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.

Just when you thought all we did was kill bugs. Just when you thought “I haven’t heard from Transit in a while…” Just when you thought your deepest, darkest Transit fantasies couldn’t be satisfied. We pull a Beyoncé. Surprise surprise. Time for Transit 4.3.
*cue heart-pounding German techno music* mmmptzz mmmptzz mmmtpzz mmmtpzz…
Uber addicts. We know you’re out there. Cruising around the city, night after night, taking five-star ride after five-star ride. For those times when you’re feeling a little bougie: we’ve added native Uber integration. No more switching apps. You can request rides, pick cars, and watch your vehicle approach—all within Transit. Don’t want to see Uber? Disable it in the settings. You are the master of your own transportation destiny.
What else is new? One of our most requested features: expandable stop lists in GO. No more “10 stops remaining… 9 stops remaining…”Instead of just giving you the number of remaining stops—we’ll give you their actual names! Expand the list of stops with a single tap. Like you were probably trying to do already, but now… it actually works?
HOLLYWOOD!!! And other less famous Los Angeles neighbourhoods…. We started crowdsourcing real-time for LA Metro with our partners, Swiftly (@SwiftlyInc). Press GO, get real-time updates on when to leave/disembark, generate better predictions for fellow riders, make sure Millennial Daniel Day Lewis doesn’t miss his big audition…
...for a part in Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest drama: There Will Be Bikes! Set in Seattle and DC, the two first cities to get dockless bikeshare support. Find all the dockless bikes on the map: Spin, LimeBike, ofo, Mobike, Jump. To unlock a bike, just tap the pin (on the map) or the “Get Bike” button (in the trip planner).
**We also added support for the fancy folks with an iPhone X. No more intruding bezel, ruining your day. Now the bezel knocks beforehand—and no longer obscures important Transit info. Stay tuned for our next iPhone X feature: customer support via Animoji.**
