First Bus - Bus travel & times
The easy way to get bus times and route information throughout the UK.
The app provides door-to-door multi-modal journey planning for all areas of the UK, highlighting First Bus services where they are available.
You can save favourite stops, stations, locations and revisit recently searched journeys.
The nearby map shows the bus stops and train stations near you and links to live departure times.
You can also see the full bus route and all of the stops along that route.
Minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Great Update - vastly prefer this version
I use this app daily to get to work and university. Just select your destination and when you want to arrive/leave and it shows you numerous bus times and routes. You can search by route number if you want to see the stops and times for that service, so I'm not sure what other reviews are referring to when they say you can't see the timetable anymore?
I've only been recommended bus routes, even when standing next to a train station, so that's been great as well (I have a student bus pass as it's cheaper than a monthly train pass so I always travel by bus even if it means a longer journey than the train). I love the little feature where you can save your destinations with an icon and your favourite stops. This app is so much more useful now !
So so so slow, literally waiting 10 seconds to load a new screen, will tell me I have no internet connection even though I can go on to stream a HD video no problem. Doesn’t use my location properly tells me a near station is Leeds, I’m in South Wales, again I can go to Maps and it finds my location perfectly every time. I’m in a good 4G area what’s the problem? I go to buy my monthly pass and after about 5 minutes just trying to put it into the basket I put in my CV2 and it completes but doesn’t add it to my purchased tickets so I have to go through the ordeal again, only to have to pay for a physical ticket as the 15minutes I had planned to buy my ticket before my bus apparently wasn’t enough. A notification reminder would be great to say your pass expires in the next day or something cos apparently you need to set aside hours of time and patience for this. I have a brand new iPhone X but same issues on my previous iPhone 6S. Also where’s the iPhone X update? I can’t believe this has so many positive reviews.
Thank you for getting in touch.
Reading your comments it would appear you are referring to our mTickets app rather than the First Bus Journey planner.

Good all round bus app for the most part
Vastly superior to Lothian bus app, however the ability to plan/save custom routes would be nice and it shows all bus services not just lothian and shows all locations not just Edinburgh
Only downsides are the tracking isn't as upto date for lothian busses as the lothian app, no live tracking ability, search doesn’t list things by distance which would be helpful
There’s also a bug in the current version when organising saved stops and locations that causes them to swap places with each other rather than stay in the order from the draggable edit menu which makes sorting saved things a pain
