Transit GO

Transit has an easy system for using local public transportation routes, outlining your trip step-by-step. You can see which routes are running in your area and choose the best one to get where you need to go.  

  1. On the home page, search for your destination and select it from the results. 
  2. A list of your available options will be displayed, which may often include a combination of transportation modes. Tap an option to preview the trip, and press "GO" on the one that you want to use.  
  3. The app will display your trip, outlined step-by-step, including how much time before the next bus gets to your pickup stop. 

That's it! Now you have your own personal guide to help you navigate your trip. The app will stay running in the background if you switch to another one. If you'd like, you can press the bell icon on the GO screen to set a reminder to head out to the stop.
