Ratings and Reviews
Need more time for class upgrades
The newest version refuses to let you buy any ticket as soon as the train is scheduled to leave (even if the train is late). This is particularly annoying with class upgrades. There are many mornings it takes a few minutes to realize there are no seats in 2nd class. I would happily pay to upgrade my to first class, but the app won't let you as of the second the train is SCHEDULED to depart. There is no accounting for late trains and no grace periods for class upgrades. Please let me give you my money! More money for SBB and no more journeys spent miserable (and hot) standing in 2nd class.
No more zone extensions
In the latest update, zone extension tickets are no longer possible. This would be fine if my profile knew what kind of monthly pass I already have. Instead I now have to input an itinerary for only the stops that font cover my pass so I can buy the appropriate ticket.
For example, I have a ZVV pass that covers the city of Zürich. If I want to travel from Zürich HB to Langnau-Gattikon, I have to input an itinerary from Zürich Soodober-Leimbach to Langnau-Gattikon. Then I can buy the ticket that covers the missing zones.
But this is very complicated. Usually I want to know the schedules from where I leave. Also I often don't know at which stop the zone changes requiring me to look up a zone map. Basically this is way too complicated.
What would be easy is that the app knows my ZVV pass and never asks me to pay for zurich city zones, even for an itinerary starting from Zürich HB.
Great app but 1 suggestion
When I find the route schedule I want, then buy the ticket, there’s no link to the route details. I would like to have the selected route’s connection times, tram/busstops, platforms, and info quickly available instead of having to search again and again at each stop along my journey. This is a bit of an oversight, otherwise the app is excellent.
