Ratings and Reviews
Great for Tourists!
I love this app! It works so well and really helped me while I was in Boston. It will plan out your trip, it tells your when the next train/bus/etc. is coming, and it is well detailed. We had no issues getting to our locations on time thanks to this app. Would most definitely recommend this app.
Gives the information I want
Gives the information I want; all the bus routes at a particular stop on one screen, so I know if the bus coming next is the one I want or not. Also the next few of each line which will come in the future.
Aggressive Ads Makes It Unusable
I usually don't mind ads in free apps but the way this one handles it is aggressive and trashy. Basically as soon as you click the stop you want a 30 second ad pops up and this could be the difference between whether you catch it or not. Tried to deal with it but it's awful.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
