Le moi !! ,

One of the best transportations

It was really easy to arrive at the station due to "walk to station" option, I could have tracked the bus easily also. We arrived at the time exactly. However, it was a bit late for the pick up time but the driver did not take the charge and they actually sent me an apology and credit to make up for the delay. Honestly, one of the most respectful companies i have dealt with.

Track bus option!

Hey there swvl warriors, well first of all thank you for your efforts for making such an amazing transportation option, BUT the new update😩
It doesn’t support the tracking bus option anymore which is truly annoying, and the new timer idea isn’t accurate AT All!! it was very useful to know where exactly the bus is and to avoid calling the captain and also worrying about missing the bus, i really wish i can go back to the old app edition! Will you please consider re-adding that option again? Thanks in advance. :)
