The app works but it's a usability nightmare. Planning a trip is slow when searching for stations, no recent search history, and the app always returns to the home screen when you switch away. As others mentioned, any money left on a card when you are done with it is basically forfeit so don't load the card with anything more than you need.

I love using opal. Its my go too travel service. But lately when I'm on a trip, I turn off my phone to save battery but when I need to check on my trip to see my progress opals no longer ger there and I need to reopen the app and get another trip activated. Opal closes even if I briefly switch to another app. It's very tedious and I do t know if it's the apps fault or I did something to my phone settings? If you could look into this and identify the problem I would greatly appreciate it.

Steadily getting worse over time. Inaccurate and full of feature bloat. Recommends 20+ minute (plus wait) bus trips in leiu of walking 5, this is consistently a pain on trips that require multiple buses. Won't remember your trip if you minimise the app (not close just minimise) . Wont work at all without updated app. Buses replace trains is not represented at all on the application it seems. Information is not consistently accurate.
