Uber to Start Offering Riders Real-Time Public Transit Info

Thursday, 18 May, 2017

If you don't have it already, you can download the Uber app using the link below or at APKMirror. The public transit data is being unveiled in collaboration with the Transit app.

Which Uber seems well aware of, as the company has also confirmed that the Transit integration will only kick in when the rider's destination is either at a transit stop, or very close to one (which Uber defines as "a block away").

Uber partners with Transit App for real-time public transportation data.

Uber says that it refreshes the information regularly to ensure it is up-to-date with the most current times - tapping on any of the info will take the user to the Transit app for additional information about things like time disruptions, directions on getting to the public transport, and more.

A viable alternative to personal vehicle ownership since people can always get a ride when and where they need one.

The Sandouville representatives said that disruption would be minimal, as no full production was planned for the weekend. The cyber attack reportedly affected older systems running outdated Windows software.

Potential benefits include reduced traffic and parking, better connected cities, and a viable alternative to personal vehicle ownership, according to Uber.

This also helps demonstrate Uber's mission to make its app more useful once a rider is already in the auto. The full list is at the bottom of Uber's blog post.

"Our integration with Uber is a flawless match, as we both envision a future in which every journey is shared using a combination of transit options", said Transit app chief operating officer Jake Sion in a statement. The flying cars could be a way to clear up the roads.

The integration of the transit data will be available in major USA cities like Philadelphia, Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, New York City and many others. Android users will see the upcoming departure times in their Uber feed, a feature the company rolled out back in November.
