How To Use Transit App

Here are some helpful tools for using Transit to track your bus, plan your route, pay your fare and ride with ATA Bus! 


ATA Bus and Transit: ATA Bus’ Official Plan, Track and Pay App

Download Transit on your Apple or Android device to get started!

Plan a Trip:

Download Transit for quick and easy trip planning with step-by-step directions. The app will notify you when to leave for your trip, when your stop is coming up, and even suggest alternatives if you miss your ride.

Track your Ride:

Transit keeps you informed with accurate arrival times and map-based vehicle locations. So you can relax while you wait for your ride knowing your vehicle is on its way. For many vehicles, Transit provides real-time crowding information, displaying “Not crowded,” “Some crowding” or “Crowded.” 

Pay the Fare:

Forget paper passes and pocket change! Purchase any fare or pass with just a few taps in Transit. The app makes it easy to keep track of your pass expiration date, and lets you buy rides for yourself or the whole family.
