Great but times tend to be off
by AspiredGuard20 on 2021/12/28 16:01
It’s a great app and does help, but I seem to always run in to issues in regards to the accuracy of the times for arrivals. There are instances where it may be off anywhere from a few minutes to a couple days. Not certain if that’s just a user error or not, but if that could be resolved, I think it would be as close to perfect as it could be.
Transit Info Literally Anywhere!
by froggy sue on 2021/12/06 15:05
I’ve told many peeps about Whiz. That they don’t need to rely on local transit info, the Whiz knows. Thank you fir such a comprehensive data base.

Not accurate eta (las Vegas rtc)
by hskdkenskcjensn on 2021/10/20 20:00
A year ago this app was amazing! It got all the bus arrival times and routes for the most part accurate. But now when I try to plan my trip the bus arrival times and routes are never right and I end up having to change routes. And then when a bus is late, it just recalculates the route to a whole different schedule. It doesn’t even show me old trips anymore and only future ones which don’t help. I rlly miss how this app used to be.
Overwhelming
by Canosita on 2021/10/08 14:35
I just want to get to the airport. I set the timer for the date in the future, and no matter which way I try it - the app gives me times for now, 30 mins, 45 mins etc. But, not for the future time I put in. So frustrating
Unreliable
by Costard504 on 2021/10/01 14:26
In my area this app routinely overpredicts arrival ETAs by 20% or more. It took a half dozen missed buses in a row(!) before I realized it was the app and not bad luck. It additionally will “lose” buses but, strangely, only for particular stops on a route. Kind of useless for bus transport.
Works Great
by Qmannn on 2021/09/23 20:54
So far the tomes have been pretty accurate give or take a few minutes sometimes. I found its better to be early in case something is early like a buses. Bart is pretty on time mostly. Overall I’ve love this app. It keeps me aware of time my time. Lol... ✌️🏾
Useless for me

Stop that.
Was perfect, updates took away good features
by AllisonSandra on 2021/08/04 19:55
I was using this app since moving to Boston and it was perfect. Now I can’t easily go back and look at the departure time the app suggests for the trip. This app is easiest to set a leave time or arrival time, preferred mode of transportation, and choose if you want less transfers or walking. This app also has the best and most updated map which makes finding exact destinations easy. But now I can’t tell when the app wants me to leave and it makes it unusable for me personally despite the other amazing functions. Stop the minimalism!!! I just wanna see times on my trips again!! I plan the night before :(
Reliable for the most part

Works alright but sometime disconnects and has to reconnect, annoying at times
Annoying to look at
by anuone80001 on 2021/06/08 18:07
It tries to put too much info in 1 screen. When need a quick easy glance but in middle of busy day. It’s the last thing a need. It’s good about time keeping track of bus, but I wish I could find something with a lot less details unless I ask for it.
Do not use in Pittsburgh

Not efficient for tracking
by Pat Chicago on 2020/09/23 23:55
This is a “train tracker” app and it does a poor job here in chicago. I understand that the CTA in Chicago is very off and on anyway, but this app doesn’t change with train changes and is very unreliable. I would not suggest using this.
A sundial works better
by Drewguy34 on 2020/09/17 15:21
This is by far the worst app I have ever used. The bus tracking and scheduling are 100% off. I have tested the times at which it says a bus would show up, and the bus does not show up for another 10 to 15 minutes. More so, the buses arrive either earlier than mentioned, Too late, or not even at all. You would have better luck determining when the buses arrive by creating your very own sundial. I would also recommend to invest in your own bus system. It would probably take less time to establish a new bus company and it would for a bus to arrive on time.
Accuracy
by cbutle on 2020/08/22 13:50
So far since I had this app it has only been off a little bit once. Other than that it is spot on with the times of arrival almost to the minute
Good app
by Octo17 on 2020/08/21 22:25
Really helpful to view bus schedules and arrival time.

