Ads, seriously?
by adamajreynolds on 2020/02/10 15:22
No.
Leaves a lot to be desired
by FrodoGoHome on 2020/02/06 17:13
Hard to use. Lots of ads??? There are better options for free.
Google ADS?
by Richx76 on 2020/02/05 06:32
Are you kidding me? It's the official app of the Washington DOT. And it has google ads?
Good Start
by Thepunkinfart on 2020/01/29 14:37
I’m not finding the rural traffic cameras in the Duvall and Carnation area. Would like a feature where the user could select the cameras they frequently access. Also, a road closure section (specifically for flood info) is my highest priority.
Love it!!
by Tickler6666 on 2020/01/21 17:13
I’be really enjoyed using this app! Especially when catching a ferry!
Great
by kittitas on 2020/01/16 00:31
The WSDOT APP is Awesome! The features are great. And being able to turn particular counties off or on is fabulous. Keep up the good work.
Weather for pass reports is the worse !!
by Showtime1972 on 2020/01/02 20:01
I’m better off looking outside and just driving . Take Snoqualmie pass for example . The elevation is roughly 3000 ft . I’ve seen the forecast as snow level near 4500 feet with up to 2 inches of rain and 6 inches of snow !!! Whoever they use for weather you’d think they’d come with a more accurate forecast . If the snow level is 4500 there shouldn’t be any talk of snow in the forecast .
Amazing
by JustinBla1 on 2019/12/26 15:18
Love this so much helps out so so so much!! Been using it a lot lately and it’s magnificent! The bottom reader where you swipe to see updates on collisions and stuff is by far my favorite part! Also, the ferry’s thank you guys!

Keeps crashing
by Kimjean13 on 2019/10/22 13:57
Have used this app for years now to estimate my time to the office. For the last week anytime I try to click on Traffic Times, it crashes.
Great App
by JetMech on 2019/10/18 08:39
I have been using this app for a while and it keeps getting better. This app saves me commuting time. Keep up the great work!
Thoughtful, fast, elegant, useful, impressive
by Yowzoe on 2019/10/18 00:32
This app is really superior in every way.
Don’t leave me app
by Lily. Dog 627 on 2019/08/24 03:54
Gave 1 star because it doesn’t tell me my upcoming route or the route of family members ,in route to me. It just uses my location and would only go to route near me. Frustrated!!
Garbage
by Pandora15 on 2019/08/17 21:31
Completely useless app. I just got stuck in a major traffic jam. Literally 30 minutes of getting no where before I was able to turn around and get out. Hours later the issue still exists. But is it on the app???? No, nada, zilch. As I said, completely useless.

iPhone app quit working
by SequimWA on 2019/07/01 15:27
Used this app all the time until a few days ago, but now every time I try to use it, the app puts up an error message saying it can’t connect. Everything else on my phone works. Disappointing that WSDOT hasn’t fixed this issue yet.
Great app but please fix!
by Caroletgen on 2019/07/01 15:12
Love this app and depend on it regularly. Lately it’s not working - telling me there’s no network connection for ferries but everything else works - please fix, developers!!!!
Port Angeles area

How do we request road maintenance clean up sand after the snow event. Morse creek area turn lanes are full of debris
No Cams, no Road Sensors, no Weather, just Google Traffic !
by CapitolPeak76 on 2019/02/22 22:11
Wow, Washington State has a vast infrastructure of road sensors, traffic cams, and road weather stations, but all we seem to get on this app for roads is traffic from Google. Very lame considering state gasoline taxes of over a dollar a gallon, one of the highest in the nation!
Good app but ads
by SPIN360253 on 2019/02/20 19:14
Why are there ads in a government app? Why?
Navigating my mountain passes

