The Go-To App for Bus Times
This app uses NextBus to provide it information; NextBus is a national, not Bay Area based, service and is not always accurate; example you could see 10 minutes appear for 10 minutes and there are rarely prediction times for the cable cars. Of note, pretty much all the time-based apps use NextBus. The only other way to get around it is to use an app like MuniWatch (shows the locations of bus routes) as a backup; that app doesn’t show the time.
All that said, the bookmarks have been reliable since the summer and AC transit and Caltrain times have been added. Added bonus: there is now a (?one-minute?) timer that automatically updates the times without us users having to manually hit refresh; that’s been very helpful for me in the morning. I go to this app first and switch to MuniWatch if the bus times keep repeating or if I want to take the cable car (which is included in monthly MUNI pass).
Go to app but can be inaccurate
I use this app every morning to track which bus I should take and what time to leave. It's generally great except I find 10% of the time going to work that it will say that there's nothing for 20 minutes. Sometimes it's right and sometimes it's wrong. The bus ticker is always right and that's my measure of accuracy. And similarly, on my way home it will sometimes say that the bus is arriving but there's no bus in sight.
As a non-native I don't have a sense of whether this app is a huge upgrade to knowing the bus schedule or just can easy way to access the consistency of SF buses. In summary it's helpful but it has glitches.
Best app for getting around the city
Hands down... I don't take the time to write reviews, but for something that gets me where I need to go so consistently and so dependably, I feel like I owe it one. The predicted muni times are more accurate than any other app I've tried, plus it's super intuitive/easy to use. I love the toggle option between the map of each Line and other routes so you can visually see where you are going or redirect yourself when muni has it's special moments we all know and love. Best App for public transportation around SF EVER!!!