Terrible
Not a good app
by St@r4_29/5 on 2020/08/04 03:24
I was forced to use this app because it got rid of the PDX transit app. It is terrible at telling when buses arrive and for getting routes. Also terrible for planning trips in advance because it does not provide times or information about the route. I went back to the PDX transit app because it was better but now I am forced to use whiz and it has not gotten better but worse. It is clear my company was paid to push it because why push a product that fails to at what it designed to do. I will be looking for another app.
Worthless for scheduling
by Zaide Ghannoush on 2020/07/19 23:57
The app won’t show the times buses run when you select the time you want. It chooses a different time to show like the day before or after.

Doesnt update direction once the bus has arrived or tell you direction of what bus youre looking for if youre a first time user of public transportation. Its not very accurate on times and not so easy to navigate the app

“Network error”
by pickanickn4m3 on 2020/03/04 16:20
“Network errors” nonstop with the recent update, whether on WiFi or wireless, even as other more data-intensive apps and websites work just fine. To be clear, this was a problem even prior to recent updates, but has gotten much worse to the point of barely being usable. Full of bugs otherwise as well.
Buggy Update?
by ethanr04 on 2020/03/02 17:48
All my app will show me after the last update is one train line that’s not at all the closest or fastest option. I can select the bus only filter and it still doesn’t show any bus routes.

Only vaguely accurate
by Big, Big John on 2020/02/20 14:57
2/2020: Several version updates later, but the core issue remains — it’s still only vaguely accurate. It doesn’t seem to reflect the revised Purple Line (Chicago train) schedule from a November, and if trains are running late it doesn’t reflect their real timing. Plus, it will say that a train is “Due” at my station for about 5 minutes before it finally appears. ———— Train times are only accurate plus or minus about 3 minutes (at least for Chicago Purple Line). Plenty of times it will say “Due” when no train is in sight (and there are long sight lines at my stations). Other times it says “3 minutes” as the train is pulling into the station. Also. The future times aren’t updated to the latest schedule (CTA revised train times in April — last month).
Not user friendly

Can never find live updates of buses or gives information for opposite end of the lines...
This app...
by Colsgiy2010 on 2020/02/10 23:16
This app never keeps anything close to the right GPS location. The can say the bus is in front of me and 20 mins later it shows up. As if that is not a pain the fact that the constantly freezes when try to plan a trip or look at the inaccurate gps , and this cause you to close out and star over.
Crashes repeatedly
by Quarkapottamus on 2020/01/22 17:16
When trying to open the app, it crashes repeatedly. Upon the third or fourth try it will finally open but then gets stuck. Was my go-to app for transit and now it’s getting deleted. What a shame.
Less reliable than old app
by Readytogo123 on 2020/01/16 17:09
My local transit switched to Whiz. I like I can save routes but it is no longer real time even though it says it is. It is based on scheduled time which varies widely from reality. Will look for an alternative unless they get gps fixed.
Almost makes taking the CTA enjoyable!

Lot of functionality but some big gaps.
by 111718 on 2020/01/11 15:42
It’s hard to see whether times of buses are north, south, west or east without going to another page. Bus number is missing too. This was a great feature in the old tracker. If you need to know the time a specific bus is arriving.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF IN CHICAGO
by Jackawackaflame on 2020/01/08 19:04
This app blows. I downloaded it when the old transit app went down. Wildly inaccurate. Busses/trains are either several minutes early or late.

