17 Examples of Transit-Focused Mobile Apps

From Subway Accessibility Apps to Commuter Alarm Apps

— July 17, 2014 — Tech
One of the most natural developments for smartphones are transit-focused mobile apps. Since these devices are carried around as people are on the go, they should be modified to help them navigate through both foreign and native towns. Not to mention make traveling much more efficient so as to save as much time as possible.

Yet instead of solely focusing on the nearest subway station or providing a map of the city, these transit-focused mobile apps also provide helpful tools for specific situations. For instance, handicapped individual can be directed to stations that are wheelchair-friendly while people who always fall asleep on trains and buses can be woken up with a special alarm. There are also transit-focused mobile apps that encourage people to discover the city they are traveling in.
