Customer Reviews

Used to be good, no more.

I previously gave this a 5-star review. It was simple, intuitive, fast and my default 'go to ' bus App. No more. they've added clunk features, and appear to have taken away one that i used to use all the time (showing you the complete route of a bus), the navigation it now hard, and there are adverts too, even though I've paid to for it. That just shouldn't happen. I now use another Bus App instead, such a shame. A classic case of tryingt to improve something that didn't need it.

Seems to be broken now

This has been a great app in the past. Recent updates have left it telling me I've no internet connection when everything else works fine. When it does find the Internet the countdown timer of the next bus no longer refreshes automatically, you have to go off the stop and back onto it for it to fetch the latest time. I'll have to find a better bus app if it doesn't get sorted soon.

New update is needed

There have been new bus routes and changes to current ones. We need a new update to reflect these changes. Case in point, the 83 now terminates at Alperton and the new route 483 carries onto Ealing Hospital.
