The Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration announced a partnership with Transit, a mobile app that provides real-time transit information, trip planning, and step-by-step navigation.

Transit riders will be able to receive real-time location and arrival information for every CityLink, LocalLink, and Express BusLink bus in the BaltimoreLink fleet. The app is free and available on both Apple and Android devices.

Riders can also select the GO feature to enable voice alerts and push notifications for their selected route.

Transit is a public transit app and mapping service based in Canada. The app is functional in over 175 cities around the world and offers users real-time data for multiple modes of transportation where available, including bus and rail.