Very useful but not perfect
by Cairo67 on 2019/01/29 16:46
I live in the islands, commute to work on another island and use this app several times a week. When ferries are running on time, it’s very useful. When service is disrupted, the app becomes less useful. I agree with other reviewers that real time updates are needed. Also, the booth workers in Anacortes claim that the app is not reliable as far as quotas, which also seems like a gap that needs to be mended. The app still is very useful for making or altering reservations on the go, or checking to see how much space is left on the ferry you’re gunning for. Having the local numbers for ferry landings is a good back up as is knowing how to interpret Vessel Watch. The more fluent you become in “ferry”, the more useful the app becomes.
Why does an official state agency app have ads?
by Reads-a-lot on 2018/12/28 23:01
Why does the official Washington State DOT application have banner ads? Seriously?
Simple idea
by Lori-Loud on 2018/11/27 03:39
How about an in app purchase to remove the ads. Though there not big ads, but as someone who's heavily anti-ad, I dont mind paying .99 to remove them. Plus extra revenue for the DoT. Thanks! c:
The camera photos got smaller
by 31rpilot on 2018/11/15 18:36
Excellent app but something changed and the camera photos are now little postage stamps, hard to see details. Why did this happen?
No way vessels near to terminal!
by 272boostcreep on 2018/11/05 16:14
Why did you remove vessel watch?
Quality Dev Support
by Redflippa on 2018/10/26 22:49
Been using this app for a while to look into schedules and the dev has actively been developing data that the app offers. Nice to see continued development of the platform and helps for the average commuter by having info all in one place.
Needs late ferry info
by gin n' tronix on 2018/09/27 01:06
It shouldn't be hard to see when the boat arrived on vessel watch. Knowing the boat is at the dock doesn't tell you if you have a chance to make it before it departs and whether to hurry or take your time. Please add this feature! The boat is rarely on time and this would be invaluable information for us bike and walk on passengers who have to look at the cameras, check email inbox, etc.
Do not trust this app
by hanjarr5 on 2018/08/07 21:31
Do not trust the car counter on the ferry times, it is completely inaccurate. I have had it say 40 spots and miss the ferry, I have also had it say no spots and make the ferry. Also it makes no adjustment if the ferries run behind (which is frequent). The vessel watch function is also different than the website.
Update this so users can report potholes.
by Legend45 on 2018/07/11 16:54
This app would really be helpful if we could drop a pin to report potholes. Also if it would state if you were the first or the hundredth person to report it at that location.
Ads are uncool
by KFREE UNVAiN.COM on 2018/06/10 22:49
Apps provided by tax-funded government agencies should not be showing ads!
Useful app
by We111222 on 2018/06/10 05:13
This app is especially useful if you’re on a road trip because there’s traffic info, border wait times and more
Best App Ever!
by WVBirdieGirl on 2018/05/07 15:49
This app is awesome! I only wish I'd have known about it sooner so I could've had it for longer. Used it on a friend's phone while on a trip and was excited to get back and put it on my phone. Really easy to use. I love the favorites feature. Five stars!
Awesome App
by tank8188 on 2018/05/06 15:51
I cannot speak on half of this app’s intended use. I use it primarily for ferry information (which has always been accurate and up-to-date for me). It gives schedules and availability, as well as a link to their site to reserve a ferry (if that terminal supports reservations). For me, this is an excellent app and I encourage others to try it as well!
Often not current ferry info
by Catboatguy on 2018/04/24 16:27
When the ferries are running temporary schedules, the departure times should be accurate on the app. They are not. True, the bulletins are there, but it would be best to have current, accurate info displayed everywhere in the app, particularly on the main schedule display page.
Need better updates
by G-Blues on 2018/02/17 01:17
If you assume they update their reports every 10-15 minutes you’d be wrong. For instance I looked at the pass report this morning and it said it was closed. The report was posted at 6:28am. At 4:00pm it still showed it closed (same 6:28am time), although the pass had been open for hours. How hard can it be to have real-time updates?
Question
by DrivingAboveTheInfluence on 2018/01/24 19:31
Why are there loot boxes on this app? I don’t have access to half of Washington until I spend $4.99 on loot boxes to unlock interstates and more?? Where is the pride an accomplishment in this.
Why ads?

Add CarPlay support & Remove Ads!
by Dookie 2x on 2017/12/10 05:10
This App would be more helpful if it supported use in CarPlay. Considering it’s illegal to use a mobile device/phone while driving in WA it’s entrapment that this app doesn’t support use through a car’s onboard systems. Most cars from Hondas to Fords to Toyotas and Audi and Volvo are just a few major brands that support CarPlay now. CarPlay support would make using this type of app safer AND legal while driving!
Ads wasting data
by Arthurvmk on 2017/11/07 08:09
It’s bad enough getting stuck in traffic. This app used to help users anticipate congestion in time to avoid adding to th3 problem. NOW IT USES YOUR DATA TO DISPLAY ADS THAT DISTRACT YOU FROM YOUR DRIVING. Just wrong on so many levels. What were they thinking?
Doesn’t show complete ferry schedule
by Anne in DC on 2017/10/04 18:42
Only the future ferry trips are shown — not the complete schedule- so if you want to see the schedule for, let’s say, the full day, you have to go to the dot site online or look at the next day’s schedule. It’s really frustrating.
Keeping Vashon in the dark?
by 'Mander-man on 2017/09/23 04:25
Why has the "Drive-up spaces" count for Vashon-Pt. Defiance AND the Vashon-Fauntleroy-Southworth triangle route gone away? That used to be so helpful, and it still exists for other runs...?!?
Border Wait
by JMF91 on 2017/08/16 13:46
Normally good, but this is unacceptable. It says the southbound border wait is less than 5 minutes both at the truck crossing and the often slightly busier Peace Arch. Being that it's early in the morning, I believe it. I've now been sitting at the border for 30 minutes with another 15 or so to go. Update the border times coming back into the country! Seems crazy that the wait times going into another country (Canada) are more accurate than the one coordinated with our own government coming back into the United States. I don't expect it to change the wait, just accurately report what it is!
Confused
by MaybeAfterLunch on 2017/08/13 04:32
I can't save traffic camera images to my phone why…? I tried tapping, tapping and swiping up, force press, force press and swipe up, double tap, triple tap, swipe left, swipe right, tapping the star, tapping the camera title… How? I can't believe this isn't an option… (On the website I can save the image without taking a screenshot of the whole screen…)
Ads crowd out maps
by Colb20130210 on 2017/07/01 18:15
The ads are frustrating, especially on the traffic map page. The maps size is significantly reduced by the ads and two rows of buttons. Landscape view of map on the phone is useless. Buttons should have need put on the sides. Traffic map refresh seems improved with recent updates. But it is still hard to know if refresh is needed or working when pressed. There is no visual indication of the age of the map data. Pressing refresh gives no indication that it started, is updating, or finished refreshing.
Doesn't show current traffic alerts
by tinac1 on 2017/06/03 21:52
This app does not show current traffic or construction alerts so it's a complete waste of time. Why it doesn't integrate with the alerts that are already on the WSDOT website is puzzling. Font trust this app- check the website instead
Worst app ever
by Amir1581 on 2017/04/13 00:34
You guys couldn't make an app work if your life depended on it. Your app shows I5 SB shows all green. That's load of crap! It's gridlock from all the way north in Everett. We need real-time updates. This app doesn't help when i jump on the freeway only to get stuck for hours cuz you guys can't keep up with traffic condition.
Terrific
by Ruby2zd@ on 2017/01/09 00:56
Very functional dependable (most of the time) app.
Excellent
by Terry the violinist on 2017/01/03 17:34
More convenient than the Google Maps app, especially the favorites feature
Not reliable
by dogstar88 on 2016/12/09 18:57
Their tweets are far more up to date. If you can't keep the info current then discontinue this app and just point to twitter. Thought the pass was closed but reopened two hours ago. Since it is a dedicated app then why wouldn't I believe it? Frustrating.
Pass restrictions get cut off
by Tasherz21 on 2016/11/29 14:39
I love the app. I use it daily to determine which route I take to work. I travelled over Snoqualmie Pass for the holiday though and the pass restrictions are too long for you to see the full restriction, even if you turn your phone to landscape mode. There are a few things that don't get updated as quickly as the road signs, so I would like to see that improve which is why I gave three stars.
Great app!
by dani5748 on 2016/11/20 15:17
Thank you Washington DOT for making a simple app that has great features! It's now my go to app when I'm traveling over the pass or looking for traffic issues 👍🏻
Great time Saver!!!
by Balzout76 on 2016/11/09 06:45
I use this app multiple times a day to determine drive times and choose alternate routes given the current traffic volumes. Great time saver!!!

