There are too many buttons you have to press to get to a map to track a bus. It is also somewhat annoying to have to select Inbound/outbound then a stop. It would be nice if there was just a button to see the route map and vehicle location in realtime in one press instead of multiple menus you have to dig through. It is also very limited when you are at a stop with multiple buses (like SCC) because to view the location of the other incoming route you have to back up to the main screen and start over since it won’t show multiple routes at once. This app feels very basic and written for a small mobile device and screen real estate is poorly utilized. It is a great start, but lacks many features other non StarTran apps provide (even some their own desktop version has). Definitely room for improvement.

Not totally terrible, completely mediocre

Sometimes the app just doesn’t work. Sometimes it doesn’t show any of the bus arrival times. Sometimes it crashes repeatedly. When it’s not doing those things it’s a solid 2.5-3 star app.

Doesn’t work

Can’t see dates and times when planning a trip. Spent time favoriting routes and stops, but the next time I opened the app they were not saved. As someone new to the bus system, I was really hoping this app would help make this new and slightly uncomfortable experience a little better. Doesn’t look like it will.
