    I used RailBandit with my Blackberry Storm and now use it with my DroidX. This app covers not only commuter rail but some of the major Amtrak Rail Hubs in the US. I love how it combines the train lines into one giant network. It is well worth the money!

    I have used this app for MARC to Metro Red line. Now that my office is moving I find it cannot schedule across 2 Metro lines. Neither MARC - Red - Green nor just Red - Green alone work with my stations. All permutations give errors about no options available. This is basic stuff for DC commuters. You will need to use another app for Metro interline.

    None of my schedules are being accepted anymore, and emails to the developer go unanswered.

    I have used this for years on both BB and android and its simply the best. Just download the train/transit schedules you want and then pick start and end points. Hint: in the setings tell it to show unlimited trains and you can plan ahead before you go on a trip.
