Update needed

When zooming out on a selected route to track bus locations in real time, ALL of the cat logos for all routes completely obscure the map - rendering the app useless.

New update seriously drains battery

This recent update has been killing my phone battery by ~10% every time I open it. I go from 38% to 20% the other day instantly when I opened this app, and I tried it out his morning with battery at 96% and now I'm down to 85% within 4 minutes of opening this app. I have a good, pretty new iPhone, and I use lots of other apps with location services on constantly, but they don't do near the amount of draining this app does. Needs to be fixed.

Why screw up a perfectly working app?

So the older version of this app was showing 1 min times for all Free Trolleys, so I knew something was wrong. I decided to update the CAT app only to find that the brilliant developers decided to get rid of future arrival times. This was the feature I used the most (I need this app to get from and to class) and now this application is useless. Oh! It's also incredibly slow and boots up to a random location on the map, not my GPS location. Thanks.
