Ratings and Reviews
Can’t live without this app!
If you’re a Bart rider you need this app. It’s always up to date and the real time departures are on point. I love how it calculates fares and lays out the route you need to take if there’s transfers. And it couldn’t be easier to use. Very user friendly. If I could rate it 6 stars I would.
Used to be great, what happened?
This app used to be very dependable and deserving 5 stars in my opinion. However, for the last couple months or so, it has been woefully unreliable. The real-time departure info is THE reason I got this app, but that info has become unreliable. For example, during this morning’s commute from Concord to SF, the app indicated my train was 5 minutes away when it was actually about 2. When I got on the train (after running after seeing it coming, I might add), the app said it was still 3 minutes away.
Please fix. Or, I will certainly look for an alternative.
Developer Response ,
Hi apersoninusa - appreciate the feedback. This has been frustrating on the developer side as well. Easy BART uses a passthrough mechanism, which means it requests real-time departures directly from the BART's servers and delivers them to you (the user) unaltered. With the launch of their own official app, they changed the long-running staff responsible for maintaining their system which serves 3rd party developers. Unfortunately as they've performed migrations and system upgrades their data has occasionally been out-of-sync. Please hang in there, as it seems to be improving. Thanks again for using Easy BART!
With Embark iBart going away (why, I don't know!) this is the next best BART-specific app I've found. It needs work to replace iBART. Basics like Nearest Station detection from the Schedules page, the ability to swap Departure and Destination, and providing multiple Departure/Arrival time options around the desired Departure/Arrival time (iBART provides 7 Departure/Arrival times leading up to the Departure/Arrival, Easy BART just gives the one closest to the desired time) [EDIT: I just noticed does offer multiple times. It's just somewhat hidden. You need to slide to see them]. Easy BART is useful, but hopefully it will improve.
