    This app is so useful and handy. I always know if I'm at the right stop at the right time. Good job for the developers. :))

    I checked the C70 (and double checked it with Translink) and that schedule still shows a half hourly service on Saturday, even though that was discontinued in September 2012. It's now April 2013
