It's not very user friendly. When I plug in current location them destination, I'm expecting the app to tell me the best route using the MBTA instead it gives me a slew of bus numbers with directions that are literally out of the way. It should be looking for the quickest route and it should allow for adjustments to help. I spent 45 minutes trying to get the app to identify buses that would get me to a location. I already knew there was a bus that drove by my location I just didn't know the number bus. The app kept giving me bus numbers to the far side of the route with a ridiculous amount of time to walk to the location. I eventually found the bus number after driving by the stop.
Wish I would have read the other reviews
What a stupid app. Don't bother. If I was familiar with the train system I wouldn't need an app. I just bought this about 20 min ago. Sick of trying to figure it out. Lack of filters I think. I'm on my computer now researching.
