App Reviews

  • My go-to app every single time I hop on a bus

    5
    By Ramsay Ashwin
    This app is truly amazing with all the capabilities that it has. I live in Los Angeles and it accurately depicts all the lines, with the majority of them having real time predictions. This is always the first app I check when planning a journey anywhere. I love the feature to turn and off minimizing walking because sometimes I take my bike with me on my trips, and I can do portions of the trip on my bike. The only problems that I would have with this app is that recently it has been showing very few busses with real-time info. The majority of times have just been the scheduled times. I immediately jumped to the conclusion that this wasn’t the app’s fault, but I checked other apps like Citymapper and it did have real-time predictions for the exact same bus. Furthermore, half the time I click GO, it doesn’t show the happy face in the top left corner, meaning that I’m not providing real time information back to the system. I’d love to help more but if it doesn’t let me there is nothing I can do. The reason I am still rating this five stars is because I would still use this app over any other one I have.
  • Used to be more accurate

    5/5/18 update: First, thanks to the developer for responding to my original review. I’m not sure what good screen shots would do, but here’s a specific example from last week Monday, morning: I got to the bus stop and checked your app for the arrival of the next bus. It said 19 minutes and that the last bus had gone through four minutes earlier. Instead if waiting such a long time, I opted to jump in a shared bike that happened to be parked nearby. No sooner than I’d pedaled all of a mile (about five minutes later) and, whoosh, the bus goes flying by. All of relevant buses appearing in the schedule were displaying with the GPS tracking indicator, but none of the times was accurate. Maybe you could query Valley Transit about their useless signalling. ______________ I have relied upon this app in the Phoenix metro area for going on two years and consider it an essential part of my commute and even incidental use of public transit. However, it seems that recently it’s less accurate, even for buses that are supposedly being tracked with GPS. I’ll keep using it, because I really like its user interface and features, but I’m hoping, a lot, that the accuracy of arrival times improves—soon.

    Whenever I see a noob on campus waiting around for a bus or shuttle, looking mad lost, I nine-times-out-of-ten pull out my Transit app and let them know how long they’ll be waiting, where the vehicle is at that moment, and that this app is great for this sort of thing. I love it. Seeing the essentially live updating, “[bus was at this location 43seconds ago]”, being able to quickly reference bus schedules for my favorite lines, being able to plan my trips and decide what the best way is to get somewhere... the only downside to all this convenience is that my calves would probably be stronger without it. My only issue is with loops (like campus shuttles), where it tells the user there’s some last stop/to get off there, and I can’t seem to figure out a way to make it so that I can set my destination to a later stop. It might be nice to designate ends of lines in a different color or something, and let the user know there might be a wait at this-or-that stop. Ultimately though, that’s chump change. I love this app. I can finally trust public transportation (or at least, this app).
  • Was a 10 star before update.

    For the past two year I have thoroughly enjoyed your app. Unfortunately that ends today. I understand that you are trying to keep up to date with the advancement in technology but does that need to sacrifice the quality of the app? The app is done beautifully. The colors are vibrant and the advancements are enjoyable; but it’s not reliable anymore. I use to be able to pin point the exact time I would make it to my destination. Literally. I was able to press on a stop on the line and see what other train or buses run in that area. I was also able to then see their arrive time and predict which route would be faster to me. A for some reason that all has vanished over night. The app was so amazing that I made sure that everyone I’ve ever come in contact with downloaded the app; as well as many tourists. I live in New York city so the train are extremely important to us as well as the ability to predict our arrive time. In a city that is heavy controlled by delays of “train traffic ahead” or “sick passengers” we rely on apps like yours to help us get through the subway storms and to our destination quickly and safely. You can change the formula but please don’t sacrifice the quality.

    I used to use this app regularly for years until the recent update. I hate it. There’s honestly nothing from this update that makes me go “ahh I’m glad they added that.” Besides the design change. Here’s one of my issues: I used to be able to select a bus from the home screen, then the route would pop up on a map and I could just zoom in on the map to select a stop and then it would show me all the times the bus comes to that particular stop. NOW, to see the times a bus comes to a particular stop, not just a stop nearby...I have to search for the bus in the search bar, then after selecting I have to scroll through all the stops to find the stop I’m looking for(instead of just zooming in and selecting on the map), then when I select the stop it only shows the next three times, so I have to click again to see the entire schedule! I know this is first world problems and there’re people out there who have far worse things going on in their life, but honestly why change something some simple to something complex??? just extra steps that aren’t needed.
  • definitely a one stop shop

    I’m from the DC metro area but I go to college in NYC and I use the same app in both places, it works accurately in either city. If you’re serious about shaving minutes off your commute then I don’t really know what your needs are, but as someone who just wants a 2-5 minute buffer when I’m checking when my bus comes, this app is incredibly accurate and fits my needs perfectly. Currently using it in DC and the app even shows me real-time where I am on my own bus, including upcoming stops. I was wary about this feature because I use a line that has a lot of minor stops that are really closely spaced, so I thought that by the time the stop showed up on the Transit screen my bus would have already missed it, but it was accurate down to me seeing us pass the stop as the app said we were going by it. I love this app and unless some update makes it ridiculously hard to plan travel on it or something, I plan on using it for a very long time!
  • Much Better than others; plus a suggestion.

