Physical Go cards don't expire
I did use this app once on a trip cross county from pinellas to Tampa and back. It's ok but didn't communicate passes across devices. So if your battery is dying after a long day of travel, you start to panic that you won't make it home. Wifi is fine for transferring passes between devices in pinellas but Hillsborough wifi service is very spotty. Also juggling more than one pass if you have a minor child is a pain. Finally the physical cards do not expire while purchases here do. I wasted a bit of money because of that. It's good if you have an emergency trip cross county that requires multiple days consecutive but otherwise I haven't used it since it was introduced. Physical cards are better.
Most people using the bus system are there to save money on transportation or situational. The app charges a dollar extra for a 1 day unlimited & $7.25 extra for a 3 day unlimited pass. Most people will rather use cash to pay the boarding rate on the bus & I don’t see how this is really going to be effective considering the expensive rates & it’ll be useless if your phone dies. Their contract with HART & PSTA should be reviewed to at the bare minimum offer it’s users the cost of what it is on the bus / whatever platform they use. I guess bother paying extra if you really want / need to.
Make No Sense
First whoever developed this app has no clue how the city bus works. Let alone consider riding it. If this was made for everyday rider the there should be an option to buy either 1 day to weekly purchase, And monthly purchase. Who in there right mind would use this app when it cost more to use thank paying it at the kiosk. Must be out of your mind. HART THIS APP IS rip-off!! It’s hard to ride the bus let alone be exploited to pay a 3-day ride that’s more expensive when you pay out of pocket. Smh.
