Tired of wondering where your bus is? The Bus Detective is on the case. This app’s super-sleuthing powers tell you exactly when your bus will arrive.

With one quick glance, you’ll see arrival times for every bus headed for your stop in the next hour. It’s ideal for daily commuters, casual bus riders or even first-timers.

Bus Detective taps into real-time data to show you how many minutes away each bus is from your stop—even when the bus is running early or late. You’ll know if just missed a bus or if there’s time to grab another cup of coffee.

Bus Detective allows you to:
-View a minute-by-minute countdown of bus arrivals
-Bookmark your favorite stops to check times in seconds
-Instantly find bus stops close to your current location
-Search for bus stops by street name

This app currently supports:
-Cincinnati Metro
-TANK (Transportation Authority of Northern Kentucky)
-More cities soon!

No matter where you live, transportation mysteries are overrated. Download the bus detective to solve all your commuting dilemmas. Case closed.

Not a helpful app

This app is not helpful at all. It provides info on what time a bus should be at a particular location but whether that happens in reality is another thing. Then it is more dumb luck if the bus happens to be there at the exact time the app says it will be there.
The use of the term real time is also deceptive since there is no real time info. Buses come later or earlier than what the app says. Heck some buses don’t even show up at all. Of course that is more of a problem with the bus service but the app still shows the bus as coming here by the time it is supposed to have been there.

I use this app to help me catch the bus to and from work. Since I make this commute every day, I go to the same two bus stops. I've saved these as my favorites on the app, therefore it's easy to view when my bus will arrive. Bus Detective has been very accurate so far and helping me time my morning and evening commute. Would recommend to anyone riding the Metro

Makes mornings so much easier

This app is so wonderful. It is currently a snowy, cold winter in Cincinnati and this app helps minimize the time that I stand around in said snowy, cold weather. As I primarily am only bussing to and from work, I love being able to favorite stops for ease of finding the exact information that I need each day. I wait until my bus is two minutes out and walk down the street to my stop, and not long after the bus arrives! If the bus is running a bit late, the app updates and I can wait in my warm apartment or office for another few minutes.

Big fan of this app! I wish you could see all stops for each route, you have to use the metro website for that, but once you know the route/stop you need this app handles the rest.
