Restores sanity to riding Muni
First learned about this app through a class at the Apple Store about five years ago (the Apple Genius said it was his personal favorite) and have been using it ever since. I'm from a time when there was no such thing as apps or Muni updates so this is like a particular luxury for me. :-D
One particular quirk, which is a good one, is that sometimes it will predict the next bus -- in my case, the 10 Townsend or 12 Folsom going toward Potrero Hill, or the 31BX going toward the Richmond -- as "30 minutes" (the 10 or the 12) or "No bus currently predicted" (the 31BX, especially bad news at the end of the schedule when there *should be at least one more bus).
You put down your phone in frustration, cursing Muni internally as well as (politely) out loud. People around you are leaving in droves. Suddenly you're the only one left at the stop. And then your bus shows up a few minutes later! This has happened enough times for me to count on it, even though I know I shouldn't. (In the case of the 31BX, it doesn't always and I *am left high and dry, but at least there are plenty of other buses to take) Really glad to have this app.
The go-to transit app
I've been using Routesy for years, and always recommend it to friends. I love the bookmark feature, since I take quite a handful of buses/muni trains. I also love the simpler and thoughtful features of show me alternative muni lines going in the same general direction, as well as showing me the closest bus/muni in my bookmarks.
It's one of the most used apps in my phone!
Don't know what I'd do without it!
I don't live in SF but need to work there periodically. Navigating public transportation can be challenging even if you're a local but for someone like me, very complicated. My friend told me about this app and it was my lifesaver recently. Great idea, great help, and an App I also noticed my fellow travelers using. This should become a must-have. I'll spread the word - use this!!
