Customer Reviews

Amazing App!

I've been using this app for over a year and it's a MUST have if you live (or visit) NYC. The NYC bus system is such a valuable resource to navigate this vast city and this app easily and intuitively puts the entire bus system at your fingertips! I would be lost without this app. Hands down the BEST bus scheduling app out there. Love all the recent updates; keeps getting better and better!

This app works!

If you want one less source of anxiety in your life, get this app. The map interface is beautiful, you can save favorite routes AND it's accurate. It banishes the annoyance of wondering "is it ever going to get here?" with real-time arrival data. Best of all, it bestows a sense of control over a slice of precious time.

Poor "Everyday" Use App

For all the great reviews this app has much to improve on. My gripes:
1) Annoying that the app starts on THEIR home screen which has no relevant information for travelers.
2) Their icons of bus stops produce a headache of clutter.
3) Inconsistent results in terms of units. First result is time and the rest are delivered in miles leading to an unusable experience for proper planning. It should be all miles or all estimated time, preferable the former or how many stops away.
