It started with one question: “When will my ride get here?” Four years later, we’ve built North America’s favourite transit app and helped millions of commuters to navigate their cities without losing their minds. We dream of happier communities, where multiple modes work together and getting from A to B with Transit is simpler than climbing into a car. Our cities came long before the car, and will still be around after all the cars are gone.
