I just waited 45 minutes for two buses to drive past me because it was after 10:35 pm. The app told me the buses were arriving but not that I was going to be stuck all night. If the app made it clear the bus would arrive but not depart somehow I would not have wasted my time and risked being in a dark and scary place all alone at night.

I've been an unhappy subscriber to this application for several years now. New features are necessarily needed, just some actual validity to the features that are supposedly standard w/ this application. If I really have a lavish flat somewhere in the south of France; guess what, I don't tell people I DO! This cocksucking app. updated in "Real Time" maybe the first 18 months but since then, its done nothing more than ...more »
You can currently filter by route number, but not by direction/destination. For example, the Community Transit 105 and 106 buses stop at stop number 2134 (Puget Sound, Canyon Park P-R, bay 2) when headed South to Bothell, or North to Mariner P-R. If I'm only interested in buses going north, I'd like to filter out destinations/directions that I'm not interested in.
I have transfers at transit centers where I can catch different buses that stop at different bays. It would be nice to be able to see arrivals of selected buses on one screen instead of having to check multiple starred stops that are actually at the same location.
Alerts can currently only be scheduled for up to 30 minutes before a bus arrives. It takes up to 45 minutes to drive to my Park&Ride in rush hour traffic, so by the time my alert for that bus goes off I already missed it. Also, having to select the time in integers is a mistake. The option should be a number wheel with any arbitrary number of minutes on it, up to at least an hour.
Very similar to the system that Uber uses, simply create a profile for the driver on duty and be able to track when they are on each route. This would also enable people to leave comments or criticism after each ride. Simple rate your experience after each trip
It would be nice to add your personal frequent destinations (such as Home, Work, School, John's House, etc) for easy access in the Trip Planner feature. Typing in the full address can get tedious, it would be more user friendly if you could assign a location a specific name and only search said name.
I'd love to have a low-friction way to give the bus drivers kudos when they have a smooth ride, or when they are especially kind with a difficult passenger, or show care for cyclists and other road users in a way that their managers can also see. (Maybe also complaints, but aim for positive reinforcement.)
So that I can help transit planners understand my travel patterns, I would like to optionally enable data sharing that would record my full commute routes and other trips that use transit, including the walking portions.
I think there should be a second option when you set an alarm for a bus such that instead of being like a text message, the sound and vibration is more like an actual alarm where it doesn't stop until you dismiss it. The notification style does interrupt currently playing audio very well and is easy to miss.
I've often found myself missing busses during Seattle's many marches and 5ks because of tiny signs posted on the physical bus schedules. If there was a way to coordinate with the Seattle metro that would allow for the app (which I love and always use) to update the bus schedule to let us know if the bus line in question has moved to a different location. Thanks again.
Provide a feature for a user to check-in on a bus route, which allows the app to use the phone's GPS to provide more accurate and timely route information for buses. If there was away for check-in/check-out to be done automatically that would be even better!
Do you have any plans to go to other municipalities? I'm in the Hartford, CT. area.
