Some things work well. Other things are horrible. Made the mistake of marking something as a "favorite" and now have the inability to remove it. It will show that there are two more favorites that are hidden but when you hit expand, it will not show them. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling it and it does the same thing. Maddening!

Lately no matter how strong a cell signal I have or if I'm on WiFi the app takes more than 30 seconds to load and then longer to populate data. Favorite stops eventually say "No information available" but it's not possible to remove them. It's becoming largely unusable. It would be nice to expand the area with the number of stops to see the names of all the stops.

This app used to be very useful with helping me navigate the train schedules, but now it's extremely frustrating. It doesn't work properly anymore. All the other people who have left reviews have covered the issues and bugs this app has currently, so I guess I don't need to repeat them. I just hope ventra fixes everything soon.
