Are you fed up with using primitive instruments just to figure out when you can catch the nearest bus to North Campus?
Fear not, goUMD is here - the bus app made by students, for students.
In all seriousness, goUMD was developed to make navigating campus via the bus system easy and reliable for both newer and older students. With goUMD you can:
Pick a place and find the best route there - If you are a newer student and don't know your way around very well, goUMD has you covered. Just search for, or select from our predefined set of destinations, and immediately get information on every bus that will get you where you need to go. We include metrics like distance from drop-off, ETA, arrival and drop-off time, pickup location, drop-off location and more. We also have live maps of each bus, so you can see exactly where the bus is on its route.
Quickly select a route and get data for all buses on the route - If you already know which route you want to take, just select 'Live Route Map', and pick the route you wish to take. You will be taken to a live map of all buses operating on the route, as well as arrival times to the stop closest to you.
Plan out a ride - If you know you will be leaving in 30 minutes, for example, select 'Check Arrival Times', and choose the route you wish to take and stop you will be waiting at. You will then get a timetable for that specific bus's arrival times at your selected stop as far as we can predict.
We also support favorites for quick access to important routes!
Whether you're coming back from a basketball game at the XFinity Center, a freshman making the trek back to your dorm after another night out at R.J. Bentley's, or grabbing a bite to eat on Route 1, goUMD!

Ratings and Reviews
Every time I open a location option, it crashes, so the app is effectively unusable. It also gives no crash report, or reason for crashing.
good dev response time, relatively quick bug identification and fix, and the app is now usable and useful.

This happens if you are using military time, and an update with the bug fix will be pushed this week
A must-have for UMD students
If you’re a University of Maryland CP student, you need to download this app. The interface is gorgeous—both slim and minimalistic while being very functional. The app works and is very accurate. Most importantly, it is leagues better than that awful NextBus app.

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you like the app
Saves Sweat and Tears
I was unlucky and got stuck with parking at Lot 6... it takes 20 minutes to walk to any of my classes from my car. Thank goodness for this app, it makes going around so much easier! Time to sit and enjoy the AC on a bus in this summer heat :)
