What's New

Julien is an iOS developer at Transit.
Julien volunteered to fix the widget.
Julien doesn’t sleep anymore.

Whenever someone asks him what he does for work, he curls up in the fetal position and whispers to himself “try not to cry, try not to cry.” Last week, his neighbour spray painted “n00b” on his front door. For Halloween, his kids dressed up as widgets and made him play hide-and-seek. Over and over, they disappeared, giggling “unable to load” while Julien searched frantically in fear.

Today, Julien’s nightmare is over. He fixed the widget. This evening, to apologize to his neighbour, he’s going to mow his lawn. Tonight, Julien will celebrate his victory with his wife, children, and an entire tub of cookie dough.

More reasons for Julien to celebrate:
- He can now see his vehicle approaching in GO
- When he’s feeling “wild”, Julien doesn’t listen to GO, and takes a shortcut through the back alleys. Transit takes note and adapts to Julien’s odd sense of adventure.
- Sometimes, Julien likes to race the bus driver and run to the next stop. No problem: GO will update his directions to the stop that’s closest.
- Julien likes to plan ahead. Now he can set an alarm for a trip tomorrow morning.
- Julien isn’t so good at spelling, but he knows where he’s going. He loves the new option “Choose on Map” that lets him slide the pin to his destination, rather than typing it in letter-by-letter, hoping auto-correct kicks in.

In other news, you can now buy bike share passes and unlock bikes in Minneapolis with Nice Ride. But that’s not thanks to Julien.

Julien will sleep better tonight knowing that Transit added:

- Wheel Trans in Tri-Valley, California
- GTrans in Los Angeles
- Stanford University’s Marguerite Shuttle in Palo Alto
- Real-time for DASH in Washington D.C.
- Real-time for Golden Gate Transit in SF

Give us 5 stars to make us shine as brightly as Julien’s eyes.

App Description

“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."
