Next Bus and Route Maps features use data supplied by Traveline. We always try to provide as accurate and detailed route and service information as we possibly can but sometimes this can be affected by the data available to us. If you notice anything missing, or would like to suggest an improvement, please let us know using the link;

To see a full list of the areas where live real time, next bus information is available please visit;

Route maps:
The red line representing the route between bus stops is generated automatically and may occasionally deviate from the actual route taken. As routing technology improves we’ll provide updates.

Before reporting errors we would recommend you uninstall and reinstall the App. As with most general IT problems, turning it ‘on and off again’ can cure most general issues. If this doesn’t work, please contact us; we’ll be happy to help.

    Doesn't work when you need it to. Grumpy bus drivers won't wait for glitchy app

    I'm not a fan of all the new changes. When I first installed this app the timetables told me what time the bus was due, now it tells me how many minutes til it's due. Which is completely useless. How am I supposed to know if this is correct? Wouldn't it be easier to just say what time the bus is due? Apart from that the app is fine but I strongly hate the new timetable,please change it back.

    Traveling on public holidays? Awesome, because I can't choose any other travel time! App not working just like the sorry state of the bus service itself... I'm sure First will assure me they're improving service right now :/

    Worked like a charm for first few weeks, suddenely decided to stop working, wont find a gps fix, no timetables, seems like it cant connect. Tried uninstalling and getting again but same results. We need a working update asap as this WAS an invaluable app!
