Web Buzz: Transit App helps users navigate public transportation
Takes the guesswork out of public transportation at home and abroad.
Name: Transit App
What it does: Tells you how to get from Point A to Point B using bus, train, metro, ferry, Uber and other transportation options in 127 metropolitan areas in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia and Kenya.
Available: In the App Store, requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. In Google Play, requires Android. Offers Apple Watch and app for Android wear.
What’s not: It was much easier to use if I needed to find transportation for the near future. When I tried to plan travel for a trip to London this summer, it got trickier. It would also be nice if there were price comparisons for routes. If they were in the app, I couldn’t find them when I was testing it on an iPhone 6 Plus.
