Company Summary

GoMetro makes commuting on transit awesome again!! We connect transit operators with their commuters much more effectively by using mobile channels of communication. Our multi-platform app gives commuters tailored information on real-time arrivals and departures, current locations of vehicles, early notifications of operational breakdowns and travel disruptions. The platform then also allows operators to communicate intelligently with riders.
