- Digital single ticket now also available
- Automatic pass renewal

- Personalised transport updates via push message
- Trip planning for trains and suburban railways available with a BKK-pass

Ratings and Reviews
Works but a tad slow
App works nicely, I bought my pass without issue. However the loading time when I need to use the QR scanner or to show my pass is long and stressful sometimes. I have to tap the widget at least 10 seconds before I get to the bus or ticket controllers and that awkward staredown you have to do with the bus driver while I'm letting them know I DO have a pass the app is just loading is pretty bad. If the app was faster with the launching of the camera and the location services, it would get the 5th star. Nevertheless it's convenient, just make sure you have your phone charged at all times.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. We are constantly working to improve the app and make it work faster. However, what you're typing seems extremely long, so please report the problem by shaking your phone in the app's bug reporting interface so that our developer colleagues can investigate the issue. Thank you!
Slow QR processing
Sadly, the image processing is way slower than the one in the “Mobiljegy” application.
With this, I actually need to stop for seconds (and block the way in the meantime) to read the QR codes, while the other app finishes within a blink. (Tested on the same 13 mini.)
Payment process could be better
For someone who rately uses public transport it is awesome, however it would be nice to have an Apple Pay integration instead of Simple Pay as the 2-step authentication is not something you can call seamless and out of 3 purcheses 1 wasnt proccessed on the first try.
This is unacceptable from a UX perspective as its still faster to use a vending machine with the long payment processing times. Not something you can purchase one the go.
