Google and others will not show you around better 5/5
I downloaded this because I knew that there were multiple bus lines that could get me to my destination, yet google only provided one. This app is amazing. It’s a lot like how waze gives you real time alerts based on other users. The go feature will allow you to share your location so other users can see where their bus or train is in real time. That means you can get updates from people too. A couple of things on my wishlist though: the interface is confusing at first, and I have to believe there’s a simpler way to navigate (though I’m used to it now), also there isn’t an Apple Watch app and I think there needs to be. I’m the kind of person that wears one everyday and would like the see the current time, and the next bus for my favorite line in a complication on my main watch face.
UI hard to figure out but fricking amazeballs once you do 5/5
By Happy User 7193
I did not find the UI intuitive but i am 35-40yr old with lots of bias from crappy old traditional transit apps so it might be my legacy baggage making it harder for me.
But once I finally figured it out this app is great - especially the GO feature (unfortunately named, I always thought this was our GO train service here in ontario)
Cuando elijo una linea
Esta no me muestra,ejemplo, mi lugar de trabajo, lo cual no ce entonces que tan cerca pasa esa linea
Los buses dicen que pasan por frente de mi i son fantasma porque nunca pasan o bien fisico detras d lo que dice la app
SEATTLE USER 1/5
I love the UI it’s way easier and simpler than one bus away or other apps, however what good is a dope looking app if it always makes me miss my bus even 5 years later(I originally used it in sophomore year of high school). If they actually had the times right this would be my favorite transit app for sure but until then I’ll use one bus away if I ever need to take the bus.

This is a very nice app. It got me there on time!!! Thanks
Innacurate times 2/5
This app always screws me over with innacurate times EVERY TIME I USE IT!!
By Terra Bee
Not live or up to date. It will lie and say a train or bus is nearby but really isn’t. Deleting ASAP.
This app is everything I need 5/5
By Music carnivore
I love that this app shows the travel times for many different forms of non-car transportation—it has times for bike as well as different forms of transit. (It also has Uber and Lyft but those are not sustainable) I also really like that I can get real time locations of busses, which is helpful when I’m trying to decide if a bus is going to be 3 minutes late or if it is already gone.
Timing is always off 3/5
744 bus never seems to arrive when the app says it is coming. Many times I have walked from my office to the stop to time it correctly (not wait in the cold or arrive minutes after bus just departed). Today and several other times, I have been waiting 30+ minutes in the dark/rain/cold. It would be nice if there was a notification if something happened to the current bus or if they could report locations in real time.
2019 - Year of some user testing 2/5
By Coti M
Really confusing interactions and I have no idea where I’m supposed to fine estimates for the lines I’m looking for
Transit app😘 5/5
It awesome, I love it!! Gonna use it for now on, gbye google maps😘👋🏾
Not even accurate 1/5
Not even accurate
Gives u right directions, but wrong arrival times of the bus a lot. Makes it confusing, which bus to hop on and when to wait. It makes it seem like u change bus when it makes new frame(when it’s really a bus wait station, making it so much more confusing). Let alone it’s been glitching out while tracking, WHAT THE HELL
SO much better than Google Maps 5/5
By Michael Siciliano
I know what you’re thinking: “I already have Google Maps, why do I need ANOTHER navigation app clogging up my phone?” Here’s why:
Transit shows you visually the comparison between all public transit options and the times you would need to leave ALL AT ONCE, live updating, with the tap of a button. You’ll never want to use Google Maps for public transit again.
Mi primera vez q viejo 5/5
By El chufas
Estuvo genial esta aplicación no sabía andar an bus y esta aplicación ayuda demasiado , y te avisa en tus parada con anticipación
No Apple Watch app anymore, why? 1/5
I don’t care about giving you ride data — this app is about access to public arrival time info. Removing the Apple Watch version runs counter to that goal.
Love it; Go needs 1 improvement 5/5
Transit is the best transit app by leagues.
Go needs one improvement:
Allow riders who get on the bus before starting Go to initiate Go mid-ride. For example, selecting a bus line should give a user the option to choose “I am currently on this line”, so that the user’s position can be synced to the bus route for other users immediately. To combat abuse, the app could prevent such users’ locations from being broadcast to others until the phone detects movement above 10 mph or something.
Time precision is beyond words 5/5
This app provides unremarkable ETA’s in the LA area amongst other accurate information. Five stars, hands down!
Super accurate! Love it!! Super helpful!!
Says no bus route available but I’m on a bus right now 1/5
By jyst srmd it
I know my bus routes by heart. The app says it gives real time gps of busses and bus routes. I was right on the bus stop and opened my transit app to see if I could see how close my bus was to me but it keeps telling me there’s no bus routes available. This app is useless. Either that or I’m doing it wrong. One star rating. This app is crap.
Not user friendly in my area 1/5
There is no way of being able to find what I need in my area. Sometimes what I need will pop up but mostly I can never figure out where the bus I need to catch is or when it will be there.
Totally dislike it! Swiftly app was MUCH better!
Issue report 3/5
I love your app very much, I do use it daily for my commute in Denver, Colorado and recommend it to so many people in my office! Today January 16th I have noticed accuracy issue where the bus is coming in in and the app tells you the next bus arriving in 1 hour.
I didn’t find support contact to report this so I had to leave it here.
Once you look at this let me know to remove this review
Downgrade from Swiftly 1/5
Swiftly worked fine. Then I was notified that it was being discontinued and I should use Transit instead. In San Francisco, it's completely unreliable for Muni trains.
