The most accurate app for the RTA, however...

It isn't a well-functioning app. I have missed buses which—anyone living in Southern California who occasionally needs to take a bus knows—dues to the constant geotag location error that pops up every four or five times I open the app (buses run every hour in Riverside, CA; you miss one, you're an hour+ late for work). My location on my phone is on; it always is for this reason: to check bus times when I need to take one. This is a terrible error that should be fixed immediately.

Not user friendly

I always have to find my own location when I open the app instead of it starting the app loading on my location, not to included that it can never include a time stamp. It tells me no predictions available so I have to refer google maps to tell me when it’s supposed to be there instead of real time like it says. Has made me late and miss the bus having to resort to other travel methods such as Uber and Lyft for a ludicrous price.

Extremely buggy

Half of the time when I open the app it asks for my location and when I try to press the locator it tells me my gps is off. Most times it has the wrong times and I’ve missed the bus countless times because of false information.
