The only transit app worth having 5/5
Everything is done right. Where it fails, it fails only because the data it gets is faulty. As far as UX, clarity, beauty, and ease of use it can't be beat. Unbelievable that it's so good and ad free and doesn't cost money. Thank you, Transit!!
Add mta maps and summary view of all lines mta lines 1/5
Two things. Can you add a MTA map and keep it updated? Two. Can you add mta alerts in a summary view like on their site? Just to make it easier for us to see current alerts for current lines instead of having to move the location pin and so on. Please.
Useless in Boston area 1/5
Great interface, useless for bus predictions in greater Boston. For example: time will go from 5 to 0 to 4 with no bus.
Last review: Love the interface and abilities, but often (50%) gives erroneous information in the greater Boston area. For example, I'm waiting at the Silver Line stop now (SL4 and SL5) watching the app tell me twice now that the bus is here, when it's not. The bus just came and the app tells me it'll be here in 17 minutes. I've triple checked that I'm looking at the right bus and the right direction.
Best transit time app 5/5
By far the best transit app in the App Store. Does a great job of automatically switching the direction of the lines so that when you get somewhere and want to come home, just open the app and it already shows times for the opposite direction as you came. Love the nearby transit times in my "Today" panel! Next work on the lock screen.
Horrible service 1/5
This app is not accurate at all. I always check my bus before I leave home, and the bus never arrives on time. I do not recommend using this app or replying on this app timings for the busses. You will be late to work, school, etc if you reply in this app
Great app 5/5
Great app for the terrible 🚌 transit in St. Louis, MO.
If I could give this app 10 stars now, I would. A few days ago the real-time data stop working here in St. Louis,MO. I don't know how long it had been out prior to when I found out. I contacted the app developers and a developer by the name of Ms. Thomson responded to my email in less than 24 hours. She fix the real-time in like two days. She is just fantastic! She has great communication skills! This has to be one of the most useful apps I have. Thank you people so much for creating such a helpful app. It makes my 📱worth all the money I spent for it and my commute on the St. Louis crappy 🚌 transit so much better. And 🙏🏾 again to Ms. Thomson.
So disorganized as to be useless 1/5
Tried to check MBTA schedules in Boston. Typical result, clicking on a trip for tomorrow afternoon: "This trip is no longer possible." Ridiculous.
Can't show a simple list of schedules. I want to see when trains leave a particular station tomorrow - near impossible, as it just wants to show trips from my house. Want to see trips back home from downtown Boston? Good look at figuring out how. Confusing, disorganized, and error-prone (see "trip no longer possible").
Recent Update 2/5
I just updated the app and now it doesn't work. It worked before the update but now it's saying every is an hour away when it's not.
From Boston area
Suddenly never works 2/5
This app was OKAY until it stopped working altogether. It will now say 73 minutes for the next bus when 6-8 would arrive in that amount of time. Unusable at this point. Delete.
Tracking very inaccurate 1/5
This app constantly gets the "time to next bus" wrong. Many is the time I have watched it countdown the minutes, reach "0" and no bus. Not reliable at all. If you live in Philadelphia don't bother with this app. It constantly gets bus arrivals wrong. The last straw for me was today when it said my bus was coming in 3 minutes. It didn't. After 5 minutes it said my bus was coming in 17 minutes so I decide to walk to different route that intersects my normal bus's route. Half way there my normal bus showed up and I had to run back to my stop so I wouldn't miss it. I've deleted this app.
Super helpful app 5/5
By Argh! 9876321
I tell everyone about it!
Creates More Problems Than It Fixes 2/5
Times don't always match official schedule and will often be wrong. Sometimes it catches a delay but it's not worth the trains you will miss.
Often when a train is nearing its time, it will shift to the next train. You are confused and irritated and then it switches back to the train you were aiming for.
Kind of makes it awful.
Get a schedule and trust that over this torture
Great-now let's get truly multimodal 4/5
This app claims to be "multimodal" and it is-to a certain degree. To take it to the next step, the developers need to enable us to use multiple modes as we travel, including biking and bike share. If the cost were provided for each trip option, that would be even better (look to the LA transit app as a model.) Then this will truly be THE best app out there.
Terribly inaccurate 2/5
By Matt Carman
This app is totally unreliable in New York. It gives completely false data about trains (where are all these ghost trains that Transit shows passing me on its map?) and when it reflects reality, it only seems to be by chance. I couldn't have carved a less reliable transit app out of a bar of soap.
In the beginning it function pretty accurate now it is all off schedule.
Not very Accurate 2/5
This App is helpful, but not very accurate. Don't rely on the time displayed. For example it's telling me that my next bus won't arrive for another 1/2hour, but I see one approaching at this writing.
One of the worst applications for transit DONT DOWNLOAD THIS is very slow and it tell you the bus or train is 1 min away than when you get to the stop it uploads and says its 8 or 12 min away
Needs to be fixed cant see nun now
Love this app 5/5
Works seamlessly, bug fixes are nearly immediate, overall fantastic app. Wouldn't survive without it
Great overall app for trains & buses 4/5
I use this app for both trains & buses in New York City. It's quite accurate and handy when it works, and enjoy the extra features it has. Only thing is sometimes the logo for the bus or train disappears and I have to re-size the screen and play with it in order to view it again. But I'd recommend this to someone for sure
Works great in NYC 4/5
Used this app in NYC last year - and this app was pretty helpful.
