Transit app coming to Android Wear

Transit for Android WearOne of the best, if not the best transit and public transportation apps, is coming to Android Wear. The original app was developed in back in the Spring of 2013 for Montreal’s subway network. It has since grown to support Android devices as well as over 110 cities across the world, providing not only all kinds of public transit information but also about services like Uber and car2go. After landing on the Apple Watch earlier this year, the Transit app is now headed to devices powered by Android Wear.

Now, whether you’re walking to the stop, waiting for a vehicle, or riding to your destination, Transit App for Android Wear will help you get there. As soon as you check your wrist, you’ll have a list of upcoming departure times right on hand. Which means you won’t have to remove your mitts to open your phone and see when the bus is coming. It means that if you’re lost in the big city you can simply tap the Take Me Home button to get back on track, without having to pull out your phone and stall on the sidewalk.

The Android Wear version of the Transit app was developed by one of Transit’s developers under the tutelage of Samuel Dionne, the developer that first ported the app to Android (getting himself a job at Transit in the process).

If you have used the Apple Watch version of Transit, the Android Wear version will feel very similar. The interface and controls are very similar.

The Transit app is a free download for both Android and iOS.
