Cancelled Busses
by BiblioPod on 2019/11/11 05:48
I’ve been using RTD for years and was hoping that this app would finally give me the cancelled ride notifications that we all want and deserve but, no. No such luck. RTD will forever cancel busses without informing anyone at all. It’s literally a two second fix, but the developers of this app can’t make it happen. Instead, you can look forward to being informed that your bus is due at any moment despite the driver not showing up for work five hours ago.
R line frequently cancelled.
by Bigtexrockymt on 2019/11/04 15:45
I look to the radio wave symbol next to a train because that is supposed to represent real time. I rely on accuracy and real time to arrive at work on time. I have come to expect that one or two trains will be missed due to inaccurate info and cancellations, which are NEVER shone. This site is a best case scenario marketing platform. In going back to my polluting car because I know when it will get me to work.
Useless
by iavhfsa on 2019/10/31 14:03
Buses and rail are constantly late or off schedule and there is no update whatsoever.. useless
Not updated on route cancellations
by Kalin C. on 2019/10/28 17:46
Never seems to have updated info regarding cancelled trains or buses. Makes it impossible to trust. Especially with RTD cancelling routes and trains even more often, it's bad.
Useful
by HBlue1 on 2019/10/28 15:46
I haven’t figured out how to tell it I am going a different direction than the busses it is showing me and sometimes I can see every bus for a stop except mine. Not perfect but it’s cool when it works.
Horrible so run away fast
by CaliKC on 2019/09/27 00:25
Hard to use, nothing useful! Total wast of time
Not as good as Transit
by mac_guy1975 on 2019/09/19 15:54
While I really would like to use this app I’m finding it a lot more difficult to usr than the Transit app. It’s a lot harder to figure put what time a light rail train will be arriving at my stop.
Easy fix for 5 stars
by Brenton07 on 2019/09/11 13:37
This app has the most infuriating shortcoming, and it’s a 30 minute developer fix. When searching light rail, you have to start with “Line” instead of the destination like “Ridgegate”. No one says “I’m going to take Line Ridgegate”. Literally no one. Change search logic to “contains” instead of “starts with”. It’s that simple. And then this app would be one of the best. I’ve brought this up to the developer inbox multiple times, it’s insane they’ve redone the UI and still haven’t fixed this one issue. If there’s a reason for this I’m missing, I’m all ears.
Waste of Time
by Ravenmoon71 on 2019/09/05 15:46
This apps is SO inaccurate. “Live” is s joke as there is no trains within miles of the location it provides. It has yet to be reliable.
Life saver
by cylina machado on 2019/08/31 03:32
I love this app
Hah... why?
by ThatKit on 2019/08/26 22:14
Network error... I need it within the next week to go to the airport but looks like the app isn’t going to work with me.
This crap app
by Good nickname is gone on 2019/08/25 02:14
This app was a waste of energy and time that I will never get back! It has a one star rating and that’s only because it wouldn’t let me write anything less!!!
Denver RTD unfriendly for disabled people
by geocord on 2019/08/23 20:20
I have an iPhone 7+ and the apps that have the schedule and times is unbelievable inaccurate results for this, I’m reminded now of why a vehicle is so important, I gave it one star and it was changed to 2
Takes forever to guy just one darn ticket!!!!
by Whittier Woman on 2019/08/15 17:35
Had to search thru multiple screens to finally be able to buy a pass to the darn A Line. Horrible interface. Do not know how RTD could make it any more difficult.
It’s alright
by Rogu700 on 2019/07/26 19:23
The app is great, but the train times are not accurate. Already missed my second train thinking the time was accurate.
Inconsistent
by Fantastical pony on 2019/07/18 17:57
I have used this a couple times, half of the time it’s accurate, and the rest it isn’t. I’ll be waiting at a bus stop for a bus scheduled to come in 5 minutes, it never comes, I refresh the page and somehow that scheduled bus stop never existed and I’m left either waiting for thirty minutes to multiple hours more, or walking to where I need to be.
