Transporter: A Real-time Public Transit App Designed for the Bay Area

Transporter is a novel public transit application for the iPhone, built to help riders get around the Bay Area. Its design is the product of deep user research into how people use public transportation and the difficulties they encounter.  So, say you're standing at a stop and want to know when the next bus is coming. All it takes is two taps to find that out. Once you're on your way, it only takes a tap to see all the upcoming stops and when you'll arrive at any of them. For trips with transfers, Transporter features a real-time trip planner, which uses GPS bus locations to give you an up-to-the-minute travel plan that updates as you go.  Miss a transfer?  Transporter will recalculate the rest of your trip. These are just a few of the many thoughtful features that make Transporter the best public transit app for the Bay Area.
