DDOT is pleased to announce its new Real Time Bus App. We are also asking of you to let us know where and how we can improve it to make it easier for you. We are committed to its continuous improvement and your feedback is critical to its success.
We thank you for your patience and support.
Routes: Get real-time bus arrival information for any stop and route. Know when your next bus will arrive. This app will provide the estimated real-time arrival times of buses approaching your stop. It also allows you to see the location of buses on a map.
Nearest Stop: Not sure where your closest bus stop is located? Use the Nearest Stop Locator to find the nearby bus stops based upon the GPS locator on your mobile device or phone.
Trip Planner: Use the trip-planner to find the best way to get to your destination. You can even get walking directions to the nearest stop, your total trip time and distance. Schedule data on the trip planner consists of scheduled data, and is not real-time information. Please use the Routes feature for Real-Time arrival information.
Ratings and Reviews
I’ve given this app a year, no updates and not user friendly at all. The pdf’s online are easier to use.
There’s no rhyme or reason for how the stops are listed - North to South or vice versa would make more sense right? or even closest to your gps when you click on the route. An actual timetable ANYWHERE in the app instead of nonexistent bus arrivals at route stops would be helpful. 75% of the time there is a bus on the way and the app literally has nothing scheduled for the next 45 mins - this is unacceptable and useless. Our public transit is already a laughing matter regionally - the least we could do is have a working useful app.
Use the Transit app
DDOT suggest using a different app. They’re working on a tech upgrade and suggest riders use the “transit app” this app also works for other transit modes and in other cities. It’s the one with the green icon.
After this long no excuse horrible app
I have better luck using google maps or maps on my iPhone. I don’t want to say this app is completely worthless but it then I’d be giving too much credit. Come on Detroit you really gone let smart out do y again? It barely even tracks a bus. So sad.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