    5
    By Daniel Benedict
    This app deserves all Five Stars because it is so useful. While it is useful, there have been errors just like with Google maps and similar apps. Sometimes the errors might be from the transit agency providing the data, but sometimes it appears that the app is using old data or some other problem; such incidents can verified thru other apps, the transit agency or even the fact I am on the bus in question. This type of situation is what I would like to make a suggestion about. It seems to happen often enough that I am on a bus or train when I am trying to determine my best route; yes, when trying to route, it would be better to be sitting still, but with the train or bus, that is not an option. Sometimes, the bus I am on is going to get the next stop at say 830am; the app thinks I won't be able to catch that bus, so it offers the next bus which gets to the same stop 15 minutes later at 845am; that 15 minute difference eliminates the possibility of better route due to a missed transfer. So my suggestion is a button on the route listing which allows you to tell the app that you are on a specific route, and which direction you are going; this option would help the Transit App jump even farther ahead of other apps in the excellent usefulness it provides. ----- Thank you staying with my long message and happy travels to all of you, Daniel Benedict
  • Truly one of the BEST apps out there

    5
    By marcopolo581
    Now as a tech savvy enthusiast, I always aim to test out dozens of apps just to know what works and what just simply doesn’t work. For a while, transit slowly but surely growing and over the past 4-5 years, as a New Yorker, I can confidently and how heartedly say that this app is truly one of the best apps out there! -Subway countdown clocks? Pffft, who needs them? TRANSIT has been RIGHT for the arrival of trains for the past 2-3 years now (mark my words, and I’m very avid on time frames). -When there’s incidents affecting your line, guarantee you won’t hear it on the news, but you’ll definitely get an alert with Transit, whether you’re in the app or not. -If you’re not sure how to find a certain subway stop, TRANSIT slays at showing you markers where you are exactly located and when to leave in order to catch that train you just aren’t quite sure is still running or not (even if it’s every 20 min on the weekends late at night) 2 things: I would LOVE to see an integration for Juno, VIA, and ARRO/ CURB apps as well, it would truly make this app even more unique and stellar. Also, there’s an amazing app called iTransNYC and I would LOVE if Transit integrated their app and notification styles with them. Before Transit, iTransNYC was my go to app. Would be really great if a great app got picked up by an even greater app. Transit is already slaying other NYC subway applications. Why look any further? :-)
  • Unintuitive Redesign

    2
    By MsQueenn
    I like the crowd-sourcing feature and being able to watch the bus approaching in real time, but the redesign makes for a super frustrating app. It takes too many taps and swipes to navigate that aren’t all obvious. For instance, checking the complete schedule of a Line while currently in a GO session. It’s not very obvious that you have to swipe down the GO session to get to the schedule list of nearby lines. And I liked how previously, on the same line, you could see the ETA of the next bus as well as what time that would be. Now you HAVE TO look at the full schedule to then get only the bus arrival times and not ETA. It’s a broken experience and quite annoying at that. My other issue with the new full schedule list is that the earlier bus times were removed. I actually found it useful to see which arrivals have already passed. At least seeing one or two past arrivals would be helpful. Please incorporate these features back into the app so I could give the star rating this app really deserves. I use it every day and hate to have less than an awesome experience.
  • Not as good as it used to be

    2
    By Sean1ro
    I used to really enjoy this app. Some things made it less usable in the latest iterations. First, based on the schedule, if a train has departed from a station, I can’t click on to check the schedule; I have no idea when my train will get to my destination, nor can I see if we are on time at the en-route destinations. Sometimes the train is two or three minutes late, and I want to see details, but can’t. Second, before, the entire schedule for the entire day could be displayed if need be. This functionality has been deleted; it only shows trains going forward, which, again, prevents me from checking the schedule of the train once I am on the train. Finally, since I’m a NYC area user, the train is often underground and this I have no signal. I am certain that the older versions uploaded more nearby train schedules, so deep underneath the East or the Hudson Rivers, my connecting schedule will be available. This is no longer the case. I have reverted to using multiple other apps that can accomplish the same thing, but it definitely is not as convenient.
