Your Transit Companion Tool

Getting around on public transit can be extremely frustrating if you don’t have accurate schedules and maps of all the different routes and schedules. By having this information you can assure that you get around to all your destinations on time and in a timely manner taking the shortest most convenient route available. Many of the largest cities in the United States are supported by the app and feature real-time data from other users and operators of the transit system. This is actually a community-driven cooperative tool that gives you the opportunity to benefit from what other users have to share and you can also give back to the community.
