Crashing on map update. I thought that was fixed in January :-) Otherwise great app, should be filled with disclaimers because of poor data. OCTranspo buses seem to turn GPS on or off randomly, disappear and re-appear, come when none scheduled/GPS, etc... In our morning rush hour experience over two years, the system is wrong for 10% of the buses in fall/spring and 20-30% of the buses in winter, and 50% of buses in the two weeks before/after Christmas. Good way to encourage driving or cycling :-)

I used this app everyday before COVID. I like the interface - it's very convenient to see multiple bus arrival times at the same time, and the ads are unobtrusive. Unfortunately, now the app hangs on the "Initializing......" screen when starting up, even after clearing data and reinstalling the app. 5 star app after the problem is fixed.

TERRIBLE since the 05/15/19 update! things not saving properly under favourites, bus routes shown as late/not running when its the opposite, VERY hard to use on the go; used to be seamless but they added a bunch of features that aren't an improvement from the last version. Used to be my go-to transit app, but ya lost me! please make the app more user friendly! 01/02/2020 -no longer shows bus times for certain routes; just says they aren't available. Not sure it was possible, but the app is worse
