Transit is our official app!
Transit is our official app for trip planning and real-time bus arrival information! We've also partnered with Swiftly to provide more accurate, consistent, and reliable arrival predictions in Transit, and every place our real-time information is available.
Get the Transit app:
Transit helps to simplify the public transportation experience, by combining real-time arrivals, multimodal trip planning, personalized service alerts, and much more, into a single, easy-to-use app.
Whether you need to check the status of your favorite Big Blue Bus route, get step-by-step directions to someplace new, or simply buy a pass, Transit has you covered!
