Confusing and user un-friendly. The Gantt Chart-like schedule layout with all the different alternatives is unnecessary as a default view. Just show me the single next ride. To your credit, google maps’ public transit layout isnt much better anyway
Dislike new widget design 2/5
I prefer the old widget design where I was given a list of the subway lines with their ETA at my closest/selected subway stop, and indicator if the ETA was real-time or estimated. If I wanted commute time, l would use Google maps. App has been functional otherwise.
Edit: The reboot worked. And then it reverted back to the “new” widget design a few days later.
Home Screen Widgets 4/5
My favorite transit app by far! So glad to have Home Screen widgets added!!!! Can we expect to see a Home Screen widget similar to the today view one that showed train/bus arrival times?
Thank you so much 5/5
After now FOUR YEARS of using this app with little to no disappoint, I thought maybe it would become obsolete now that Apple Maps has transit integrated in the Phoenix metro area. But, nope! I still use the nearby lines feature as much as any app on my phone. I am forever grateful for the development and maintenance of this app.
Maybe...can we get a nearby lines widget for the Home Screen? I only seem to have it when I swipe right from the Home Screen. Other than that. 11/10 rating from me!
App is trash changes ever 3 seconds u go to your bus stop a lil early then you have to wait 30 more min terrible for people who go to work using the bus
Amazing + ADD Coach USA 4/5
They should Add Coach USA because it’s most used in NJ especially Rockland Coaches and Suburban lines
The old Subway/Bus ETA Widget...Gone!!! Why? 4/5
Loved the app but I wished you guys kept the widget where it showed the ETA of the nearest bus and subway close to my location. Not sure whats the need for a countdown to when I reached my location. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I just care when my bus/train comes.
The best app 5/5
I have used this app since I was in college, until the pandemic started. As soon as the Covid-19 situation ends, I’ll begin to ride in some public buses again. I love using the transit bus app.
Transit used to be my favorite app EVER! What happened?? 3/5
I started using Transit to navigate after moving to a new city around 2014. I loved it! It was speedy, reliable, and I even looked forward to reading the cavalier Clickhole-style update notes. From 2017-2018, I didn't use the app at all because I wasn't bussing anywhere. Moved back to the inner city in November of 2019... and Transit had changed.
It goes like this:
- plug in my work commute
- select "Arrive By [time]" function
- hit the "go" button so I get an audio reminder to leave (i.e. "Depart in 15 minutes")
This is where things go wrong. The app will change my departure time to the soonest departing bus, regardless of how that affects my transfer. I'm not sure why it does this, and it's rarely problematic in the sense that I leave at the wrong time... but I do have to start the whole process over two or three times just to make it stay on my desired arrival time.
Why have the "Arrive By" function at all if the app is going to switch to the nearest departure??
I'm sorry to get adamant about it, but it's something I have to wrestle with every day, because Transit is still better than the local alternative. I wish it wouldn't do this!
Wrong bus number 3/5
By Hardof Hearing
This app is giving me the wrong bus.
App doesn’t alert or adjust to early/late arrivals 1/5
Created destination schedules do not adjust or alert the traveler to changes to the predefined modes of transportation. For example, it clearly shows bus routes and when available, the location of the bus on the route. But if the bus is running early on its route the app does not alert the traveler that the bus will be early and that they need to adjust leave time. Likewise cancelled bus/train routes are not indicated and the app inappropriately provides the traveler with a route time schedule for transportation that will never arrive.
Best city mobility map / routing & navigation app 5/5
By Macs for Everyone!
Don't quite understand how Transit app consistently suggests routes that are at least as safe / fast / interesting as Apple Maps and Google Maps, but they do, and often more so!
Almost always better than the transit agencies from whom they get data, even! Wow! Thanks so much!
(Waze is better for driving.)
Nice app and it helps a lot and take u to any destination
Not real time 2/5
By Divanna bish
Read reviews: it doesn’t work for real time for some bus lines and/or subway. Said my bus passed so I called a taxi and the bus the there when the taxi was arriving so it was 5 mins delay but the app doesn’t let you know that. It can get stressful if you’re rushing or need real time buses arrival, it can say you bus just passed when it’s delay.
best bus app 5/5
on the off chance i go out, i always use this app
Super dissatisfied 5/5
This app is constantly incorrect about the arrival times on different rails and buses.
Glitchy and alarm feature is not as useful as you’d like 3/5
Really like this app overall. Definitely a better interface than google maps. A few things have been challenging though. Simply scrolling up makes it really easy to dismiss a route you were trying to view. I’ve had to start over so many times after accidentally scrolling just a bit too far. I also wish the alarm feature would actually let me view the trip I’ve set the alarm for or that the alarms were at least easier to find. They’re pretty hard to find unless you remember what route you saved them on which is hard if you’re learning a new area. There’s also no way to tap the alarm and see the trip you’ve set it for. It only shows you the time and whatever line you’ve set it for. Lastly, for whatever reason, it’s gotten progressively glitchier like erasing trips when i switch to different windows or just freezing up. At one point it even erased the work address I had set as a favorite.
This app is bad 1/5
It said the bus was coming at 3:20 and I waited their for 20 minutes and it never came
Perfect but for one minor issue 4/5
By All About That Ace was take
This app is amazing for navigating new cities and has made me so comfortable using public transit to get to and from my job, but why does it show incoming and outgoing buses at the same time now and how do I turn it off? The main bus line I use overlaps itself in a lot of places and now I have to guess which way the tracker is going and it’s infuriating
It’s frustrating!!! Says a bus is coming then a bus never shows up, or the app says a bus is a few minutes away, then changes to 0 and the bus flies by. Annoying!