Index.html error on traffic map
by BennSKirk on 2016/06/24 02:53

Ads block a significant part of the screen
by Ranch Roper on 2016/06/22 13:20
With one of the latest "bug fixes" to the app now a significant part of the screen is blocked. Very frustrating.
Contains info, no auto login
by ChrisThomerson on 2016/06/14 21:06
Has the necessary info in a somewhat hard to find un-user friendly retro format. Big problem: it doesn't remember user login and has never heard of Touch ID. At this point a home screen bookmark to the ferry web login page is a better bet. Really a two star, I made it three star to encourage their teetering steps in the right direction.
Banner ads???
by Sillysteveo on 2016/06/14 15:50
I love this app and use it daily to best navigate to work, but the addition of the banner ads just whacked two stars right off the top. Thanks for hogging my limited screen space with uselessness. I would purchase a version with no ads. Please get rid of them. Isn't this app taxpayer supported anyway, WSDOT?
Freezes on logo screen, won't open
by E.Scribo on 2016/05/27 06:19
Apparently the update is intended to stop users from using the app. Well done, WSDOT. (And lose the ads. This is a government agency and the information is public.)
Poor app navigation
by kalyok on 2016/05/04 17:04
Please fix app navigation. Once I configured favorites and go to check one of them I can't go back to favorites (to check another one, duh) without first hitting home. I'd expect from any favorite screen to be able to go back to the list of favorites, but the "Back" button takes me home... Two possible solutions: 1) on all favorite screens change "Back" button to "Home" button (reset user expectations), or 2) make the "Back" button to truly go back ONE step, not all the way to the home of the app. App is useful, but navigation frustrates me to the point that I'm angry before opening the app... Fire your tester!
Those banner ads makes it less appealing
by MagicSwan on 2016/04/28 15:35
Some useful info. They should get rid of those banner ads.
No longer [The most annoying app in the world]
by markmark206 on 2016/04/22 04:25
Edit: today's update fixed this! Yay!! --------- This app is super useful. I use it to check ferry schedule a few times a week. However, as I navigate to ferry schedule, the app starts showing ADS in the top section, over the "back" arrow. This means there is no way to go back, to the previous page. Super-annoying.
Accurate
by Maddogvin on 2016/04/16 22:27

Good for knowing what the roads/etc. are actually like
by JTreece13 on 2016/03/20 18:21
App keeps road conditions updated MUCH more frequently than other states since driven through/lived in.
Ditch the ads
by Sleeplessbooks on 2016/03/17 02:54
The ads make the app extremely difficult to use. And there is no way, even for pay, to disable them. But let's be honest. WSDOT shouldn't be monetizing this app since it's already paid for through regular tax revenue.
Not working
by c(O_o)3 on 2016/02/16 13:37
Pass reports aren't loading, including pass report in my favorites bar. Please fix ASAP, I depend on these for weekly trips!
Reality Check
by DefensiveDriver on 2016/01/24 22:33
The addition of banner adds especially near the refresh button is a safety hazard and completely irresponsible of wsdot.
Pass reports not up to date
by Ldseattle on 2016/01/20 16:06

App data connection problem
by truckin4jc on 2015/12/22 13:30
After the app working great for several months, now it's started to crash. The app now repeatedly says, "can't load data. Check your connection". I've closed and reopened the app, rebooted my phone a few times, and reinstalled the app to possibly make it work. Looks like there's at least one other review saying they have the same issue, starting at the same time. Please fix this soon. I cross multiple passes each week, and need the info. Thank you. Merry Christmas!
It doesn't work.

