"I know designing a good search interface is hard, but yours is already pretty good. Having schedules is what makes the app worth purchasing, so you’ve got the right idea there. I’ve always been frustrated with the GO website, your app is already easier to use!" -Michael
"Your app is awesome. A fantastic idea. It shows how to use technology to improve our lives." -Miguel

● Fix platform status for stations other than Union due to GO Transit website changes
Good app and good developer response to occasional issues
I've been using this app for a while and it works as advertised. Last version had some issues crashing in non Union platform updates -- presumably due to some changes on GoTransit web side. Anyway, posted feedback and developer had it fixed in about 2-3 days. Good responsiveness. 👍
Good, but could be great
Useful app. I refer to it often. Very clumsy when trip is train/bus, so definitely room for improvement.
Awesome app!! Keep up the great work!!! Metrolinx should hire you!!! Best GO transit app!
