👎👎👎👎 Pointless!!!


To unreliable!!! 1 minute is more like 10, I’ve just waited 25 mins for a bus that the app said would be 4, earlier I waited 20 mins for a bus it said would be 7, and blah blah blah, you get the theme, and It does this about 90% of the time, In fact its actually quite amazing when it’s right! I need something more accurate, don’t get me wrong, I realise that busses are delayed due to the volume of traffic and the time of day and so on, but if you say a bus is going to be 5 minutes I shouldn’t have to wait for nearly 20! There’s absolutely no point in saying a time at all, you may as well have a screen at every bus stop with just random times on it that don’t mean anything!!!😂👍 joke! Don’t bother to down load unless you don’t mind having your time wasted, as soon as I find a better one (which shouldn’t be difficult) or as soon as a better one is available or unless of course this one actually does what it says but I won’t hold my breath!

Good but keeps resetting favourites


This is one of the few apps I use every single day. It’s a great app that I’ve relied on for years to get around London and it’s been a great timesaver. Two complaints:
1. Occasionally buses appear to be 10+ minutes away but within minutes/seconds can switch to 1 minute away. This may be an issue with TfL 🤷🏾‍♀️
2. I’ve organised my favourite stops according to my daily commute to save time but these inexplicably keep changing into a random order. The UI isn’t that easy to work with when re-ordering favourites and is quite buggy. This is the only thing stopping me from upgrading the app so hopefully there will be a fix for this in the near future

Otherwise I’d highly recommend this app. Even with the issues it’s worth a download

Best app ever!


I use this nearly every day for work, stops me hanging around guessing on cold mornings and is a massive help when trying to find a stop in a different area, accurate times so I know if I have time to nip into the shop or get a move on a must have for British weather plus a handy number plate for those drivers that want to just whizz past your stop 🤣 I can check my balance and top up all from the comfort of home no more blank looks from the driver because I've run out or desperately trying to find a corner shop.
