    I was trying to catch bus Q15A on Roosevelt Ave . I try to find out how long I need to wait for the bus. This app give me the the information I need quickly and accurately
  • Useful APP!

    By Nygirl247
    Love this app especially for express buses from Manhattan to/from Staten Island! Even the bus numbers are indicated. I wonder if it's possible to have two bus lines showing up at the same time on same map? That would make it even better.

    This app doesn't update in real time and is always showing buses about 4-6 blocks different from where they actually are unless you constantly manually refresh. Very frustrating.
  • This app is a lifesaver!

    I moved to New York a month ago and this app has been my saving grace so many times over to find my way around! I don't know how I'd do it without it! Thank you so much for your time and effort creating it. So worth having!
  • Great app

    By Olive200
    This is truly a great app. I couldn't live without it. Amazingly accurate arrival times for buses in Manhattan.
  • Has saved me many times

    By tekperson
    Being able to see where the next bus is gives me options. Otherwise, I'd be stuck freezing and hoping for one.
  • Amazingly useful bus app

    By Mark on the Lower East Side
    If you ever consider taking a NYC bus and care about time, or need to know where a stop is, you need this app. And now that it has real-time bus locations indicated on the map, updated constantly, it's invaluable. I hate guessing whether I should hop a taxi / call a car service to save time, or take a chance waiting for the bus to save money. Now I don't have to guess when the next bus is coming. And the addition of subway lines is wonderful! It has most of the IRT, and some other lines as well. Eagerly awaiting the addition of the F & M for the tricky Essex / Delancey stop here on the Lower East Side.
  • Great!
