Ratings and Reviews
The UI could be cleaner (It’d be better if they had a better bus icon or not use one at all) but it works, and you don’t need to access the UI frequently because it pushes notifications.
Setup is extremely straightforward so even the most brain-dead chick pea could figure it out, in fact you don’t even need the code that you’re given. The only possible confusion I could understand is not knowing your route # which the app isn’t at fault for in any way.
In regards to other people being incompetant and not knowing their code, that’s purely a user issue.

Where to find the code?
You can get it from your child’s school bus company. You’ll need to know the region, school and bus run, all of which you can get from the bus company (sent to me before school started in September) Kinda private stuff that’s not gonna be found in the app.
App is easy to set up.
Agree it’s useless
Took me 2 weeks to get a straight answer regarding the access code. Finally was given something that makes some sense and it still tells me « invalid access code ». What a waste of time. Bus company insists it’s the most up-to-date way to get notifications, but impossible to use. Email notifications are not prioritized as apparently the app is where it’s at... my current strategy is just to wait on the bus corner with an antsy toddler for an hour being wind pelted when there are delays as I receive no reliable notifications!