For Philadelphia you can wait for a bus that never comes and track the passing of a virtual bus that came by the stop and left you. Not useful or reliable.
Still looking for a good transit app
by Ms. Frenchie on 2019/12/17 02:00
Thanks for getting me thoroughly lost, telling me to take the wrong bus and being way off on the bus arrival times.
Garbage
by ShayMarieK on 2019/12/15 23:51
Tons of different information shoved into one section, screen freezes and buttons don’t work half the the time. Closes directions out of nowhere. Impossible to understand anything because absolutely nothing is organized. Do yourself a favor and use literally any other app.
Little help
by Fay Nation on 2019/12/03 18:31
Bus are always running late so this app barely helps...
Change it back
by labardoodle on 2019/11/27 13:31
Was forced to switch to this version of the app after the previous version stopped being updated. They got rid of the star/favorites that mapped out your favorite stops and now just had them on a list, making it just a little more difficult to figure out.
Glitches upon glitches...
by *Birdy* :<> on 2019/11/20 20:03
Sometimes I’m able to use this app, but usually the outbound and inbound routes are reversed. One route list having the opposite one’s information isn’t exactly helpful.
Portland Whiz is terrible
by brb323 on 2019/11/18 00:43
The schedules are so inaccurate as to be useless. Yesterday the tracker lost track of the Orange line I was riding. It’s estimate of arrival was off by half an hour. The earlier app worked very well and seems to still be available, so I’m switching back. TriMet get your software act together. Inexcusable for an agency our taxes pay for and providing transportation for the city of Portland.

Wrong directions from Pittsburgh Airport to Pitt
by GoBears2018 on 2019/10/06 19:56
To get from Pittsburgh Airport to University of Pittsburgh you take the 28x Airport Flyer. Whiz says take a greyhound bus then transfer to some other bus. 100% wrong.

Way off
by pentagramwookie on 2019/09/23 02:28
I just got picked up by a bus at 10:10am. The app said on bus was coming at 9:58, it didn’t show up. This app said the next bus wasn’t coming til 10:20, way off! Please fix! Update: this app only works when busses run on schedule and which is hardly ever, so if a bus isn’t coming as scheduled because a driver didn’t come in to work or the bus is running late or early the app is useless. If this app worked correctly I wouldn’t be starving right now, really annoyed at it. Hope to find another app that actually tracks the buses.
Fine
by antpip on 2019/09/14 22:16
The app is fine but if your font size is bigger than normal you can’t use the app.
Features don’t work, train times inaccurate
by ChloePaige90 on 2019/09/13 12:18
“Report an issue feature” is broken and does not allow you to report issues in train service. The app does not do the one thing you need it to: notify you of delays in service. Been sitting the platform watching a stationary train car for 30 minutes with no end in sight. Train arrival and departure times do not match real life.
So far so awesome!
by ridingMo on 2019/09/07 20:27
User friendly, detailed sarray of nearby stops and favorites quickly available! Real-time gps update of busses and trains so you know if your are going to be able to make it to the stop on time! Very cool! I’m glad I was able to restore my purchase from the old version as well! I was kind of frustrated when I heard you guys weren’t going to be updating the old app because I hate ads!

This is my go-to app for Boston transit (MBTA). The Live Tracking functionality is great; being able to save specific stops on routes in differing directions is really nice. The overall design is slicker than its predecessor, and feels faster. Interested to see how notifications will go, overall live tracking accuracy, and how route “wellness” is measured. Congrats to the team for upgrading the Boston app to Whiz!
Make the Bus part of your life!!!
by aquaponicsman on 2019/06/27 02:35
Been riding HRT for several years, took me 50 years to give up owning a vehicle. Guess I was addicted...? But am getting more exercise walking to &amp; from home to bus stop (One mile each way). Have much more spendable income w/o worries: gas, oil, insurance, traffic, repairs , road rage, parking fees, body scratches from disrespectful drivers. My bus pass is still $35 per year unlimited travel 24/7. Such a deal!!!
No live feed and STILL ads
by phay jjj on 2019/05/22 16:19
When I click on departure so I can see the live feed, I get nothing. It exit out of the app. I am going to write a review in the APP store so everyone becomes privy to this. It DOES NOT PROVIDE ME WITH LIVE FEED! And still ads are appearing after paying $4.99 to upgrade!
Nooo if you have time than ye!!!!
by briandataveras on 2019/05/14 21:41
You guys have to improve and work on your app more!!! The bus is never on time!!!! I was waiting for a bus 40 minutes and according to the app the bus is supposed to be here 45 min ago

