Whether you’re commuting to work every morning or just going out with friends, these transport apps will do all the work for you. Everything from planning a trip to giving you real time updates on delays and schedule changes. And here’s the clincher – they’re all free.
Moovit combines live data from their user base and also local public transit operators to give you the best possible estimates on travel times. It is the most used transit app out there, and for good reason. The app will give you live directions, updating you as you travel. It can show you all nearby transport lines along with comprehensive schedules, saving the locations and lines you frequent most – making navigating from A to B easier than ever.
Transit App prides itself on its beautiful user interface and simplicity, requiring no clicks at all to view lines in the vicinity. It lets you see exactly where your bus or train is currently on the map, so you can watch it arrive in real time. Timetables are still available when offline and alarms can be set from within the app. Finally, for when public transport isn’t up to snuff, Transit App gives you estimated time of arrival for the nearest Uber and shows if bikes are available at nearby bikeshare stations.
TripView is another transport app which sets itself apart by allowing you to fuse several different modes of transport together to form your ideal route: buses, trams, ferries, cabs, the whole lot.
