Great UI and visualization of transit routes. GO feature is great for getting around unfamiliar places. Would be 5 stars if it were possible to purchase and activate multiple different passes. I had to wait until a 3hr-no-airport pass expired to be able to purchase a fare that included airport transit. If the option is there, it is not clearly visible in the UI.

When it worked properly, it was great. ~2 weeks after I activated a 31-day unlimited bus pass, the app de-activated the pass. After several emails with their tech support, it was partly re-activated. I could open my pass once a day but if I closed it to look at nearby buses for my transfer, I couldn't open it again until the next day. So I could only get part way to work each day. I explained this to tech support but the issue was never resolved. It cost me extra money for rides. Not cool.

This app's UI was a mess when I last used it in 2019, and nothing has changed. You can never tell if you have an active trip, if it's telling you to leave now for a bus you're just looking at or one you've set up a reminder for. The map attempts to let you see all your transit options, but in reality tapping on anything accidentally removes you from whatever else you were looking at. It's a useful tool for getting around still, but you need to first learn the many different ways it will fail.
