Use it daily, loved it until...

I use this daily. It has always been reliable. However, I found out today that there is a discrepancy between the arrival times of a stop on your favorites pages and the actual arrival times of that same stop on the regular display page. Not good. My favorites page said my bus was arriving in 14 minutes. I've been waiting here for about 10, so I checked the app. On the regular page, it now said the bus was arriving in 18 minutes instead of 4. Fix this please.

Helpful transit app.

This is a nice app. Unless you use the 76 bus with L A Metro. I am slightly disabled, I have an arthritic left knee. I cannot run. So I like to know when my bus is coming so that I have enough time to walk to the bus stop. As I was leaving the office this evening, I looked at the app, the app said one bus was coming in six minutes but another one was behind it and would arrive in eight minutes.

Not only did the bus not show up; but the city hall electric billboard doesn’t show that any 76 buses are due. At all. So I just caught the 78 and will have to walk about 2 miles to get home

I realize the app can only be as accurate as the information they get from mta.

Almost Perfect

This app, for my purposes, would be almost perfect except for the 36 Teresita (SF Muni) line, in all directions. The bus may pass one stop, but it goes up the hill and loops around and will pass by that same stop around five to seven minutes later. The app either doesn't show some stop(s) or the same time for both stops.

Otherwise, pretty darn good app.
