Blue line -not good

I like the app but the addition of that blue line is annoying. You actually have to close the app to make it go away and then reopen so try not to activate one of the bus lines by touching it.

Could you elaborate on what you dislike about the route line? Please share to Trying to understand so we can improve the app as necessary. A lot of users have requested to see the routes when buses are selected.

Blue Route line

I actually like that blue line, it’s especially good later on at night or early in the morning when there are fewer buses out there on the road, you can go up and down the route quickly to see just how far that one or two buses that are out there on the route are. I am actually a NYC MTA Bus Operator with over 35 years of service and i also use the app for the job and we use it in another way, when we have to relieve another bus operator out there on the road that driver has a certain run number on that route so when we hit on one of those buses on that route not only can we see the bus number we can also see the run number which means we know exactly were the bus and driver is that we have to relieve and we know approximately were that bus is supposed to be on the route so we can see if the bus is going to be here on time or late and if he is going to be very late and we are near the depot or by the terminal we can go and get another bus from the dispatcher which helps the service out there. The blue line helps a lot especially when we have more than one route on the map so I love the app and the blue line, The only thing I just switch my phone from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 11 Pro Max and for some reason I can’t get the blue line anymore can you please help me and my co bus operator and see if this can be fixed, Thank you very much

My review

Good morning this app is giving me some trouble because I can’t get to see the buses right now and I was planning on doing a bus marathon and writing them down . Can you fix this problem ? I still love this app and enjoy it .