Please use your own maps, not Google's
by Tim Galsea on 2015/10/27 01:16
The reason I always go to your website when I'm on my computer is that your maps are much easier to read than Google's. For example i5 Express Ln. is completely unreadable on Google maps. It's just a blur of colors.

Thanks for updating!
Almost not terrible
by Sadgwebb on 2015/10/16 01:43
This is the kind of app that makes one ask 'do they ever use their own app,' because if they did, they would be embarrassed and try to fix it. If the WSDOT actually reads this review- you could do a lot to improve the app by simply adding a button on the traffic map that centers you on your geographic location instead of having to scroll around to find yourself.

by gin n' tronix on 2018/09/27 01:06
It shouldn't be hard to see when the boat arrived on vessel watch. Knowing the boat is at the dock doesn't tell you if you have a chance to make it before it departs and whether to hurry or take your time. Please add this feature! The boat is rarely on time and this would be invaluable information for us bike and walk on passengers who have to look at the cameras, check email inbox, etc.

Love this so much helps out so so so much!! Been using it a lot lately and it’s magnificent! The bottom reader where you swipe to see updates on collisions and stuff is by far my favorite part! Also, the ferry’s thank you guys!
Need better updates
by G-Blues on 2018/02/17 01:17
If you assume they update their reports every 10-15 minutes you’d be wrong. For instance I looked at the pass report this morning and it said it was closed. The report was posted at 6:28am. At 4:00pm it still showed it closed (same 6:28am time), although the pass had been open for hours. How hard can it be to have real-time updates?
Simple idea

Weather for pass reports is the worse !!
by Showtime1972 on 2020/01/02 20:01
I’m better off looking outside and just driving . Take Snoqualmie pass for example . The elevation is roughly 3000 ft . I’ve seen the forecast as snow level near 4500 feet with up to 2 inches of rain and 6 inches of snow !!! Whoever they use for weather you’d think they’d come with a more accurate forecast . If the snow level is 4500 there shouldn’t be any talk of snow in the forecast .
Great app but please fix!

Often not current ferry info
by Catboatguy on 2018/04/24 16:27
When the ferries are running temporary schedules, the departure times should be accurate on the app. They are not. True, the bulletins are there, but it would be best to have current, accurate info displayed everywhere in the app, particularly on the main schedule display page.

Doesn’t show complete ferry schedule
by Anne in DC on 2017/10/04 18:42
Only the future ferry trips are shown — not the complete schedule- so if you want to see the schedule for, let’s say, the full day, you have to go to the dot site online or look at the next day’s schedule. It’s really frustrating.
Do not trust this app
by hanjarr5 on 2018/08/07 21:31
Do not trust the car counter on the ferry times, it is completely inaccurate. I have had it say 40 spots and miss the ferry, I have also had it say no spots and make the ferry. Also it makes no adjustment if the ferries run behind (which is frequent). The vessel watch function is also different than the website.

It’s bad enough getting stuck in traffic. This app used to help users anticipate congestion in time to avoid adding to th3 problem. NOW IT USES YOUR DATA TO DISPLAY ADS THAT DISTRACT YOU FROM YOUR DRIVING. Just wrong on so many levels. What were they thinking?
Don’t leave me app
by Lily. Dog 627 on 2019/08/24 03:54

Needs some changes
by CougRon on 2011/06/14 02:01
Seattle area driver. Discovered this while looking for apps for my new iPad. Even though it supports iPad you can tell the app is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch version. Not a bad thing but there lots of wasted space that could be used to combine features or provide extra info. It would be nice if there were arrows or places you can click on the Seattle traffic map to switch between the different sections. It's nice that all sorts of traffic time estimations are provided, but it's too much and unusable-- trying to find the points you're interested in is a guaranteed hair pulled. It would be nice if you could search the 'favorites' (maybe click on them on a map!) and 'favorite' some of them. Then if the favorites could be quickly gotten too from the root of the app, it would be tremendously more useful. Also, on the iPad the app seems to be locked into the vertical orientation. It would be nice if you could rotate it horizontally too.

