Ratings and Reviews

David McG


This is one of the most reliable app with respect to its settings, accuracy and departure/arrival itineraries that is worthy of a five star closure after thorough observations and usages. It’s accurate and punctual.
Typically German. Very proud and highly recommended to all.
👍🏽 Public Transportation. Keep it up.

Tiny Bug

! Shervin !

First of all thank you for bringing so many good features to this app. The only problem that I've noticed is that if the clock of device is not on 24-Hours mode and is working with am/pm system you will see irrelevant timetables. For Example As you want to check the routes after 12 am the app shows routes for 12 pm...



Since the second last update, the app always crashes when I am
using the selection of close by stops.
