Ratings and Reviews
Kudos and Feature Request
Overall, this app works great and I have no major issues with it.
It would be awesome to have the ability to transfer tickets. I’m manager of a small company downtown where everyone takes the bus to work. We cover the cost of transit, which involves going down to the ticket office to buy passes once every few weeks.
This gets to be an issue when everyone with a company card is out and we instead have to do a reimbursement when someone covers their own fare. Additionally, we are growing and managing our stock of bus passes is becoming increasingly difficult.
A transfer feature would allow a manager to purchase passes on the app (or online) then transfer them to employees to use on their phones when they need a new pass. We wouldn’t need to keep physical passes on-hand or be physically present to purchase passes.
Works for me!
App seems like an easy choice compared to using a machine for tix. I watched the video on how to use the app which helped. Using the app, I bought four day tix for $8 total. We traveled from banks to Findlay market and back. Only waited a few minutes at stop each time. Ride was good and pretty many riders. Will do again.
This is a decent beginner app, but adding a few features would change my rating to 5 stars.
1. Have a "favorites" list to include home and work.
2. Choose the stop and show the upcoming buses and times so I know how long I'll have to wait for the next bus.
3. Identify special busses/routes, such a school bus routes, as non-public. It's very frustrating to wait for a bus that you think is a public bus, only to find out that it doesn't stop at your stop. Even though the app says it does.
4. Show more than four route options in the "Get Routes." I should be able to scroll down for a multitude of routes and times rather than just four.
This could be a great tool. Please keep improving it.
