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.

Doesn’t let you buy tickets

I had luck the first time I used this app. Then I tried using this it 4 other times with two different cards and it won’t let me add perfectly working cards to make a purchase. It just has the loading screen spinning on my phone for hours. This is awful. And people have been coming plain about this for a while and as typical detroit transportation services go - they don’t do anything to fix it! I had somewhere that was pretty important to be at on time last month and figured I could pay on the app since I didn’t have cash and didn’t have enough on my card to withdrawal cash - but this stupid app didn’t allow that to happen since it wouldn’t take my card like it did before. This is unreal. Do better, Smart and Ddot. Lord knows how much money you already make off of your crappy services to do so!

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.
