Journey planner, not timetables
This does include all forms of transport and it works well. There are two options: trips (typical journey planner using start and finish points) and departures (where you enter a start point and a time and it gives you all nearby departures). What you don't seem to be able to do is access the timetables directly, e.g. search for a particular bus route. Merseytravel produce very clear PDF timetables with maps and in some circumstances it's that quick overview you want in order to plan a journey, without having to enter specific times and locations.
Version 4.2.6 is unusable!
Have loved using previous versions of this app but not anymore. This version is hopeless! Instead of just opening the app and it immediately finding your location and showing nearby departures, you know have to select ‘my location’ from a list before the app will do anything. When you’ve finally worked that out, you are then left with a yellow box covering half the screen, allowing only 3 departure times to be displayed at the bottom!!! I have never seen such a disaster of an ‘upgrade’! Please bring back version 3 and stop trying to be so clever: it’s not working!
Bus times lack accuracy
I like the app for being able to plan a route etc.
As for tracking departure, the tracking facility seems to be widely different to 1, what the companies use, and 2, the times the busses actually turn up.
