This is an excellent idea for all transit since there is a high demand for the riders to schedule around knowing when the transit may actually arrive and if there are delays. There is only one bug I’ve found in the software and that’s when clicking on a bus stop, viewing the busses that are coming, when I select one of those inbound busses, it often displays a blank screen while it is intended to display the rout and the current bus location. It often only works to see where the bus is located if I go back to the main page and view the routes and then select a rout.
Pretty accurate and convenient
This app is so convenient. It used to be that I would have to go online all the time. With this app in hand, I don't have to anymore! It shows you all the available bus routes, can set alarms/notifications of when the next 2 buses are coming (useful for morning rides), and how full it is (Ex: This bus is 25% full). There are times, not a whole lot, that it can take a minute to show where the buses are with the icons but regardless, it still gives you an estimate arrival so it still works out! Would recommend if you're an avid bus rider.
Consistently has issues with busses not being tracked even though they’re seen driving around. They sometimes put out announcements regarding bus routes but for some reason fail to let us know when buses just aren’t being tracked. The bus drivers swap drivers with no advance notice given to bus riders who are also on a schedule. The busses are frequently on schedules that either get you to campus way too early or way too late.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
