Transit App is voted best TTC app
What's the best transit app in Toronto? According to readers of this site it's the aptly named Transit App which edged out Moovit and Rocketman in our recent poll. As the winning app, Transit App will be promoted on ttc.ca and officially endorsed by the TTC for the next year.
"We couldn't be more happy that Toronto chose Transit App! We're thrilled the TTC is officially endorsing our app, and we're proud that tens of thousands of the region's commuters use it every day. We look forward to improving the transit experience of many more users in Toronto and around the world," said Transit App Co-Founder and CEO Sam Vermette.
"Transit App is a great tool and we're so pleased to be able to promote it directly to our customers. While the TTC continues to expand information via our website, trip planner and social media we are excited to be able to have our customers get real time information directly to their mobile device via Transit App," said TTC Deputy CEO and Chief Customer Officer Chris Upfold.
Last December, former TTC Chair Karen Stintz proposed that the TTC undertake a contest to help improve customer knowledge of self-serve opportunities with third-party mobile apps using TTC open data. We were happy to be partner with the TTC on this initiative, however, only those apps available for use on both iOS and Android devices were included. All apps work using the GPS feed that TTC provides to Open Data-Toronto.
