Transforming Travel with the Transit App
In partnership with Transit, WPBgo has elevated every resident and visitor in Palm Beach County to Royale status, granting access to comprehensive routing, arrival, and capacity information on all transit routes and bikeshare stations. The Transit app is celebrated for its user-friendly interface and has been tested in over 300 cities worldwide. Its features include real-time information about public transportation, rideshares, and other modes of travel, along with a trip planner that suggests combining multiple options like buses, bikes, scooters, Tri-Rail, and Uber to reach destinations on time. This integration empowers users to compare various travel options and confidently navigate car-free.

The Benefits of Crowdsourced Data
Transit’s unique crowdsourcing features have significantly enhanced real-time transit information, making it a valuable tool for commuters. Through the “GO” feature, users share their vehicle locations in real-time, which has proven effective in 175 cities, including major urban centers like New York City. This crowdsourced data provides hyper-precise updates, updating vehicle locations every 10-30 seconds. The high user density in these cities ensures the reliability of the data, helping users avoid outdated information and making their commutes smoother and more predictable​.
