GO Transit Mobile App

GO Transit launches mobile app with help from Ryerson

GO Transit has joined the mobile game with launch of their official smartphone app, GO Mobile. The product of a partnership between Ryerson University and the transit provider, the app was designed by six of the school's students and one recent grad in the Digital Media Zone, a start-up incubator out of which a lot of exciting stuff has been coming of late.

Available on all three of the main platforms — iPhone, Android and Blackberry — the app has should make life a bit easier for commuters by locating the nearest station to a user, scheduling information for specific routes, real-time information from track-level at Union (maybe the best feature), and arrival alerts when one's train is nearing their destination station (i.e. no more sleeping through your stop).

It's all quite useful stuff that should help to make commuting a bit less painful. As a bonus, the app is actually quite nice to look at (even though I've never been a huge fan of GO's branding), and works lightening quick on my iPhone. And, of course, the best part is that it's free.