Unreliable
by 20maddog on 2019/07/03 12:20
I’ve waited for buses that show up on the app but the bus never shows up. This has happened more than once. I see the message stating that the buses position is based on the schedule which suggests to me, what is this app good for. I can read a schedule. It would be very helpful if a notification was presented stating that there will not be a bus. I accept that, I know it happens.
Useful, but lacks full operability
by hornetslax39 on 2019/06/06 14:39
Some routes disappear from stops occasionally, and the give feedback option doesn’t seem to work. Pressing review to move on to the next step does nothing.
Language function is buggy
by Joseph Blo on 2019/05/28 19:26
I set my cell phone language to Italian, which will make this RTD application turn to GERMAN. While English and Spanish work fine, this is very annoying.
Compliments to the developers🙌🏽
by Leahcim18 on 2019/05/18 02:04
This Ap is great! Thank you all for the quality product and updates. Truly is the best transit ap I’ve used!
Times are not accurate
by Masijr on 2019/05/13 20:14
Considering this is an RTD app, very frustrating when the schedule in app differs from the actual schedule.
One of the worst apps I’ve ever seen
by mclf79 on 2019/04/29 23:08
I don’t know if it’s the app designers’ incompetence or that of RTD, but the bus timings displayed on the app are often completely wrong.
Terrible
by jalthf on 2019/04/29 21:47
Just use google maps It is never accurate on time and very confusing about routes because they just disappear sometimes
Live tracking from favorites
by Dixon_Syder on 2019/04/24 00:45
Completely useless and doesn’t update. No way to refresh. I had high hopes for this app but complete garbage.
Not accurate
by laurenmore on 2019/04/23 22:18
Does not have the accurate times of when light rail comes. Please update!
Straight up horrible
by ZiiCee on 2019/04/17 04:36
Does not tell you all the routes u can take so the app lacks in detail and debth... anyone who uses this for a couple of days will notice they could have taken much simpler routes but the app makes things complicated and doesn’t tell you most options to get to destination
Useful only if you’re leaving now
by Steve Parker on 2019/04/12 14:57
It isn’t very easy to try to find today’s schedule for rides, just the one coming up next. I spent a few minutes poking around and still can’t find all the times that Skyride runs to the airport today. I can find every stop that the next run makes. But I can’t find the next run after that. Not to mention that the app is still tied to an iPhone size interface. On the iPad, there should be plenty of room to build a decent UI. The development team needs to find somebody who’s never use the app before, and watch them try to find data on it, to learn how non-developers think.
This App Doesn’t Work
by Gonzomgo on 2019/04/09 14:32
Anytime I try to use the app, it takes forever to figure out where I am or find a train in my area even if I’m at an actual light rail station. It’s not worth the hassle. Great idea though, just needs the bugs worked out.
Visited Denver on MLB Opening Day
by Apps2Review on 2019/04/08 16:48
Weekend and never been to Denver before found this app prior to going and had no issues worked great saw where we were going on each stop. If you have a kid under 16 use the student fee for the train/tram ride. Adults are 10 bucks but students only 3 bucks. Great app
Horrible service
by uriel@ on 2019/04/04 23:07
The bus driver left me i was waiting at the stop and passed by me and i waved my hand and kept going.
Absolutely embarrassing
by Tom mcridel on 2019/03/31 07:18
RTD app is absolutely the worst reliable source for accurate times. They calculate your travel time by their schedule rather than the actual time the bus is going to be there. You expect a bus at 1:00 pm and it doesn’t arrive leaving you to wait in Denver winter for another half hour before the next bus (if it does come) to arrive. The absolutely worst transit app ever!
C’mon
by MarkGMur on 2019/03/22 13:57
How do you buy a ticket on app? Who do you contact for help?
