Download: Getting Around on Public Transit
Better for the climate, safer and simpler for you
Transportation is the biggest source of climate-poisoning carbon dioxide in the Bay Area. Sharing rides means less of these pollutants in the air. Far fewer people are injured on public transit than while driving or riding in a car. And when the transit trip is over, there’s no need to park – just walk away.

(How do you know when your stop is next? You can tell the driver where you want to get off, or use your cell phone app)

Wayfinders – How do I get there?
Enter your starting address and destination, and select driving, transit, bicycling or walking. A list of routes appears, with an estimate of trip time and cost. A map shows your location, the route, and the destination. If you allow GPS tracking on your mobile, the app shows where you are, the route and destination throughout the trip.
Tracker – When will the bus really show up?
Swiftly is like 511 and Google maps, but uses GPS to locate the actual bus or train and estimate when it will arrive. (Google and 511 use the schedules.) It can suggest alternate routes, too.
Download Swiftly at www.goswift.ly/download/ on your mobile, then to swyftapp.com to select Muni, AC Transit, Caltrain etc. from the list.
