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.
App doesn't always work in real time or update properly. Buses can move from being 15 mins away to just 1 minute away making you miss stops. Useless app. Esp with Emory transport services. Utter garbage
The app does very well letting me know just how late the GTA buses will be, for whatever that's worth. They need to adjust their paper schedules in anycase because now that this exists you can clearly see that the buses never match their times, not even in the morning. Love the app, still hate GTA with a passion.
One time I hit a rock while going about 25 mph on my bike. I flew over the handlebars onto cement, wrecked my bike, lost most of the skin on the right side of my body, had neck and back pain for months and had to go to a job interview with a black eye. It was still a more pleasurable experience than using this dumpster fire of an app. (Update: STILL TERRIBLE AND GETTING WORSE)
This app is so terrible. Went to see if there was a bus coming anytime soon. Does not show up anywhere on the app but yet there is a bus right there. Literally happens all the time. Even when I'm on the bus at the stop it says there is no buses. I thought this was suppose to make things easier. Not more confusing. Trust me people, stick to the bus schedule.
We've got some cool things coming to you soon, but we know that we can't go on without addressing some of your biggest concerns. Check out this latest update:
- No more battery suck for you, we've dramatically reduced battery consumption
- Fixed some annoying zooming issues with the map
- Worked out some kinks with the loading of agency, route, and stop data
