Using trip planner - suggests trains/busses that don't run. Busses fail to turn up or just no such train at that time. You would think this app has the latest updates on public transport. Trip planner just can't be relied on . Suggests trips starting! in an hour or two, when GMaps gets me to the destination in that time, with several options to choose from. Only used the app to check Opal balance. But now tap with phone so not even sure why I still have the app.

Unreliable and inaccurate. Wasted my time. many times where I get to the station and trains are not as shown in the app with no notification about delays. Customer service of opal is even worse!

With the industrial action going on we've been told to check the opal app and transport NSW for updates and cancellations. Today is Friday, when there wasn't meant to be any, and I've had 2 cancelled trains so far. I've waited more than an hour for this train and I'm going to be severely late due to it. If only the opal travel app a d warned me about this
