Best Prediction System I use Bongo every day in order to attend my classes on time. I have yet to not arrive on time. However, i couldnt do it without Bongo. One click and I immediately see the stops I have added to my favorites list with very accurate predictions. I previously used the NextBus app, and was not very satisfied. It is not nearly as organized. I recommend this app to anyone in the Iowa City area that rides public transportarion. Thank you Bongo!
Rairly works 9 times out of 10 this app doesn't work properly. Either the buses arn't running (when they are), or the pages won't load properly. This app needs a major facelift. I've been using it for about 6 months now for the cambuses to the University and have only been happy with the results 3 times. Get it together people!
Works well now It updated to something powered by titanium and now it just doesn't load... It stays frozen on the screen. Used to work quite well, and I hope it gets fixed soon because I use it almost every day. Edit: they fixed it, things work pretty well now. Though I still sometimes have to estimate, because sometimes the Bongo schedule is a few minutes ahead, and sometimes a few minutes behind.
Unreliable It works some days. It can work in the morning, then stop. It is hard to determine when it will stop working. The app and website both do not reflect changes in stops due to construction. It works well enough when it's functioning, but I can't trust it.
Simply doesn't work. The live map is completely unreliable. Sometimes it says the bus is not running (when I know they are). Best to stick to the bus schedule posted online. A simple print out is more reliable than this resource draining app.
Only the maps are useful The bus times are almost always wrong, and impossible to get for most routes anyway, since bongo will almost never display all the buses that are supposed to show up at stop at a given time. According to Bongo, most of the buses in the Iowa City/Coralville area are never running, even when they are. The only way you can reliably tell if a bus is coming to a stop or not is to look at the map for a particular route. This app is very frustrating and nearly useless.