Not updated on bus routes
by imnotgoingtomakeanickname on 2019/04/30 16:36
The app hasn’t managed to update for a lot of buses in our area. This makes it hard to use and right now the send feedback option in the app is broken as well.
New version no longer reports any data
by poonkorama on 2019/03/26 15:33
In its previous iterations, this app was great. Reliable and convenient to use. Then it was rebranded as Whiz without any noticeable changes. More recently this app simply stopped reporting any data for any of the transit lines. Across all transit agencies, the same stock message (no departures scheduled) appeared. Checked all connections and cleared app cache. Even deleted and reinstalled the app. Still nothing. Other transit tracking apps are reporting fine, so clearly the app is to blame here. Deleted this, and have switched to a more reliable app.
Good, but
by ★ ☆ Gabby☆ ★ on 2019/02/25 16:49
It were easier to add specific stops by their code. Sometimes I have to play a guessing game to the name of the stop to make sure I put the right one instead of one close by. It would be easier if I could just put the code that is on the sign on the stop. Also, sometimes if there is a station where a lot of buses leave from I can’t pick a certain bus to just appear, and I can’t pick that specific line to go a specific location. For example, if a line is called 712, and it goes to place 1. But then if It goes back to its origin place 2. I wish I could Just save it from where it goes to place 1 instead of both directions showing because it can get confusing sometimes. Otherwise, it’s the best app I have found and really accurate.

Look, its not NYC but the bus system has a lot of routes and this makes it easiest to weigh your options. Its better than the official UTA app and the google tool doesnt combine train with bus. I have no dl and i use this one
Not showing buses
by Northerngong on 2018/09/11 00:03
I may not be looking at it correctly but every single stop I press on says “no upcoming departures” which essentially renders the app useless.
Horrible
by colormejason on 2018/09/01 23:40
The app does not update in real time. Buses will be up to 45 minutes behind supposed arrival time at bus stop. With no explanations as to why bus is delayed or why the bus may skip a stop as well. Correct information will help make a customer happy.

Totally Great
by Crys4u on 2018/07/02 02:52
Love the app and how I can plan a trip. I know exactly what bus or train I need to be on, and can track my location live. I cannot always hear the bus or train location. It is nice to know where to get off on my route and what transfers need to be made ahead of time. My only one complaint is that it consumes a lot of my battery while traveling, other than that I would give the app a “5”.
App is terrible
by mellowfinch on 2018/07/01 13:43
The bus times are always wrong and also have imaginary buses scheduled to stop.
No options for less walking or fewer transfers
by LEAD Sally on 2018/06/14 17:32
I’m frustrated that my two local routes (that only run once an hour) don’t show up as options for trip planning. Instead, it only offers 20 minute walk to first transit option. Where’s the ability to note requests for “Less Walking” or “Fewest Transfers”? My home shows up in a canyon, and I’ve had to reinput my home location or it will continue to put me in the canyon. (Is that the same as putting ‘Baby in the corner’??)
New to the Area? DO NOT USE THIS APP
by Haley1995Nicole on 2018/06/07 19:30
This is the worst app I have ever used. I just moved to town from out of state and I do not know much about the town or the transit system. This is the most misleading and confusing app. I got on the 280 bus hoping to get home like it told me it would. I don’t know where I’m going and I am unfamiliar with my surroundings. I couldn’t tell which stop I was supposed to get off st and before I knew it I was on the interstate! Now I am about one hour in on this bus, and it will take me another hour just to get home. DO NOT USE THIS APP IF YOU ARE NEW TO BIRMINGHAM!!! Use my stop mobile!
Network error? (No connection with the server?)

i live in pittsburgh and i know it’s not a big city like some of the other ones on this app but it sometimes won’t show me the time that the bus will be arriving in true time and then i have to download a different app so i know when i should leave to get the bus. fix this please?

