Add the Transit widgets
A widget allows you to get a glimpse of the information about your commute without opening the app.
On both iOS and Android, you can add a Transit widget to your home screen to be able to see nearby transit options quickly and/or see how long it will take you to get to your favorite destinations.
Here's what this article covers:

Take me to my favourite destination
Do you want to quickly see how to get home? Or to work? Or any of your favourite locations? The Instant ETA widget can tell you how to get there and how long it will take!
Don't see a mode? Check that it's is enabled in your settings. Otherwise, that likely means it's not possible to get there that way.
In this widget, as personal bike and walking are not enabled, these options do not appear in the options here.
To see more details about the suggested route, just tap on the widget. That will take you to the app.
Tips & Tricks
In widget settings, you can customize your destination (or leave it up to Transit magic) and decide which mode you prefer!
Using the Nearby Widget
Use the Nearby widget to easily see transit options close to you. Just tap on the route in the widget to see the opposite direction. Your pinned lines will show up at the top of the list, just like in the app!
Only available on Android
What Happened to the old Nearby Widget on iOS?
Unfortunately, Apple has removed support for the backend that the old Nearby Widget was built on. After numerous bugs began to appear that we could not resolve, we decided to remove the old Nearby Widget altogether. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