Creative Routes
by AveAve62 on 2019/03/01 15:02
I’ve stumbled over this Transit app and surprised by the clarity of options. In fact, some of the suggested routes have not shown up on other apps. So I have taken these new paths home. Very nice.
Fine but very limited
by BlazeJester on 2019/02/19 13:58
It works fine, not buggy. It generally tells you when your next bus will be. The Plan Trip feature does not always include all buses departing from your initiating point going to your destination, so there might be a better route but the app won’t tell you about it. What I don’t like is that it does not have a feature to tell you when the standard departure times are for a particular route (it will tell you the standard stops). You have to go to the RTD website and pull up the route info to get the times. Overall not a good substitute for paper route booklets.
Good idea. Bad timing
by S. J. Z. on 2019/02/05 20:46
I need to allow a buffer of 10 minutes on either side of the time the train says it will be here. I cannot trust the timeline.
Rating
by lolhnn on 2019/01/08 13:40
This app is perfect for me and my brother when we take the bus home from school
Don’t rely on it
by N.T.D.Y.L.4 on 2019/01/07 16:35
The arrival times are never correct. Busses arrive 2-10 minutes BEFORE the app shows them arriving. Thus if you rely on this app you are likely to miss your bus.
Update is terrible
by FearRaampage on 2018/12/27 22:50
I don’t know why you idiots thought it was a good idea to take away the “estimated arrival” times for the individual busses. I don’t want the departure time, and then have to do math to figure out what time I’m going to be at a certain stop to transfer busses, how am I to know I’m going to make it in time to transfer busses? You guys are idiots for making your app worse than what it was. I’d give it a 10th of a star if I could
Not good
by RyLeddy on 2018/12/20 21:12
If I had to rate this app it would be your favorite piece of cake falling off your fork before the first bite and the rest of the slice falling on the ground out of 10... A miserably infuriating experience
Add price
by Musicrulesdude on 2018/12/18 06:11
This app is great and could be a needed tool in Denver. It needs fine tuned and the price of each fare would be amazing and put this app on top
App doesn’t work
by braziers19 on 2018/12/14 17:16
Try to choose “train only” for directions and busses are still involved. Worst app for navigating Denver transportation.
Don’t trust walk times
by mike12234567 on 2018/12/09 19:28
Told me to leave at 1206 to catch a 1226 bus. The distance was 30 minutes walk at least. I’m 35 and in ok shape, not disabled or anything. So just be ware old timers this app straight up lies.
Great app!
by joe97ram on 2018/12/03 17:43
Love it
Bad
by samidiab on 2018/11/19 00:29
Confusing, not accurate, and should be replaced
Functional but
by Ilamuku00789 on 2018/10/31 13:35
App I good and useful. But there were several annoying things. When you zoom out too far on the map, the stations and stops disappear. Please make it so the icons stay no matter what so folks can find their nearest station that way. On the map view, the top left icon (Apple app) that appears to be to sort transportation types does not seem to change anything or open a window to edit filter on the map. Finally, when trying to submit feedback in the app, I cannot press the preview button to advance to the submission stage. So I can not submit feedback. The top right of my screen works fine; verified in a different window within the app.
Download to be misinformed.
by MABKL on 2018/10/30 00:28
Bus and train times are NOT accurate. And they have the same names on the bus whether they are going North or South. Or East and West. NO distinguishing way to tell without ASKING bus driver EACH TIME you get on a bus.
Terrible.
by D3$troyer1031 on 2018/10/09 18:44
I am a student who use the light rail to commute daily. The times are always off, I find myself constantly trying to find the quickest way home, and trains are always late, arrive earlier than it is listed on the app, or they never arrive at all. I find myself constantly trying to rearrange plans for the day because the app is so inaccurate. I am currently waiting for a train which said it would arrive by 12:34, but I got to the correct station, and when I refreshed the page it said the train had actually arrived around 12:27. Fairly disappointed with this app, I will be better off finding a new method to rely on for my transportation.
