It works fine most of the time. Sometimes I don't receive important notifications even though they are actived. I went to active then, but they already were, but I still missed some. It is not very user friendly, but that's pretty much the only app available to get the info, besides Google maps which is not always easy to use for this purpose either. Now as of July 10th 2023, the app says I have to update to keep using it, so that's what I did. Now the app says it can't update the database!!

Bonjour Eric, merci pour votre message et désolé pour les inconvénients rencontrés. La mise à jour a nécessité un moment hier soir pour se synchroniser avec nos serveurs. La situation devrait s'être résorbée. Est-ce votre cas ? Si le problème persiste, vous pouvez nous contacter à Merci, l'Équipe Chrono.

One of the best app experiences - period! Allows for practical use of Montreal's fantastic and extensive bus system, with accurate arrival times, crowding info, location tracking, and route mapping. One suggestion, add a view that shows all STM routes so you can select the one you need if not familiar with the city.

I like the app but I tried to find out how many tickets I had left on my Opus card and the reader didn't work. I've used this function before without a problem.
