Ratings and Reviews
30 day trial?
This app sounds great, but after 30 days, San Francisco Database packs cost $9.99? I'd pay $9.99 if all the offline data was included.
A necessity for public transportation usage
I rely on SEPTA to get from South Philly to the King of Prussia mall 5 days a week for work. Therefore, I rely on this app everyday for my ever changing bartender schedule, and SEPTA's. Before I set my alarm, all I need to do is change the arrival day & time, and the app will tell me what time the subway leaves, when I will get uptown, how soon I have to be at the bus, and when I will arrive at work, with various options on routes and times on either side of my desired arrival time. With Septa being unreliable for one reason or another (traffic, maintenance issues, or whatever excuse a driver can come up with), it's nice to be able to chose a schedule that will get me to work a half hour early, or if I'm pushing the envelope, 5 minutes before my shift. I don't know what I would do with out this transit app. I've tried many others and they just don't fit my needs. This one is perfect for public transportation users, especially those who live in Philadelphia and are relying on connections/heading to the suburbs. Don't necessarily recommend this for intercity travel unless you're on a tight schedule, since the subways run every ten minutes, and popular bus routes the same or less.
Really good point to point navigation
This app actually surprised me as I thought it would be more stripped down. I mainly got it for the SEPTA info but it includes several major us cities. This review is for septa and NYC as I haven't tried the others.
The main benefit of this app is as a navigation tool helping you get from point a to b under different transit routes. You will need to get another app for route specific info.
You do not need location services active which is great! However you need cell service or wifi to initially download the info. Each city must be downloaded separately but max takes two minutes it seems.
Once downloaded you can use the app in airplane mode which is a major deal for me. While its not perfect it will get you to your destination.
Four issues: 1) there are no maps but that may make the app bigger. Still maps are very nice to have for each system. 2) it did miss out on a bus route in Philly but found alternatives. 3) this app does not include service alerts 4) the in app instructions are good but still takes some getting used to to navigate.
Those aside: it did a good job at figuring out routes in both cities and includes ALL septa services, which no free app on the app store offers. I would give 4.5 stars but could not. Again no map or service alerts but at least if I want to figure out how to get somewhere and approximate times I now have one app instead of three.
