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.

VERY helpful

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

Easy to use and beautiful!

I love the trip planning features, and it’s nice that the bus times are in real-time. I’ve tried using other apps in the past (apple maps, google maps) to try to locate my destinations, but you can’t always see your routes and stops on the map, so you don’t know where you are in relation to a route. It’s great that you can see multiple trips for your planned route, and even plan for trips in the future too. YOU CAN EVEN SEE YOUR STOPS IN THE REAL WORLD!!! This easily deserves 5 stars!
