Nice integration-Would be nice to have GPS
For public transit, this app is impressive. The app is nice in mapping your route and I love that I can purchase and use my pass in the app. It would be nicer if it incorporated gps to better see where you are on the route. I noticed some of the busses I took on my trip were not necessarily in-sync with the actual progress the bus was taking. I accidentally requested the wrong stop because I wasn't familiar with the area and the status bar showed we were passed that. It would also be nice / more user friendly if it would let me save the route I'm on (instead of having to re-search it AND if there was a GPS feature to show what route I'm on. This would be a nice integrated filter to support what busses are on time.
Drains Your Battery Horribly
While the app is extremely functional (roughly accurate, lets you buy tix, etc), I’m taking off three stars for the following reasons:
One star for evading even the most basic of reasonable accountability: the disclaimer in the app claims they are not responsible for any false information, despite being the official app where you can buy tickets electronically and every bus driver accepts said electronic ticket as a valid purchase. Could you imagine if I ran a store with a sign on the front door saying I’m not responsible for any mislabeled prices or items? They can’t even own up to the lowest, most reasonable levels of responsibility and accountability for their own official app. Yay government!
Two stars for battery life. I literally watched my phone go from 100% to 84% in the two minutes (no exaggeration) it took me to open the app and plan a trip in it from my house to downtown. I’m scared to use this app when I’m out and about because I’m worried my phone will be dead before the bus comes and then I can’t get on cause I can’t prove I bought a ticket. Pathetic. Make an app that isn’t so hard on the battery life!
The September ‘19 update is fantastic
I am absolutely blown away by the new update. I was concerned that the drastic changes might be for the worse, but nearly everything has been overhauled in a positive way. Your currently active pass is now the first thing you see when you open the app, which is a big deal by itself, but they also improved the process for purchasing new passes (Apple Pay!), the trip planner is actually usable now, the UI for finding nearby stops and times now shows the routes in the search menu so you don’t have to select each one to figure out which is the one you want, and so many more little touches.
It’s obvious that they paid attention to complaints about the previous version and did a lot of UI testing. Now if only the city could actually implement a useful light rail network...
