Bus times were very accurate, you can see all buses on a route in your direction, and can "favorite" stops. But the app really rocked when my son left his mittens on the bus. I got the bus number from the app, and we tracked its progress 3 miles to the end of the route, even though another bus temporarily lapped it. After waiting for the driver break, the bus reappeared, headed our way. We tracked it back our way, and went out (into 8 degree weather) right before arrival. My son got his mittens.
Great App: would pay 5 times the price!
The map feature is especially great. If you click on the map it finds where you are and shows the bus stops near you on the map. If you click on the stops it tells you the real time bus arrival times. Really cool app! Especially, on cold days!
Must have app for bus riders!
Love love love this app. Have been using real time on select buses thus far, can't wait for Brooklyn/Queens roll-out. Great map feature and can save favorite stops. Contacted developers with feedback and got prompt constructive responses.
