Plan a Trip Directly from the Main Screen

In a rush? You can plan a trip to a saved location simply by tapping the instant ETA box at the right of the search bar.

Transit will open the trip planner and display different ways to get to your destination.

Using your current location, saved locations, and time of day, Transit can predict where you’re most likely headed — whether it’s work, home, etc. As you move around your city, the search bar will update to show you estimated travel times to the predicted locations.

Plan a Trip from your Calendar Events

If you have calendar integrations turned on for Transit, you’ll be able to see upcoming events and plan trips directly to them in the app!

Note: To allow Transit to have access to your calendar, go to your Phone settings > Apps > Transit > Permissions (Android) or Phone settings > Transit > Permissions (iOS), and make sure it is allowed for Calendar.

If there is an event in your calendar, you will be able to find a route to it by tapping the calendar icon in the search bar.

You can also tap the search bar to see all events coming up in the next 24 hours (as well as any of your saved locations).
