Zoute for iPhone for Public Transit
Many of us use our cars to drive to work and get things done. If you are lucky to live in a city with a great public transportation system, you can rely on trains and buses once in a while to get things done. It might take you a bit of time to get used to how the transportation system in your area works though. Zoute for iPhone is one of many apps that can help in that regard. It helps you identify bus stops and subway routes closest to you. It provides you with detailed schedules, so you can avoid missing your train.
Zoute currently works in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and a few other major cities. It provides you with route maps, stop sequences, and schedules to help you get used to the public transportation system of your city. Users can keep track of their favorite destinations and stops. The app shows you nearby stops as well as alternative routes, so you can decide how you want to get to your destination.
We had a good amount of success using this app in Philadelphia. It is clean, user-friendly, and stable. We would move to see more cities covered though.
