Wait! What!? So not only did Grand River Transit decide to be the ONLY transit authority in the GTA that doesn't use Presto but they've also decided not to share route/schedule information with Google, Metrolinx or NextBus!!! So I've got to use a different payment method and different app to plan my trip. What the hell!? Are the town planners aware that there are other communities in Southern Ontario besides K-W/Cambridge?
This is a great app in theory if it worked. Only problem is it doesn't. With all the LRT construction in kitchener this app frequently miss quotes the time remaining for busses or skips to the next one when your current bus is still on its way. My favorites list has also stopped displaying even though the individual stops still show when I search them manually (and still indicate they have been selected as favorites) Fix your bugs and you'll get a 5 star from me.
(EDIT: it's now clear what's real-time and what's scheduled. Good work!) As a frequent GRT user, this will be a very useful app for me. However, it's confusing at first as to what times are based on real-time data. I have figured out now that when you first tap Near Me you're seeing times based on the schedule, and if you tap on a specific route you're seeing times based on real-time data. However, this isn't stated on any of the screens and that makes it confusing.
Still needs more work. Horribly slow on both mobile data and wifi. App stops working if you try to leave a real-time location map. Use gdmalet's Grand River Transit app instead; it's very fast and works without being online (scheds are stored on your device).
Worst transit app you ever use This app is largely inaccurate with schedules and will often display a bus arriving in x amount of minutes for nothing to arrive. Difficult to navigate, poorly designed, you're better off using google maps. Kind of fitting though. A garbage transit app to beautifully reflect the mess that is GRT transit.
Should be named FrustratingGO One of the worst performing official transit apps I have had the displeasure of using. Do you like to switch between stops? Nah, you have to kill the app and reselect it. Crashes at basically every screen and it's about as reliable as Punxsutawney Phil. Walk out, do you see your shadow? Maybe the GRT bus will just skip your stop for no reason 👌
Faster app launching and a small (but important) security update.
