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.
10 GREAT THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH TRANSIT:
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.

Our hands were freezing. Our toes were freezing. Even our in-app GO departure times were freezing. So we went somewhere to thaw them all out.
INTRODUCING: Transit Release Notes, Louisiana edition.
That’s right y’all. Your Canadian compadres went south this winter. Deep south. Into the swamp. Into the humidity. Into the land formerly (but also contemporarily) known as New Orleans. For no other reason than to defrost our bugs, heat up our jokes and maybe catch some Mardi Gras beads along the way.
We prowled the streets of New Orleans. We rode the St. Charles streetcar. We stood fast on the neutral ground, drank bourbon on Bourbon and spoke French on Frenchman. We hit somebody in the face with a packet of beads but steadfastly maintain it was an “accident.”
As our weary eyes dilated, we noticed that the map view was wonky. Zooming in and out without your permission. What nonsense. We blew on the map like an N64 cartridge and are happy to report it’s now totally fine. And so are the issues with GO, which was draining more battery than it should have been, but now drains exactly as much battery as was intended all along.
Neighbors in Florida! Where y’at? Sunkissed (but beadless) we’ve rewarded your proximity to NOLA with 3 new transit lines: Votran (Daytona Beach), SunRail (Orlando) and the Delray Beach Trolley. Neighbors in NYC! Okay you are not our neighbors but we love you regardless. You’ve now got agency-provided real-time for the NQRW + BD lines, while we continue to crowdsource real-time for the remaining lettered lines in your big, beautiful, worm-ridden apple.
What else? You thought it was over? Oh no. Here at Transit New Orleans, we have one rule and one rule only: laissez les bug fix rouler.
-Fixed issues with VoiceOver accessibility (we now specify if a departure is in real-time)
-Fixed issues with saved locations (we now show them on the map, for easier trip planning)
-Fixed issues where release notes would never end (they now definitely do)
Rate us five stars because we tried to open a gator wrangling business while we were here and OH MY GOD IT’S ABOUT TO CHOMP OFF MY ELBO----
