Only signed up because twitter travel alerts are being shut down and this was the suggested replacement. I've signed up for one regular journey yet I'm receiving alerts for any line with an issue, e.g. today received alerts for every line on the network due to industrial action. Don't force users onto your app if the functions don't work properly. Also the process of linking a contactless payment is quite arduous.

Utterly useless. Force us to use a system that doesn't even work. Can't top up my card via app - the app crashes every time. Can't top up online - "card already registered". Queue to use machine at station, miss train.

This app is very helpful for planning my trips, especially when buses are involved One feature I think would be nice is being able to mark off each leg of your trip as you complete them. I've had a few times where notifications have gotten confused because the second bus has covered some of the same ground as the first
