    Tap departures to show routes and journey times - choose to view on the map or as a list. (Note that this is probably the only app that can differentiate between route alternatives for the same service!)

    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 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!

    Didn't work. Wouldn't find any of the stops I entered to plan a route.

    Used to be good but now doesn't allow route planning. Produces a "no data" error even when data connection is available. Clearing cache makes no difference.
