Accurate Travel Time: The travel time that Transit App displays is very accurate. With the app you can launch a bus’s time schedule and launch a map to see where your bus or train is at. The map not only accurately shows your location, but it also shows icons of your transportation as it approaches.
Integrated Trip Planner: If you need to know how to get from one place to another, then the Transit App has got you covered. Just enter your current location and your destination and the app will tell you the best public Transit to get you where you need to go.
Uber Integration: If there is a delay with your public transportation, you can see what Uber cars are near you. If you want a ride you can click to schedule a driver which will make you log into the Uber website. If you have the Uber app on your phone already, then the Transit App will alert the Uber driver of your location.
No Delay Information: The Transit App will let you know about delays with your transportation, but it does not give you any information why there is a delay.
Limited Locations Supported at Launch: Online access for the 3 closest routes is free. Routes farther away than that require a subscription. Offline support is also unavailable with the free version.
No Location Sharing: Other apps offers you the option of sharing your location in order to meet up with a friend. It works like this: you select to meet your friend somewhere, pick a location on a map, and then share the information by email, or other forms of communication. Transit App has no such feature.

With its very accurate travel time, and an integrated trip planner, you can easily plan your trip. Although it does not have some features of other apps, it is a very simple and accurate application, which works well for many people public transportation needs.
