Ratings and Reviews
No longer works
What people say seems to be true- you're more likely to write a bad review that write a good one. I used this app religiously for almost two years, but quite frankly it just doesn't work anymore. I would no longer recommend this app to people.I gave this app two months to fix itself, but it appears like this won't be happening.
This app used to have the scheduled and real-time bus times, which was a real lifesaver because Pittsburgh buses never come when they are scheduled. However, two months ago only the scheduled times were coming up. With that, it's like why download another app that takes up space when I can just use google maps? Now, scheduled come up when you click a button. However, these times are very wrong.
Multiple times I have missed buses because they came more than five minutes before the scheduled time and more than 10-15 minutes before the "real-time". I definitely come early but the reason I got this app was so I DIDN'T have to wait 20-30 minutes at a bus stop. If it can't do this, then it fails as an app. Unless they suddenly fix things, I wouldn't waste precious space on your phone for this app. I have deleted it.
Has worked perfectly 20/21 days so far
The user interface isn't perfect, but it works well once you figure it out. So long as the busses are transmitting their signal, this is accurate within 1-2 minutes. It's helpful to use the map and watch the movement of the bus you are waiting for. The one day in the last 3 weeks it didn't work was probably the fault of the bus people, not the app. Great job, keeps me out of the cold and rain.
Reliable as long as the raw data is available
This app is as reliable as the data. It does have trouble with rest stops, where the bus pulls over so the driver can take a break, so it says the bus is coming in 2 minutes when really it's 15. But overall this is the best Pittsburgh transit app I've tried.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
