Does what it says!

Excellent app that I find really useful anywhere. Previously there was the Travelwest app that only covered the West of England. This covers the whole country. The advertisements are unobtrusive and if they fund the service, I really am not bothered by them.

The only improvement I would like to see made would be colour coding the stops on the map, so one knew which ones were on which side of the road. Currently one has to zoom in if one’s not sure. I do realise that not all routes are simple straight lines, some routes are circular and others start in one direction before turning to another direction but I think that colour coded stops would be helpful.

Map to small

After the latest up grade so you can see the buses is good but after selecting the stop it takes over the screen making the map too small. Need to be able to see map screen in full screen if you want. You have to remember we’re looking on phones here not laptops. This is something you need to sort out quickly. Please tell me why in your infinite wisdom you now don’t have the choice to say I want bus journeys only. If it is still there where have you hidden it. Another case of programmers fixing something that’s not broke. Started using google maps for buses now far more relit and more choices. This app has slowly gone from bad to worse. Please tell me why you have taken away the facility to be able to press on a bus stop and say get me here, or the other option get me from here. These was both very good options another tool you have taken away. It’s becoming a messy app. City mapper was a good app and they went the same way your going so don’t use it anymore. Just add Google maps is now better than this app.

Hi - thank you for your feedback. Our journey planning is based on transit data provided by third parties. We will remind them to keep this up-to-date so that journey plans are as accurate as possible.


Change for the absolute worse.

Absolutely despise the updated version of the app. The constant adverts popping up are so infuriating and inconvenient. I don’t see the need for them and to expect users to pay £3.49 for them to be removed is just ludicrous and disgusting. Probably wouldn’t mind if the app had improved for the better. Can’t even check tour bus without an advert popping up, any click on the app, an ad pops up. What a pathetic attempt at marketing and advertising - causing inconvenience so people delete your own app. The update deleted my saved stops - again, adding to the inconvenience. Furthermore and probably more importantly, the bus times aren’t even accurate and doesn’t show all operators/services. No option to filter the type of transport. This update has gone back steps not forward. Layout isn't great either, can’t even find options you need, hidden features or just gotten rid of. No use for the ticket feature. Just an all round disappointment. I urge you to revert back.

Hi - an issue with ads showing too frequently has now been resolved. If you think there is still an issue please do get in touch via Help and Support and someone will be sure to look into this for you. We apologise for any inconvenience.

If you log in to the app, your saved stops should transfer from the old app.
