Just started using this app today, so far it's close to the "Dream WMATA+VICINITY" app I've designed in my head for years. Often my commute involves stringing together Routes between 3 - 4 different Transit companies. Usually the ART, DASH, FAIRFAX & WMATA. I need 5-6 Tabs open in 2 different Browsers. I'm constantly manually refreshing! It's madness!!! This application appears to do what I've suggested for years-connecting existing DBs, have an interface that displays & updates selected sources

Somewhat useful (but so are printed and pdf schedules). Standing now at Stop 1001408 and the app has twice counted down time to arrival of D6, all the way down to "arriving," only to disappear with no bus in site. I understand that busses can run late, but the app is presenting those radiating lines indicating that it is reporting real time tracking. The app obviously is lying!

It's not really that accurate, but definitely helps to know around the times the buses should be there.
