► A to B route finder:
Not sure which bus to take? You say from where, to where and when, let route finder do the rest.
The Route Finder scans the timetables to find direct services between nearby stops and then shows you the best options, with from/to stops, departure and arrival times. Tap an option to show on the map. Easy!

1. Switch on "Track me" to show your progress along a route - useful if you are not familiar with the route.

2. Tap the "disclosure" icon on the map info-bubbles to see more options for a stop (** now including departures for future date/times! **). Try "Long press" on the "Favorites" or "Recent" stop lists too.

4. To get the latest stop update, use the "Refresh" menu item on the map. Alternatively, use "Preferences-> Clear stops" to refresh all stops.

    Very useful app particularly as bus stops round here don't have digital displays. Well worth the subscription fee.

    Very useful, but with limitations. I have a valid "subscription" and installed the app on my new phone. Unfortunately even though I can see my previous subscription in the purchase history, there is no way to re-enable it, only to purchase a new one...

    Great app and the widget itself worth the money for the paid version.
