    I used to be able to save favourite bus stops but they all disappeared and I can no longer save to favourites with this app.

    Actually it beats most travel apps for Edinburgh or other cities. It does what you need simply and efficiently, and it's the app I can't do without. We've not only got an award winning bus service but this excellent app makes living in Edinburgh even easi

    I've been using this app for as long as it's been available and would be lost without it. My only gripe is there is no Home button so navigation is not as great as it could be.

    Only way this could be improved is adding a filter for service numbers. Otherwise great.
