So much better than Bongo

This is the app to have for bus routes in Iowa City. It works great and updates in real time. The Bongo app was terrible and the most recent version crashes and fails to get past loading for time predictions. This app is the best and I wish I had found it a long time ago.

Has been inaccurate recently

I have been using this app for a year now and it’s been great up until recently. All the sudden it will, every so often. show that a bus is coming, do the whole countdown, show that’s it’s arriving, but there’s no bus. When it says “arriving”, I check the map and there’s no bus nearby. This is extremely inconvenient as it has caused me to go to the bus stop for a bus that isn’t coming several times. The busses that I take only come every 30-60 minutes so it’s really a big inconvenience for me when I don’t have accurate information. For example, I recently thought I was waiting (outside, in 10 degree weather) to catch the last bus of the night when in reality the last bus had already come.

Better than Bongo, still kind of a pain.

This app is 100% better than Bongo. However, I have issues with the app not notifying me in time when I in fact selected a time for a notification, and this has caused me to be late for class on many occasions. Also, the times are not always accurate so beware. I am about to be late for class AGAIN because the bus got here 3 minutes earlier than it said it would and I have to wait for the next one.

The latter could just be a problem with the Coralville bus system, and I don’t know how you guys work it out with the busses to get their times, but PLEASE work on making it more accurate if you can. Thanks.
