Your app absolutely needs to incorporate a Google-like map API. I've been in smaller cities where each bus's route can be toggled on and off and the bus's location can be seen in near real-time. For instance, I should be able to look at bus 153 and see its entire route on an active map I can engage with. Using my own location I should be able to see exactly what routes are in my vicinity instantly. Axe of the PDFs. Appreciate free service to veterans but allow vets to use any VA id.

I ride metro all the time. Its very cheap and convenient. Its a whole lot better than it used to be. Having a Q CARD is the only way to go...unless you want to pay for every bus or train transfer. YOU CAN GET THEM AT THE METRO STORE at the DownTownTransitCenter. Or at most convenient stores in the Houston/ Metro Area and Downtown. The busses a trains are nice and clean. The air conditioning is always cold. Its a Comfy Ride......"ALL ABOARD !!!!!!"

App completely stops working... freezes when putting in stops or addresses. Key word searches on street names or place names too limited. If you don't spell street or highway name exactly the way the app has it entered in their search criteria, you won't receive any results. Very poorly designed and executed app.
