Buscouver - A Beautiful Vancouver Bus Times App

By Padraig Kennedy

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Buscouver is the first transit app to use real-time bus data for Vancouver. Enter any bus stop sign number to see the next 60 minutes of buses arriving at that stop.

* The most accurate times possible.
* Simple, beautiful interface.
* Tiny, fast download size: It's live data, so we don't need to include a huge schedule database.


I read and consider all your reviews — if you want a response, tweet me @buscouverapp


The data comes from TransLink™. I have no affiliation with TransLink, but they are awesome because they encourage third party developers like me. There's not much I can do if the data is occasionally wrong buy I've found it to be extremely reliable in my own usage.

If you doubt that real time data is truly available, please do some research (Read TransLink™'s buzzer blog!) before posting a review.

If you have a support issue, use the support link — Developers can't respond to reviews.

I will never hassle you inside the app, but if you like it, please let everyone else know by giving it a review.

What's New in Version 1.4

* Major speed upgrade
* Far fewer server errors.
* Buscouver now works off the official TransLink API.

Waste of money

This is the definition of false advertising.

Here I am, rather peeved that the bus I am waiting for is over 20 minutes late, and I thought someone must have had the same idea as I do now: track buses with GPS data.

I get on the bus, and a quick search after, I find this application. In thinking that I can finally use the transportation system in Vancouver reasonably predictably, I was almost overcome with joy. Unfortunately my curiosity led to a sad conclusion.

As I sat there in the bus, I decided to check the schedule for my final stop. If there is real gps tracking involved, then I can expect what this application reports to be at least correlated with the actual time I get there. Needless to say it wasn't even close. It reported 15 minutes and the bus got there in less than 3; it is also worth noting that what was reported, happened to be what translink has as the bus schedule.

It is possible that this application takes into account both GPS data, and what the nominal schedule is supposed to be, but I don't think that is the case.


I'm very happy with this app. Does exactly what it is advertised to do!

Description is a lie

This application only give you time according to the bus timetable. This doesnot help if bus is late or early. In description it says its connected to translink systeb but no real time positioning is involved. If you are looking for an app to tell you what time the bus is scheduled at your stop than go for it. But if you need real time info you are going to wate you money. It told me the bus would be at stop in 3 mins which was the scheduled time. But in reality i missed the bus because it was early. It happened on more than one occasions.
