Transit app offers real time information for RIPTA passengers

PROVIDENCE, RI (WPRI) – RIPTA is introducing real-time transit information through the transportation app “Transit.”

Using the Transit app, riders can get accurate arrival predictions of all RIPTA lines, based on the vehicles’ GPS locations rather than on the official timetable.

The app also allows users to watch their buses approach on a map, eliminating wait times at bus stops.

The Transit app is available for both iPhone and Android.
