Get from A to B with less OMG. Toronto’s favourite free transit app 🚀

Rocketman is Canada’s favourite transit app, and Toronto loves it too! Made in Canada, we give Toronto riders real-time information for TTC, GO Transit and UP Express buses, streetcars, and trains.

You can view real-time crowding for buses and schedules, track the streetcar you need to get on along its route, save your most frequent stops, and get transit delay alerts delivered right to you, all from Rocketman’s simple interface.

We show you the information you need to know to get to your destination with minimal wait time, and preferably on time—though, full disclosure, we’re not magic. We can’t make the buses go any faster, but we can give you a heads-up to see how busy the next bus is with real-time crowding.

Getting around in Toronto is much easier and painless with Rocketman at your side!

Getting around in Toronto is much easier with Rocketman at your side!

Toronto was the first Canadian city to install a subway in March 1954, with the first official subway line in Canada being the Young Street line. To date, there is only one other subway in Canada, Montreal Metro.

Toronto’s a great city to get around if you don’t have a car, and some of the best places to visit are easily accessible via transit. Need some inspiration, check out these unique Toronto spots:

  • You can catch a TTC bus right out front of the Royal Conservatory of Music on Bloor Street.
  • Grab food, drinks and shop in Toronto’s historic Distillery District; you can access transit options through the nearby Distillery Loop.
  • A short 2-minute walk from the Davenport Rd at Walmer road will get you to Toronto’s Historic Casa Loma museum.
  • Immerse yourself with a day of history at Black Creek Pioneer Village, which has plenty of transit options through the nearby Pioneer Village Station

This helps us display alerts as soon as delays occur and makes sure you know when you need to be at your stop. Of course, this means that you need to have an internet connection through Wi-Fi or a data plan to effectively use Rocketman.
