Mobile Devices and Transit Apps

Metro Transit offers its own mobile app for Android and iOS. The Metro Transit app lets you plan your trip, see real-time departure information for buses and trains and buy transit tickets all on the go.

Additionally, Metro Transit's website has a responsive design that works on all devices, including mobile phones and tablets. The mobile site features the same great tools and content as the desktop site including news, schedules, retail store, Trip Planner and NexTrip. NexTrip is also available in a text-only format. You can save your most-used NexTrip results for quick access later on. In your browser, just bookmark results for your desired stop and save the link to your home screen. 

For app developers

Metro Transit and regional data are publicly available at Minnesota Geospatial Commons for app developers to use.

NexTrip real-time departure information is available for third-party developers. Click for the NexTrip data feed at

Developers have created a number of apps and mobile-friendly web sites to share schedule and route information which are listed below. Metro Transit does not sell or endorse these applications or endorse the quality or accuracy of any particular app.
