Ratings and Reviews
What I've been looking for
I've been looking for an app that will show me the nearest Bus and L stops quickly and simply by detecting my location; and then showing me when the next departures will be. This app works great and does the job. I wish there were a way for me to pay to have the ads removed though.
Flickering; slow connectivity issues
Re: Some connection errors; very slow data/connection issues; flickering....
The ads were flickering on/off very rapidly. Very slow bus tracking; a bit of poor data connection. Perhaps mayB has bug problems. Please do fix & update this app to: iOS 8 software. Thanx so very much!!!
Just Say No
Does not work. It's slow, non responsive, and constantly gives error messages. Always get the "There was an error processing your request. Please check you internet connection." Also the ads at the bottom on the screen constantly blink and it is very annoying. Do yourself a favor and download another app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
