About this app

Where’s the Bus? Now You’ll Know!

When the MyCityBus app is downloaded on a rider’s phone, geolocation determines the closest bus stops to their location. And with one screen-tap, riders can view estimated departure times for the next buses and routes servicing these stops.

By selecting a favorite location or route, or entering a starting point and destination, riders can get real-time GPS-based information for all possible bus options. A trip planner can also make future transit plans. Riders can track the location, estimated departure time and passenger load of the selected bus on an interactive map powered by Google.

From their customer account, riders can subscribe to receive text, email or push-notifications containing bus departure information, including one-time or recurring notifications for specific routes, days and times. Another feature identifies detoured routes and temporary stops.

CityBus can also post news stories about weather, detours, or community events, publish route-specific or general news, or add pictures or video content.

Riders without data plans can get real-time information as well by texting a designated phone number. After inputting their stop number, the system will automatically return estimated departure times for the next buses.

The app is ok. Being a Purdue student timing is very important when going to and from class. This app has been very finicky these past couple of weeks. I used to absolutely love it, but now it doesn't actually show me the bus location. I have to click on the stop individually to see the times. I've also had many instances recently where it will say the bus is due, and then all of a suddent they aren't coming for another 10 to 15 minutes. Very frustrating especially when I rely on this for class.

App consistently does not show your actual location. Sometimes it does and sometimes it shows the location from the city bus center (when I am not even there), making it difficult to use. A useful app otherwise. I just wish this issue was fixed because it is hampering the app's effectiveness.

A decent app, except they've taken away the My Location feature so it doesn't actually just automatically tell you the times of the bus nearest to you, which kind of defeats the point. Instead it just tells me the times of buses in City Center, which I never asked for and don't need. Otherwise a useful app.
