    I have had this app for a year, and nothing has changed to try and make it work. The Next Bus feature doesn't work, the tracker doesn't refresh, and it constantly freezes on my galaxy s7. Have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, and have had it on automatic updates. Needs some love, but only seems to be the redheaded step child of RFTA

    Over the past few years we've talked with community members about what they'd really like in an App for Valley residents, businesses and visitors and the popular question is: Where is my Bus? and Where is the nearest bus stop - (for visitors from other towns).. The app presents all the bus information stored by distance from you, and then by arrival times, if there are arrivals. One of the widely listened to stations in the area is KDNK in Carbondale, providing residents with an opportunity to be DJs, news gatherers, and part of the station. There's a KDNK steam so you can take Smart Rider with you anywhere, and listen in to news, music, anywhere you go. Every few months we review community comments to add favorite media sources. RFTA's Facebook Feed, Twitter posts are a click away in the Smart Rider app, so you can stay informed on last-minute posts. WeCycle news, a great way to see even more once your bus arrives, has a tab as well. Enjoy and please let me know how you like it, the features you like best, and what you'd like me to add..

    this is a huge app for what i wanted. just bus times. the other 20mb is garbage. the layout is "easy" but you still have to know exactly what bus you want. would be nice if it used GPS to find my closest bus stops and tell me what bus will go by there rather than having to search 1by1 through schedules that don't make sense. I rode the L Snowmass bus, but according to this, there is no L bus, so w

    One of my go-to apps! Stopped working after upgrade to Lollipop 5.0.1 on HTC One M8.Tried uninstall/reinstall, failed to open. Back to 5* when fixed. Dev replied after binary update; I reinstalled & it's working again!

    The only reason I will use such app is to get up to the minute information about the location of the bus that I am interested in catching.The trick here is to quickly select bus stop.Use the phone's GPS and I can select the bus stop I need.Alternatively, give each bus stop a unique 3 digit number that can be quickly entered in the initial screen.Then you can show me the arrival time for each bus.T
