It's 2016, so you're right to question why do we still need dedicated public transportation apps for each city we're in. This is especially inconvenient for frequent travelers that find themselves in different places all the time! Thankfully, the right people – the ones able to conjure a solution to the problem – have been asking the same thing, too. And when they had enough of asking around, they developed Embark. This app covers the public transportation in over 60 cities across 15 countries with live, real-time tracking. You can tap on any stop or station to learn if the bus you're waiting for is arriving on schedule, or running late.
Moreover, Embark includes a feed of trending web content to give your brain something to chew on while waiting at the stop. And Apple Watch owners will love that Embark lives on their wrist, with the app showing the next bus, train, tram or ferry's arrival at a glance.
The app is free to use and can be downloaded on Android and iOS.
