Live departures, routes, journey times and journey planner - covers bus, train, underground, tram, and ferry.

► Live or scheduled departures - you choose
► A to B route finder, for when you don't know which bus from which stop

► Departures for future date/times
► Routes and journey times (view as list or map)
► Stop locations accurately marked on a map
► Track your position along a route
► Filter departure boards.
► Store and edit favourite stops.
► Recall recent stops.
► Show street view of stop locations

Amazingly intuitive to use:
► Tap stop markers to see info bubbles - tap the info bubbles to see the departures boards.
► Tap departures to show routes and journey times - choose to view on the map or as a list. (Note that this app differentiates between route alternatives for the same service!)

1. Drag down on the tab at the top of the screen to activate the route finder. Works like a light-weight journey planner - you say from where, to where and when, then let the route finder crunch through every UK timetable to find suitable direct services.

2. Tap the "i" icon on the map info-bubbles to see more options for a stop. "Long press" on the "Favourites" or "Recent" stop lists gives similar results.

3. "Verify" cached routes if you think there may be an alternative routing for different departure times. (You can opt to have this done for automatically by switching off "Cache routes" in settings. NB. "verified" routes also provide vehicle descriptions (region dependent).

Faith restored, however...


Usually brilliant app. Big hiccups after fee installed, but generally recovered now. However, since Cambridge routes changed at beginning of year many now appear backwards! (7, busway etc) & others persist in discontinued routes (8 towards Addenbrookes). When it's working it's great, when it doesn't it's infuriating!
Glad this app was saved from oblivion, but still printing some routes backwards, and indicating wrong stops where they were changed ages ago. Also, no concept of Bank Holidays, when Sunday services apply. Still the best there is though. But please get bugs fixed !

Stopped working!!


This app was amazing and suddenly its stopped working altogether. Everything I try to do is met with a ‘no connection’ error. I’ve mailed support and had nothing back. It won’t even allow me to check my subscription. Please tell me this will be fixed soon!!

Why will the Bus Scout app not show where the bus stops are or which buses are on the route and the times. All I have is a map telling me my location. I already know that! It used to work well on my old phone.
