How to set up:
You define your frequently used stops on your phone by stop ID and name them for easy reference. Use Fast Lookup or the agency website with SmartPaste to find your departure stop in advance by route and the route's destination, or just check the sign at the stop. Website SmartPaste tells you when you've navigated to a single stop and grabs the stop number for you. After you've entered a stop ID, its location is displayed to the right. Tap it to auto-fill the stop title. The stop subtitle is a good place to remind yourself where you're going. For example, "To Work" or "From Work to Home". You can rearrange, modify or delete your stops so the ones you need most are at the top. Customize the text so it looks great on the Apple Watch.
Once that's done, whenever you open the app on your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, choose your stop and real-time arrivals of all routes at that stop appear instantly!
This app works best if you configure your Apple Watch to Resume Previous Activity on Wrist Raise. This setting is found only on your iPhone's Apple Watch app.
When using this app as a transit board, be sure to keep your device on a power source and turn off auto-lock in Display Settings so the screen does not go to sleep.

A long overdue refresh: now works with all iOS device screen sizes and orientations.
- Displays properly on iPhone X, and now runs on all iPads.
- You can now rotate to landscape orientation - turn your old iPad into a sign board for the bus stop outside your business.
- Details text is now centered to give the whole app a more sign board look.
- A number of new transit agencies have been added: the 3 major airport shuttles around NYC, Winston-Salem, Tahoe/Truckee, Escalon, RTC Ride Reno, UC Berkeley shuttle, Big Blue Bus, Glendale Beeline and UCLA shuttle to name just a few.
- Stop lookup headings should all be correct now.
- Rogue Valley Transit District (RVTD) is operational again.
- Removed transit agencies that are no longer supported by the real-time APIs. Notably, the APIs for MARTA and several Atlanta transit agencies have been down since January, 2018.
- Removed alternate stop lookup methods that were no longer functional. This is only a small detriment to the Minneapolis data, where stop lookup results in seeing only one route, but manually entering the stop number gives you all routes stopping at the stop.
This app still remains the #1 app in fastest time to seeing stop predictions on your Apple Watch or iPhone, and now also on iPad.
Ratings and Reviews
Best Nextbus app for Apple Watch, but hard to set up
I live in San Francisco. There are a bunch of Apps that show bus arrival predictions for Muni and other transit systems. Many of them work across the country, not just my area. Several of these have apps for the Apple Watch.
This app is the only one that works well across the country on the Apple Watch and is the only one I use. It's a little complicated to set up your favorite stops, but once you do, the selection screen opens on your watch quickly. You click on a stop and details pop up quickly. A big number at the top counts down the minutes until the next bus. If the stop serves multiple lines you can touch the big number and it will switch to the next line. I leave this screen showing on the watch until the bus is visible so I can raise my wrist at any point and immediately see the big number.
If you scroll down from the big number, you get smaller text showing the details of the next few buses that will arrive at that stop from all lines.
Great app but lacks titles for stops
This is a great and simple app for knowing when your buses arrive at the stop you use the most. However it would be really nice to see a label for the bus stop as opposed to the bus stop number. Having just bus stop numbers makes me have to memorize each of the bus stops I frequent.
This app has always allowed you to set a title and even a subtitle for each stop. It sounds like you just left them blank. Simply edit the stop and type in whatever labels you need to make finding your stops easier.
Excellent. Finally can customize to just my routes
