About this app

Dabus2 is the replacement for DaBus.
Due to the Google API update, the original DaBus Google API is no longer supported.
Some feature from DaBus will be missing.
If DaBus2 does not work with your phone, use the old DaBus app found here:
No more getting caught in the rain waiting for the bus.
No more scratching your head and wondering if you have missed the bus.
No more guessing when the next bus will arrive!
DaBus2 app takes the guesswork out of catching the bus on the island of Oahu. It uses the arrival information, courtesy of the Oahu Transit Services (OTS) to provide the best estimated time on when the next bus will arrive. This app also tracks the current location of the bus so you know exactly where it is located on the map. It is the app to download when you are in Hawaii.
This app is fun, simple and intuitive to use. Best of all, it is absolutely FREE!

UPDATE: GPS tracking still not working. Integration of the Skyline train with the bus and changes to routes played havoc with this app. Routes are no longer accurate, timings not accurate and the app administrators do not appear to have kept up. In some instances the app would not display tracking data. At this point the better and more reliable option is Google Maps.

Updated review: on some routes bus don't show up 1/4 of the time or is just sitting at the transit, random breaks or change of schedule/route/bus. Like just now, bus route 1 suppose to show up. A 1L showed up instead. No busses on on a major route for almost 30 mins compared what the fix/real time schedule (in consideration of all busses coming to this particular stop I was at) says and this has been going on for awhile... In my recent experience over 2 weeks.

Been using for months with success but recently can't use the app to check arrival times. Maybe it's a bug? Tried clearing the cache but it still didn't work. Posting a review in hopes that someone will see and report.
