How do I use Transit?
When you first open the app, it uses your location to pinpoint the bus routes that pass closest to you.
TIP! Be sure to allow Transit to access your location data during the installation process.
The route display provides pertinent information such as the route name, direction, and stop name. Swipe left or right on a route to change direction. When you see the flashing real-time icon, that means there's a GPS tracker on the bus providing accurate arrival time information.
TIP! Since real-time arrival is based on current bus location, real-time displayed may change depending on traffic conditions.
Planning Your Trip
Transit has a built-in Trip Planner to give you easy-to-use directions:
Enter a destination by tapping the green search bar on the home screen. Select your route to get more details.
If you want Transit to notify you exactly when you should start walking to catch the bus, launch the GO feature
GO provides step-by-step guidance for your whole trip. GO will recommend when to leave to board, tell you how many stops until your destination, and push notifications when you are approaching and have arrived at your destination.
