Nice integration-Would be nice to have GPS


For public transit, this app is impressive. The app is nice in mapping your route and I love that I can purchase and use my pass in the app. It would be nicer if it incorporated gps to better see where you are on the route. I noticed some of the busses I took on my trip were not necessarily in-sync with the actual progress the bus was taking. I accidentally requested the wrong stop because I wasn't familiar with the area and the status bar showed we were passed that. It would also be nice / more user friendly if it would let me save the route I'm on (instead of having to re-search it AND if there was a GPS feature to show what route I'm on. This would be a nice integrated filter to support what busses are on time.

Useful, but slow & crash-prone

BL in KS

Sooooo slow to load, and 7 times out of 10, it crashes before fully loading. As others have mentioned, you have to time the display of your ticket just right — do it too soon & it will probably sign you out right before the bus arrives; if you wait until the bus pulls up, you will probably keep people waiting while the app loads or you sign back in. On the plus side, it’s easy to buy passes once you get your account set up, and the trip planner works pretty well. But I don’t usually use the app to check schedules— I have Safari bookmarks set up to quickly get to the routes I frequently ride.

Austin cap metro rocks!!!

Hello everyone, by and large- if you ever want to meet some of the most friendly and helpful bus drivers in the whole country- just hop onto a metro and ask for assistence. I recently moved here, and was very dis-oriented at first because of the continual cloud cover. These bus drivers helped me immensely. They need to put official tip jars in the front of the bus- thats what needs to happen- i would put spare change in there everytime!!!! Thanx Dennis H
