The live feature does not work! I was waiting at a bus stop watching the live feature, making sure I wouldn't waste my time waiting. I get there and it says the bus will get there in 3min. then a couple minutes later it updates to 17min! ..... no bus.... not happy. More General: the directions are not helpful. even though Google maps doesn't have live information, it recommends routes that are usually 10-15 min faster with less transfers. I was expecting this app to be a lot better...

Definitely what you should use when taking public transport in Victoria, with live updates and platform numbers available, unlike Google maps. It has useful information and makes paper timetables for the late part unneeded, which is good. It does have its problems tho, with one thing I notice frequently being the live time updates often very messed up in multiple ways and for the most curious reasons. The actual info screens at stations are also wrong at times, but don't agree with this app!
