Customer Reviews

Very useful

Very useful and accurate on most occasions. Any inaccuracies are probably more down to TFL, than the app itself. Only problem is you often have to come out of the chosen bus stops, then go back in to see the refreshed time. This seems to be an issue specifically on the iPad version, as I don't have the same problem on the iPhone one.


One of the better London bus times app. Very good visual app. Very accurate. Bus stops are easy to find. On occasions can not connect even though I have full data connection to my mobile provider.

Used Daily

This is an excellent app, constantly used when at bus stops without a matrix system. Very accurate. If you travel by bus in London, make life easier for yourself and get this app.
