IMPORTANT TIP: I downloaded and installed the app with no difficulty. However, when I opened the app, nothing looked right and nothing worked right (hot garbage, as Deborah Dixon described it). I restarted my device and WOW it was a completely different experience. So far, it looks great! Therefore, I strongly suggest that you RESTART YOUR DEVICE if the app doesn't work correctly immediately after you install it.

It works .. but it definitely doesn't make it easy. Bare bones with limited functionality. Trip Planner has issues. Why does it keep resetting date/time from my settings to "NOW". I am attempt to plan a trip, why do you keep resetting the date/time I am planning around. Should also be able to check for earlier/later trains either by scrolling or pushing a button. Now I have to go into the planner and basically guess with a new time and hope I get a later train.

There are "earlier" and "later" features in the Trip Planner results. Or you can easily change the time and date in the Plan Trip section at the top of the screen. These are both available without having to go to a new screen.

I DON'T like your recent update to your app or website!! Most of the added features are extra and a little unnecessary. I'd just like a quick and accurate way to see when and where my train is coming not to gps specific addresses and locations or look at a map to find stations. Leave that type of stuff to Google, their a lot better at it!!

We have now added a simple station to station search with a drop down of stations to select. Real time departures is prominently featured in the app in multiple places. If you want to enter a starting address or arrival destination, you can make the Trip Planner results "BART only" using the options tool and turning off the other transit options.

What's new

This release includes minor updates to the station and daily permit parking screens based on users' feedback.
