Comments and Reviews from users:

Steve Hatter: “Transit is my number 1 mass transit everything app! This app does it all for my trip planning, bus and light rail line riding and does an outstanding job of letting me know when the next bus will arrive; it will even show approximately how full that bus is. But, if I need to walk instead of use a bus or train it can help with that. While I don't use it for bicycles or scooters because I am severely visually impaired, this app can handle those options too. THANK YOU, TRANSIT!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Richard “Rick” Neill: “Update: Still crashes regularly. Gave in and paid. Some features work now that I pay but still has bugs that crash the app repeatedly on my modern Samsung phone. Even worse now. No longer works great now that features are being removed from the free version. Miss the Go feature, which no longer functions most of the time. Nice to see available options nearby.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jacob Hall: “I LOVE Amtrak but this app needs an overhaul. - it takes three tries to successfully search for available bookings, each and every time - my bookings are refreshed every time I return to the app, which then refuse to load if I'm out of service (which seems to happen every time the ticket inspector shows up 😭) - I can't dismiss adverts for Amtrak services - aggressive, consumer-unfriendly scare tactics to buy travel "protection" ...the list goes on. Help me love you Amtrak, I'm a member of RPA” – 2/5 in Play Store

Peyton Lamb: “The app is generally good, although parts of the interface could use some polish, and I *really* wish it had the ability to save tickets to Google Wallet, like the iPhone app can with Apple Wallet. It could also use some speed improvements, it can be pretty laggy, which is frustrating to wait for as the conductor comes by to check tickets.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “The app is good to check on real time bus and subway arrivals, but it still has to improve on performance status and updates. There should also be improvement on the trips feature. Unless I put in an actual address as a starting point, the trip feature is simply useless. -------------------------------------------------------------- 10/28/18: Here's an update to the comments above. Checked on the directions feature. Definitely a good improvement from the last time. Thank you” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “App works well, provides all necessary essential information relating to travel. The subway map also needs to be updated, cause of ongoing track improvements, the current map doesn't reflect the changes on the F line. My only issue is when you search for it on Play Store it shows 2 different ver of same app. One with ads & one without, but no matter which one you select it ends up installing the ver with ads. Fix this cause it's misleading.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Adding my voice to the many reports of constant crashes. As of today the app is unusable. It was clear months ago that an auto restart was added to the app to handle occasional but common crashes. That has now produced a crashing loop every few seconds. Edit: Advice from another review seems to work. Close the app, enable airplane mode, and restart the app. Seems there is a server side issue causing client side crashes. Leaving my negative review up until this is truly fixed. Edit2: The lasted update seems to have fixed the issue.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Eric Andruszko: “So I finally managed to log in... and it's just okay. The constant demand for location to be on is still stupid, unnecessary, and annoying. The favorite stations/stops tracker is cool. But you can't view each L line as just a list of stops... you have to SEARCH for it, and hope you type things juuuust right. Otherwise it just tries to guess (horribly) what's nearby based on your location. Which, if it's off, still guesses anyways and isn't terribly accurate or helpful...” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Worked great until today, now opening the pass hijacks my volume controls. It lowers the media to zero without pausing it and sets the volume button to adjust the in call volume. It's a hassle to go and fix it every single time. Edit: it stopped doing it all of a sudden. Now it works perfectly, just like it used to.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Does not work sometimes. I keep clicking my pass that has 28 days left and click it while connected to the internet. Not worth the potential headache or embarrasment. I haven't had this issue until tonight and I tried everything short of uninstalling the software. I will try that next. It was nice not losing the physical pass but that seemed a little more reliable.” – 2/5 in Play Store
