It's great app!

It's easy for me to use this app. :)

Good, but...

Needs an update for Windows 10, but otherwise it's a good app.

Useful but slow

Very useful app but it needs to load the schedules quicker

Fantastic app, easy to use for visitors!

This is an awesome transit app. I was so glad to have it on my recent visit to Austin. Knowing nothing about the system already, it was easy to understand and got me where I needed to go!




Platform: Mobile

I like being able to buy tickets from the phone with a credit card when HEB's service desk isn't open, but the phone "ticket" is slower than swiping a pass card, and the rest of the app doesn't do much that they website can't. The Trip Planner allows me to save a Favorite trip, but I can't see how to access it later. I'll probably keep the app, but I think I'll go back to buying monthly passes in January.




Platform: Mobile

Unusable. The app takes forever and a day to load information, and when it loads the schedule, the times swipe back and forth, but the numbers on top don't, which makes it impossible to use. Clicking on the PDF to open the schedule does nothing. You can't purchase one way tickets, and are forced into day passes. Many screens keep showing an invasive popup and then exit since I have not allowed the app to know my current location, making those features unusable also. This app is awful. However, once when I had a need for an emergency ticket, I bought one via this app and it saved me in a time of need (out of cash, important meeting). This app is helpful as a last resort, but I still have no clue when my bus is scheduled to come, so I guess I'll have to call.

Was better before - now the schedule display is slow to load and the table doesn't always align to the station names... which makes that feature useless. Ticketing works well though.




Platform: Mobile

Little slow and it didn't let me buy me tickets with the app but great




Platform: Mobile

Great app! No issues, clean design, fast, very useful. I use it every day.