Ads
by wjksea on 2018/05/24 23:13
I upgraded but still have ads displaying. Otherwise I’m liking this app enough that in the first day I deleted the app I’ve used for several years and replaced it with this app. Two days later, still have banner ads though was initially informed the ads would end. There has to be a better way to support useful apps other than to detract from their functionality with links to products etc. that have little to nothing to do with negotiating a transit network.
Incorrect information
by Blakester80222 on 2018/05/24 11:49
It’s one thing for RTD to be late or early or non-existent, this app just completely kept secret a listed stop time. The combination of misinformation and mismanagement is unforgivable.
Lacking
by Purple Haze 808 on 2018/05/23 13:10
It’s really frustrating when you want to browse a bus by number yet it will only show you routes you are near. I know how to get where I’m going. Just show me the times. It’s so simple.

by Iris Amelia on 2019/08/09 02:31
This is my go-to app for Boston transit (MBTA). The Live Tracking functionality is great; being able to save specific stops on routes in differing directions is really nice. The overall design is slicker than its predecessor, and feels faster. Interested to see how notifications will go, overall live tracking accuracy, and how route “wellness” is measured. Congrats to the team for upgrading the Boston app to Whiz!
Was perfect, updates took away good features
by AllisonSandra on 2021/08/04 19:55
I was using this app since moving to Boston and it was perfect. Now I can’t easily go back and look at the departure time the app suggests for the trip. This app is easiest to set a leave time or arrival time, preferred mode of transportation, and choose if you want less transfers or walking. This app also has the best and most updated map which makes finding exact destinations easy. But now I can’t tell when the app wants me to leave and it makes it unusable for me personally despite the other amazing functions. Stop the minimalism!!! I just wanna see times on my trips again!! I plan the night before :(
So far so awesome!
by ridingMo on 2019/09/07 20:27
User friendly, detailed sarray of nearby stops and favorites quickly available! Real-time gps update of busses and trains so you know if your are going to be able to make it to the stop on time! Very cool! I’m glad I was able to restore my purchase from the old version as well! I was kind of frustrated when I heard you guys weren’t going to be updating the old app because I hate ads!
Totally Great
by Crys4u on 2018/07/02 02:52
Love the app and how I can plan a trip. I know exactly what bus or train I need to be on, and can track my location live. I cannot always hear the bus or train location. It is nice to know where to get off on my route and what transfers need to be made ahead of time. My only one complaint is that it consumes a lot of my battery while traveling, other than that I would give the app a “5”.
A sundial works better
by Drewguy34 on 2020/09/17 15:21
This is by far the worst app I have ever used. The bus tracking and scheduling are 100% off. I have tested the times at which it says a bus would show up, and the bus does not show up for another 10 to 15 minutes. More so, the buses arrive either earlier than mentioned, Too late, or not even at all. You would have better luck determining when the buses arrive by creating your very own sundial. I would also recommend to invest in your own bus system. It would probably take less time to establish a new bus company and it would for a bus to arrive on time.
Ads
by wjksea on 2018/05/24 23:13
I upgraded but still have ads displaying. Otherwise I’m liking this app enough that in the first day I deleted the app I’ve used for several years and replaced it with this app. Two days later, still have banner ads though was initially informed the ads would end. There has to be a better way to support useful apps other than to detract from their functionality with links to products etc. that have little to nothing to do with negotiating a transit network.
Make the Bus part of your life!!!
by aquaponicsman on 2019/06/27 02:35
