*** The ONLY app in the App Store that sends live reminders to tell you when it's time to go to the bus stop! ***

*** SAME great app *** SAME great features ***

Do you wish you could check when your bus is actually going to turn up at the bus stop?

Do you hate standing out in the cold and rain, waiting for that elusive bus to appear?

Is there any worse feeling than rushing out to the bus stop only to find that your bus has just gone past, and you have to wait 20 minutes for the next one?

Wouldn't you rather be sitting comfortable and warm in your house? Or sitting in the pub taking your time over finishing your beer?

Then BusMate is for you!

BusMate provides LIVE GPS-based (not timetabled) bus arrival times. Just like those Countdown displays that can be found at a handful of stops around London. Except it's in your pocket on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, and it covers every one of London's 20,000+ bus stops!

But wait! BusMate goes one step further - you don't even need to check when the bus is due! Simply set a reminder, carry on about your business, and BusMate will notify you when you need to leave for the bus stop!

- set one-off/daily/weekday/weekly reminders and receive a notification when your chosen bus is a specified time away from arriving at the bus stop
- "tell me when i'm here" wakes you up when you're nearly at your stop
- see bus stops and routes near you, in a list and on a map
- choose your favourite stops for quick access
- set nicknames for your favourite stops (e.g. home, pub, work, etc)
- want to know how long you'll be on the bus? "Track this bus" lets you see live estimated time of arrival for your chosen bus up to 30 minutes along its route
- search for any of London's 20,000+ bus stops by name, street, area or post code
- search for bus routes by number
- view the entire route for any of London's 700+ bus services
- view full 7-day timetables for all routes
- detailed bus stop information, including direction and letter
- set a filter at busy stops so you only see the buses you want
- travel news alerts for bus stops that are closed due to diversion, etc.

So if you want to be the envy of bus passengers all over London, download BusMate now, and never wait at a bus stop again!

Ok app

Iv been using this app for a very long time, it's just been updated which makes the app work better but I have stoped using it as it has no Apple Watch support which is a big must in this day and age and unless that gets fixed I think I'll have to stop using the app which I really don't want to done, like I said it's a good app but it can be made so much better with the watch support

Very good but one major flaw

It is a very good and accurate app but when things change like Lewisham Station area, the app doesn’t update so you cannot get bus details at all for that area. Otherwise it’s great

It's ok

This app is very hit and miss - it says a bus is due when it's already gone past which is so irritating. Also it glitches so when you search for a particular route it doesn't let you select it, a bug issue I think but they need to sort it out.
