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!

-Last update wasn’t updating on iTunes -Fixed.

Misconception: Iceland is full of ice Fact: Iceland is -10% ice -70% grass -9% Björk -100% supported in Transit Halló Reykjavík! We now support public transit and unlockable bikeshare for all you biking vikings. “But what if I don’t have viking blood coursing through my veins?” Fear not, noble bus-taker. For we hath made it easier to set Home + Work locations from the search screen AND removed those vexing 5 hour walks from the trip planner. Rate us 5 stars to get the Sigur Rós translation of these notes. (Or tweet us @transitapp if any bugs have invaded your homestead.)

Version 4.2.3 released on July 06, 2017
We recently tried to get around New York City. We had an existential transit crisis in New York City. Today we’re introducing some changes— just for you, New York City. Brooklynites! Manhattadors! Queensians! Bronxophiles! Those rare, upstanding citizens of Staten Island! We know the MTA is certifiably-flippin-bonkers this summer. We feel your pain. We know your struggle. On our monthly jaunts to NYC we bless ourselves thrice before taking the subway and can only imagine what it's like, riding it every day. New Yorkers: You are resilient. You are incorrigible. You are FAST-LIVIN, DREAM-CHASIN, SKYSCRAPER-ERECTIN’ AMERICAN BEAUTIES! So leave it to us Canadians to provide you with your daily dose of transit relief, eh. Step 1: any time there are weekend subway disruptions (aka always) check our trip planner. We incorporate all those crazy MTA service changes into our app so you’re never sent on goose chase to The Rockaways. Step 2: Today we're launching crowdsourced data on MTA buses. To all those lettered line subway riders: we’ve been crowdsourcing your subway data for a while. Well now we're in the bus business too. Whenever you use “GO”, you’ll be broadcasting super-precise vehicle locations all the way down your line. With GO enabled, you help generate better, faster, more accurate ETAs than the MTA’s own system. Because your transit data should be updated in New York minutes—not New Orleans ones. (Still love you NOLA.) Thousands of you swashbuckling subway riders already press “GO” every day. Now, NYC’s bus surfers can finally join your heroic ranks. (You can now crowdsource OCTA buses in Orange County, CA too—if you want to do some actual surfing.) New Yorkers: rate us five stars to tell Governor Cuomo to FIX THE DANG SUBWAYS!!! Everyone else: rate us five stars to tell your Governor to BUILD SOME DANG SUBWAYS!!! More GO crowdsourced goodness coming to your city soon—don't despair. Questions? Hit us with a tweet @transitapp.
