It doesn't work 90% of the time. Busses will show as "out of service" and then you'll walk past them 5 min later. Busses will be 10 min away but it actually just left your stop. It's a cool idea but if you have to be somewhere on time, don't trust this one.
It's not exactly real time. A bus can be 10 minutes away and then 'arriving' the very next minute. It doesn't update the location of the bus real time either so I just usually wing it and give it 10-15 minutes give or take. Since this seems to be the only app there is, there's not much to do but rely on this.
Cool! Would be nice if it worked properly though. It's cool looking but a real pain to use. Even when I change the routs I want to view it doesn't update right away and could take quite a while to load the routs I actually wanted to look at. There's not even a refresh button to force it to load the appropriate data. You kind of just have to sit there and hope it eventually decides to load the routs you want and it doesn't even do that a lot of the time.
I just recently installed the app and use it for the Suffolk County buses on Long Island. The Times have been literally accurate every time withina few seconds of what the app says. This has saved my behind and my job many days. I'm so glad I found out about it. To many times I've missed the bus in the past by literally a second because the bus was early and passed me on the way to the stop. Now I'm on time every day. Thank you for finally coming up with such an awesome app!!!! I'm very pleased and have yet to have any issues.
Not 100% accurate. Im at suffolk and the bus show me 37 mins to aribe and 3 mins later it was on the stop. As a suggestion you guys can add nort to south and vice. But at the end i was waiting for this app like a year ago that im ussing busses. Improve it good app!
I'm surprised to see so many negative reviews for this app! On Maui, this app works very well, so maybe the bad experiences are due to poor data output from the buses, not the app. I use it every time I use the bus! To protect your battery, use your app manager to kill it.
