Version 4.2 released on June 06, 2017
You look to the right (it’s a bus stop). You look to the left (it’s a rack of bikes). You look down at your feet (great feet. the best.) Now pick: Which will get you home the fastest? Because you’ve already spent too much time at the bar tonight, drinking spruce beer and soda pops, and now you’re late for your phone call. (Nature is calling.) INTRODUCING: BIKESHARE+WALKING TRIP PLANNER Pick the best mode for any moment. Starting today, whenever you plan a trip, you’ll see ETAs for bike/bikeshare and walking too. (Yes. Finally.) If a long, boring, bladder-testing transit transfer will take longer than biking, we’ll guide you to the nearest bikeshare station. We’ll also give you a-to-b directions to the station closest to your destination. And reminder: in select cities, you can even buy passes and unlock your bikeshare from within Transit—because deep integrations are our thing.™ Unlockable bikes now work in DET, CHI, MTL, TOR, and the following unabbreviatable cities: Louisville, Columbus, Aspen, Minneapolis and Chattanooga. Biking not your style? The trip planner also lets you compare transit and biking with non-pedal bipedal transport. For those who know what boots were made for. ALSO NEW: BRANCH CARDS! Because some transit lines are complex. Maybe they share the same trunk, but stop at different stops (a-to-b-to-c vs. a-to-c) or they end up going to different end-of-line stations (like Boston’s green line, which shoots off into separate B/C/D/E branches). Now in nearby mode, we’ll group together all those different branches into one card, just like you’d see on the departure board at your station. Does this sound hopelessly complicated? No need, bruh—tap the schedule view for your line (clock icon) and enter your destination stop. We’ll tell you which trains, at which times, will get you where you want to go. Easy peasy! Now live in Boston and SF, but don’t worry—you’ll all get your own special cards soon enough. Lastly: (1) bikeshare/walking/Uber results in the trip planner are slimmer than transit, (2) you can now opt out of promo push notifications, (3) wow you are looking fabulous, and (4) we replaced our FAQ with a Help section. It was written by Michelle and Katie, our resident transit oracles, and will illuminate Transit’s deepest, darkest secrets. Like how to use our features. Where the dead bugs go. Or what Julien does with the widget in his free time. Rate us five stars to help us get a restraining order for the widget. PS, say hi to us on twitter! We read all your tweets :) @transitapp PPS, lots of new agencies too: Bustang (Denver, CO), SLE (Southeastern CT), MSTCA (Monterey, CA), GCTGA (Gwinnett County, GA), MAECA (Modesto, CA), and CET (Bend, OR). We’ve also added real-time for PSTA (St. Petersburg, FL), Fairfax Connector (Fairfax, VA), PACE (Chicago Suburbs), Torrance Transit (South Bay L.A., CA), Magic School Buses (worldwide), Sonoma County Transit (Sonoma County, CA) and CET (Bend, Oregon—a place our data team apparently loves.) See you next time!

Version 4.2.1 released on June 09, 2017
-Last update wasn’t updating on iTunes -Fixed.

Version 4.1 released on November 04, 2016
Julien is an iOS developer at Transit. Julien volunteered to fix the widget. Julien doesn’t sleep anymore. Whenever someone asks him what he does for work, he curls up in the fetal position and whispers to himself “try not to cry, try not to cry.” Last week, his neighbour spray painted “n00b” on his front door. For Halloween, his kids dressed up as widgets and made him play hide-and-seek. Over and over, they disappeared, giggling “unable to load” while Julien searched frantically in fear. Today, Julien’s nightmare is over. He fixed the widget. This evening, to apologize to his neighbour, he’s going to mow his lawn. Tonight, Julien will celebrate his victory with his wife, children, and an entire tub of cookie dough. More reasons for Julien to celebrate: - He can now see his vehicle approaching in GO - When he’s feeling “wild”, Julien doesn’t listen to GO, and takes a shortcut through the back alleys. Transit takes note and adapts to Julien’s odd sense of adventure. - Sometimes, Julien likes to race the bus driver and run to the next stop. No problem: GO will update his directions to the stop that’s closest. - Julien likes to plan ahead. Now he can set an alarm for a trip tomorrow morning. - Julien isn’t so good at spelling, but he knows where he’s going. He loves the new option “Choose on Map” that lets him slide the pin to his destination, rather than typing it in letter-by-letter, hoping auto-correct kicks in. In other news, you can now buy bike share passes and unlock bikes in Minneapolis with Nice Ride. But that’s not thanks to Julien. Julien will sleep better tonight knowing that Transit added: - Wheel Trans in Tri-Valley, California - GTrans in Los Angeles - Stanford University’s Marguerite Shuttle in Palo Alto - Real-time for DASH in Washington D.C. - Real-time for Golden Gate Transit in SF Give us 5 stars to make us shine as brightly as Julien’s eyes.

Version 4.1.1 released on December 20, 2016
- Added Prince George County, MD (TheBus) and Mountain View, CA (MVGo) - Started testing a New Mindblowing Secret Feature in Canada which will be coming to your city very soon - Made transit lines a little smoother (go check) - Made GO a little sexier (go check) - Banished all bugs to the lowest rings of hell (go check. Wait actually don’t) Rate us five stars because fear of bad reviews leads to anger, angry reviews lead to hate, hateful reviews lead to suffering, and suffering these terrible Star Wars references is something we will never subject you to again. ===== Found a bug, got an idea, missed your bus and need some therapy?

  • Welcome to the Z world!

    According to a new survey conducted by the French startup Stardust, 50% of the apps published on the App Store and the Google Play can be considered as ‘living dead apps’. Zombies turned out to be extremely popular in Hollywood. From the drama to the comedy, it’s like every single genre has to be zombified at some point. Over the last few years, apps turned to be an extremely profitable business for some companies, but …

  • Apple changes the AppStore algorithm : everything you need to know

    Over the last few years, the AppStore algorithm has been updated a few times without achieving Apple’s goals to ban cheaters and robotic downloads. This summer, Apple finally introduced a new algorithm, entirely redesigned to push forward newer apps with better reviews and reputation… Reputation comes first Until now, download volumes and velocity were the two most important factors for rankings on the App Store. Though, Apple recently changed the App Store algorithms to push …
