What is “GO”?
When you’ve chosen your route and are ready, you can start your trip by tapping “GO”. In “GO” the app gives you directions based on your location. You’ll see when you need to leave to head to your stop, when your bus is arriving, where to get off or connect, and how to get to your final destination once you exit the bus. You can set the app to send you push notifications as you go along your route. As an added bonus, you’re helping others riders by anonymously sending more accurate location info of the bus you’re riding.
Do I need to let Transit use my location?
Yes, in order to use the main feature of Transit, you need to allow access to your phone’s location services.
What if I just want to look at bus schedules?
Transit’s Main Screen shows nearby lines and your position on the map, with the next real-time departure time at the nearest stop showing without having the tap anything to get basic info. You can tap any of these lines to see the bus routes on the map, launch a “GO” trip on that line, and see the next three arrivals, plus the rest of the schedule.