Ads crowd out maps
by Colb20130210 on 2017/07/01 18:15
The ads are frustrating, especially on the traffic map page. The maps size is significantly reduced by the ads and two rows of buttons. Landscape view of map on the phone is useless. Buttons should have need put on the sides. Traffic map refresh seems improved with recent updates. But it is still hard to know if refresh is needed or working when pressed. There is no visual indication of the age of the map data. Pressing refresh gives no indication that it started, is updating, or finished refreshing.
Good App, Needs Improvement
by alienbogey on 2010/09/05 18:33
This is a good first effort by WSDOT, the app runs fine on my 3Gs with no crashes. It provides excellent traffic info for the Seattle area, and the ferry and mountain pass info is very welcome, nice to have an app with so much Western Washington travel info in one place. Areas to improve: The Seattle area 'Flowmap' of current conditions is great and very useful. Now, where is it for Tacoma and Olympia? Only a traffic cam map is provided for those (and other) areas - it is just not practical to, say, call up 15 successive traffic cams for a drive from Olympia through Tacoma in order to see the traffic situation before you drive yourself onto the Seattle Flowmap. Another upgrade would be to provide ferry wait times for at least the high traffic commuter and summer tourist runs. Showing the position of the boats is kind of fun, but does you no good if there is a 3 hour wait at the terminal. A good app, 4 stars for first effort, needs to improve to get more. WSDOT - are you listening?
Great app!
by Skiguy68567457843 on 2015/07/03 18:33
Not sure what all the poor reviews are about, maybe it just got updated. I just downloaded this and it's awesome! Accurate traffic reports and access to live traffic cameras, plus info on all the ferries, passes, construction and even wait times for border crossing to Canada. A must have if you live in Washington. The only thing it needs is a little dot or something in your current location on the map as it can be hard to find where you are if you don't know already
Ok. The actual website shortcut on my iPhone is better for me.
by RosakaM on 2012/01/19 12:02
I was excited at first to see they got an app. I've been using the actual website with the Tacoma map as a bookmark to check traffic before my commute. I really care more about seeing the traffic flow maps. When I select the Tacoma area, it goes to Google maps, but I see no traffic flow indication whatsoever. If I select the Seattle Area it shows the traffic flow. Why do they do that? I'll stick to my old methods and just have the bookmark saved on my home screen whenever I need to check for traffic for now.
Border Wait
by JMF91 on 2017/08/16 13:46
Normally good, but this is unacceptable. It says the southbound border wait is less than 5 minutes both at the truck crossing and the often slightly busier Peace Arch. Being that it's early in the morning, I believe it. I've now been sitting at the border for 30 minutes with another 15 or so to go. Update the border times coming back into the country! Seems crazy that the wait times going into another country (Canada) are more accurate than the one coordinated with our own government coming back into the United States. I don't expect it to change the wait, just accurately report what it is!
Poor app navigation
by kalyok on 2016/05/04 17:04
Please fix app navigation. Once I configured favorites and go to check one of them I can't go back to favorites (to check another one, duh) without first hitting home. I'd expect from any favorite screen to be able to go back to the list of favorites, but the "Back" button takes me home... Two possible solutions: 1) on all favorite screens change "Back" button to "Home" button (reset user expectations), or 2) make the "Back" button to truly go back ONE step, not all the way to the home of the app. App is useful, but navigation frustrates me to the point that I'm angry before opening the app... Fire your tester!

Very useful but not perfect
by Cairo67 on 2019/01/29 16:46
I live in the islands, commute to work on another island and use this app several times a week. When ferries are running on time, it’s very useful. When service is disrupted, the app becomes less useful. I agree with other reviewers that real time updates are needed. Also, the booth workers in Anacortes claim that the app is not reliable as far as quotas, which also seems like a gap that needs to be mended. The app still is very useful for making or altering reservations on the go, or checking to see how much space is left on the ferry you’re gunning for. Having the local numbers for ferry landings is a good back up as is knowing how to interpret Vessel Watch. The more fluent you become in “ferry”, the more useful the app becomes.

by tank8188 on 2018/05/06 15:51
I cannot speak on half of this app’s intended use. I use it primarily for ferry information (which has always been accurate and up-to-date for me). It gives schedules and availability, as well as a link to their site to reserve a ferry (if that terminal supports reservations). For me, this is an excellent app and I encourage others to try it as well!

by G-Blues on 2018/02/17 01:17
If you assume they update their reports every 10-15 minutes you’d be wrong. For instance I looked at the pass report this morning and it said it was closed. The report was posted at 6:28am. At 4:00pm it still showed it closed (same 6:28am time), although the pass had been open for hours. How hard can it be to have real-time updates?

Add CarPlay support & Remove Ads!
by Dookie 2x on 2017/12/10 05:10
This App would be more helpful if it supported use in CarPlay. Considering it’s illegal to use a mobile device/phone while driving in WA it’s entrapment that this app doesn’t support use through a car’s onboard systems. Most cars from Hondas to Fords to Toyotas and Audi and Volvo are just a few major brands that support CarPlay now. CarPlay support would make using this type of app safer AND legal while driving!