Real time issues
by JimmyFrapp on 2018/09/15 13:27
The app seems to lag 1 bus stop behind. Train navigation seems to be fine.
Times are off
by Bschmee on 2018/09/11 22:59
Way off, I’ve never once had a bus show up near the time listed in the app
I thought it was fake
by Hcufifiig on 2018/09/03 15:02
When I first saw this app, I thought it would be fake and wouldn’t actually have live times of the light rail. Boy was I wrong! It’s completely live and tells you all of the times that each train or bus comes to your area, and the estimated amount of time that it will take to get to your destination. I have used it daily for my commute to school!
Worst app I’ve tried!
by alieic on 2018/09/02 21:52
This app gives you no actual information a person can use!
RTD won’t admit they’re wrong
by Specialized_Rider on 2018/08/30 13:40
You can’t submit any app feedback because the submit button doesn’t work, which is what they do because half the busses won’t show up. So you can’t even tell them. RTD is cancer.
No train and bus tracking
by skiman65 on 2018/08/16 13:38
This app shows you route maps and where you are with respect to stops and stations, but doesn’t show you where the train is located on its route so you know how soon it is coming. This was what I was hoping for so I can select the soonest bus or train and time my arrival at the stop or station.
No Schedule Info
by marcwilli on 2018/08/10 02:25
I just need schedule info, but this app doesn’t have schedule info. Seems like a pretty basic need, don’t waste your time.
No way to contact & routing needs to be improved
by critical user of transit apps on 2018/07/25 16:40
Problem #1 is that their in-app “Send Feedback” page doesn’t allow you to submit your message, so there is no way to contact them without digging on the internet to try and find contact info. Proble #2: I wasted my time finding their website and typing out a message only to encounter another error with their contact form - HTTP 401 on their own form submission to their own site. If they can’t even maintain their basic website, I have no hopes for the app to be improved. Now, on to the app: The routing could use an refactor. For a trip from North Boulder to Union Station, a chosen route taking the 204 to FF2, why do you have the trip transfer at Broadway and 20th instead of the downtown boulder station? One reason to do this is to ensure that one can get on the FF2 with luggage or a bicycle. Another benefit is that when people board the FF2 at the station while the bus is just sitting idle is that the trip times will decrease with less people getting on the bus mid-route, decreasing dwell time. Making apps for public transportation should not just check a list of features, it should be tested and thought out to the actual experience. Otherwise it’s just another app in the App Store.
Font size issues
by youaredoingthisonpurpose on 2018/07/15 14:47
I have poor vision and have to have the font larger on my phone. This app does not take that into consideration and adjust accordingly so the words from my search results are a jumbled mess and unreadable.
Bus detours should be listed
by Fitmissjes on 2018/07/12 13:49
Trip planner has been sending me on routes with detours so I get stranded waiting for a connection that doesn’t come.
Works well if you already know what you are doing
by ShreddedLettuce on 2018/07/11 22:26
It’s a sound app that runs quickly and integrates the map well. It doesn’t help you figure out what kind of bus pass you need based on your route though, which seems like a big oversight. I don’t know what counts as local or regional (and the RTD website doesn’t specify either) so I have no idea what pass I need. Fix that and I’ll bump you up to 5 stars
Horrible timing.
by walkingisfaster on 2018/07/11 00:31
Bus never comes when it’s due. If you check how long til it arrives, it shows a bus icon approaching. No bus comes. I usually have to wait an additional 15 minutes because the app screwed up navigating the actual bus that was supposed to be due. I’m extremely disappointed. Always late. Do not use this app.
A little outdated
by CheshirexXxCat on 2018/06/26 13:43
It keeps telling me to go to stops that are no longer in use. This is the only issue I have with it, but it's a pretty big issue - I think you're overdue for an update.
