Ratings and Reviews
App crashes when trip planning ahead
Not a bad app. Works well. Unless when you want to set a time to leave later in the day.
Overall the app works well except for the above
Good app tickets often fail
I use the app every day for heading to work since it has launched and it is a nice application. Works effectively the same as the old one with a few extra utilities with separate purpose though once consistent issue I have noticed since launch is that the tickets will occasionally fail in contrast to the old app. It made me avoid moving to the new one and every now again periods will occur where tickets purchased a minute or two before embarking a bus will state invalid. My guess is that when purchased I have noticed the expiration is set to the same minute it is purchased regardless of if you activate it or not in some cases though it has been intermittent.
Some Issues But Not Bad
I am a Fullerton and Cypress College student who relies heavily on my school given bus passes. Since I had one from each school, I also allowed my friend to use my unused one since he needed a way to get around.
With this new app, I have lost both my tickets and I am not sure how to get them back. I followed the instructions in the email sent out but it says I have no tickets and I have even used my school email and such as told to do by the school.
I’m not exactly upset but I wanted to bring that to attention with OCTA and hopefully they can get a fix out or something because my friend and I just lost our rides to everywhere and beyond!
