Must allow updates to work properly I've had SmartTransit for a few months in Buffalo, NY and really like it a lot. Along the way I discovered that it is essential to go to Settings > Applications and in the SmartTransit settings you must allow the application to automatically update. SmartTransit will stop working if the transit provider's schedules change and you have not checked the box to allow automatic updates. The map feature was not working for me at first, but now it is working fine. Version 1.9 is what I am using now, and it is a lot better than previous versions.
Good potential app but needs work Trying to use mass transit more and need precise timing information on buses. I was hoping to find an app that shows real time bus numbers and actual locations on the map like some examples on google map with the SFO bus system. This app showed the county bus system that the app supports and in my area within 2300 ft there are 7 bus stops that is serviced by the same transit company. Unfortunately, the app shows just 1 bus stop in my area. I'd like to see the map showing all the stops when I widen out the map field so I have a sense where bus stops exist. Then when I zoom in, it gives more information on that particular stop. Click on the bus stop and it gives information on the bus # actual location and predicted time to that bus stop. This can really help with my time efficiency. Please keep improving your app!
So far not so good. I've only just installed but I'm 1/4 mile up the hill from the main drag & it is 2:00am, however it won't give any info on future times, routes, or any useful items. I guess I have to be closer to a stop & it has to be daytime.
Does nothing "No stop found nearby. Increase search radius and try again." I was sitting AT the bus stop. A bus stopped there less than a minute later. This is supposed to work in Salt Lake City and is one of the recommended apps on the UTA website. It doesn't work.
Didn't work. I live in Riverside, California. My city is listed on the list that it is supposed to work with, but it never found any stops and I know there is one right outside my residence. Sad, I was really hopeful.
transit maps? Just downloaded so I haven't fully tested it yet. On first glance I would say that it would be great if it showed the bus routes, or at least a link to the transit maps so you could see where the buses went.
Added support for:
★San Francisco Bay - Golden Gate Transit and Ferries,.
Now SmartTransit brings to the palm of your hand the public transit agencies of more than 100 cities with more than a quarter of billion population.
The Application is still in Beta stage so please drop me a quick email if it doesn't work for your location.
