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."

Release Notes

1/16/2018 | Version : 4.3.4 | Size : 87.2 MB
Two truths and a lie, Transit edition:

1. We got rid of a bug where our British GPS robot “Daniel” started speaking random garbage in your ear.

2. We got rid of a bug where departures were disappearing from our schedule view like a David Blaine trick gone horribly wrong.

3. New York bagels are better than Montreal bagels.

Spot the lie? Tweet your best guess to @transitapp. And don’t forget to rate us five stars—because while our release notes may only be 66.66666% true, when it comes to transit times, we’re much, much better.

12/21/2017 | Version : 4.3.3 | Size : 87.7 MB
TL;DR—ho ho ho…. bug fixes.

’Twas the week before Christmas, inside of our office,
Devs told the release team “New features? Not cautious.”
So instead of an update with actual meat
We’re embedding Bug Fixes™… in quasi-defeat.
We’re such crowdpleasers, eh? (Our apologies, fam,
for this empty release note-turned-poetry slam.)
There was Scrooge on the run; and the Scrooge been seized
Who refused to plan trips if you spoke Portuguese
And a GOhst (naughty GOhst!) who did go on a spree
Haunting GO stats, way back—since 1970.
What grinches! What agents! Of bus-borne displeasure
Now we’ve put them on ice for your bus-riding leisure.
We’ve amended, as well, all the bad station cells
And alarm MP3s that became jingle bells.
Other than that… yep sorry. It’s over. We’re done.
Shout out Alex from Texas (you asked for it, hun.)
Please go give us five stars: send our app store rank climbing—
Merry ho-ho to all. Now it’s time to stop rhyming ;-)

12/14/2017 | Version : 4.3.2 | Size : 87.7 MB
Relax. Sit back. Make yourself a snowstorm margarita. Eat a carrot. Build a gingerbread house. See if you can fit down your chimney. Anything it takes to get into the holiday spirit. But whatever you do, make sure to join us in a toast to the elves at Transit. They’ve powered billions of rides in 2017. Since Santa needs their help to power his sleigh on December 24th, they’ve worked overtime to get you your presents early. Without further ado...

ALL-NEW PROFILE VIEW: it’s not just mom’s bad turkey we’re sharing this holiday season—say hello to your bikeshare, carshare, rideshare accounts. All in one place, because you mobility mavericks needed an easier way to manage your myriad profiles. To access Profile View, just tap the gear icon in the top-right corner. Profile View will show your GO crowdsourcing stats in select markets, along with any “Favourited” transit lines. You can manage those favourites—and corresponding alarms and service alerts—inside Profile View. So what? You’ve got all your mobility accounts, plus transit, all in one easy-to-manage spot. What could possibly come next...

JUST-AS-NEW SETTINGS: After you hit the gear icon (for Profile View) slide on over to the next tab: Settings. Here, you can find and edit all of your saved locations (home/work/gym/reindeer stables) for easier trip planning. We’ve also grouped transit modes more intelligently, with public transit modes (and other modes) each grouped together. You’ve always been able to toggle off certain modes you don’t use (like Uber, or suburban buses) so they stop cluttering your screen. But now you can toggle them on/off so fast you’ll feel like you’re in the Matrix or something.

BRANCHES: you can’t decorate them… but you can ride them: our slick branch cards are now available in ~all~ markets for ~all~ applicable transit lines. If your line has multiple stop patterns (some trips end at Stop X, while others end at Stop Y) we’ll tell you where each branch is going—and what time they’re coming—without having to tap anything. Save your taps for dance class, cutie.

BIKESHARE: added support for prepaid plans in select markets. Because we all know bikers like to be early for things. Like green lights.

And last but not least, the start of our twelve days of holiday bug fixes:

-Took out the lag when you swipe between station cells
-Implemented complicated fix for complicated stop list bug
-Killed the timebar bug with a crowbar codec
-X’d out our iPhone X image sizing issues
-Our seasonal Tim Cookies no longer taste like asphalt
-Added VoiceOver support for ridesharing trips
-Fixed the meta-bug that inserts itself into release notes
-META-BUG: haha no you didn’t

For other bug discoveries, last-minute wishlist modifications, or virtual eggnog donations to our team, we’re on Twitter at @transitapp. And don’t forget to rate us five stars—we’ll put them on top of our tree ;)

Comments and Ratings for Transit • Bus & Subway Times

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.

CommuterLadyBug (4.2.1)

This app is just crazy good and very useful! It has the correct arrival and departure times for busses that makes commuting easy and tolerable. Thank you for a great app!!

Fantastic app, best public trans app on the market (4.2.1)
6/11/2017 8:03:19 PM 5/5 By ccrayl
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)