Been riding HRT for several years, took me 50 years to give up owning a vehicle. Guess I was addicted...? But am getting more exercise walking to &amp; from home to bus stop (One mile each way). Have much more spendable income w/o worries: gas, oil, insurance, traffic, repairs , road rage, parking fees, body scratches from disrespectful drivers. My bus pass is still $35 per year unlimited travel 24/7. Such a deal!!!
Works Great
by Qmannn on 2021/09/23 20:54
So far the tomes have been pretty accurate give or take a few minutes sometimes. I found its better to be early in case something is early like a buses. Bart is pretty on time mostly. Overall I’ve love this app. It keeps me aware of time my time. Lol... ✌️🏾
New version no longer reports any data
by poonkorama on 2019/03/26 15:33
In its previous iterations, this app was great. Reliable and convenient to use. Then it was rebranded as Whiz without any noticeable changes. More recently this app simply stopped reporting any data for any of the transit lines. Across all transit agencies, the same stock message (no departures scheduled) appeared. Checked all connections and cleared app cache. Even deleted and reinstalled the app. Still nothing. Other transit tracking apps are reporting fine, so clearly the app is to blame here. Deleted this, and have switched to a more reliable app.
No options for less walking or fewer transfers
by LEAD Sally on 2018/06/14 17:32
I’m frustrated that my two local routes (that only run once an hour) don’t show up as options for trip planning. Instead, it only offers 20 minute walk to first transit option. Where’s the ability to note requests for “Less Walking” or “Fewest Transfers”? My home shows up in a canyon, and I’ve had to reinput my home location or it will continue to put me in the canyon. (Is that the same as putting ‘Baby in the corner’??)
Not a good app
by St@r4_29/5 on 2020/08/04 03:24
I was forced to use this app because it got rid of the PDX transit app. It is terrible at telling when buses arrive and for getting routes. Also terrible for planning trips in advance because it does not provide times or information about the route. I went back to the PDX transit app because it was better but now I am forced to use whiz and it has not gotten better but worse. It is clear my company was paid to push it because why push a product that fails to at what it designed to do. I will be looking for another app.
Great but times tend to be off
by AspiredGuard20 on 2021/12/28 16:01
It’s a great app and does help, but I seem to always run in to issues in regards to the accuracy of the times for arrivals. There are instances where it may be off anywhere from a few minutes to a couple days. Not certain if that’s just a user error or not, but if that could be resolved, I think it would be as close to perfect as it could be.
Not accurate eta (las Vegas rtc)
by hskdkenskcjensn on 2021/10/20 20:00
A year ago this app was amazing! It got all the bus arrival times and routes for the most part accurate. But now when I try to plan my trip the bus arrival times and routes are never right and I end up having to change routes. And then when a bus is late, it just recalculates the route to a whole different schedule. It doesn’t even show me old trips anymore and only future ones which don’t help. I rlly miss how this app used to be.
New to the Area? DO NOT USE THIS APP
by Haley1995Nicole on 2018/06/07 19:30
This is the worst app I have ever used. I just moved to town from out of state and I do not know much about the town or the transit system. This is the most misleading and confusing app. I got on the 280 bus hoping to get home like it told me it would. I don’t know where I’m going and I am unfamiliar with my surroundings. I couldn’t tell which stop I was supposed to get off st and before I knew it I was on the interstate! Now I am about one hour in on this bus, and it will take me another hour just to get home. DO NOT USE THIS APP IF YOU ARE NEW TO BIRMINGHAM!!! Use my stop mobile!
Terrible customer service
by cmdirate on 2021/11/28 19:28
Can’t get a response from them about my account. Love the functionality but cannot recommend if they take your money and then ignore a simple question
Way off
by pentagramwookie on 2019/09/23 02:28
I just got picked up by a bus at 10:10am. The app said on bus was coming at 9:58, it didn’t show up. This app said the next bus wasn’t coming til 10:20, way off! Please fix! Update: this app only works when busses run on schedule and which is hardly ever, so if a bus isn’t coming as scheduled because a driver didn’t come in to work or the bus is running late or early the app is useless. If this app worked correctly I wouldn’t be starving right now, really annoyed at it. Hope to find another app that actually tracks the buses.
