MARTA On the Go
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This application allows the user access to all bus and rail schedules and real-time information for the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.
What's New in Version 3.6.4
Bus Schedule Changes
Like MARTA itself, this app needs a lot of work.
For over a week, the southbound train schedule for Sandy Springs medical center and other stations north have absolutely no southbound schedules. Today, the schedules are nonexistent for most stations. Schedules can be inaccurate. When it gives accurate information, it's great. But, as with Marta, I have a love/hate relationship.
UPDATE: Downgrade to one star- months later and after sending numerous emails, the app still does not show southbound trains for some northern stations. Yesterday when checking trains for Midtown station, some trains were labeled "unidentified" and some didn't show up at all. Marta doesn't seem to care.
UPDATE: well it's been months since my first one star review, and the MARTA app still stinks. I just missed the train because it's arrival did not show up on the app. I have watched other trains arrive going south and their arrival did not show up either on the app. Some lines disappear entirely for several minutes and then suddenly reappear. As to arriving southbound trains at the northern stations, after months of requesting that this be fixed, they STILL do not show up. Way to go Marta. It's what I expect from you.
App works ecept. for....
The app works for me when I check real time for buses like 19 and 75. For some reason when I pull up the real time map for bus 125, the map doesn't show bus 125 anywhere. Afterwards I move the map around with my fingers and find bus 125 without a line indicating the bus route for this bus. I feel the Marta on the Go app needs to be updated with all of the real time maps working for all of Marta's current buses listed on the app. I am mad I cannot check the real time map for bus 125 at all as I have to sometimes take the bus from work in order to catch another bus to get close to home.
Real time map issues!
Real time map for route 15 does not work! Every time I try and open it, it shows a blank map with no route on it and then it immediately force closes. I take this route pretty much every day so that means I rely on the Marta app. I've even asked someone else with the app to check the same route using real time map and it did the same thing for them. It also doesn't work for a few other routes that I've tried checking. This problem had been going on for WEEKS and there still is no update to fix these issues.
