Transit App is great resource for gathering bus and train information because of its large array of features and engaging layout. You will see that this travel application is truly unparalleled and provides an excellent experience.


Detailed listings: Transit App provides you with all departure and arrival times of individual buses and trains for weeks on end, making it an excellent application for planning trips. You will also see the route taken by each bus or train, so you know which is the best choice for you.

Fun, fast design: Transit's main screen is covered in a variety of colors that are not just attractive but also provide a color-coded organization system so you can locate your form of transportation. The Google Maps integration feature performs well and displays bus routes and stops in great detail.

Great tools: We liked the trip planning tool because it offers multiple travel routes and step-by-step instructions. Individual buses and trains can be favorited with Transit App and will appear at the top of your screen, making your travel process a tad easier.

Rare inaccuracy: Transit App does not always depict accurate departure and arrival times. But this was not a common occurrence and will not have a major impact on you.

Bottom Line

This application eases the daily commuter's life greatly with its easy-to-use monitoring tools. Anyone needing to access nearby public transportation info will be satisfied with Transit App.

What's new in version 5.0.5

The fall. It's a season. It's a band. It's what happens to a box of raisins in a trick-or-treater's hand. Here are all the raisins we're updating Transit...

1. Bugs: we've fixed issues with connecting lines, GO crashes, the route details screen, and HTML tags in service alerts. Woops!

2. UI tweaks: for slightly better App Feng Shui.

Please rate us five stars for evicting all the bugs that were raisin' hell.

Let us know @transitapp on Twitter if you find any others <3
