The Ride CATS app provides a GPS system that allows you to see where you are standing relative to the closest bus stop. It would also have you believe that it tracks the buses via GPS, so that you know exactly where the next bus is. However, that is not the case.

It gives you an estimate based on where the bus SHOULD be, and it leaves GPS pins at the stops where the buses are meant to be at the time, based on the schedule of the day. However, should a bus be running late (which is often) the information automatically becomes useless.

My first use of this app had me waiting an extra fifteen minutes for my bus to reach me, after the app stated that the bus had already passed my stop.

The CATS drivers are fantastic, or at least most of the ones I've encountered. I know many by name, as I use the bus anywhere from 2 to 6 times a day. But the HQ's customer service is nonexistent, and when it does exist, is downright disorderly. CATS needs to up their game.

Not Perfect, but helpful

I have been riding the 62x and now the 20 bus for almost 20 years. And there have been plenty of 20 degree mornings when I had no idea when the bus was coming. So the app in its present form is a godsend to me. One person's non-intuitive mess is another's piece of cake. I figured it out the first day.
Is it perfect? No. Is it a lot better than no app if you're a bus rider? Absolutely.

Fix it!

This hasn't worked correctly since Feb 2014. And complaining to CATS via email or their website doesn't do a thing. Horrible customer service, CATS!
Update: received a message they were looking into it, but 6 weeks later still broken. Wish I could give zero stars for app and service!
Updated: new app has potential but still useless as is. The GPS arrival is never correct if bus is late.
Still horrible! You can’t even find a bus stop schedule if you don’t know the exact name of the stop