Trains always late, not updated on app
by ncosiruktbagxukt on 2018/06/14 23:31
The trains are late 100% of the time and the app does not update delays so it shows that they are running on schedule, and they never are
Completely WHACK
by SavannaGlass on 2018/06/14 17:23
Tried using trip planner for a 15 minute train ride. App said 27 hours? Double checked. Parameters were correct. DELETE!!!!
Please improve this app!
by Geneyave30 on 2018/06/07 21:52
Not user friendly at all!!! Needs a lot of work!!
The most flawed app ever
by Acir515 on 2018/06/02 17:46
Does not account for “training vehicles.” Uses scheduled approximations of vehicle locations. I have used this app for several months and I trust emails from Nigerian princes more.
Doesn’t track late buses
by guyres on 2018/05/15 17:20
Once your bus is late, it stops tracking and moves on to the next regularly scheduled bus.
Pointless Stupid App
by robdixoniii on 2018/05/08 17:16
All I wanted was to use it to buy a light rail ticket and I can’t see how to do that. This app is an epic failure.
Not helpful
by EVcannot get there on 2018/04/19 13:27
App gives incorrect information
Needs some work
by skykingdave on 2018/04/13 16:49
This app seems a little wonky to me. I was actually sitting on the A-line train at the airport the other night and wondered what time my C-line connection would be at union Station. The app never gave me the A-line to C-line connection. It continually gave me bus routes from the airport to union then the C-line connection so proved to be of little use in trip planning. It was useful in looking up schedules and other good info about RTD so gave it 3 stars
Can’t find anything
by kspence303 on 2017/12/17 11:31
I want to get the schedule for a route. But it seems like I can only get to the one route that comes close to me. There is absolutely no way to get a simple list or map of routes. This app is completely useless.
Inflexible
by Hedio01 on 2017/12/14 19:00
Non intuitive app. Does not allow user to identify different work places. Does not give fare $$ with directions. Does not give you ability to run a future travel scenario. Was considering using transit instead of car but with this app.
Better than other apps
by Golden31 on 2017/10/13 19:15
Much better than other apps I tried and it so far has not tried to force me to play stupid games.
Useless
by AutumnAlchemist on 2017/09/08 20:51
This app is useless. You'd think for $2.60 PER DIRECTION they could do something helpful. Honestly, the website (when it's working) is easier to navigate. AND THE ADS ARE STUPID! I'm already paying a ridiculous amount to ride the bus and I'm already looking at those stupid ads. Yeah-I want to sit through a 30 second ad before I can look up my bus route.
Incomplete info
by John Andrew Obear on 2017/09/02 15:39
Not all bus lines available and not easy to use
Impressed
by Dessert master on 2017/07/29 01:14
This is a great improvement over the past apps. It runs almost like the transit app. I like the bus numbers. Sometimes I still use the transit app because it gives all of the buses in the area and the times they are going to arrive. This helps me to decide which corner of the intersection to go to if I missed one bus. It would be nice to have instructions as how to do things for those who are not intuitive. The destinations of the buses and the bus numbers are very helpful. Sometimes it would be nice to have the buses GPS to be updated a little more frequently. The number of RTD apps is confusing when looking for the most up to date one.

If you are a college student without a car(or any person with a bus pass), then this app is a must have. I recently turned my car in because the lease had run out and this app has helped me get all across the city&state. I have childhood friends who live an 1.5hr drive away and my Father and Brother live about an 1hr away. **The Plan Trip feature is the way to go👌🏽 it walks you through every single step. You could be illiterate and still be capable of understanding the directions. All-in-all, it's made a positive effect in my life. I hope you take the leap and it can do the same for you! Cop an RTD pass and this app A$AP Rocky!

For some reason I expected this app to be terrible, but it's actually amazing. There are some areas where it could use some streamlining but for basic uses it works perfectly
Great App
by 420jackinthebox on 2017/03/28 20:17
The lite rail times are right on. The bus times are so so. Maybe put a gps tracker on each bus that feeds to the app so we can have more accurate times. Sometimes the bus' are running behind.

