Could be improved drastically
I downloaded the app and it looks ok. Could be better and more user friendly. Basically you have to know where the bus route goes. Unfortunately there is no way to save your favorite bus and make that the bus you get alerts from. A step further would be to allow you to get an alert for the bus you intend to take letting you know, from current location....”if you leave now, you can catch the 4:00pm bus at gate 300”. Also, the maps are really small and basic. Should have a more updated feel. So if you are going to a park and ride or main location that is a major stop you will find it. If not, you cannot search.
It has potential and I like the fact that the gate and time are on there.
Needs more enhanced features
It is useful when trying to locate the terminal where a bus is located and the time it will be at that gate. But it would be very useful that once I select the certain bus at a certain time it should then give me the option to see the stops on it's route for that trip. Also I would like to have a "favorite" feature where I can select a certain bus and save it to my favorites. This way I can receive alerts pertaining to my bus and see it as soon as I open the app instead of searching for it. Thank you.
I saw the ad in the terminal for this app and excitedly downloaded the app because it is impossible to find what gate a bus leaves from unless you know someone that has taken the bus before and even then they know where the gate is but not number.
After downloading the app I tried searching for my destination city and couldn’t find it. Then tried other popular destinations like Hoboken, Wayne, Paramus and found no results. I quickly realized there is no NJT bus listed.
NJT is a big chunk of their service, so I’m not sure why they would pay to design this app and not include one of their biggest providers.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