App WAS great, now it crashes on startup. 1/5
I use this app pretty frequently for finding my way around D.C. and up until today, it was great. However, after I updated to iOS 10.3, it just crashes immediately. I've force rebooted my phone, uninstalled and reinstalled, nothing. So either this app still can't work with iOS 10.3 or something else is wrong.
Fabulous in Pittsburgh, PA 5/5
By David Troyer
Works extremely well in Pittsburgh, PA, USA
New Yorker 5/5
Saves me every time
Works great in Pittsburgh 5/5
Great real-time integration in Pittsburgh. I switched to this app. Sometimes the interface is a little confusing for selecting a specific line (like selecting which direction I want to go on some line), but usually its recommendations when I search were what I wanted to do anyway. Keep it up!
By Monica Lee Paige
Significantly inaccurate on more than one occasion.I hope the updates solves this.
Thanks for your response! I enjoy the app when accurate and now see that any inaccuracies stem from my bus depot's data feed.
Great UI, but some inconsistencies 5/5
Best transport app around, and a fabulous support team to back it up!
Like This App Needs another Five-Star Review 5/5
By Gerzer Software
If you look at the public transportation apps featured in the App Store, they almost always have the name "Citymapper". I have yet to comprehend how Apple's App Store editors have the guts to promote Citymapper over the albeit poorly-named app called "Transit". Citymapper's UI is confusing, and the app lacks basic features like real-time navigation of the quality seen in Transit's "GO" functionality.
I'm too lazy to write more, so you can just read over all of the other glowing reviews to get a sense for how great Transit is.
If it was actually right about when buses are coming... 1/5
The last three time I used this it made up buses that weren't coming (NYC). So I ended up waiting 20-30m for things I could have just sought alternate transport for.
this app always fails to tell me the accurate time until a bus comes. more often than not, it tells me the time for when a bus comes on the other side of the street. it works 70% of the time but is preferred over other apps like it. ugh.
Great app 5/5
I use it all the time and it makes taking the bus so easy I love it!
Ok, but... 2/5
The app itself is functional. Not great. But it gets the job done. The reason I only rated it 2 stars, is the STUPID update explanations.
I like to know what is updated so as to make an informed decision as to wether it's worth my time to update (bear in mind updates can be risky, as they can introduce bugs or break a perfectly working app). Instead, the development team thinks they're oh so clever and witty in describing the updates. They're more concerned with jokes than actual explanations of what has been updated. What are they hiding?
Useless for buses 2/5
Just watched the time count down from 9 min to 0 and no bus. Has now reset to 10. I use this in the Boston and area and this happens all the time. Useless for buses.
This is a Must Have App! 5/5
Simply outstanding, accurate and gorgeous app. Thanks dev. And btw funny description lol 😁
Great app for buses and LA Metro 5/5
By Brian S. H.
I love this app despite the fact it doesn't calculate for Amtrak Surfliner or Metrolink. Next time I head to LA, I will definently use this app.
Works great in GR 5/5
Works grand for me here in Grand Rapids, Mi get to the bus on time every morning.
Great phone app--Watch app needs improvement 4/5
This is an awesome app for anyone who uses transit, or takes a multimodal approach to getting around. Whether and how well it works will depend on the data provided by your local transit provider.
I have knocked off one star due to the Watch app. So much promise, but it takes forever to load or refresh, and often gets hung up. Please improve the Watch experience!!!
Almost perfect 4/5
Great transit app , but sometimes the bus times are wrong . I live in LA and it's really useful overall I prefer it over the other ones
Aww yes! 5/5
By Da Urge
This app is dope. Transit is easy to use and very reliable. The Apple Watch app is very simple and easy to use as well.
- this app still rocks and use it EVERY time I need to take public transit. Love it.
One of the best apps ever 5/5
I love it—I use it everyday!!!
Just great 5/5
By Alex mortero
It works very good and some things that did not work were fixed very fast. That is very appreciated. Also, the interface is very easy and fast to understand. Finally, is very nice that you can vote in the website for what city you want to see next.
Keep it that way, you are great.👌🏻
Thank you—the whole Transit Team. 5/5
Very helpful, and the update always comes with a good read. Keep up with the amazing bed-time stories. 😭😂
Use it every day 5/5
Love this app. Saved my butt a time or two lol
Download this app and take a minute to read the update descriptions. You'll thank me! This app is amazingly helpful all on it's own and I recommend it to anyone I run into at the bus stop asking when the next bus is supposed to be here
Works Great ... If You're NOT in NYC 1/5
This is one of the worst apps around for anyone trying to use the buses and any of the five boroughs of New York City. The times are always remarkably inaccurate, and when the times are correct, they're always buses going in the opposite direction. I make sure that I choose the proper direction, and when the app says my bustable rived in three minutes, it does arrive in three minutes, it's just going the opposite way that I am. The times also fluctuate. You can check the app and it'll say your bus will arrive in 10 minutes, five minutes later it says five minutes, then a few minutes later it'll jump up to 27 minutes, then it goes back down to 11 minutes, then back to 18 minutes. Watching the time schedule makes me seasick with all of the ups and downs. Terrible app, absolutely terrible
Always in use in my world 5/5
I move around a lot in the city, so this app always helps on bus timing and routes to take. Great job. Thanks for the updates
Rock Solid 5/5
Solid App, AMAZING Development & Support teams and absolutely the best Update Notes of any app in the history of apps!
Better than Apple Maps
