What's New in Version 4.1.6

NEW: tweaked a thing!!!
NEW: added a gizmo!!!
NEW: fixed a pixel!!!
NEW: okay we admit it there isn’t much in this update except for bug fixes we’re sorry

Except for our lucky lettered line subway riders in NYC... to all y’all good samaritans crowdsourcing your vehicle locations with GO, we’ll now show your monthly + lifetime stats on how many riders you’ve helped. Just tap the big green smiley button in the top left. We’ll also show you what your GO crowdsourcing rank is (!!!) since some of you aren’t happy just being “good samaritans.” You’ve gotta be the best samaritans.

At any rate, that’s all for this update! Thanks for your patience. Enjoy the bug fixes and rate us five stars if you believe in unconditional love.

(And if your love is conditional, please rate us five stars and leave your conditions in the comments.)

Love you always,

Great app

Great app for the terrible 🚌 transit in St. Louis, MO.

updated review:
If I could give this app 10 stars now, I would. A few days ago the real-time data stop working here in St. Louis,MO. I don't know how long it had been out prior to when I found out. I contacted the app developers and a developer by the name of Ms. Thomson responded to my email in less than 24 hours. She fix the real-time in like two days. She is just fantastic! She has great communication skills! This has to be one of the most useful apps I have. Thank you people so much for creating such a helpful app. It makes my 📱worth all the money I spent for it and my commute on the St. Louis crappy 🚌 transit so much better. And 🙏🏾 again to Ms. Thomson.

Works Great ... If You're NOT in NYC

This is one of the worst apps around for anyone trying to use the buses and any of the five boroughs of New York City. The times are always remarkably inaccurate, and when the times are correct, they're always buses going in the opposite direction. I make sure that I choose the proper direction, and when the app says my bus will arrive in three minutes, it does arrive in three minutes, it's just going the opposite way that I am. The times also fluctuate. You can check the app and it'll say your bus will arrive in 10 minutes, five minutes later it says five minutes, then a few minutes later it'll jump up to 27 minutes, then it goes back down to 11 minutes, then back to 18 minutes. Watching the time schedule makes me seasick with all of the ups and downs. Terrible app, absolutely terrible. And I wrote this review in 2016 NOT 2017 and since 2016 it's gotten much worse.

What happened?! ***Update***

I had been using this app every week day for about 2 months. I love being able to know exactly where my bus is. Ever since last Thursday though, it has only been tracking in one direction and the map shows tracking for all busses currently running on the line at the time. It's so confusing. 😫

The problem has been fixed! I'm so happy!! This is the best app for transit, hands down. I have been using another while waiting for the fix. It was just okay. This one here is my friend. Lol! Thank you developers! 😀😎 I have changed my number of stars from 3 to 5.
