    It gives times, but they are terribly off. Today, I was waiting for a bus that said it will come in 10 minutes, I had to sit at the stop another 20. And the same thing happened 18 times before. Thanks for the infinite prank app Calgary.

    It isn't the worst but many of the times are totally off. Several times the bus hasn't even shown up. It'll say the bus arrived and will show when the next one arrive despite the first one not showing up.

    This app needs a lot of fixing. The main display that shows all nearby routes is missing routes all the time. For example, at SAIT Station, it'll show the eastbound Max, but not westbound. This has been ongoing since I first started using the app, so I'm not sure if the app is doing something wrong, or if Transit's API is sending incorrect information. Either way, it makes that screen useless. Like the OP said, half the time it tells me there's a bus in five minutes. I leave where I am, and watch for the bus as I walk to the stop. Five minutes goes by and no bus. No big deal at rush hour, but when you're in an area that's not well-served during the day, it can be half a hour. Sundays are even worse! I'm not sure if I have the new version or not, but I've never been able to notice any real-time information in the map. Since most of the icons don't represent anything to me, I'm never sure what half of them do. Yes I can play around, but there's something to be said for real documentation, sadly something programmers seem to completely skip over these days. This app has three main things it's supposed to do and since it does none of them really well, it gets a low score.

    Next bus times are fairly accurate, and the GPS tracking to see the current location of upcoming buses (sometimes in real time) is very handy. My only big complaint: the GPS map and trip planning features only work over wifi. Usually when I want to use these features I'm out and about and relying on cellular data, which they don't seem to be compatible with for whatever reason. If there is a way to fix this issue I'd love to hear it!

    When working well it is the best, however more recently there have been many issues with the live accurate readings. Have had numerous times not have the current bus show up and this has forced me to make alternate plans. Yet when you call the phone number with the bus stop, this information is perfect. Has been a more recent thing where this accuracy is not perfect. I wondered if I needed an update on the app? But it appears to be current.

    Best city travel app I've found. Easy to use and seems accurate. Now if I could just tweak it so I could get on & off at my door.

    Could show the names of the places, as on Google maps. It's a good app.

    This app USED to be amazing! I dont have a data plan on my phone. Which never used to matter cuz the app still worked! Now with this recent update, Im deleting this useless thing and downloading something new! You open the app it takes forever just to pop up your location. I click the route I want and nothing happens or its takes as long as it does for the next bus to show up to function properly??? If it wasnt broke, why in the hell did you *fix* it??? This was great now its pointless& useless!

    Works great until it crashes. Yesterday it worked fine, today it crashes when I try to plan a route or do anything really. Please fix this!!!

    Way to go, you take the "plan a trip" function off your website which worked fantastic by the way, and you piggy back on an app I've had on my phone for yrs. Shameful, hijack an app and put ur name on it. I will never use this app, cuz I already have the original and it's garbage. Calgary Transit.. letting u down ALL THE TIME!!

  • Not at all what I expected Dec 10, 2019

    By nickname kimmba
    This app is not user friendly at all. As a New citizen of Calgary Would expect list of bus schedules, etc. Not just real time info! Plus can never get back to main screen (assuming there is one) CT, you could do much better!
  • Does not show train delays Jan 16, 2018

    By M Calgary
    Consistently shows service as normal during ongoing delays announced at the platform and on Twitter. This completely erodes confidence that a train or bus will arrive when the app says.

    What a garbage app. Everytime I got the details set for load the app would close n I lost everything. Just a terrible experience n app. Shame you can't give 0 stars

    This app is real source of frustration. During bad weather it will constantly shovel out inaccurate information. I have waited hours for busses that never showed up the whole it tells me one is coming. Even counts down 10 minutes 5 minutes 2 minutes and nothing back up to 25 minutes. Ask it to track the bus a sure it will tell you where your bus is stuck but still says one is coming real soon and keep counting down. Works fine on a sunny day in June but in January its trash.

    App used to be great. Ever since the latest update, it freezes, crashes, and skips you over to other lines you're not even on when using the GO feature. Real time busses do not match times in app. Going back to Google Maps.
  • Nov 19, 2019

    By Kimberly Elliott
    While it usually works fine, there are too many instances of this app not working properly for me to give it more than 2 stars. Just now, for instance, it said my bus was 45 minutes away. Considering it's a weekday morning, this is highly unlikely. I called the Teleride number and it said 6 minutes. This happens all. the. time. And it's ridiculous. Considering this app is not new, it's high time Calgary Transit got a different developer.

    pros; quick and easy to look up a to b. It seems as time goes on this app is getting worse. In the early days it was very easy to look up a stop and view the schedule for that stop. Now the option doesn't exist. Sure you can see a schedule but not the past schedule and not more then a couple times. I would like to see the simple functionality back of viewing a complete days schedule for a stop picked on the map. Speaking of simple. I don't have the latest and greatest phone. end post 500 limit

    There is a very obvious critical flaw in the current build. The upcoming bus times ignore the next bus. So if the next bus is in 10 minutes, and the one after that 40 minutes from now, it says next bus in 40 minutes. The only way (through the app) to find the actual schedules, is to look at the next days bus. I've had this app since the beginning, and it's just gotten worse and worse. I only updated because I was forced to due to crashing. I hate this new UI. Less immediately available info.

    By Jerrica Gilmore
    Perfect app, the only problem is, there is a bug an changes the bus times, to longer wait periods an has messed me up with my schedule, to get to work, and it says the bus isnt running but when i close the app and reopen it, it resumes its services, so please fix that as soon as possible as I rely on you guys to get to work on time, but cant because of bad bus times,or it saying the service has ended when it hasnt! , but before all this it is a very accurate app

    None of it makes sense. The live updates are terrible and seldom even close to accurate. If you can't implement a system properly, why implement it at all? I use the bus daily to get to and from work. The system will tell me that my next bus is in 30+ minutes (despite them running every 15-25 minutes??). I ignore the terrible system and just wait at the stop. Lo and behold, a bus shows up in 5-10 minutes. Those buses are ghosts according to this app. Non-existent. Ethereal. Incredibly bad.
  • Jun 15, 2019

    By Laura Tatoiu
    This is one of the worst apps if you need d to figure out how long a bus will be till its there. This app will say 15 minutes, then it will go all the way up to 45 minutes. The bus will arrive somewhere between thoes times. Calgary transit itself is stupid, but this app takes the cake. Someone needs to fix this app, and the actual bus system :)
