Arranging transportation can be time consuming, so the Lyft folks crammed the ability to locate and schedule a ride into a simple app. Still, while using a smartphone is easy, even that can take up too much time (work with me here). Now the company has added Android Wear support that lets you request a ride by speaking into your wrist. Stop everything, guys. I think this is as easy as things are going to get.

Greyhound's BoltBus service lets boarders ride without first purchasing tickets from some strange guy at a station. Instead, the company offers its services through this new invention known as the Internet. For a while now, passengers have been able to purchase tickets online for prices starting at a dollar (but realistically hovering around $20 - $40). Now they can do so using a bright new Android app.

Customers can now get their confirmation number and board a bus without having to get their hands on a computer beforehand.

Tycoon-Thumb

Transport Tycoon needs no introduction, but I'm going to introduce it anyway. You see, as popular as this title was, many of us managed to miss it. Actually, that probably doesn't come as much of a surprise. A game about transporting people and products around isn't exactly the easiest sell. Yet if you take the time to dig in, there is a wealth of content here that's sure to hook you for a very long time.