by D3$troyer1031 on 2018/10/09 18:44
I am a student who use the light rail to commute daily. The times are always off, I find myself constantly trying to find the quickest way home, and trains are always late, arrive earlier than it is listed on the app, or they never arrive at all. I find myself constantly trying to rearrange plans for the day because the app is so inaccurate. I am currently waiting for a train which said it would arrive by 12:34, but I got to the correct station, and when I refreshed the page it said the train had actually arrived around 12:27. Fairly disappointed with this app, I will be better off finding a new method to rely on for my transportation.
Easy fix for 5 stars
by Brenton07 on 2019/09/11 13:37
This app has the most infuriating shortcoming, and it’s a 30 minute developer fix. When searching light rail, you have to start with “Line” instead of the destination like “Ridgegate”. No one says “I’m going to take Line Ridgegate”. Literally no one. Change search logic to “contains” instead of “starts with”. It’s that simple. And then this app would be one of the best. I’ve brought this up to the developer inbox multiple times, it’s insane they’ve redone the UI and still haven’t fixed this one issue. If there’s a reason for this I’m missing, I’m all ears.
A little outdated
by CheshirexXxCat on 2018/06/26 13:43
It keeps telling me to go to stops that are no longer in use. This is the only issue I have with it, but it's a pretty big issue - I think you're overdue for an update.
Works well if you already know what you are doing
by ShreddedLettuce on 2018/07/11 22:26
It’s a sound app that runs quickly and integrates the map well. It doesn’t help you figure out what kind of bus pass you need based on your route though, which seems like a big oversight. I don’t know what counts as local or regional (and the RTD website doesn’t specify either) so I have no idea what pass I need. Fix that and I’ll bump you up to 5 stars
Visited Denver on MLB Opening Day
by Apps2Review on 2019/04/08 16:48
Weekend and never been to Denver before found this app prior to going and had no issues worked great saw where we were going on each stop. If you have a kid under 16 use the student fee for the train/tram ride. Adults are 10 bucks but students only 3 bucks. Great app
Needs some work
by skykingdave on 2018/04/13 16:49
This app seems a little wonky to me. I was actually sitting on the A-line train at the airport the other night and wondered what time my C-line connection would be at union Station. The app never gave me the A-line to C-line connection. It continually gave me bus routes from the airport to union then the C-line connection so proved to be of little use in trip planning. It was useful in looking up schedules and other good info about RTD so gave it 3 stars
Functional but
by Ilamuku00789 on 2018/10/31 13:35
App I good and useful. But there were several annoying things. When you zoom out too far on the map, the stations and stops disappear. Please make it so the icons stay no matter what so folks can find their nearest station that way. On the map view, the top left icon (Apple app) that appears to be to sort transportation types does not seem to change anything or open a window to edit filter on the map. Finally, when trying to submit feedback in the app, I cannot press the preview button to advance to the submission stage. So I can not submit feedback. The top right of my screen works fine; verified in a different window within the app.
Cancelled Busses
by BiblioPod on 2019/11/11 05:48
I’ve been using RTD for years and was hoping that this app would finally give me the cancelled ride notifications that we all want and deserve but, no. No such luck. RTD will forever cancel busses without informing anyone at all. It’s literally a two second fix, but the developers of this app can’t make it happen. Instead, you can look forward to being informed that your bus is due at any moment despite the driver not showing up for work five hours ago.
Inconsistent
by Fantastical pony on 2019/07/18 17:57
I have used this a couple times, half of the time it’s accurate, and the rest it isn’t. I’ll be waiting at a bus stop for a bus scheduled to come in 5 minutes, it never comes, I refresh the page and somehow that scheduled bus stop never existed and I’m left either waiting for thirty minutes to multiple hours more, or walking to where I need to be.
