Intuitive to use:

► 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.

Travel information at its very best - never miss another bus!

    I'm not very good at reading bus timetables, find them confusing, so this is an excellent app for me.

    hey, thanks, I've figured that the 'my places' just don't get backed up which I thought they would so I assumed that I wasn't logged in with my purchase sorted. with regard to the feedback the main menu and the 'preferences' menu don't have any options I can see...that's where I'd expect to see it. Thanks for a great app.

    Every time I've tried to use this the returned information has been incorrect.

    Would be a good app but it never recognises that you have paid a subscription so you end up paying for a service you do not receive.
