A big disappointment...

David Edge

Trent Barton are a truly brilliant bus company, but sadly the app fails to live up to their high standards.

1) The times are wrong - at my local stop the printed times (at which the buses to be fair generally depart) are two minutes earlier than the app gives! It also gives some suspicious-looking late night routings that Trent Barton customer services say don’t run.

2) It seems to be aimed at pensioners with free bus travel so it only offers a rail alternative when there is no bus at all. Four or five hours Derby to Euston Road when the train takes 90 minutes. BUT! If it is for pensioners, why are the walking times only appropriate for athletic young people? Other apps let you set a preference for walking times and distances.

I’m pretty confident that a great bus company like Trent Barton will get this right in a few months time, but as of October 2017 I’d steer clear of this if you want accurate timetable information for Trent Barton buses.

Early Days


There are several basic bugs with this app, but if you can find the bus stop you want, it will give you the bus times.

Unfortunately it hasn't been tested well enough, for instance you can create a favourites list and then edit the list order. However when you return to the list from another function it is still in the order the stops were originally entered.

It's usable but don't expect it do everything the FAQ says it does.

Developer Response

Hi, thanks for the review. Sorry about the ordering problem, it must have slipped through our testing phase. We'll get to fixing that in our next update.



A really good travel app by the really good bus company! Runs very smooth and provides all information on journey planning & live times.

Developer Response

Thanks for the review, we're glad you like it.
