BC Transit offering bus information on a new app

Want to take the bus? Now there’s an app for that.

BC Transit has endorsed Transit as its mobility app.

Transit is available for use in 18 BC Transit systems, including Prince George. Transit utilizes real-time technology on buses in seven communities, in addition to crowd-sourcing through the app, to provide trip information to customers.

Upon launching the app, BC Transit riders see nearby options and departure times in big text and bright colours. Users can easily navigate the region, aided by accurate real-time bus ETAs, trip planning, step-by-step navigation, and crowdsourced real-time information with Transit’s GO feature.

The introduction of Transit as its endorsed mobility app supports other customer service channels including NextRide (where available), information on bctransit.com, printed information, and customer call centres. BC Transit’s partnership with Transit offers a comprehensive, easy-to-use and widely-adopted app for riders.

Under this agreement, BC Transit will also receive anonymized usage data to improve  planning processes and customizations to better serve the public, such as the ability to send important information directly to riders via Transit’s home screen.
