What’s New

Version 2024.1

Fixed an issue with the widget, which had a big unnecessary border. Sorry for that.

Furthermore, I have big plans for future updates and I hope I can release them soon.
I am time constraint and it is really difficult to work on this app in the few hours I have.

Thanks everyone for using the app and supporting me.
Also, a big thank you for every 5 star rating. That is highly motivating to work on the app.
Happy new year.

A must-have app for me

The only app I’ve found for our local buses that gives us general location data, let’s me see if I missed the bus or if it’s still on the way. It’s more accurate than I really expected it to be. Have used it for prob 5-6 years now and just wanted to say thank you!

Have no clue when buses are coming

The new update has made it so difficult just to see what time the bus is going to get to stops. I’ll check the night before and set an alarm but the time is constantly changing. I’m not understanding at all when the bus is coming, just a constant fear that I’ve either missed it or it’s extremely late. Had to wait for 10+ minutes for buses today so I’m super frustrated.
I’ll literally check the time before I head out and check it again when I reach my bus stop (a 2min walk) and it’ll be different... 1:51 becomes 1:45 and I’m left stressing over if I need a ride while I wait for the bus. Please bring back original version while new one is being worked on, I can barely rely on bus for transportation like this...

Developer Response ,

Please update the app to 2019.3. It will display times the old way. I'm sorry for the inconvenience it caused you and thanks for your feedback!

Where is the 35 Orchard Hill via Butterfield Hall

This update is no good. I’ll click on map and it’ll give me the 35 MC via Southwest with how many minutes late it is, but it says nothing about the 35 OH via Butterfield. Also the GPS is wicked wonky and will say things like walk 9 min or walk 1 min and then 8 min even thought it’s a 14 min walk. Since it doesn’t display the 35 OH route it’s another few clicks to get the route up so I can see when the next bus is coming. Also the premium version? I’m paying 30k a year and there’s a premium version of the bus app?? That doesn’t add up. Why does the paid version exist?
