BrisDroid is designed to help you get where you need to go using public transport in Brisbane, Australia. Using Google Maps and GPS assistance, it's easier than ever before to know exactly where your stop is and how long you have until you get there. BrisDroid works with all bus, train and ferry routes in Brisbane and surrounding areas. It's a journey planning app with all the public transport routes, in your pocket.

Things you can do with BrisDroid:
* See exactly where every stop is using Google Maps
* Receive a notification when your stop is approaching
* Use the same journey planner you're already familiar with
* Use your current location to find the closest stop near you
* Use addresses taken straight from your contacts
* Save and load your favourite locations with ease
* Get direct links to useful pages on the TransLink website
* Works similar to Google Transit, but for public transport in Brisbane!

We're constantly striving to make BrisDroid bigger, better and easier to use: if you have any feedback what-so-ever, including bug reports or feature requests, feel free to email us at info@brisdroid.com.

BrisDroid uses a number of a different sources for stop location information, including the following:
* Bus stops: http://data.brisbane.qld.gov.au/index.php/dataset/bus-stops/
* Ferry terminals: http://data.brisbane.qld.gov.au/index.php/dataset/ferry-terminals/

Our data is not always 100% accurate: if you come across a stop that's in the wrong location or missing entirely, feel free to let us know by either reporting it in-app or sending us an email.

    I use this hourly - on the toilet, on the phone, both - I can't get enough of it! I sometimes like to think I'm dating it, like Raj dated Siri. One day I am going to get the logo tattooed onto my face, my stomach, my bum, my back and my liver! Thank you,

    ...and it's never, ever let me down. The best, most stable and user-friendly app I've ever encountered of it's kind. My only gripe is for an improved address-handling/searching system. Other than that, 5 stars without a doubt!

    Map is a bit laggy, but everything else is great!

    Basically same as everyone else. I only use it if I'm catching a bus to a place I haven't been. Definitely worth supporting dev if you live in Brisbane even if you only use the bus a couple times a year.
