“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."

We recently tried to get around New York City. We had an existential transit crisis in New York City. Today we’re introducing some changes— just for you, New York City.

Brooklynites! Manhattadors! Queensians! Bronxophiles! Those rare, upstanding citizens of Staten Island!

We know the MTA is certifiably-flippin-bonkers this summer. We feel your pain. We know your struggle. On our monthly jaunts to NYC we bless ourselves thrice before taking the subway and can only imagine what it's like, riding it every day. New Yorkers: You are resilient. You are incorrigible. You are FAST-LIVIN, DREAM-CHASIN, SKYSCRAPER-ERECTIN’ AMERICAN BEAUTIES!

So leave it to us Canadians to provide you with your daily dose of transit relief, eh.

Step 1: any time there are weekend subway disruptions (aka always) check our trip planner. We incorporate all those crazy MTA service changes into our app so you’re never sent on goose chase to The Rockaways.

Step 2: Today we're launching crowdsourced data on MTA buses. To all those lettered line subway riders: we’ve been crowdsourcing your subway data for a while. Well now we're in the bus business too.

Whenever you use “GO”, you’ll be broadcasting super-precise vehicle locations all the way down your line. With GO enabled, you help generate better, faster, more accurate ETAs than the MTA’s own system. Because your transit data should be updated in New York minutes—not New Orleans ones. (Still love you NOLA.)

Thousands of you swashbuckling subway riders already press “GO” every day. Now, NYC’s bus surfers can finally join your heroic ranks. (You can now crowdsource OCTA buses in Orange County, CA too—if you want to do some actual surfing.)

New Yorkers: rate us five stars to tell Governor Cuomo to FIX THE DANG SUBWAYS!!!
Everyone else: rate us five stars to tell your Governor to BUILD SOME DANG SUBWAYS!!!

More GO crowdsourced goodness coming to your city soon—don't despair. Questions? Hit us with a tweet @transitapp.

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)

This is a great app for NYC. Do you have an app so I can meet women on the subway?

Sick (4.2.1)

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)

From this dev.
