[prMac.com] Adelaide, Australia - Zervaas Enterprises today is proud to announce its newly updated TransitTimes+ app for iPhone, iPad and Android, which adds transit schedules for 15 additional cities to its growing international list. The app now offers convenient bus, subway, ferry, train, and streetcar schedules for over 40 cities in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Designed for both commuters and travelers, TransitTimes+ can quickly show when the next bus or subway is arriving. All data is stored offline so no internet connection is needed once downloaded.
More than just transit schedules, TransitTimes+ shows helpful trip planning information such as the distance to each stop, how long the trip will take, the route on a map, and more. To ensure accuracy, TransitTimes+ uses the official timetable data supplied by transit agencies around the world.
A unique feature to TransitTimes+ is that users can access transportation schedules from as many of the over 40 cities as they like, at no additional charge. Also, after a city's schedule has been downloaded, it can be viewed even when the user is offline.
"The TransitTimes+ app makes it easy to get where you are going quickly and without headaches," said Quentin Zervaas, owner of Zervaas Enterprises, which created the app. "It is perfect for city dwellers and travelers alike."

Trips and stops are saved for quick recall, and can be organized into convenient folders. Users can also choose a unique icon to quickly find each trip.
"TransitTimes+ helps you find your way around, even in an unfamiliar city or neighborhood," Quentin Zervaas said. "You do not have to worry any more about getting lost while taking public transportation."
Inside the app, users can browse by transit line or town. They can also view routes and stops as a list or as pins on a high-quality map. Using the current location, TransitTimes+ can show how far each stop is so users can find the nearest one. Travelers can view a summary of the route or all stops in between to make sure they get on the right bus, in the right direction, and do not miss their stop.
