Updating my review now that the new app has been updated. I think it's fair to say that the transition to the new app had it's problems (Massive understatement). Credit where credit is due though. The developers have been responsive and the app is much better now. Really pleased with the latest update and the return of renaming and ordering my favourite stops. Thanks.
Awful and confusing to use. Wanted various available bus times for the next day. It insists on having a travel time. Not possible, need to know available times in order to plan my trip, isn't that the point of a timetable?! Same inflexibility with locations. I do not know the postcodes or names of stops.
Where are the timetables? Use to be an OK app. Not now. Unable to plan anything as no way of identifying actual bus stops and times of departure and arrival at any chosen stop. Old app much easier. Bring back local timetables.
It should be more accurate and say if a bus is delayed rather than no info at all. So after waiting for a bus that should be due, but no info, so you decide to rush to the next stop with more choices of buses only to find that the bus you waited for passes you by, if it arrives at all..
Gordon back to the old one. That way we might know what's going on.
Used to be ok, but now it's awful. You can no longer quickly look up when your bus is due, and you can't view timetables - why??
We’ve listened carefully to your comments about our new app, and this update adds the features you've told us are important to you.
Now you can:
