Style: The Little Things
We've tightened up a lot of the fonts and colors across the app. Just a little spit and polish, really. We care about that kind of stuff.

As always, please rate and review our app: it really helps. If you're experiencing any bugs or issues, please send feedback through the app!
Ratings and Reviews
A good start
This app could be a major improvement to the dumpster fire over at mystopmobile, and I appreciate what you guys are doing. Already the app feels more fluid and is more aesthetically appealing. I love the feature which tells you if the bus is on time.
However, if you really want to make a good bus app you need to include an interactive map where you can “find your location” and see the bus stops closest to you on the map. This would make it so much easier to plan routes and quickly find bus stops even if you have no idea where you are. The map should also include visualizations of bus routes that you select.
If you make these changes this app could be excellent.
Developer Response ,
We're glad you enjoy the app! Thank you so much for your ideas and feedback. We plan on doing user testing and research to find out how we can improve and redesign the app.
You can update your rating and review if you like. We always appreciate ratings and reviews that reflect the current features and functionality of the app!
Useful real-time info
This app really exceeds anything available from TCAT, and is more usable just in time to check if a bus will be departing soon near you to a specific destination like Cornell or the Commons (from a variety of stops). Thanks so much for making this available - it was sorely needed.
Super useful except when offline
I love this app! Helps me see all the routes from point A to B, so I can choose. It tells me if the bus is late which is awesome!
The adjustable tome of departure or arrival means I can plan for up to a week ahead.
The app skips to the next arriving bus too soon. So if I’m at the bus stop at 9:43 and the bus should be departing now, but is a minute late and the app hasn’t figured that out, it shows me the next bus instead.
And a few times the app just hasn’t been in communication with the bus so the time was off.
Overall, still my favorite transit app for my town
