Better than Google Maps for the most part I like the organization and the specific ETAs of buses down to the second. The only part about this app that isn't better than Google Maps is the lack of a feature where you can set either your departure time or arrive by time and see when the buses are scheduled to run. With this additional feature, it would be easily five stars.
It's a good idea but only shows the local bus arriving/departing according to it's posted schedule. It'd be best & most efficient of it tracked the buses in REAL TIME so that you know when the bus's is running late, etc.
I use it to track my buses here in Stockton, well at least some of the routes. I'm pretty sure MV Transportation who runs the county division for San Joaquin RTD would rather see this go away. Some drivers have their GPS activated, some don't (again, county division). Today I had activated a report that a fixed route with paratransit deviations was late today due to a deviation, so that other passengers who use the route know what's going on. The report got deleted by either SJRTD themselves or MV. Great app if all of the transit agency could get on board and allow it to be used, but so far it seems to only be truly utilized by the Metro yard.
For my VTA express bus this app has been very accurate reporting location and departure time. Once I selected my route, using the app requires nothing more than launching it and glancing at the screen. One thing press shows the realtime map and another press returns to the summary screen. The only thing I might change is having an option to keep the bus location showing on the realtime map instead of needing to zoom out and scroll around to find the bus.
Times are accurate but the location services are abysmal. The app has NO idea where I am or what routes are nearby. Much better options available
It really works! Goodbye slow and often wrong next bus. Hello best options, times and cost. Brilliant.
Two key improvements:
- Trip duration estimates now better incorporate real-time information
- The UI now indicates when predictions are based on scheduled rather than real-time information. We strive to provide the most-accurate real-time predictions, but when this is not possible (e.g., due faulty hardware on a vehicle), we clarify this by removing the to-the-second countdown and showing a clock icon next to the prediction
