Please note that the app requires data access and works best with GPS / location on. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Background GPS is only used when you have a Get Off Alert turned on.
New in this release: improved search, a new Help section and you can now share your trip with anyone - even if they don't have the app.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a great improvement over the past apps. It runs almost like the transit app. I like the bus numbers. Sometimes I still use the transit app because it gives all of the buses in the area and the times they are going to arrive. This helps me to decide which corner of the intersection to go to if I missed one bus. It would be nice to have instructions as how to do things for those who are not intuitive. The destinations of the buses and the bus numbers are very helpful. Sometimes it would be nice to have the buses GPS to be updated a little more frequently. The number of RTD apps is confusing when looking for the most up to date one.
No way to contact & routing needs to be improved
Problem #1 is that their in-app “Send Feedback” page doesn’t allow you to submit your message, so there is no way to contact them without digging on the internet to try and find contact info.
Proble #2: I wasted my time finding their website and typing out a message only to encounter another error with their contact form - HTTP 401 on their own form submission to their own site. If they can’t even maintain their basic website, I have no hopes for the app to be improved.
Now, on to the app:
The routing could use an refactor.
For a trip from North Boulder to Union Station, a chosen route taking the 204 to FF2, why do you have the trip transfer at Broadway and 20th instead of the downtown boulder station?
One reason to do this is to ensure that one can get on the FF2 with luggage or a bicycle. Another benefit is that when people board the FF2 at the station while the bus is just sitting idle is that the trip times will decrease with less people getting on the bus mid-route, decreasing dwell time.
Making apps for public transportation should not just check a list of features, it should be tested and thought out to the actual experience. Otherwise it’s just another app in the App Store.
If you are a college student without a car(or any person with a bus pass), then this app is a must have. I recently turned my car in because the lease had run out and this app has helped me get all across the city&state. I have childhood friends who live an 1.5hr drive away and my Father and Brother live about an 1hr away.
**The Plan Trip feature is the way to go👌🏽 it walks you through every single step. You could be illiterate and still be capable of understanding the directions.
All-in-all, it's made a positive effect in my life. I hope you take the leap and it can do the same for you! Cop an RTD pass and this app A$AP Rocky!
