Customer Reviews

Definitely works for me!

The app itself can't stop busses from being stopped behind garbage trucks or at rotating red lights. It only says how far away the bus is under normal circumstances. And it's great at that. If you be reasonable about it, it should work for you too! This app has been a lifesaver for me. Minus one star because sometimes it doesn't show busses scheduled to come up if their GPS isn't turned on. But, that might be a bus GPS problem.

I would also appreciate if a full schedule was available on the app so I could see it at a quick glance.

Horrible

Loses my saved stops constantly, and sometimes my saved stops won't even show up on the 'saved' list. Predictions are usually right, but a decent job transit app should give accurate times 100% of the time because that's the entire point for the app. Can't tell you how many times I have missed buses and been late for work or other things directly because of this app. I have been stuck walking home or needing a taxi because this app's last bus of the night predictions were incorrect and all over the place - bus times kept jumping around for literally an hour and the bus never showed. I simply cannot rely on this app. I will be deleting it for good and looking for something else.

Works fine for me

Not sure why so many bad reviews or what makes the difference, but this app is always reliable for me. I rely on it daily getting around Boston and Cambridge.
