Ratings and Reviews
Brilliant update and so much better than the old iff app (using it for 4+ years) that was so outdated and clumsy. This new app combines the service information and tickets. Its very quick and easy to use, it provides live updates on arrival times, journey planner that tells you which bus to get on. Very Well done.
A crime against the people of Wales
I am shocked to see so many 5 star reviews here. I can only assume that the people of Wales, so used to being offered less than mediocre services ten years behind those of other cities, feel honoured to have the opportunity to finally buy bus tickets digitally. Whoever paid for this app at Cardiff Bus or the council should either be fired or sent on an IT procurement course. Why? It’s like the Lego of apps, nay, the Duplo of apps. Fumbled together to make something that represents a modern service but scratch beneath the service and its clunky, old fashioned and more of a hinderance than an advantage. The only possible advantage is once you’ve set it up you no longer have to scratch sticky 5 pence pieces from the bottom of last winters jacket (or is it coat?) to get exact change for Drive. Pathetic. Sad my capital city’s busses are so poor.
Open the app every 3 days...
Much better than the old app - but as a very occasional bus user the requirement to open the app every three days to ‘make sure my tickets are valid’ is annoying.
If I’ve not activated any tickets why do I need to ‘ensure they are valid’ - I bought them through the app and will activate them when I next use the bus - forcing me to open the app every 3 days, whether or not I plan to use a bus is extremely irritating.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
