  • Has potential Oct 8, 2015

    By Shuttle Rider
    This app has the potential to be really useful, but it lacks in several areas. 1) The app doesn't remember what institution or route you use regularly. 2) The app sometimes shows a shuttle in route when none actually exists. 3) Like others have mentioned, the app no longer gives you an estimate of when the shuttle will arrive. 4) After selecting your route you must exit 2 menus in order to see the map instead of going directly to the map after selecting the route. Also, The 'X's to exit the menus are right next to other links making it easy to accidentally hit the wrong thing. Both of these are particularly inconvenient when you're rushing to see when the shuttle is coming. The app is better than nothing, but still leaves a lot to be desired.

    This app makes going to class soooo much better! Especially when you don’t want to sit outside waiting for the bus, you can just chill in your apartment and watch the bus from your phone. Seeing all the different routes and stops is also super great!

    I use this app every day. I no longer have to wait in the snow for my bus to come. I just pull up my app and I know exactly where my bus is and how long will be until it gets to my stop. I love the favorite feature!!!

    Thank you, creators! I wasn't using the trolley, bc I didn't want to risk missing my movie nor wait in the heat. I love the Woodlands, now! --Quick to install & open. (1st Use, Seek: Woodlands Township, not "Town Center" on ride systems list.) --Suggested: bldg labels (not just the stops) & no touch required to see label. --No dot showing where I am. --Need more detailed directional map. I didn't know, from map, if trolley cutting through Cinemark 17 lot was heading to or from Market Str.

    Set your favorites so it’s easy to call up the route you wanna see. It’s not the sleekest app but all I need it to do is tell me when the next shuttle arrives. The fact you can watch the location of the shuttle as it travels is cool.

  • Clunky interface, limited functionality Aug 24, 2019

    If you’re not familiar with the area, this app won’t help you one bit. It’s designed with the assumption that you already know where you are, which bus route you need, and where the nearest stop is for that route. It doesn’t show you where you are or help you plan how to get from A to B. It will show you one route at a time and the current location of any bus on that route, and that’s it. And for an app that pretty much only does one thing, it doesn’t even do it well. The “routes” and “current location” icons are confusingly similar, your location isn’t shown on the map, and the menu buttons are backwards of convention. When selecting a route, the route icons are much larger than necessary, resulting in the menu taking up way too much of the screen. Also, selecting a new route resets the map’s center and zoom level, which would be fine if it showed a dot for your location, but instead you have to manually find yourself on the map again. Bottom line: this app is okay for showing you where busses are, and not okay for anything else you’d expect it to do.

    Terrible. Shuttles never on time, if they come at all. I've reported this problem AT LEAST four times. No response. GPS tracker is rarely correct and spins in circles. The app will say arriving and nothing ever comes. Then it will say departing but it never even came. It's really wasting my time and getting on my last nerve. I've been sitting here for 25 minutes while 2 shuttles were supposed to have come already. SMH. Edit: the third shuttle wasnt on time but at least it came

  • Trash May 7, 2019

    By wraithequestrain
    This app is the quintessential example of why cross-platform application frameworks produce pure trash. The UI is nonstandard, and glacially slow, the app is full of bugs and strange and weird interactions. There’s no schedule, just the departure time of the next shuttle/bus. It takes an unbelievably long time to actually get to the departure times. Also the word “security” might be entirely unfamiliar to this developer as I can look at the routes, real time location and routes of all of the companies, universities and communities that RideSystems supports all within this same app. This is a monumentally bad design and is ready-made to be abused. Overall it’s better to just wait on the side of the street wondering if a shuttle or bus will arrive than to use this sorry excuse for an app. The sad thing is this company probably charges an exorbitant amount of money for this trash.

    Emailed the app developers of issues in this app, no response. Cannot count on this app for where the shuttle is, a serious lag issue of where it's at in real time. It will say it's arriving ay my stop in 10 minutes, and 2 minutes later the shuttle has already passed my stop. The route that our shuttle takes, I have to wait 30+ minutes for the next one to arrive.

  • App is awful Mar 7, 2021

    By Logan Splinter
    The pickup times are 10-30min off where the trolley’s location is. That is if the app even updates correctly to show where the trolly is. You have no idea where your location is compared to the nearest trolly stop, if you click the location button is way off. The only thing this app is good for is seeing where the trolly stops are, even then you have to open google maps to see how to get there from your location. Other than that your guessing when the trolly comes. App needs work.

    This app changed my life. If I could rate 10 stars, I would. It literally tracks every single bus you could ever even imagine getting on. Beyond that, it has a streamlined menu that is simply #lit

    I Love this app. No more guessing when our bus will be here, or calling the bus company and them saying that ur bus will be there in 2 minutes, but it's really 10 minutes away.

    Helpful. Ocassionaly has glitches but think that is result of GPS on bus. One time I was about to miss last bus to my town. Driver on bus I was on called and asked him to wait for me at stop. All because I could track in real time.

  • Looks Different Mar 6, 2019

    By Cocococo10
    Took a little while to get used to the new look and placement but now I’m liking it better. I really like the alarm feature so I can forget watching the clock and my phone notifies me when it is getting close.

    Tulsa Transit puts out new schedules every 3 months. I looked up route 210 and the date on the pdf was 2017. you might want to have a database operator check for updates through the Tulsa Transit website for my area as well as for others.

    It doesn't work in certain areas. Sometimes you can track a bus & sometimes you can't. Sometimes you get departure & arrival times & sometimes you don't. I use this for GLTC buses. I don't know how it is w/ other transportation services.

    Almost none of the features that it has actually work. It doesn't notify you AT ALL when the bus arrives at the stop or anything like that. Sometimes it stops for a good few minutes and all of the sudden the bus is like 5 stops down from when it was frozen! ONLY 2 stars because its better than my school's tracker at least.

  • Needs routing across multiple bus routes. Dec 17, 2020

    By Emtaylor1
    Our community has multiple bus routes and has adopted this to track them. However, there is no indication of when/where to transfer to other routes in order to get to your final destination. Also, you can’t even view multiple routes at the same time to see where they might intersect. Wish this would integrate with Google maps.

  • Written by a 3rd grader Nov 29, 2018

    By hdhrhrhandm
    I swear the app users have never been on a transit bus and farmed their coding to Mrs. Goodson’s 3rd-grade class. Since some things works it’s not a 1. The interface is not intuitive, the buttons are confusing and why the hell am I not showing up as the blue dot on the map? Even coffee shops with app show me as the blue dot on the map!! But these yahoos can’t master that? Please do better...I wish my transit system had bought a worthwhile product vs this garbage.

    It's alright. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Honestly I prefer moovit, though my school decided to go with this app. Overall, I prefer to use the written time over this as it tends to be accurate except for the times when the bus is late. Otherwise this app is somehow useless and would require some improvement.