Unreliable
by 20maddog on 2019/07/03 12:20
I’ve waited for buses that show up on the app but the bus never shows up. This has happened more than once. I see the message stating that the buses position is based on the schedule which suggests to me, what is this app good for. I can read a schedule. It would be very helpful if a notification was presented stating that there will not be a bus. I accept that, I know it happens.
No train and bus tracking
by skiman65 on 2018/08/16 13:38
This app shows you route maps and where you are with respect to stops and stations, but doesn’t show you where the train is located on its route so you know how soon it is coming. This was what I was hoping for so I can select the soonest bus or train and time my arrival at the stop or station.
R line frequently cancelled.
by Bigtexrockymt on 2019/11/04 15:45
I look to the radio wave symbol next to a train because that is supposed to represent real time. I rely on accuracy and real time to arrive at work on time. I have come to expect that one or two trains will be missed due to inaccurate info and cancellations, which are NEVER shone. This site is a best case scenario marketing platform. In going back to my polluting car because I know when it will get me to work.
Awesome
by Julia765 on 2017/06/06 17:04
For some reason I expected this app to be terrible, but it's actually amazing. There are some areas where it could use some streamlining but for basic uses it works perfectly
Update is terrible
by FearRaampage on 2018/12/27 22:50
I don’t know why you idiots thought it was a good idea to take away the “estimated arrival” times for the individual busses. I don’t want the departure time, and then have to do math to figure out what time I’m going to be at a certain stop to transfer busses, how am I to know I’m going to make it in time to transfer busses? You guys are idiots for making your app worse than what it was. I’d give it a 10th of a star if I could
Creative Routes
by AveAve62 on 2019/03/01 15:02
I’ve stumbled over this Transit app and surprised by the clarity of options. In fact, some of the suggested routes have not shown up on other apps. So I have taken these new paths home. Very nice.
Straight up horrible
by ZiiCee on 2019/04/17 04:36
Does not tell you all the routes u can take so the app lacks in detail and debth... anyone who uses this for a couple of days will notice they could have taken much simpler routes but the app makes things complicated and doesn’t tell you most options to get to destination
Great App
by 420jackinthebox on 2017/03/28 20:17
The lite rail times are right on. The bus times are so so. Maybe put a gps tracker on each bus that feeds to the app so we can have more accurate times. Sometimes the bus' are running behind.
Useful, but lacks full operability
by hornetslax39 on 2019/06/06 14:39
Some routes disappear from stops occasionally, and the give feedback option doesn’t seem to work. Pressing review to move on to the next step does nothing.
Absolutely embarrassing
by Tom mcridel on 2019/03/31 07:18
RTD app is absolutely the worst reliable source for accurate times. They calculate your travel time by their schedule rather than the actual time the bus is going to be there. You expect a bus at 1:00 pm and it doesn’t arrive leaving you to wait in Denver winter for another half hour before the next bus (if it does come) to arrive. The absolutely worst transit app ever!
Compliments to the developers🙌🏽
by Leahcim18 on 2019/05/18 02:04
This Ap is great! Thank you all for the quality product and updates. Truly is the best transit ap I’ve used!
Useless
by AutumnAlchemist on 2017/09/08 20:51
This app is useless. You'd think for $2.60 PER DIRECTION they could do something helpful. Honestly, the website (when it's working) is easier to navigate. AND THE ADS ARE STUPID! I'm already paying a ridiculous amount to ride the bus and I'm already looking at those stupid ads. Yeah-I want to sit through a 30 second ad before I can look up my bus route.
Better than other apps
by Golden31 on 2017/10/13 19:15
Much better than other apps I tried and it so far has not tried to force me to play stupid games.
Real time issues
by JimmyFrapp on 2018/09/15 13:27
The app seems to lag 1 bus stop behind. Train navigation seems to be fine.
Horrible timing.
by walkingisfaster on 2018/07/11 00:31
Bus never comes when it’s due. If you check how long til it arrives, it shows a bus icon approaching. No bus comes. I usually have to wait an additional 15 minutes because the app screwed up navigating the actual bus that was supposed to be due. I’m extremely disappointed. Always late. Do not use this app.

