Customer Reviews


First bus, are you taking any notice of what is being said? Your app has gone from useful to useless in one update. Did you actually pay someone to do this?? I think you should try and get your money back. We want an app just like the old one which we used every day.

1st review update: The journey planner could be a useful addition to this app but, because I am near a railway station, most of the suggestions involve a train. I do not wish to use the train! it would be more useful if, like TFL in London, we could deselect the modes of transport we DO NOT wish to use.

2nd review update: Your update today says you have listened to our concerns. Well, you haven't listened to mine. When I visit Penzance, for example, and use journey planner, most of the options involve using the train. Please allow us to select the Mode of transport we wish to use as I only wish to use the buses as I have a pass. This must be quite annoying for anyone who lives near a train station.

Don’t waste your time with this app...

...if you think it’s going to give you tracking information on your bus. It doesn’t. It simply counts down in line with the timetable - and that fails to be of any use when First change the timetable, but don’t update it with the app, as they have done here. I just watched my bus count down from 6 minutes, to 3, to 1, to Due...and then disappear completely. Do not rely on this app, it’s entirely useless.

What’s the point in this app

Buses never come on the time they should, app shows one time, the electronic sign on the bus stop another and call the timetable on the bus something different. We are supposed to be encouraged to use public transport but what’s the point if they’re never on time and always making me late!!! I won’t be renewing my pass when it’s due for renewal as I’d rather drive to work and be on time!!!!!! First bus needs a rocket up it’s behind!!!!
