* iPhone X compatibility for those of you who are lucky enough to get one next month.

Good, but one small thing that REALLY could use fixing


Great app, Love it. Works good for Puget sound region.
Only problem is that Sunday schedules for King County Metro Bus Service are different but not implemented in this app (Shows bus times like a weekday). I tried to bus home late at night after work on a Sunday and the app’s bus times had me thinking I could make it home (when the buses actually stopped running), basically I ended up sleeping outside in the cold, then got a horrible fever...
Small little fix like that could help prevent something like what I put myself through...

Inaccurate but still somewhat useful


This app is useful for getting very rough estimates of when a bus will arrive. The “live tracking” of bus locations is completely inaccurate, however, and often the reported times are very off. So if you want to now if a bus is arriving somewhere near 1:30, for example, then you can look and see, but arrive at least 3 minutes before the scheduled time and expect to wait at least 10 mins after the scheduled time. The bus is almost always later than the app’s timing, but one rare occasions it’ll be early and then you’re screwed.

Tolerated out of necessity


I use Intercity Transit and the times for the buses are frequently inaccurate. I’ve waited at a stop for 10 minutes only for the app to suddenly decide the bus left without me. I opened up the GPS tracker and the bus was less than a minute away, waiting at an intersection. Once the bus started moving again, it refreshed its status back to being a minute away. 🤔

This kind of nonsense is more common than it should be. One Bus Away is still better than nothing, but it isn’t something I can rely on.