Completely wrong times 2/5
Idk if this app is getting worse with each update or what but these bus times are COMPLETELY WRONG. This app is telling me that my normal bus that comes almost every 20 min is coming an hour and half apart... what is going on this? It used be a fairly decent app
App not working 1/5
I think the app is glitching. It was working on my phone now the bus line disappeared. At first it wasnt showing the times then when it showed the times, the times was for the next day. I couldnt tell what time the bus was supposed to come. Needs to be fixed. I tried uninstalling then reinstalling but it didnt work.
Time estimates!!!!! 3/5
The times that are displayed are incorrect and need to be updated. If I would have followed the time that was shown I would be late but instead I listen to my instinct and left sooner and would you know the bus came in 5mins and not the 20mins in which the app stated. Ughhhh please fix soon!!!!
By Infallible Opinion
Uber & Lyft prices in one.
By :-: ._.
So accurate I always rely on this app. And now I don’t miss the bus!
My public transit solution 5/5
My public transit life wouldn’t be the same without this app. I cannot overstate how useful it is and how much I rely on it.
Check it: I don’t review apps EVER but I broke my rule for this app because THAT’S HOW AWESOME IT IS.
Seriously, if you rely on public transit in any way, GET THIS APP IN YR LIFE NOW!!!
Always wrong 1/5
I check the transit app in my apartment to see which line to take because I am in between two lines. It is always wrong. When I had to take the bus it was always wrong. This app doesn’t work but then again neither does the green line in Boston.
Don’t Board The Bus Without It! 5/5
Been using this app since Day One. I love having my pass on the phone and renewing it takes about 30 seconds. It is very helpful to have a map showing my bus in real time! When it gets to a certain corner, that’s when I leave work. It’s really a good, helpful app.
What happened? queens buses? 1/5
Where are all the Queens buses now? Suddenly they are all absent? What happened?
Life Saving App 5/5
By Joshua Ochoa
I wouldn’t know when or how to get around San Francisco without this app. I use it everyday and it’s simple and aesthetic.
40 West 5/5
By Archer Artist
Driver having transmission trouble...but kept on going...met my next bus on time. Thank you
Used to be good. 1/5
This app WAS reliable. All these updates and you somehow aren't able to update it when there is a problem w the train! There’s been an alert from 2 weeks ago on one train and other crap have happened where the train isn’t working and delayed and no reports! Save yourself the stress and look for another app.
This app is great 5/5
By Siavash A
That is the my dream transit app. Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!!!!
Monitors you 1/5
By Integrity Review
Sells your location and trip info (which is why you can’t use other apps anymore—thanks mbta for selling us out). Nags nags nags for location. I miss the other apps
Manhattan - NOT WORKING 1/5
January 13, 2019
M34 eastbound showed up at 6th ave meanwhile your app said one M34 is 7 min away and the other 9min - both going east. Why hasn’t his been fixed?! Why doesn’t anyone respond????
This app hasn’t been working in Manhattan the last two days. The times are completely wrong. I was at Allen and Grand waiting for 15sbs northbound last night at 9pm. Big crowd. App said bus coming in 6 min, it was 0 minutes for a good two minutes and bus never showed! Over the weekend, the subway times were completely off. Yesterday, I was waiting for the M2 downtown at 2:10 and the time was off. Just now at 42nd and 5th southbound, fortunately bus came but app shows not coming for 8 min. Please fix!
App for the future, needs a couple features 4/5
By VA Dem
This app is a fantastic route planning tool. It includes the established transit options, and can provide real-time data if supplied by municipalities. There are a few things it can’t do, with good reason, and a few things it should do. Dockless scooter company Byrd just showed up in town, but there doesn’t appear to be a way to add them. The city has regional transit options like Amtrak, mega bus and bolt bus but the app doesn’t seem to think regionally or as a future trip planner. While you can hail an Uber/Lyft from the app, it would be nice to buy a bus pass. It will be interesting to see if the app changes when I travel to include the transit options of other cities
Needs a New UI 4/5
This app is great, very intuitive and helpful for getting you from A to B any way you need. But personally, the UI has way too much going on. It’s not clunky or anything, everything is actually very smooth. There’s just way too much on the screen at once and it makes it hard to me to quickly read the important things that I need to read. That’s about my only complaint
Best thing that happened to my daily commute! 5/5
Honestly this app saves me 2 hours of sleep every time i work thanks guys keep it up! This is the best app in my phone i guess and the best friend of my eyes and soul ! Not always accurate but definitely better than anything i have ever used better than my MTA app etc love you transit app
Love it! 5/5
By Jeffrey Borcean
Transit is incredibly intuitive and helps you make route choices, show you time tables, and much more. Also each release gets a hilarious update log :P
By singh g1
This app is fantastic.it work very well
I m using last 4 years
Bad UI 3/5
The user interface is not very friendly, and it doesn’t automatically remember recent destinations. I made the switch since swiftly went out of service but now I’m looking for another app.
Stop with the bad, corny jokes in Version History 1/5
Stop with the bad, corny jokes in Version History
I’ve used this for 3 weeks never had a bus come on time. Usually late or too early. Time for a real update?
Helpful & Updated tracking 5/5
It makes public transportation easy and accessible based on your location and/or for planning routes. It also tracks buses/trains really precisely. Then, you won’t freeze outside. Awesome!
Need a little tuning 3/5
The train times are wrong a lot recently. A little slow at tracking delays. Gives me a ridiculous route at times no matter what settings of transit I choose.
