best transit apps
Public transit is on the rise almost everywhere in the world. In the US alone, public transit is up 34% from 1995. Companies like Uber have revolutionized the space with more flexible (and dare we say, hip and cool) public transit options. Additionally, other companies like Citymapper have made existing transit easier to use. You can find transit apps all over the place that help you find a variety of transportation. Here are the best transit apps for Android.

Citymapper is a good entry point for transit apps. It has support for most things. That includes taxis, subways, trains, ferries, cabs, and even Uber and Lyft. You can also get departure times, alerts, step-by-step directions, and offline maps in some areas. It covers about a dozen cities in the US, a few in Canada, over a dozen in Europe, and a few in Asia and Australia. People interested can vote to have their areas eventually covered. It’s not perfect for everybody. However, it’s a good start.


Moovit is another one of the most popular transit apps out there. It supports over 1,400 cities. They also boast that they add a new city every 18 hours on average. It doesn’t provide rides on its own. However, you can use it to find train schedules, bus schedules, subway schedules, trams, and more. You can then use that info to get to your destination. It even has unique stuff like bike sharing for those days where you want to ride. Most people have good experiences with this one. We recommend you try this one out first.