Was Great until the Update
by The Tactical Sumo on 2018/02/23 19:57
Was a great app until they updated and got rid of a couple amazing features. I thought that was the purpose of an upgrade was to move forward and make the app better not worse! If I could give it three stars I would but that’s giving it to low five stars the way used to be but it’s a good app still.
Great App! just doesn’t show the true time occasionally
by mymusicmylife(Lauren) on 2018/05/29 12:53
i live in pittsburgh and i know it’s not a big city like some of the other ones on this app but it sometimes won’t show me the time that the bus will be arriving in true time and then i have to download a different app so i know when i should leave to get the bus. fix this please?
Accuracy
by cbutle on 2020/08/22 13:50
So far since I had this app it has only been off a little bit once. Other than that it is spot on with the times of arrival almost to the minute
Total stress reliever
by Michael Larucci on 2020/08/05 06:27
This app was a life saver when I found out I couldn&#39;t rent a car. I just typed in where I wanted to go, and it told me exactly how to get there, every step of the way
“Network error”
by pickanickn4m3 on 2020/03/04 16:20
“Network errors” nonstop with the recent update, whether on WiFi or wireless, even as other more data-intensive apps and websites work just fine. To be clear, this was a problem even prior to recent updates, but has gotten much worse to the point of barely being usable. Full of bugs otherwise as well.
Reliable for the most part
by zenelxx on 2021/06/20 21:00
Works alright but sometime disconnects and has to reconnect, annoying at times
This app...
by Colsgiy2010 on 2020/02/10 23:16
This app never keeps anything close to the right GPS location. The can say the bus is in front of me and 20 mins later it shows up. As if that is not a pain the fact that the constantly freezes when try to plan a trip or look at the inaccurate gps , and this cause you to close out and star over.
Change it back
by labardoodle on 2019/11/27 13:31
Was forced to switch to this version of the app after the previous version stopped being updated. They got rid of the star/favorites that mapped out your favorite stops and now just had them on a list, making it just a little more difficult to figure out.
Annoying to look at
by anuone80001 on 2021/06/08 18:07
It tries to put too much info in 1 screen. When need a quick easy glance but in middle of busy day. It’s the last thing a need. It’s good about time keeping track of bus, but I wish I could find something with a lot less details unless I ask for it.
Transit Info Literally Anywhere!
by froggy sue on 2021/12/06 15:05
I’ve told many peeps about Whiz. That they don’t need to rely on local transit info, the Whiz knows. Thank you fir such a comprehensive data base.
Features don’t work, train times inaccurate
by ChloePaige90 on 2019/09/13 12:18
“Report an issue feature” is broken and does not allow you to report issues in train service. The app does not do the one thing you need it to: notify you of delays in service. Been sitting the platform watching a stationary train car for 30 minutes with no end in sight. Train arrival and departure times do not match real life.
Can’t search
by Rebeccalin0614 on 2018/02/07 19:20
I was using a local transit app but it started to get network error every time I try to plan a trip so I finally downloaded this one. But now it crashes EVERYTIME I want to put in my destination in plan a trip tab! Used to be so simple and convenient now it’s just a headache.
Almost makes taking the CTA enjoyable!
by Norarosel on 2020/01/13 23:54
So much information and easy to use
Less reliable than old app
by Readytogo123 on 2020/01/16 17:09
My local transit switched to Whiz. I like I can save routes but it is no longer real time even though it says it is. It is based on scheduled time which varies widely from reality. Will look for an alternative unless they get gps fixed.
Lot of functionality but some big gaps.
by 111718 on 2020/01/11 15:42
