St Louis’ Metro Transit announced Transit as the official real-time information and trip-planning mobile application for the St. Louis region’s public transportation system.

With the app, Metro riders can see nearby transit options and departure times in big text and bright colors. Users can easily navigate the region, aided by accurate real-time MetroBus tracking, trip planning, and step-by-step navigation with Transit’s GO feature.

Transit also offers first- and last-mile connections to Metro with its Transit+ feature. For certain trips, Transit will suggest taking an Uber or Lyft part of the way, and connecting with MetroBus or MetroLink service. This first-of-its kind feature allows users to plan, book, and pay for a ride-sharing trip, while getting real-time updates on their Metro connections — all in one app.

Metro joins dozens of other public transit agencies throughout North America that have partnered with Transit, including Boston’s MBTA, Baltimore’s MDOT MTA, Tampa Bay’s PSTA, Silicon Valley’s VTA, and Montreal’s STM.

In addition to helping riders access a comprehensive, easy-to-use and widely adopted app, through this partnership, Metro will also receive usage data and customizations to better serve its riders, such as adding the ability to text, call, or email Metro customer service from directly within the app.
