For any of our readers who have used iOS and also use public transportation, the name Transit may come to mind. It’s a highly rated, highly effective, and thorough app that shows public transportation schedules for over 40 cities. If you’ve come to Android, but miss Transit, your days of waiting are now over as Transit has made its way to Android.
For those who have never heard of or used Transit, it’s an application that shows you various routes for pretty much all of your transportation needs. These include buses, trains, and subways. They are available in a number of major cities, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, Washington DC, and several cities in Mexico, Canada, and even Paris, France. Here are some features mentioned by their official website.
So if you’re a big fan of public transportation and you live in in one of their supported cities, then this is a great app for you. It would likely have even been added to our best traveling apps list. If this looks like something for you, click the download button below to check it out on the Google Play Store. Did we mention it’s free?
Users of older phones will want to know it can’t be sent to SD card and requires Google Play service to run clogging internal storage. (These ought to be standard information items in the Play Store boxes.) I’ve been pretty happy with Google Maps in the browser, which has good transit connection data for larger Canadian cities and doesn’t clog storage.
