Ratings and Reviews
Compare to KMB, this app failed
Even the government warned the first bus about the lack of real time bus arrival capability, THERE IS NO PENALTY to the first bus. Nothing can be done. First bus enjoyed special rights and monopoly.
1. No bus arrival time for most buses. Buses in Kowloon have arrival time accurately for ages.
2. The very few bus lines with arrival time - the app requires the user to click a lot of button to know the arrival time for each station. Compare to KMB app, the KMB app gives arrival time right away depending on you physical location.
3. Few bus lines overlapping with KMB, the KMB app can even tell approx. where the Citybus is physically.
In conclusion, it is not because of the lagging of technology of Citybus for not putting arrival time. It is some bus lines are not operating up to the required frequency. And why is this ok?
Cannot see why the HK government can allow such a huge technology gap between HK island and Kowloon side. But we all should note that firstbus/Citybus is from the New World Development Co. AGAIN.
Can be great for HK people if there are more operators in HK island to break the monopoly.
Trash management - mgt please read
This app is good in the sense that it reflect the poor quality of the management of City/New World bus which the entire team in charge of the app (if developed internally) or the guys who set an unreasonably low budget for developing the app (if outsourced to third party).
The app is trash in the sense that:
(1) underestimated the traffic/bandwidth during peak hour which the app is not usable at peak hour
(2) poor app design/interface which is not user friendly at all
(3) app will crash a lot of time which showed poor debugging process
(4) can show management does not focus on providing quality service to clients
(5) I think its standard is even worse than some final year project for some IT university students
Please at least put a little bit more money into the app and make it at least comparable to your competitor - KMB.
It's 2018 for god sake
This app is merely a 3-star. At the very least it provides ver basic info that a passenger needs. However, seeing the development of the KMB, the time of next bus arrival is still not available. You promised this service will be available by 2018, and guess what, half of 2018 is gone, u have done nothing! Another downside is that the app just crashes way to frequently, sort it out!
