Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good but not great
I’m a Brit living in Finland who visits uk to see family. I use an app called HSL in Helsinki. It’s brilliant allows start and end destinations as addresses or postcodes. Calcs. your route including walking or tram or train. Perfect. And it allows you to buy tickets, please review as a benchmark. This app is ok. But you need to use a different app to pay. You also need knowledge of the stop you need. You cannot even put a postcode of your destination you need google maps to figure that out. So to make a journey I needed 3 apps. Not great. Please take a look at HSL. 😄😄👍🏻
Edit: Much better!!
Metrolink has improved in leaps and bounds these last few years, but the app simply hasn't. Yes, it works for the very basics. However, Google Maps can give Live Times for station arrivals. This app cannot. The only changes this app ever sees, are with the maps. To improve: add push notifications for service changes; location services for relevant information about nearby stops; add live arrival times; add first and last tram times; integrate ticket purchasing into the app. There is so much missing from this app. TfGM need to pull their socks up!
Edit Feb 2018: This app has come on in leaps and bounds since my last review. Live tram info integrated, navigation tools, network status...thank you for this! 🙂 The addition of push notifications would make it a 5-star winner!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the re-review. We are always working towards improving the app and are glad that you are finding the updated functionality useful.
Handy But No Tickets??
Handy little app, it’s so useful to just have a basic, official app with a map, tram times and route planner.
But it would be SO useful to be able to buy TICKETS. The bus and train services all let you buy tickets on their apps, saving paper on all those printed tram tickets which are also easily lost. Please?!
