Transit is a public transport app that works pretty nicely with Voiceover but has some nice features for people with low vision too.
It works in many countries around the world. I’m filming from Melbourne, Australia so some of my examples pertain to our public transport network.
With Transit you can:
- immediately see which public transport is closest to you and how soon it will depart
- Plan a journey to an address or landmark
- Be given warning alerts and notifications when traveling that you are approaching your destination stop.
- Simulate a destination to find out what public transport is nearby

I am creating a series of tutorials about this app. This first one outlines the layout of the main screen.