Worst app ever! 1/5
It made me wait for hours and kept changing the departure times.
One of the most useful apps! 4/5
By far the most useful app on my phone besides finance and email! That says A LOT!
Only issue is sudden arrival time changes as noted in other reviews.
Very accurate. 5/5
By Best cincrete guy
I highly recommend it.
Please don’t fix the January bug yet? 5/5
I haven’t checked out the voiceover fixess yet, those were a big problem, but I’m really glad they got fixed. I am writing the five star review, because the January bug is pretty apt. Don’t change it until 2021 stops feeling more like 2020? It couldn’t be more true. It really does feel like the 13th month of 2020.
Hands down the best transit app 5/5
I am a 100% transit dependent resident of Chicago and this app is essential. Not only is it user friendly it uses crowdsourced info of riders with the app to give the best directions. Not even the CTA can update their maps as fast as Transit. They even include shuttles, temporary closures, and reroutes in the system.
Always impressed with this app and love helping out my neighbors with the real time updates.
Transit Info 1/5
This app isn’t accurate and doesn’t update with the MTA in the manor that it should. You can be directed into the wrong location, costing you time and money, or even problems. I have asked countless times to update the info or give notices about correct transit changes, but received no answers. Why did they even create this app if your not going to provide accurate service or updates.
Great, would like to add a helpful feature 4/5
By Real Martie Faye
I use Transit every day and it’s been quite useful. I would like to make a suggestion, if there were any issues (such as broke down or unexpected delay/detour), users should be able to suggest them, so it’s real time. I was on the bus this morning and it got a flat tire. There is no way of me reporting this to inform riders why that particular bus is no indefinitely delayed. Maybe users could upload a photo as evidence too so it’s not just random reports either. As community seems to be one of the important aspects of this app, I think this could be a useful suggestion.
Never shows busses it seems to be getting worse and worse 1/5
Ever since covid started the busses never show up in real time on this app it’s horrible now
There are better apps. 1/5
more accurate, better updates and better tracking than TransitApp.
Worst app i’ve ever had 1/5
missed me every bus i’ve had to catch in the past month. do not download. worst tracking system, does not give accurate estimates and misses buses that are 5 minutes away which makes you late
Great driver 5/5
By Brett Borges
What a great driver this afternoon she really knows her stuff. Made my stop in record time.
App keeps crashing. new update? 1/5
I open it, and after about five seconds it just closes and crashes!
❤️ This app as a New Yorker. Hope you update with widgets soon! 👾👾👾
Ehh i guess it works 3/5
So here’s the thing, the train/bus arrival times are about 60% accurate. I would recommend “SubwayTime” for accurate train time schedules. I mainly use this here app for directions though. There’s a few kinks to get by for example; when you’re trying to get directions to somewhere and choose a time, it switches it to a completely different time for you... sometimes i have to input it 3 times for it to stick. So i mean 🤷🏽♀️ meh
The main problem 1/5
The app flashes alerts on my Home Screen, but long alerts are cut off. But when I open the app, there is no place to find the alerts. So, the whole alert feature seems to be a waste of time.
So poor app 1/5
No bus on time, and no delay notification! This app is not helpful, but let me miss the buy all the time
Made me think there was two more rides they never showed up and the the rides disappeared from the app, this literally happens every single time :(
Aluda mucho ala comunidad 4/5
Grasias Por aver inventado esta app es la mejor la uso cuando puedo todo el tiempo
Simple and accurate 5/5
Love how I can just open the app and get transit times in a second

The 74 such a blessing for Everton St especially on Sunday! Only bus for quite the walk for us Seniors. Thanx👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
Fix the times! 2/5
Everyday this week I’ve gotten my times off here and they’ve been inaccurate by like 15 minutes, please fix
All it does is crash 2/5
By Brotha Jay
I’m using an iPhone 6 Plus with 12.4.x (latest) iOs. Any time I search for an address it blacks out and crashes. Cannot use at all.
It has access to my location and seems to provide a timetable if I click on one of the routes listed at the bottom of the screen, but that’s it. Doesn’t work.
Update: after reinstalling the app functions. However, it is ‘not at all intuitive’. It took me some time to realize which part of the route was the actual bus portion and not the actual starting time/point. There is also no specific identification of where the route starts. The old Metro app would indicate which corner of the street to find and catch the bus. This app obfuscates this information and had me searching for the stop.
I will test some more; but, my first use of this app was dismal and frustrating, as I had to get to and from the hospital while my car is being serviced.
Must download 5/5
Very accurate , super easy , helpful and one of my daily uses to get around . I love it !
Just download Uber 1/5
This app is TERRIBLE at tracking buses accurately, one moment it says your bus is 3 minutes away then 2 seconds later it says 45 minutes away. Needless to say your bound to be late for work if your relying on this app. I’ve reached out to them multiple times on this issue and it’s still not been fixed.
Miss leading/Wrong Info 3/5
By Loli Maru
For the most part it works. A lot of the time the timing is off. Also information about route changes or delays are always wrong. So many times it says a certain line is going local but end up being express. Really frustrating. I tend to not rely on the app.
Worst app 1/5
This app never follow any time. The funny thing is in the map it will show bus is in the way but reality it is not even started from the depot. I don’t know how they connect gps. It is major concern in winter. Today is the first day of winter schedule and app started it’s suffering I remember only couple of times it predicted correctly, actually neither MBTA cares about it. I think mbta us one of the unlike transport service in the country by people. No one is satisfied with mbta service
