Ratings and Reviews
Very useful, especially in the morning
The app gives you real-time updates on where the nearby minibuses are whether you are waiting at Choi Hung, Hang Hau or even HKUST, great for those with early morning classes who have to take the minibus as you can plan your journey ahead of time
Inaccurate arrival time
I use the app everyday for weeks and I notice that the app always gave me false hope especially during peak hour.
For example, The app may show that minibus no. 11 will arrive in 2 minutes, but after 5 minutes, the minibus hasn’t arrive, and the app show that the bus will arrive in 1 minute. I wait for 5 more minutes before the no. 11 bus truly arrive.
