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. While browsing the news, Julien also learned that Transit has been named Edmonton’s recommended public transit app by the Edmonton Transit System. Bravo, Transit. 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: - Cape Breton Transit in Sydney, Nova Scotia - Airdrie Transit outside Calgary - Real-time data for the entire bus fleet in Edmonton - Real-time data for GO Transit and Mi-Way in the GTA! Give us 5 stars to make us shine as brightly as Julien’s eyes.

Version 4.1.1 released on December 20, 2016
You know what’s worse than app crashes? Bus crashes. Earlier this month, Montreal had a snowstorm. It was the first of the year, and our slippery roads hadn’t been salted. Cop cars, taxis and buses crashed into one another like a troupe of ballet dancers after six vodkas. And while EVERYONE in Canada heard about the traffic mayhem later that day, many riders were left stranded at their bus stop, wondering why their buses weren’t showing up. With some luck, that will never happen again. Introducing….. Transit Salt Trucks! Just kidding. Introducing….. ~GO CROWDSOURCING~ Bus gonna be late (or early?) You’ll be the first to know. Yes, real-time, up-to-the-second, user-generated departure times are finally here. FINALLY!!! We’re launching in two cities today—Montreal and Victoria—with many more cities launching soon. Here’s how it works: When you launch GO, we won’t just tell you to when to pack up your chickens and head for the bus stop: we’ll track the bus’s location, broadcast it to our server, and predict accurate departure times all the way down the line. Yeah, you heard us right. You + GO = real-time predictions everywhere!!! - Want to feel like Batman? Throw away the cape: just hit GO every time you take transit. We’ll show how many people you’re helping. - Want to feel like an all-knowing god? Hit the Route Map to watch your bus approach in real-time, thanks to the data supplied by your fellow riders. - Want to feel like a dingus? Quit GO before the end of a trip and spoil everyone's fun. Since we launched GO, we’ve been blown away by the number of people using it. And it dawned on us: we could finally bring real-time information to cities that don’t have any (or any *accurate*) official transit agency real-time data. So why not spread the real-time love? To help out your fellow riders, just press GO. Like you already were! We’ll be expanding to new cities very soon. Moving on... ~ALSO NEW IN THIS UPDATE~ - We added real-time data to the Saug (MiWay in Mississauga), the Six (GO Transit in Toronto) and the Gine (Regina) - We promise to never call you the Gine again, Regina. - We added scheduled data for Fort Erie, Pelham, and Niagara-On-The-Lake - We made transit lines a little smoother (go check) - We made GO a little sexier (go check) - We banished all bugs to the lowest rings of hell (go check. Wait actually don’t) At any rate, that’s it for today! If you’re in Montreal or Victoria, tell us how you like crowdsourcing! If you’re not, stay tuned as we start to launch real-time crowdsourcing in more cities :-) PS: please rate us five stars. We’ll be donating your stars to Montreal’s Artisanal Salt Boutique which distills salt from stardust and sprinkles it on our poor unfortunate roads. ===== Found a bug, got an idea, feeling salty?

Version 4.1.3 released on January 13, 2017
Ooooooohweee. What a holiday it’s been. Too much whiskey... too much turkey… too much Netflix. (And not enough chill.) While our app was busy stuffing itself to the point of bursting—some snarky nimble bugs took advantage of its sluggish, inflated state. Well thank heavens for cleanses. Kombucha cleanse. Kale cleanse. Upside-down hot yoga cleanse. We're calling it the All Trends Cleanse. And boy oh boy ain’t it effective. Transit's insides are now as clean as a whistle. As sparkly as cider. And with fewer bugs than an exterminator’s flamethrower. All to say—yes, all the bugs are gone (that we know of.) Hello 2017. And hello New Year’s resolutions: More GO, more cleanses, and flamethrowers galore. Oh, and please rate us 5 stars (because kale can’t grow in the dark.)