It’s hard to see whether times of buses are north, south, west or east without going to another page. Bus number is missing too. This was a great feature in the old tracker. If you need to know the time a specific bus is arriving.
Buggy Update?
by ethanr04 on 2020/03/02 17:48
All my app will show me after the last update is one train line that’s not at all the closest or fastest option. I can select the bus only filter and it still doesn’t show any bus routes.
Portland Whiz is terrible
by brb323 on 2019/11/18 00:43
The schedules are so inaccurate as to be useless. Yesterday the tracker lost track of the Orange line I was riding. It’s estimate of arrival was off by half an hour. The earlier app worked very well and seems to still be available, so I’m switching back. TriMet get your software act together. Inexcusable for an agency our taxes pay for and providing transportation for the city of Portland.
Overwhelming
by Canosita on 2021/10/08 14:35
I just want to get to the airport. I set the timer for the date in the future, and no matter which way I try it - the app gives me times for now, 30 mins, 45 mins etc. But, not for the future time I put in. So frustrating
Network error? (No connection with the server?)
by Kamiar_ on 2018/05/31 07:20
I have checked several of your apps, Transit Stockholm, Transit Berlin, All transit, but none of them work at the moment for me (after the latest update)!! Neither on mobile network or home WiFi!
Garbage
by ShayMarieK on 2019/12/15 23:51
Tons of different information shoved into one section, screen freezes and buttons don’t work half the the time. Closes directions out of nowhere. Impossible to understand anything because absolutely nothing is organized. Do yourself a favor and use literally any other app.
Best for SLC hustlers
by divers means on 2018/09/19 17:51
Look, its not NYC but the bus system has a lot of routes and this makes it easiest to weigh your options. Its better than the official UTA app and the google tool doesnt combine train with bus. I have no dl and i use this one
Updating my previous review.
by tenguix on 2020/03/15 00:23
App works just fine now; thanks, devs!
App is terrible
by mellowfinch on 2018/07/01 13:43
The bus times are always wrong and also have imaginary buses scheduled to stop.
Crashes repeatedly
by Quarkapottamus on 2020/01/22 17:16
When trying to open the app, it crashes repeatedly. Upon the third or fourth try it will finally open but then gets stuck. Was my go-to app for transit and now it’s getting deleted. What a shame.
Not efficient for tracking
by Pat Chicago on 2020/09/23 23:55
This is a “train tracker” app and it does a poor job here in chicago. I understand that the CTA in Chicago is very off and on anyway, but this app doesn’t change with train changes and is very unreliable. I would not suggest using this.
Unreliable
by Costard504 on 2021/10/01 14:26
In my area this app routinely overpredicts arrival ETAs by 20% or more. It took a half dozen missed buses in a row(!) before I realized it was the app and not bad luck. It additionally will “lose” buses but, strangely, only for particular stops on a route. Kind of useless for bus transport.
Complicated
by qwerty dave 1234567890 on 2020/06/15 00:56
Doesnt update direction once the bus has arrived or tell you direction of what bus youre looking for if youre a first time user of public transportation. Its not very accurate on times and not so easy to navigate the app
Suggestions
by Gehdhchdhejfjc on 2019/05/01 23:17
It’s the best tracking app. I want to say that can you Add playback? It would been epic! Thanks.
Good app but has room for improvement.
by Sandals75 on 2020/05/27 19:09
Accurate on the bus stops most of time, until its not.
My input
by 19Woman44 on 2020/08/10 19:36
Tuk a bit 2 gt use 2. Diffrnt directions n info need n Othrwz I like it
Not updated on bus routes
by imnotgoingtomakeanickname on 2019/04/30 16:36
The app hasn’t managed to update for a lot of buses in our area. This makes it hard to use and right now the send feedback option in the app is broken as well.
Still no watch support?
by landon john on 2019/05/08 22:44
Hard to believe you spent the time, money, and resources to rebuild this app, but still don&#39;t have some form of watch integration.
Language
by NataliaSpe on 2019/08/22 04:03
Please make it so you can change the language in the app. My phone is in Italian but the app is in german(?).
