Not accurate or user friendly When this app first came out, it displayed accurate times for the arrivals of buses at stops. Recently I have come to realize that this app doesn't tell you the arrival time based on the actual GPS location of the bus, but gives you the estimated time based on the schedule. We need what time the bus is ACTUALLY arriving as CATS is notorious for being late and you need to plan accordingly when necessary. You are better off catching the bus before you need it and using Google Maps or Moovit to plan your trips
I gather it gives bus times based on old paper timetables. Would be great if bus times matched current schedules. Better yet, if they were based on actual locations of the bus so we could know if a bus were late. Since I began commute from huntersville, I rarely get to work on time. It's a big mystery when to catch the bus. UPDATE they added GPS to app. But it is misleading. GPS is for bus stop, what any map app could tell you. Still no bus position. Timetables are now current. UPDATE 2. CATS website claims app is GPS linked to buses. Still not true.
Still not quite ready for primetime. Unlike similar apps from other transit agencies, you can't see vehicles on the route. The app is also really sluggish, trying to update stop locations as you move the map around. I'd really like this to look more like the CTA Transit Tracker, for example.
Not worth downloading GPS location is way off, very sluggish and difficult to use. Google Maps is much easier to use for transit. Running Android Nugat on a Nexus 6P.
Great theory poor implementation App claims to show real time information derived from bus GPS. However, the virtual bus on the app floats along based on scheduled stops, not where the bus actually is. In the words of a famous admiral, "IT'S A TRAP!"
Update: much better accuracy overall, however, if a bus is late it drops off the app as if it doesn't exist. The below problems remain an issue. Original: I've been waiting for this for over a year, almost 2. So far it hasn't been accurate. I've saved stops for arriving buses and been on the bus for at least a minute when it tells me it's finally arriving at the stop I was waiting at...it seems to regularly default to scheduled times instead of live. It should tell you if it's not a live ETA - especially if it's supposed to be as one of the next 3 buses as the app description states.
