I don’t want Rocketman to know my location but I want to see transit information. Can I still use the app?Rocketman App2021-04-08T09:34:45+00:00
Absolutely! If you do not want to allow Rocketman to access your location, you can manually enter your location and destination into the app. Remember to turn off Rocketman’s access to your location in your device’s settings.

How does the crowding feature work?Rocketman App2021-04-08T09:33:03+00:00
Rocketman users across the country will notice buttons on the countdown screen – the place you track real-time arrival times and alerts – where you can report crowding levels on your route. Riders can use this to inform other passengers about the state of crowdedness on their route, specifically:
If there is seating available,
If it’s standing room only, or
If a vehicle is at capacity and is no longer picking up riders.
Reported crowds will trigger alerts that will be displayed to all users who are looking up that route.

The Rocketman App is down, what’s going on?Rocketman App2021-04-08T09:29:41+00:00
Generally, the app goes down as a result of your local transit feeds having problems. If you aren’t getting bus times, you can try fully closing and reopening the app, otherwise just shoot us an email at email@example.com and we’ll see what we can do to help.
We use feeds and vehicle tracking provided by local transit agencies to show where buses and streetcars are along their routes. For trains, we provide arrival times and countdowns based on train schedules. For all vehicles, we also display alerts so you know about any delays as soon as they happen.
Why isn’t the Rocketman app working?Rocketman App2021-04-08T09:24:52+00:00
If Rocketman isn’t working on your phone, try these steps first:
Turn your phone off and back on.
Make sure Rocketman can access your Location in your phone settings.
Make sure Notifications are turned on for Rocketman.
If you’re still having issues, try deleting the app and reinstalling it from your app store (note: if you delete the app you will lose any content you’ve saved or added to your favourites).
If you’re still experiencing an issue after taking these steps, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us more & we’ll help troubleshoot the problem.
If the app is working but you’re not seeing any countdowns or transit vehicle arrival predictions, there is a chance that your local transit agency’s feeds are down (TTC, Translink, BC Transit, Calgary Transit, etc.). If that’s the case, you can let us know at email@example.com or tweet @rocketmanapp.
Does Rocketman work without data?Rocketman App2021-04-08T09:24:11+00:00
The Rocketman app connects to schedules and real-time feeds provided by transit agencies to provide users with up-to-date information regarding their commute. Whether that’s letting you know that there is construction on the subway this weekend or that your bus is coming in two minutes, Rocketman keeps you informed.
Rocketman is a Canadian-built transit app that shows you the info you need to get you to your destination on time with minimal wait times. View real-time bus schedules, track your streetcar along its route, save your favourite stops and get real-time transit delay alerts so you’re not left waiting out in the snow, rain, or unseasonable heat.