I tried tapping, tapping and swiping up, force press, force press and swipe up, double tap, triple tap, swipe left, swipe right, tapping the star, tapping the camera title… How? I can't believe this isn't an option… (On the website I can save the image without taking a screenshot of the whole screen…)
Ads crowd out maps
by Colb20130210 on 2017/07/01 18:15
The ads are frustrating, especially on the traffic map page. The maps size is significantly reduced by the ads and two rows of buttons. Landscape view of map on the phone is useless. Buttons should have need put on the sides. Traffic map refresh seems improved with recent updates. But it is still hard to know if refresh is needed or working when pressed. There is no visual indication of the age of the map data. Pressing refresh gives no indication that it started, is updating, or finished refreshing.
Doesn't show current traffic alerts
by tinac1 on 2017/06/03 21:52
This app does not show current traffic or construction alerts so it's a complete waste of time. Why it doesn't integrate with the alerts that are already on the WSDOT website is puzzling. Font trust this app- check the website instead
Worst app ever
by Amir1581 on 2017/04/13 00:34
You guys couldn't make an app work if your life depended on it. Your app shows I5 SB shows all green. That's load of crap! It's gridlock from all the way north in Everett. We need real-time updates. This app doesn't help when i jump on the freeway only to get stuck for hours cuz you guys can't keep up with traffic condition.
Terrific
by Ruby2zd@ on 2017/01/09 00:56
Very functional dependable (most of the time) app.
Excellent
by Terry the violinist on 2017/01/03 17:34
More convenient than the Google Maps app, especially the favorites feature
Not reliable
by dogstar88 on 2016/12/09 18:57
Their tweets are far more up to date. If you can't keep the info current then discontinue this app and just point to twitter. Thought the pass was closed but reopened two hours ago. Since it is a dedicated app then why wouldn't I believe it? Frustrating.
Pass restrictions get cut off
by Tasherz21 on 2016/11/29 14:39
I love the app. I use it daily to determine which route I take to work. I travelled over Snoqualmie Pass for the holiday though and the pass restrictions are too long for you to see the full restriction, even if you turn your phone to landscape mode. There are a few things that don't get updated as quickly as the road signs, so I would like to see that improve which is why I gave three stars.
Great app!
by dani5748 on 2016/11/20 15:17
Thank you Washington DOT for making a simple app that has great features! It's now my go to app when I'm traveling over the pass or looking for traffic issues 👍🏻
Great time Saver!!!
by Balzout76 on 2016/11/09 06:45
I use this app multiple times a day to determine drive times and choose alternate routes given the current traffic volumes. Great time saver!!!

Index.html error on traffic map
by BennSKirk on 2016/06/24 02:53

Ads block a significant part of the screen
by Ranch Roper on 2016/06/22 13:20
With one of the latest "bug fixes" to the app now a significant part of the screen is blocked. Very frustrating.
Contains info, no auto login
by ChrisThomerson on 2016/06/14 21:06
Has the necessary info in a somewhat hard to find un-user friendly retro format. Big problem: it doesn't remember user login and has never heard of Touch ID. At this point a home screen bookmark to the ferry web login page is a better bet. Really a two star, I made it three star to encourage their teetering steps in the right direction.
Banner ads???
by Sillysteveo on 2016/06/14 15:50
I love this app and use it daily to best navigate to work, but the addition of the banner ads just whacked two stars right off the top. Thanks for hogging my limited screen space with uselessness. I would purchase a version with no ads. Please get rid of them. Isn't this app taxpayer supported anyway, WSDOT?
Freezes on logo screen, won't open
by E.Scribo on 2016/05/27 06:19
Apparently the update is intended to stop users from using the app. Well done, WSDOT. (And lose the ads. This is a government agency and the information is public.)
Poor app navigation
by kalyok on 2016/05/04 17:04
Please fix app navigation. Once I configured favorites and go to check one of them I can't go back to favorites (to check another one, duh) without first hitting home. I'd expect from any favorite screen to be able to go back to the list of favorites, but the "Back" button takes me home... Two possible solutions: 1) on all favorite screens change "Back" button to "Home" button (reset user expectations), or 2) make the "Back" button to truly go back ONE step, not all the way to the home of the app. App is useful, but navigation frustrates me to the point that I'm angry before opening the app... Fire your tester!
Those banner ads makes it less appealing
by MagicSwan on 2016/04/28 15:35
Some useful info. They should get rid of those banner ads.
No longer [The most annoying app in the world]
by markmark206 on 2016/04/22 04:25
Edit: today's update fixed this! Yay!! --------- This app is super useful. I use it to check ferry schedule a few times a week. However, as I navigate to ferry schedule, the app starts showing ADS in the top section, over the "back" arrow. This means there is no way to go back, to the previous page. Super-annoying.
Accurate
by Maddogvin on 2016/04/16 22:27

Good for knowing what the roads/etc. are actually like
by JTreece13 on 2016/03/20 18:21
App keeps road conditions updated MUCH more frequently than other states since driven through/lived in.
Ditch the ads
by Sleeplessbooks on 2016/03/17 02:54
The ads make the app extremely difficult to use. And there is no way, even for pay, to disable them. But let's be honest. WSDOT shouldn't be monetizing this app since it's already paid for through regular tax revenue.
Not working

Reality Check
by DefensiveDriver on 2016/01/24 22:33
The addition of banner adds especially near the refresh button is a safety hazard and completely irresponsible of wsdot.
Pass reports not up to date

I just downloaded this app and so far it works very well on my IPhone 6. I checked all the features and had no issues. I frequently drive the mountain passes and this app makes pass reports easier to access. Easy to use and informative.

App data connection problem
by truckin4jc on 2015/12/22 13:30
After the app working great for several months, now it's started to crash. The app now repeatedly says, "can't load data. Check your connection". I've closed and reopened the app, rebooted my phone a few times, and reinstalled the app to possibly make it work. Looks like there's at least one other review saying they have the same issue, starting at the same time. Please fix this soon. I cross multiple passes each week, and need the info. Thank you. Merry Christmas!
It doesn't work.