This app is perfect for me and my brother when we take the bus home from school
Language function is buggy
by Joseph Blo on 2019/05/28 19:26
I set my cell phone language to Italian, which will make this RTD application turn to GERMAN. While English and Spanish work fine, this is very annoying.
Not as good as Transit
by mac_guy1975 on 2019/09/19 15:54
While I really would like to use this app I’m finding it a lot more difficult to usr than the Transit app. It’s a lot harder to figure put what time a light rail train will be arriving at my stop.
Add price
by Musicrulesdude on 2018/12/18 06:11
This app is great and could be a needed tool in Denver. It needs fine tuned and the price of each fare would be amazing and put this app on top
Denver RTD unfriendly for disabled people
by geocord on 2019/08/23 20:20
I have an iPhone 7+ and the apps that have the schedule and times is unbelievable inaccurate results for this, I’m reminded now of why a vehicle is so important, I gave it one star and it was changed to 2
This App Doesn’t Work
by Gonzomgo on 2019/04/09 14:32
Anytime I try to use the app, it takes forever to figure out where I am or find a train in my area even if I’m at an actual light rail station. It’s not worth the hassle. Great idea though, just needs the bugs worked out.
It’s alright
by Rogu700 on 2019/07/26 19:23
The app is great, but the train times are not accurate. Already missed my second train thinking the time was accurate.
Can’t find anything
by kspence303 on 2017/12/17 11:31
I want to get the schedule for a route. But it seems like I can only get to the one route that comes close to me. There is absolutely no way to get a simple list or map of routes. This app is completely useless.
Takes forever to guy just one darn ticket!!!!
by Whittier Woman on 2019/08/15 17:35
Had to search thru multiple screens to finally be able to buy a pass to the darn A Line. Horrible interface. Do not know how RTD could make it any more difficult.
Inflexible
by Hedio01 on 2017/12/14 19:00
Non intuitive app. Does not allow user to identify different work places. Does not give fare $$ with directions. Does not give you ability to run a future travel scenario. Was considering using transit instead of car but with this app.
Font size issues
by youaredoingthisonpurpose on 2018/07/15 14:47
I have poor vision and have to have the font larger on my phone. This app does not take that into consideration and adjust accordingly so the words from my search results are a jumbled mess and unreadable.
RTD won’t admit they’re wrong
by Specialized_Rider on 2018/08/30 13:40
You can’t submit any app feedback because the submit button doesn’t work, which is what they do because half the busses won’t show up. So you can’t even tell them. RTD is cancer.
Good idea. Bad timing
by S. J. Z. on 2019/02/05 20:46
I need to allow a buffer of 10 minutes on either side of the time the train says it will be here. I cannot trust the timeline.
Useful
by HBlue1 on 2019/10/28 15:46
I haven’t figured out how to tell it I am going a different direction than the busses it is showing me and sometimes I can see every bus for a stop except mine. Not perfect but it’s cool when it works.
Terrible
by jalthf on 2019/04/29 21:47
Just use google maps It is never accurate on time and very confusing about routes because they just disappear sometimes
This crap app
by Good nickname is gone on 2019/08/25 02:14
This app was a waste of energy and time that I will never get back! It has a one star rating and that’s only because it wouldn’t let me write anything less!!!
Not updated on route cancellations
by Kalin C. on 2019/10/28 17:46
Never seems to have updated info regarding cancelled trains or buses. Makes it impossible to trust. Especially with RTD cancelling routes and trains even more often, it's bad.
Live tracking from favorites
by Dixon_Syder on 2019/04/24 00:45
Completely useless and doesn’t update. No way to refresh. I had high hopes for this app but complete garbage.
Doesn’t track late buses
by guyres on 2018/05/15 17:20
Once your bus is late, it stops tracking and moves on to the next regularly scheduled bus.
