Early days, but...

Rail station departures info is poor. Departures are shown as a number of minutes to arrival for the first few services, rather than the timetabled departure time - slows down your ability to identify the train you want. Also, you can't click to see the station stops, all you see is the destination. And you can only see the next 2 hours services. Has the potential to be a great App but first impressions are that it needs more work.

It’s good but Needs a couple more features

I know it’s only in its infancy right now but a couple of features that other companies such as GoNorthWest and Stagecoach have on their apps such as live bus tracking, a search for bus and tram services, Apple Maps integration and 120hz pro motion on supported models would be very welcome additions.

Efficient and useful

Having travelled across numerous operators in Manchester, I always felt that the transport system was fragmented. It is finally great to be able to have an app that can combine and simplify the travel experience . Also prices are cheaper too !! Win win
