Well worth 15 cents convince fee

Being able to just hop on the bus without scrambling for singles or coins saves me time and just makes me feel so special . What a great convenience.

Love the app but have a small problem

The first time I paid for my ticket on the app it worked with no problem. I tried to use it again days later buying another ticket of course and it’s not accepting my card. Now it’s the same card I used the first time I tried using a different card as well still didn’t accept. How can we fix this ? I love this app just wondering why after a first use it’s not taking my card anymore and yes I’ve checked my bank account and it’s fine.

Needs fixing

I usually buy my bus cards at my local CVS so I was glad when this app was made. I went ahead and downloaded it but some of the words are missing. I closed the app and tried again and it was the same. The option to pick the type of card I wanted want wasn’t even available. I’m hoping this gets fixed soon
