Pathetic is the best I can say. That's being kind. While there are some Drivers that take being on time seriously; most could care less if they are behind. Yes, safety is first. Yes, riders with disabilities take more time to get on and off the buses. While we can't expect the buses to wait at each intersection for transfers, they should wait at the transfer centers downtown, at Manchester and at Riverpark. Drivers should always be pleasant and smile. I frequently say good morning or afternoon and get a vacant look as though I'm bothering them. There are a few drivers that are helpful and knowledgeable about other routes... but in my experience, that is the exception and by no means the norm. When will we be able to see where the bus we are waiting for on this app?
After apps for the Bay Area this app is subpar. I am used to being able to input my location and destination and it roots it for me, shows the bus/bus’s that I need to use to get to my distention and the actual fair. Without those features this is just an electronic map. I can carry a paper map just as easily. This app was nearly useless for me. I doubt that I will use it. It is easier to just ask the bus driver for the location and transfers.

I take the bus every day to and from work. I like it because it tells you the main cross streets where the bus comes, which bus along with time it arrives. Would be nice if they added smaller cross streets also.. Otherwise excellent app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
