    I have had this app for quite some time. Recently it has stopped showing how many minutes late or early the route is. That was one of my favourite features. If you could bring that back.....

    Did work well for me, timings were the transits fault and not the apps. However, they stopped supplying information randomly without any notice. Always getting 8888 errors. Hopefully gets fixed because I used this app religiously. EDIT: raised to 3 stars for dev response. Looking forward to getting this fixed.

    First things first. For the buses it DOES have, it is very accurate. However, my one big fat issue is that one of the major orleans buses was changed as of September (I believe) and now this app only has the old bus. So the one bus I use to connect to literally every other bus doesn't exist. Route 134 no longer exists! Please update it!

    I love how information rich this application is. Being able to see what type of bus is coming is great! It lets me determine if I should just wait for the next bus for a more comfortable ride. While this app is not as pretty as the "Transit", it offers a richer experiance. Can't wait to see future updates.

    GPS is an excellent feature as well as letting riders know what type of bus is coming. my only complaint is that at transit centres like Tunney's the schedule for my bus takes so long to load that i have yet to see it work for my commute home. Rather than trying load all busses running through the stop jist load the route requested. otherwise great app!

    When trying to see when the next bus will arrive at a certain stop I often have to refresh 5-6 times for it to stop giving me the message "no trips found at this time" even if there are several buses en route to the stop. Often just using the text messaging tracker is more reliable.

    Update: still has not been fixed. Dropping down to 3 starts. Original: Only problem with this application is when you mark off the bus arrived or not. The "No Show" button doesn't work. I would like to see a patch update to fix that.

    This used to be a good app until the last update :( Now you can only add one favorite stop.. after that you lose the option to add more. I would have paid the $2.99 fee to remove ads but why bother when the app does not work correctly.

    I'd happily give this app 5 stars if you can fix the stop live feeds. Standing at MacKenzie King at 5:30pm and after refreshing 30 times there are still "no trips found". Maps and live GPS updates (when I can see buses at my stop) are the only thing keeping this app on my phone.

  • Poor App Mar 3, 2020

    By Anon Verified Review
    Doesnโ€™t support a dark mode. No contact feature or phone number for OC, and doesnโ€™t shows live updates for outages. OC if you are going to ask for people to rate the app at least make it decent and similar to the Android version.

    App is garbage it keeps going to ' 888 oops retry ' for every route I try. Far better apps for transit. Don't bother.

    I used this for about a month until I missed my bus completely due to it saying the bus was arriving in 3 minutes when it was 3 minutes early. I thought it was using the GPS info, but I'm guessing it doesn't. This was the only purpose I wanted it for, otherwise I would just use the timetable. It often wouldn't load bus stop information and bus times. Would often not display all bus lines that came to the stop. Not intuitive to use.

    This app was okay for me all Summer, I mean sometimes buses just didn't show up at all which made me seriously question the GPS factor, but for the most part it worked. Suddenly in September half of the buses I usually take no longer exist? Apparently Laurier 1A no longer has ANY South going buses, and half the time the app refuses to work at all. I don't know if this is related to the LRT, but I hope it gets fixed soon.

    I used to get GPS time and see where the bus was coming to me but no more. Now it's a toss up if I can rely. Usually not and makes me late for work at least once a week. This is the most unreliable bus system in N.A. by far. 5 times in the past 3 months I have had a bus pass me standing at a stop. And 3 of them looked right at me and drove right by. Disgusting service!!!

    If you have to be somewhere by 9, plan ahead of time to get there by 8. That way you might, if you're lucky, be able to make it to your destination by 9. I bought a monthly pass and in just over a week i had to spend an extra 100 dollars to cab it to where I wanted to go. Had an experience where I waited outside for around 20 mins in -30 weather cause the app was showing the bus is a minute away for the whole 20 mins and then the bus just disappears on the app.

    Previous version was working absolutely fine but after updating this app, it always crashes. I'm not sure if developers are doing anything about it. It was a great app but now its useless. Please fix it as many other are having this same issue.

    This app is useless now. No live gps info. Only scheduled times. And half the time, I don't even get that, I get the "No trips coming at this time" message. I can get that from oc transpo web site. Wish I could leave no stars.

    It does provide GPS times and I like how the map groups stops, but it gets three stars for the following reasons: User interface is difficult to use and not aesthetically pleasing. Favorites is a little clunky to use. No option for trip planning. I recommend busbuddy.
