Navigating my mountain passes 5/5
I travel to Seattle and Issaquah and West on a regular basis and to crossing Washington this app is fantastic keep me informed and help me feel safe and prepared I wouldn’t want to travel without
Very useful but not perfect 4/5
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? 1/5
Why does the official Washington State DOT application have banner ads? Seriously?
Simple idea 5/5
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.
The camera photos got smaller 4/5
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! 1/5
Why did you remove vessel watch?
Quality Dev Support 5/5
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 2/5
By gin n' tronix
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 1/5
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. 3/5
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 1/5
By KFREE UNVAiN.COM
Apps provided by tax-funded government agencies should not be showing ads!
Useful app 5/5
This app is especially useful if you’re on a road trip because there’s traffic info, border wait times and more
Decent app that needs an ad-free option 3/5
I hate ads and pay IAPs or subscriptions to get rid of them. No more than 3 stars ever until I can get ads out.
0 stars 1/5
Nice ads bro. 🖕🏼
Best App Ever! 5/5
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 5/5
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 2/5
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 2/5
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?
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? 2/5
By Mega junk, looks like 80s
I'm paying my car registration and road talls already isn't that enough for DOL?
Very helpful 5/5
It gives a lot of information on the map that I don’t find in my regular maps. Thank you!
Add CarPlay support & Remove Ads! 3/5
By Dookie 2x
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 1/5
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 2/5
By Anne in DC
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? 2/5
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 2/5
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!
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 3/5
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 1/5
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 1/5
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.
Very functional dependable (most of the time) app.
By Terry the violinist
More convenient than the Google Maps app, especially the favorites feature
Not reliable 1/5
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 3/5
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! 5/5
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!!! 5/5
I use this app multiple times a day to determine drive times and choose alternate routes given the current traffic volumes. Great time saver!!!
Ferry schedules won't load 1/5
By SAIC guy
So this app is basically useless.
Where is info on Black Ball Ferry to Victoria BC?😎 4/5
Would have been a PERFECT 5 with at least a link to this Port Angeles to Victoria ferry's sched
Can't download onto my phone 1/5
By EDM Fan1
It disappeared and now the new version stops downloading right before its complete
Does not load/open 1/5
Just the green dot with white T does not make it past that screen.
Just reinstall 5/5
Remove and reinstall the app, it works fine
Index.html error on traffic map 1/5
As others have reported, so this seems to be a general issue. Hope it's fixed quickly, the app seems to have some great new features. But, features are only useful if the app works. Thanks.
Map quit working in latest update 1/5
Map quit working in latest update. 4.3.0 on iPhone 6s

By Draco the Blue

The traffic maps in Seattle area will not load.
Used to work but the latest update is bad
Map doesn't work 1/5
I updated last night and the map feature no longer works. The error message says to contact the site administrator.
Ads block a significant part of the screen 2/5
By Ranch Roper
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 3/5
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.
