Unable to log in - FIXED!!!
The app works well overall. I like how you can save favorite stops but I wish you could sort once you save them. I also wish you could switch between the exact time and the number of minutes until the next bus arrives (next bus: 7:02 vs 3 mins).
The Major problem (and I meant to capitalize that....) is that the app won’t let me login anymore. Every time I try to authenticate with Facebook or by email, I get an error message saying the user needs an email to login. So I can’t access my information anymore! Very frustrating. 4 stars otherwise.

Hi there! The issue has been fixed. Please try logging in again! We apologize for the issue and thank you for your patience.
Needs a Q&A!
The purchases of the daily pass and the 90 minutes ticket should be easy and not be hidden away. After spending 15 minutes trying to find the the 90 minutes ticket on the app, I had to call MCTS to walk me through the steps to change from a day pass to the 90 minutes ticket. The app is not user friendly and intuitive. There is NO Q&A about how to use the app like purchasing a 90 minute ticket or the day pass. The purpose of the bus animation. I had a female bus driver badgering me about the bus animation and she was rude. The bus animation should come on everytime the user access the app when it is a day pass. The app does not say anything about tapping on the transfer link to show the bus animation to the driver. This app should come with instructions to inform the user how to use the features. MCTS video promo was useless and the bus drivers are not helpful! A Q&A would have been much appreciated with the app!
This enabled me to avoid renting a car on a recent visit to Milwaukee. I flew in to MKE and hopped on the bus so to arrive at my Airbnb door for $2. I hadn’t used the bus since a kid 50 years ago but was quickly finding routes and purchasing tickets ...
this ap distinguishes itself from others in that it does more than just show you route info, it tells you which set of different routes to consider. Trip planning is easy.
You saved me a$100 last trip so a big thanks. Please talk to DC metro folks so they implement similar features
