No bus beyond city limits

I like the idea A LOT but the execution seems to be lacking. I’m in Vancouver BC and most destinations I searched came up with one error or another. After finding out that I needed to specify transportation modes I did, and all that shows up for trips outside the city are walking and biking options even though bus, ferry and train were all selected (and work great on other mapping apps).

Another note that I made was that only 1 option was ever presented for the trips that did work. Maybe that’s good for some people but I still would like to compare options where available.

Maybe I’m using it wrong for trips to the north shore but if so then it’s not clear how. Either way, the app needs more work before I’ll use it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Our app is designed to work within city limits, with providers that allow use of their data. In some regions, a few options are displayed if there are no others (typically public transit).
We hope you continue using it and we will work to improve it overtime.

It’s a scam

The app is a scam and it will get your email before saying your area is “unsupported”. Don’t get robbed!

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear that, but the app currently supports 62 cities as listed in the description. We apologize if your city is not supported yet. We also do not collect your email unless you create an account, which is optional. The app works without creating an account.

No available cities at all

Yes, I know a MVP is a good way to test your app but at least you should put some cities available in app! After I spend 10 minutes download and install the app and have a try, I find no cities available at all! Why do you publish it on the App Store then?

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear you’re having issues. The app is available in 62 North American cities, including all large US cities. You have the complete list in the app’s description.
