Ratings and Reviews
I really love this apps! Thanks to my sister recommendation! It announced the arriving of the buses and the timing so that you no need to worry or rushing to catch a bus ride. I will recommend more people to download this apps. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Good app but reliability has to improve
Fantastic app if you want precise formation about the bus network.
The dynamic data, like arrival times are less reliable and have caused me to miss a bus or having to wait 2 to 3x as long as mentioned.
Also bus location is not accurate and half of time not available at all.
I therefore assume the inaccurate bus location results in unreliable arrival times.
I also assume the developer has no access to the bus GPS data and has to guess times differently. Maybe LTA could provide better and more accurate data to the developper. This would result in a truly 5star app.
Mostly accurate but fails spectacularly when wrong
I’ve had a few experiences where the app drastically changes arrival timings and even the order of arrival of subsequent buses.
The worst part? I’m taking buses from a bus stop that’s literally the first stop after an interchange.
Amazing how the info can be so inaccurate when there’s not even a big distance from dispatch.
