Handy for an Out-of-Towner Was visiting Portland for a week, and this was very handy. I was able to purchase my ticket for the week after figuring out how to get to my Airbnb. Stayed in my app all week, no issues. Likes to sync when you open it, which causes a little wait. I'll take that over worrying about misplacing a physical ticket though!
Long sync times It can take up to 3 or 4 minutes for the syncing process to complete and it does this every other time you open the app whether you have a ticket active of not. Also, it crashes immediately when testing on Android N. This is the first app I've seen this happen with (have uninstalled and cleared data/cache, still never opens beyond login prompt). Better get on top of this immediately, since the public release of Android N is just around the corner.
No warning that deleting then reinstalling app erases tickets! Spent $25 on tickets only to have them taken away! Now I can't get to work this week, worst app ever...
It's stupid you have to make a minimum purchase of $5.00, not everyone always has enough to buy the 5.00. Especially when all I want is a 2 and a half hour pass
It failed immediately I paid for 2 tickets, used the first one, and now the second is gone while I'm forever "syncing". This is truly f**king ridiculous. I want my money back you jackasses
Forever "syncing..." They fixed the default launch behavior (the app now opens to the My Tickets screen when you already have a valid ticket), but now it takes a stupidly long time (10+ seconds) to "sync" after launching before a ticket is ready to show the driver. I only use this app when I absolutely must; paper tickets have none of these problems. Also, I could care less about this RideTap nonsense. Focus on improving core functionality and UX, not feature-creep minutiae like this.
TriMet is the first transit agency to pilot RideTap. RideTap integrates with other popular alternate transportation apps, like car2go or Lyft, to help you get to and from your stop. Try it by tapping “More rides nearby” in the navigation tool.
Performance improvements and bug fixes. Enjoy!
