s green line, which shoots off into separate B/C/D/E branches). Now in nearby mode, we’ll group together all those different branches into one card, just like you’d see on the departure board at your station. Does this sound hopelessly complicated? No need, bruh—tap the schedule view for your line (clock icon) and enter your destination stop. We’ll tell you which trains, at which times, will get you where you want to go. Easy peasy! Now live in Boston and SF, but don’t worry—you’ll all get your own special cards soon enough.

Lastly: (1) bikeshare/walking/Uber results in the trip planner are slimmer than transit, (2) you can now opt out of promo push notifications, (3) wow you are looking fabulous, and (4) we replaced our FAQ with a Help section. It was written by Michelle and Katie, our resident transit oracles, and will illuminate Transit’s deepest, darkest secrets. Like how to use our features. Where the dead bugs go. Or what Julien does with the widget in his free time.

Rate us five stars to help us get a restraining order for the widget.

PS, say hi to us on twitter! We read all your tweets :) @transitapp

PPS, lots of new agencies too: Bustang (Denver, CO), SLE (Southeastern CT), MSTCA (Monterey, CA), GCTGA (Gwinnett County, GA), MAECA (Modesto, CA), and CET (Bend, OR). We’ve also added real-time for PSTA (St. Petersburg, FL), Fairfax Connector (Fairfax, VA), PACE (Chicago Suburbs), Torrance Transit (South Bay L.A., CA), Magic School Buses (worldwide), Sonoma County Transit (Sonoma County, CA) and CET (Bend, Oregon—a place our data team apparently loves.) See you next time!

4/10/2017 | Version : 4.1.6 | Size : 83.7 MB
NEW: tweaked a thing!!!
NEW: added a gizmo!!!
NEW: fixed a pixel!!!
NEW: okay we admit it there isn’t much in this update except for bug fixes we’re sorry

Except for our lucky lettered line subway riders in NYC... to all y’all good samaritans crowdsourcing your vehicle locations with GO, we’ll now show your monthly + lifetime stats on how many riders you’ve helped. Just tap the big green smiley button in the top left. We’ll also show you what your GO crowdsourcing rank is (!!!) since some of you aren’t happy just being “good samaritans.” You’ve gotta be the best samaritans.

At any rate, that’s all for this update! Thanks for your patience. Enjoy the bug fixes and rate us five stars if you believe in unconditional love.

(And if your love is conditional, please rate us five stars and leave your conditions in the comments.)

Love you always,

Comments and Ratings for Transit • Real-Time App for Bus, Subway & Metro

Widget Issues (4.2.1)
6/12/2017 3:00:36 PM 1/5 By mendozavr
The Nearby widget changes the direction of the routes it lists without notice. Either list each route and direction separately or make the route direction more prominent.

Fantastic app, best public trans app on the market (4.2.1)

Just made my Seattle trip flawless with tons of options and fantastic features. A+ app

New to NYC - this app is tres cool (4.2.1)
6/11/2017 1:50:00 PM 5/5 By Gargooch
This is a great app for NYC. Do you have an app so I can meet women on the subway?

Sick (4.2.1)
6/11/2017 1:03:39 PM 5/5 By Rekuda

Very Helpful for a Bay Area commuter (4.2.1)
6/10/2017 4:48:59 PM 5/5 By Eshanhaval
I take public transport regularly and transit has always been a very important part of it.

Lifesaver for SF Transit Users! (4.2.1)
6/10/2017 3:01:06 PM 5/5 By murphy123
In SF so much more accurate than Google Maps or Apple Maps - particularly the muni lines. Just wish it had calendar integration.

Inaccurate and unprofessional (4.2.1)
6/10/2017 11:59:26 AM 1/5 By Moneyman blood
This is one of the most inaccurate means of mta scheduling I've ever used. Constantly has wrong subway and bus information. None of buses come at the right time. Especially on weekends they should take this app off the market tbh honest

There is NO other app like transit 💚 (4.2.1)
6/10/2017 11:32:38 AM 5/5 By R-dhs
I'm very glad I have downloaded transit, about a year and half ago, for two reasons: First, after each update, the app gets greater and more efficient; Second reason is the update description itself 🙂

Beyond awesome (4.2.1)
6/10/2017 11:01:37 AM 5/5 By derekbrumley
...and brought to you by the cleverest, funniest, most responsive team of developers who ever walked the surface of the earth (or took the subway)
