There are others, but this is the one you want


I've been using this app for 3+ years. Simple, effective, no frills app. There have been a number of schedule changes lately and the developers have kept up nicely. At some point I must have purchased the commuter package, handy.

The advisory alerts seem to be hit or miss, but that might be my alert settings. It seems like some sort of crowd sourcing of delays could be an interesting addition, although probably a ton more work that would complicate a simple and useful app.

Features I'd like to have


I heavily use the app and as I depend on it more there are some features I would like to have added.

Creating a calendar event from the schedule would allow me to showinthe calendar booked time but also allow me to set reminders/alarms.

As a cofunction, being able to link to schedule info from a calendar event would make travel planning smoother. For instance, creating an event from a web page or email could automatically indicate travel info on caltrain. Some akin to generating a map from an event address.

In fact, extend this to contacts as well?

Perhaps being able to generate alarms directly from the app as well?

Well I am now tired of typing on my phone so this is the list for now.

Looking forward to the future.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback. These are definitely features to add in the coming releases.

clear, accurate, the only caltrain app you need


I have been using this app for four years and it has always been accurate. It's very simple and intuitive to use, and is definitely the fastest way to figure out which caltrain to take (tbh faster than google maps?). I wish the caltrain was as reliable as this app haha.
