This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
A BT bus app you can count on! Eliminate the confusion of planning a trip using an online bus schedule - let the BT4U app do it for you. The app allows you to plan a trip using real time bus information on BT buses without using a bus schedule.
- Plan your trip from start to finish using BT buses
- Find real-time bus, route, stop information
- Go now, or select a future departure/arrival time
- Detailed step-by-step instructions and maps for each part of a journey
- Save favorite trips for repeated use
- Many local destinations, including restaurants and retailers are pre-loaded for easy trip planning
- Handy “Go home” feature
- Contact BT from the app
- Visitor information
Note: This app was created as part of a research project to investigate the reduction of greenhouse gases. The app collects anonymous usage data so that BT may better understand how passengers want to use the bus system. No identifying user information is collected, or stored by this app or any support services that it uses.
Also note that the app collects positional data even when running in the background. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 1.7.2
Location monitoring only enabled when the app is in use.
Would love to see this idea executed
I have attempted to use this app multiple times during the past 3 years, deleting and reinstalling each time, and have yet to see this app function as described. The most critical issue is that “schedule and routes” page is always blank. In addition, when selecting a bus stop from the “nearest bus stop” panel the resulting page is blank other than the text “bus stop name”. The same generic text appears above an outline of North America when selecting the map option. This app would be very useful if it indicated when to expect a bus and what stops were along its route.
Either kills my phone or glitches
This app can bring my phone from 80% to 1% instantly, often killing my phone. Also, I am unable to set my home address.
Hardly Ever Works
It's nearly impossible to get this app to work. I have to be connected to wifi for the smallest chance that it will actually give me the times.
