The real-time transit app will let you know when the next train, bus, ferry, or tram to your destination will arrive. It always knows where you are located and then you can easily see the services to your destination.
Before getting to a transit location, you can save stops, trips, and routes to see the next services due to depart.
Just tap on a service to track your live trip. It will also show live train and bus load data where available.
And the app has just recently been updated to version 2.0 with a number of new features. The headlining addition is both home screen and lock screen widgets. Both widget types will locate your nearest station or stop and show upcoming departures. You can also select to pin a specific stop to appear all the time.
With Live 3D maps, you can follow a train, bus, tram, or ferry wth a virtual flying camera. That combines the real-time info from transportation agencies and the live GPS data from your device.
The search feature has been improved and now features a full-screen map with live vehicle locations and route lines.