Please use your own maps, not Google's
by Tim Galsea on 2015/10/27 01:16
The reason I always go to your website when I'm on my computer is that your maps are much easier to read than Google's. For example i5 Express Ln. is completely unreadable on Google maps. It's just a blur of colors.

Almost not terrible
by Sadgwebb on 2015/10/16 01:43
This is the kind of app that makes one ask 'do they ever use their own app,' because if they did, they would be embarrassed and try to fix it. If the WSDOT actually reads this review- you could do a lot to improve the app by simply adding a button on the traffic map that centers you on your geographic location instead of having to scroll around to find yourself.

Add CarPlay support & Remove Ads!
by Dookie 2x on 2017/12/10 05:10
This App would be more helpful if it supported use in CarPlay. Considering it’s illegal to use a mobile device/phone while driving in WA it’s entrapment that this app doesn’t support use through a car’s onboard systems. Most cars from Hondas to Fords to Toyotas and Audi and Volvo are just a few major brands that support CarPlay now. CarPlay support would make using this type of app safer AND legal while driving!
Very useful but not perfect
by Cairo67 on 2019/01/29 16:46
I live in the islands, commute to work on another island and use this app several times a week. When ferries are running on time, it’s very useful. When service is disrupted, the app becomes less useful. I agree with other reviewers that real time updates are needed. Also, the booth workers in Anacortes claim that the app is not reliable as far as quotas, which also seems like a gap that needs to be mended. The app still is very useful for making or altering reservations on the go, or checking to see how much space is left on the ferry you’re gunning for. Having the local numbers for ferry landings is a good back up as is knowing how to interpret Vessel Watch. The more fluent you become in “ferry”, the more useful the app becomes.
Awesome App
by tank8188 on 2018/05/06 15:51
I cannot speak on half of this app’s intended use. I use it primarily for ferry information (which has always been accurate and up-to-date for me). It gives schedules and availability, as well as a link to their site to reserve a ferry (if that terminal supports reservations). For me, this is an excellent app and I encourage others to try it as well!
Update this so users can report potholes.
by Legend45 on 2018/07/11 16:54
This app would really be helpful if we could drop a pin to report potholes. Also if it would state if you were the first or the hundredth person to report it at that location.
Best App Ever!
by WVBirdieGirl on 2018/05/07 15:49
This app is awesome! I only wish I'd have known about it sooner so I could've had it for longer. Used it on a friend's phone while on a trip and was excited to get back and put it on my phone. Really easy to use. I love the favorites feature. Five stars!
Needs late ferry info
by gin n' tronix on 2018/09/27 01:06
It shouldn't be hard to see when the boat arrived on vessel watch. Knowing the boat is at the dock doesn't tell you if you have a chance to make it before it departs and whether to hurry or take your time. Please add this feature! The boat is rarely on time and this would be invaluable information for us bike and walk on passengers who have to look at the cameras, check email inbox, etc.
Quality Dev Support
by Redflippa on 2018/10/26 22:49
Been using this app for a while to look into schedules and the dev has actively been developing data that the app offers. Nice to see continued development of the platform and helps for the average commuter by having info all in one place.
Amazing
by JustinBla1 on 2019/12/26 15:18
Love this so much helps out so so so much!! Been using it a lot lately and it’s magnificent! The bottom reader where you swipe to see updates on collisions and stuff is by far my favorite part! Also, the ferry’s thank you guys!
Need better updates
by G-Blues on 2018/02/17 01:17
If you assume they update their reports every 10-15 minutes you’d be wrong. For instance I looked at the pass report this morning and it said it was closed. The report was posted at 6:28am. At 4:00pm it still showed it closed (same 6:28am time), although the pass had been open for hours. How hard can it be to have real-time updates?
Simple idea
by Lori-Loud on 2018/11/27 03:39
How about an in app purchase to remove the ads. Though there not big ads, but as someone who's heavily anti-ad, I dont mind paying .99 to remove them. Plus extra revenue for the DoT. Thanks! c:
Weather for pass reports is the worse !!
by Showtime1972 on 2020/01/02 20:01
I’m better off looking outside and just driving . Take Snoqualmie pass for example . The elevation is roughly 3000 ft . I’ve seen the forecast as snow level near 4500 feet with up to 2 inches of rain and 6 inches of snow !!! Whoever they use for weather you’d think they’d come with a more accurate forecast . If the snow level is 4500 there shouldn’t be any talk of snow in the forecast .
Great app but please fix!
by Caroletgen on 2019/07/01 15:12

Question
by DrivingAboveTheInfluence on 2018/01/24 19:31
Why are there loot boxes on this app? I don’t have access to half of Washington until I spend $4.99 on loot boxes to unlock interstates and more?? Where is the pride an accomplishment in this.
Often not current ferry info
by Catboatguy on 2018/04/24 16:27
When the ferries are running temporary schedules, the departure times should be accurate on the app. They are not. True, the bulletins are there, but it would be best to have current, accurate info displayed everywhere in the app, particularly on the main schedule display page.
Very helpful
by Mattemaker on 2017/12/14 20:18

Doesn’t show complete ferry schedule
by Anne in DC on 2017/10/04 18:42
Only the future ferry trips are shown — not the complete schedule- so if you want to see the schedule for, let’s say, the full day, you have to go to the dot site online or look at the next day’s schedule. It’s really frustrating.
Do not trust this app
by hanjarr5 on 2018/08/07 21:31
Do not trust the car counter on the ferry times, it is completely inaccurate. I have had it say 40 spots and miss the ferry, I have also had it say no spots and make the ferry. Also it makes no adjustment if the ferries run behind (which is frequent). The vessel watch function is also different than the website.
Great App

No Cams, no Road Sensors, no Weather, just Google Traffic !
by CapitolPeak76 on 2019/02/22 22:11
Wow, Washington State has a vast infrastructure of road sensors, traffic cams, and road weather stations, but all we seem to get on this app for roads is traffic from Google. Very lame considering state gasoline taxes of over a dollar a gallon, one of the highest in the nation!

