I tried it out on a familiar route near my home. It doesn't recommend the best bus route that I am used to but suggested one more expensive. Worse still, to get to that bus stop it says it's only 3 minutes of walking. But it didn't tell me that I had to walk across bushes and over water, along a straight line between my home and the bus stop. The Google map says, which is more accurate, it would take 30 minutes. However, for some general guidance it's still a useful app.
This is the best app I've ever downloaded. I traveled Europe with it. Rome2Rio has everything you need to know! I was frustrated with the directions I'd get from other apps so now I basically only use R2R. I don't rent cars really and like public transport but I also try to go to the little towns and far-out places so my best option is R2R. My only option really. No one else can get me out there. I don't know how they got so much information. It's really an amazing app. Everyone I've told about it has loved it.
This is an absolute amazing app. Got us around Amsterdam even with the night buses at 3 in the morning. Struggled to get my exact location via GPS à few times, but I just either manually put in the street name or checked my location on Google maps. Throughly recommend!
I have used this app for 15 trips it has saved me so much money and time and frustration. I recommend it to all my traveling companions but now I'm finding that many of them are already using it.
I used this traveling across Europe as a general guide. Do not rely on this to book your travel, instead use it to gauge prices and the best route. If you do this it's a perfect planning tool.
Very lazy UX and design by the R2R team...porting over an iOS version of the app to Android or using PhoneGap to create/develop your app. Such a strong concept for planning travel on desktop. Invest some Experience designers, please
