Transit’s Apple Watch App Returns After Two Years

Two years after pulling it from the App Store, Transit has re-launched its Apple Watch app with significant improvements and tons of new features. The new app also provides details when trips are wheelchair-accessible. 

The popular public transportation tool is now a native app and offers details like arrival times, future arrivals, and a map indicating where to go.


“There are more fun things coming but you’ll have to wait till the next episode,” note the developers. Below are the full release notes of the new Transit Apple Watch App:

  • The Apple Watch app is back! Get your bus/metro times on your wrist — like a boss
  • Or keep rocking that $12 purple transparent Casio, first gen iPod & T9-powered flip phone — like our copywriter
  • Wheelchair-accessible trips & stops are now highlighted when you tap a transit trip in the trip planner
  • Open the app: the “closest” transit lines have always appear at the top…
  • …but in this version, we have redefined our definition of “closest”
  • We used to assume the “closest” distance was “as-the-crow-flies”
  • Focus group discovered only 3% of Transit users are birds
  • We now sort transit lines by how close they are by ACTUALLY WALKING THERE