Ads wasting data
by Arthurvmk on 2017/11/07 08:09
It’s bad enough getting stuck in traffic. This app used to help users anticipate congestion in time to avoid adding to th3 problem. NOW IT USES YOUR DATA TO DISPLAY ADS THAT DISTRACT YOU FROM YOUR DRIVING. Just wrong on so many levels. What were they thinking?
Don’t leave me app

Needs some changes
by CougRon on 2011/06/14 02:01
Seattle area driver. Discovered this while looking for apps for my new iPad. Even though it supports iPad you can tell the app is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch version. Not a bad thing but there lots of wasted space that could be used to combine features or provide extra info. It would be nice if there were arrows or places you can click on the Seattle traffic map to switch between the different sections. It's nice that all sorts of traffic time estimations are provided, but it's too much and unusable-- trying to find the points you're interested in is a guaranteed hair pulled. It would be nice if you could search the 'favorites' (maybe click on them on a map!) and 'favorite' some of them. Then if the favorites could be quickly gotten too from the root of the app, it would be tremendously more useful. Also, on the iPad the app seems to be locked into the vertical orientation. It would be nice if you could rotate it horizontally too.

Ads are uncool
by KFREE UNVAiN.COM on 2018/06/10 22:49

Ads crowd out maps
by Colb20130210 on 2017/07/01 18:15
The ads are frustrating, especially on the traffic map page. The maps size is significantly reduced by the ads and two rows of buttons. Landscape view of map on the phone is useless. Buttons should have need put on the sides. Traffic map refresh seems improved with recent updates. But it is still hard to know if refresh is needed or working when pressed. There is no visual indication of the age of the map data. Pressing refresh gives no indication that it started, is updating, or finished refreshing.
Good App, Needs Improvement
by alienbogey on 2010/09/05 18:33
This is a good first effort by WSDOT, the app runs fine on my 3Gs with no crashes. It provides excellent traffic info for the Seattle area, and the ferry and mountain pass info is very welcome, nice to have an app with so much Western Washington travel info in one place. Areas to improve: The Seattle area 'Flowmap' of current conditions is great and very useful. Now, where is it for Tacoma and Olympia? Only a traffic cam map is provided for those (and other) areas - it is just not practical to, say, call up 15 successive traffic cams for a drive from Olympia through Tacoma in order to see the traffic situation before you drive yourself onto the Seattle Flowmap. Another upgrade would be to provide ferry wait times for at least the high traffic commuter and summer tourist runs. Showing the position of the boats is kind of fun, but does you no good if there is a 3 hour wait at the terminal. A good app, 4 stars for first effort, needs to improve to get more. WSDOT - are you listening?
Great app!
by Skiguy68567457843 on 2015/07/03 18:33
Not sure what all the poor reviews are about, maybe it just got updated. I just downloaded this and it's awesome! Accurate traffic reports and access to live traffic cameras, plus info on all the ferries, passes, construction and even wait times for border crossing to Canada. A must have if you live in Washington. The only thing it needs is a little dot or something in your current location on the map as it can be hard to find where you are if you don't know already
Ok. The actual website shortcut on my iPhone is better for me.
by RosakaM on 2012/01/19 12:02
I was excited at first to see they got an app. I've been using the actual website with the Tacoma map as a bookmark to check traffic before my commute. I really care more about seeing the traffic flow maps. When I select the Tacoma area, it goes to Google maps, but I see no traffic flow indication whatsoever. If I select the Seattle Area it shows the traffic flow. Why do they do that? I'll stick to my old methods and just have the bookmark saved on my home screen whenever I need to check for traffic for now.

Normally good, but this is unacceptable. It says the southbound border wait is less than 5 minutes both at the truck crossing and the often slightly busier Peace Arch. Being that it's early in the morning, I believe it. I've now been sitting at the border for 30 minutes with another 15 or so to go. Update the border times coming back into the country! Seems crazy that the wait times going into another country (Canada) are more accurate than the one coordinated with our own government coming back into the United States. I don't expect it to change the wait, just accurately report what it is!
Poor app navigation

Please fix app navigation. Once I configured favorites and go to check one of them I can't go back to favorites (to check another one, duh) without first hitting home. I'd expect from any favorite screen to be able to go back to the list of favorites, but the "Back" button takes me home... Two possible solutions: 1) on all favorite screens change "Back" button to "Home" button (reset user expectations), or 2) make the "Back" button to truly go back ONE step, not all the way to the home of the app. App is useful, but navigation frustrates me to the point that I'm angry before opening the app... Fire your tester!
