As routes are only seen by the group that you select to share them with, the first thing you need to do is create a group or join someone else’s:
-Groups are easy to create and manage
-Add members to your group from your in-app contact list or via a share link
-Users can share group links but only group controllers can admit members
-In larger groups choose who you want to be a driver (route creator) by giving them driver privilege
-Press the dots next to a group member’s name to add them to your in-app contacts, adjust driver privilege or remove them from your group
-Create or join as many groups as you like

Easily create, share and manage routes:
-Fill out the fields to create a route in seconds
-Group members can create and share routes with other members via route notifications
-Route notifications show the start and end stops, any mid-route stops, a route map, time, date and the driver
-You can allow others to suggest extra stops
-See who you are walking with as others join the route by clicking the members icon in route details
-Accept or decline with one click and a message is auto-sent that you are joining the route or not
-Exit a route to tell everyone on it that you’re not coming so they don’t wait for you
-One-click cancellation lets everyone know the route is no longer going ahead or you can send a route message to ask someone else to be the driver
-When the route ends you can rate it

Once route members have gathered, drivers start the route to track their location:
-This tracking shows route progress
-Useful if you are meeting others at a stop along the route or if you want someone to know where you are
-You can end the route to stop tracking any time eg to save your battery
-If you forget we auto-end route tracking for you after a set time

Contact everyone on your route any time without disturbing group members who are not on it:
-In-route messages will be seen by everyone on the route
-Route members receive notifications of new messages
-When the route ends the messages expire
-Please keep all messaging civil!

Use Footbus to create and share routes to walk together for safety in numbers and more fun too. Or even just to arrange when and where to meet a group of people. If you like it, please share Footbus with your friends.
