Go To Best 10 Transportation Apps
  1. Learn the different types of transportation.
  2. Find out what public transportation your city provides.
  3. Find great deals on new and used cars.
  4. Learn how to take care of your car properly.
  5. Get connected to people you can carpool and ride share with.

As society moves toward new trends in methods of getting around, it can really benefit someone's life to understand the different types of transportation. Many people only think about cars as a method of transportation, but you might be able to open up a whole new world of travel by embracing all the different types. The department of transportation stresses the importance of each city having multiple types of transportation such as the bus, railway, and taxi system. Everyone needs ways to get around and various ways to travel. These transportation options are essential in times of crisis and natural disasters like hurricane evacuations and flood warnings. Society's need for transportation is apparent in its development. Governments have always put a large emphasis on the quality of roads, railways, and traffic laws. Understanding all the various kinds of transportation can open up your travel opportunities immensely. 

Along with more ways to travel, understanding the different types of transportation could help make your life more convenient on a daily basis. Each city provides public transportation services that citizens can use to their advantages. For instance, since cars and car insurance can be so expensive, it's very difficult for many people to have access to their own car. The bus and transit system could help people find a way to work without relying on their own car. Many people take a bus to the train station, the train to a different part of town, and then take another bus to get to work until they can afford a car. This is a widespread issue across many countries, so if you're in search of mobile apps regarding transportation, you should find ones that give you access to the best bus routes and subway options to get around. 

Another helpful tool that technology, namely mobile apps, could help you with is finding out how to get great deals on new and used cars. Since taking the bus and train to and from work every day is not an ideal situation for most people, finding ways to get a car-buying education could be an essential tool. There are a number of different ways to acquire a car, and mobile apps can help show the best-suited ways for you and your specific financial situation. From buying or leasing a brand new car to buying a used car, there are a lot of options that vary with someone's budget. Some people need an education on the best ways to go about finding a good deal on a new car since the process can be so intimidating. With sketchy used car salesmen and dealerships' false promises on interest rates, car-buying is not something you want to do without help at your side. Educational and helpful mobile apps could be your secret weapon to a great deal. 

So, once you have the right car, you'll want to check out a variety of mobile apps that could give you tips on car maintenance and the most essential services to help the life and longevity of your car. Mobile apps for car owners should supply a schedule of when you should have certain services done on your vehicle, like having your tires rotated or changing the oil. These apps should also steer you in the direction of the best mechanics and automobile repair shops near you along with providing quotes on services so that you can compare prices and choose the right one for you. With the right mechanic, you might be able to use an app that could keep you updated on the status of your repairs and maintenance while it's in the shop so you can plan on the best pickup time. Taking care of your car is a crucial part of being a car owner, and mobile apps can be your guide to a happy and healthy life for your ride. 

Yet, sometimes having a car just isn't enough. You drive to work every day. You sit in traffic, and sometimes you feel like you spend more money on gas commuting than you even make at work. For people who share this sentiment, there are mobile apps available that can help you connect with others for ridesharing opportunities. Having a group of people to carpool with can save you just as much money on gas as you would paying for a bus ticket, and it's a really fun way to make new friends. With apps that provide background checks and chances to talk to potential candidates online before sharing a ride, you'll feel comfortable once you get in the vehicle and carpool down the road. Ridesharing is one of the latest trends toward helping reduce CO2 emissions, help create better traffic conditions, and save yourself a ton of money. So why not let mobile apps show you the way?

Transportation has and always will be a pivotal part of society, and transportation mobile apps can be an essential tool for you to find convenient ways to travel, commute, take care of your vehicles, and save yourself some money.

    Maven - Car Sharing
    • I have tried almost every other car sharing app, and every time I come back to Maven! They have great customer service, easy to navigate app, up to date cars, and great customer service. I’m almost 21 so it’s hard to find a car sharing service that will rent to me and Maven has decent prices just wish they had more compact/sedan cars available sometimes but besides that no complaints. A word to the wise make sure where ever you are going with the car has good internet connection or you are not able to lock/unlock the car.

    • Curb saved my trip to the airport this morning when uber/Lyft were all 15+ minutes away. Downloaded the app, took 2 minutes to sign up, and my driver was 3 minutes away. I definitely prefer taxi drivers as they know what they’re doing on the road (even if the cost is sometimes more expensive) so I’m excited to have this app on my phone for the future!

    Uber
    • I have had a stroke and I lost all my side vision so I cannot drive no more and I rely on my wife to drive this last Friday she collapsed from a blocked bowel. And I had no way to get up to the hospital and back or for that matter to go anywhere that I needed to go. I had no other options available to me no one to drive me places I needed to go but my daughter had set me up with Uber and I have all the independence and mobility I need with just a touch my phone. My license is not that important anymore in fact Uber is even easier than driving I will be able to get into a warm car in the winter and a cool car in the summer and I am no longer worried about needing to go somewhere and not being able to drive. Uber has been a lifesaver for me literally and has given me total independence from having to depend on anyone else me and my wife will be using Uber a lot in the future and and the price is extremely reasonable I don’t write these things very often in fact I don’t remember ever writing a review but Uber has provided me independence to go anywhere or do anything without having to pay car insurance or car repairs or car payments. I am so grateful for Uber.

    Lyft
    • I am legally blind with a very limited vision. As a result, I can not drive. So, I frequently use services of Lyft. Since Lyft is accurate with it’s GPS and prompt, I love Lyft though they don’t give me any offers. I just have one suggestion that Lyft developers should add in app communication with the driver which will be even easier for people like me having vision issues and who use ipad (for reading convenience due to its bigger view and font size compare to any phone) for Lyft app and Separate phone. Also, Lyft should also start accepting travellers having Voip numbers such as “Magicjack” numbers which is very convenient. If Lyft starts accepting “Magicjack” numbers, then I don’t need to have a separate phone and can therefore get rid of my phone which I use mainly for lyft communications. I am not comparing but Uber accepts traveller having Magicjack numbers which is why I find it more convenient and use it more frequently these days. I hope Lyft management will consider these 2 things. Thank you.

    • I love C2G. They’ve been committed to ensuring satisfaction and fairness. They’ve let me slide and also informed me when I was fxcking up and I can respect that. Been rolling with them for a couple years now and I don’t regret it one bit. Although they could be more keen on maintenance when it comes to their fleet, they’ve still been very sharp in regards to customer service and even adjudication. I HIGHLY recommend C2G.

    • So far so good! Still in my first month, but I’ve reserved cars probably 5ish times both weekdays and weekends. It’s obvious the actual (advertised as ‘estimate’) prices are based on demand, but I get the feeling it’s pretty heavily relying on generalizations rather than actual data based demand. I don't use public transportation, but for those who do I think this is a no brainer. Getting to the car otherwise factoring in the cost of time (walking for example) and for me, taking a Lyft. I am a single mom with a 7 month old baby who travels with me using Zipcar since I value both our lives and prefer the responsibility of getting us around Los Angeles safely rather than trusting strangers (public transit or Lyft drivers). PS I’ve had more positive experiences with dog friendly drivers than baby friendly 🤔 Anyway unless they update their features to allow separate pick-up and drop-off parking spots, I don’t plan on remaining a member due to the carseat switches which I can avoid by using traditional rentals. Otherwise I’ve had excellent experiences, great cars, clean, fast customer service.. it’s really so close to perfect!! 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

    Turo - Better Than Car Rental
    • All these people complaining about shady policies and hosts. These people are putting their personal property on the line for the benefit of others to use. The application has set up policies to ensure that they have the car owners backs when renting out their automobiles. If you don’t read the policies then it’s your own fault for not spending a few moments to get familiar with how Turo operates. So if you have a problem with being accountable and documenting the cars condition before and after a trip (like every car rental agency does FOR YOU) then stick to Enterprise or Budget car rental. You are paying more money to agencies like this because they do this legwork for you. In my experience Turo was extremely easy to use, and my first host was very accommodating and professional. In my unattended car rental scenario: I washed the car as if it were my own, went around the car and took pictures corner to corner, bumper to bumper, took a picture of the gauge cluster full of fuel and noting the mileage, left the key in the provided lock box and went on my merry way. Easy peasy.
