Not working

Not sure what happened as I used this app quite frequently over the summer to plan trips and see arrival times and it worked fine, but trip planner suddenly isn’t working at all. App hasn’t been updated in nine months so that could be the problem especially with a new ios running on my phone.

Even the bus drivers hate this app!

My husband had to start going back to the office after 11 years working from home and starting taking the bus. The first day the bus driver told him he hates when riders try to use the app. That says everything!

Three areas need improvement:

1) The payment app. It’s not easy to figure out that you can’t get a barcode until you are ready to ride and even then you have to be careful. Too soon it could expire, too late and you are holding up the bus.

2) Real time bus tracking doesn’t work. He got to the bus stop at the time it was supposed to arrive and the app updated to show a bus 11 minutes away. Then one showed up 4 minutes later.

3) Trip planning. The previous version the address search found addresses all over the world (areas you don’t serve CDTA). That was bad but now you can only find stop names...no addresses are found. If you find a stop name by typing a street, it doesn’t tell you what city the stop is in. Don’t you realize that there are State Streets, Broadway and Main are pretty much in every city you serve?

Very disappointed with this app. Please try harder this is needed and you can do better.

Barcodes not scanning, again

It seems every time this app gets updated, the barcodes stop working. Now the barcode shows up too small and the app says to click the barcode to enlarge, and it enlarges ever so slightly, and still does not scan. The app was finally back to scanning correctly and now my money is being wasted yet again. Bus drives also don’t realize that if you’re scanning your phone, you’ve essentially already paid so they should be aware that they should let you on if the machines are not scanning.
