This app almost never works. It gave push notifications for the first 2 days and then completely stopped. No information was changed. It loses my address and school location daily...just opens a blank map. Now after barely 3 weeks of use, it stopped completely. It won't validate the user and locks up. I've reloaded the app 4 times, I'm now permanently deleting it.

This is about the worst app to track the bus schedules. Most of this year it has never worked and the way to set notifications is cumbersome and complicated not to mention setting the radius when the notifications are triggered. There is no way to remove your old devices and someone the maps shows without the actual bus on it but keeps refreshing like it is updating the bus location.

Update: App still doesn't work. From the looks of it,no updates have been made to fix the issues. Here are my issues with this app: 1. It never displays the right location of the bus. 2. I received notifications sometimes and never on time. 3. There's glitches with the yellow arrow that show where the bus is; it has bounced around numerous times on the map. Then come time to find out the bus had already been at our stop. 4. Your contact support page does not work. It says "account not found."
