Great app but missing a more detailed map

From my experiences of a year with the app, it is very good, giving accurate and detailed info on transport routes in NSW. Despite this, the main issue I have is that the map in the app has limited detail, like train stations and landmarks, which means it is hard to coordinate exactly where I am (using the hard to read dark app map) without cross referencing this with Google Maps which includes this detail. If the developers could add maps similar to Google Maps, this app would definitely have 5/5 best transport app I’ve tried.

Best Transport App for Canberra

Given the lack of any decent apps for the ACT this one has to be the best, simple and easy to use, gives you heaps of information and even tells you the bus number, type, how old it is etc. developer is quick to assist with any problems or suggestions you have too! Definitely worth Dow loading and subscribing too, only thing missing is live passenger loadings, although I’m unsure if Transport Canberra even has that data publicly available.

Best app

Love this app! Been using it for like 4 years now. Its so helpful when looking for where my bus stop is and figuring out if i’m going to make my connection or not.
However, over the past week sometimes all busses will say no real time data but when i click it, there is real time data and i have to like click some stuff and go back and forth for it to update. Not too sure why. Hope this gets fixed soon :)
