Ratings and Reviews
As others have pointed out, the user interface is awkward. Planning trips is more difficult than using google maps. Seeing all the bus stops for a route is difficult, especially the suburban express routes. Glitches and crashing are frequent. This could be such a useful app, making navigating the bus system easy. Instead, I have to go on the RideKC website, look at multiple maps and schedules and try to combine that information with Google maps to get around.
I’d like to see route schedules on this app. Or even better, allow me to tap on a stop for a particular route and see all the times that a bus will arrive there.
This app works great, but a cool feature that isn’t being utilized that could make it easier for iPhone users in particular - simply and quickly could have access to their passes by quick prompts that are already on their phone thru the application wallet (by double clicking the home button on the lock screen) instead of: having to unlock, locate the app inside the phone, then selecting to use the pass.
Quick and simple prompts to your passes in stead of open with iPhone
Won’t let me plan my trip
I keep getting an error when attempting to plan my trip. Makes it more difficult to know where to get off at to catch the next bus. I have location service turned on but for some reason it’s not working. Not having this feature working, I have to keep looking in the app to find out when the next bus is coming instead of just planning my trip then the app telling me when I need to start walking to the bus stop. It used to work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
