    by MenloCommuter

    Excellent trip planning, links for bike info, and zone pricing. Timetables were updated promptly when Caltrain made a change. Great user interface design-thx

  • Fantastic!

    by Leslie Goldgehn

    On a recent trip into San Francisco, I found this app to be indispensable . I was able to find my way around in unfamiliar territory and do it with ease and confidence. The user interface is very attractive and easy to navigate . Embark, you have done it again!'

    I normally use the Embark NYC (amazing) app so decided to use this on a recent visit to bay area. It delivered.

  • best Caltrain app

    by App Store Hero

    I've tried them all and this is the best! It even suggests switching trains when appropriate, which most of the other Caltrain apps fail to do.

  • The best Caltrain app!!!

    by Artsytype

    Finally- a great Caltrain app!! I've been trying all the other Caltrain apps for years - and they are all terrible. This is the best one by far :) Btw iBart Live is the best Bart app.

  • Excellent App

    by shiraz85

    Pandav apps for commuting have a GUI and features that I appreciate and make figuring out my commute quick and easy for me. I also use the free iBart app which has a similar look and feel. Well done.

  • Crashes when viewing station info

    by testastretta-999s

    Can't manage favorites -- it crashes immediately if you try to view station details. Poor QA on this release, it seems.

  • Doesn't work...

    by SevenVII7

    ... At all? It used to. What happened?

  • now requires ios 5?

    by Patddfan

    this was good until they discontinued support for ios 4.2.1

  • Be aware!

    by AppDreamer80

    This app worked just fine through my entire trip to Bay Area, but then it cost me $70 for a taxi because of the missed train - the price to not miss my flight. Tried in-app schedule update and it just crashed.

  • Confusing

    by GeoSchneider

    Planning a trip northbound from Mountain View to Redwood City. The schedule map shows San Francisco on both ends of the ride. So it's a little confusing, especially for a new rider.

  • Pass

    by Chris Fenton

    Downloaded because I liked the design and the station map. Deleted within minutes because it only does trip plans, no browsing the schedule or shifting between stations mid trip.

  • Free not good

    by EnergyGirlSV

    Difficult to switch between stations

  • In your face pop up ads

    by myicepod

    Had just loaded app but before i could tap my destination station a pop up ad appeared over the station trying to sell me wifi. DELETED app This is a case of Free isnt always useful.
