4/5 stars

Mostly great

For a while, it crashed when I tried to open favorites. However, I deleted it, reinstalled it, and now it works fine.

Great little app. Very useful and accurate. I use it everyday.

My only complaint: I wish it would tell me when it's going by the schedule, rather than GPS. Some buses, like the CT1, don't seem to have GPS tracking. So the app gives it's time for these buses based on the schedule, and I have missed buses because of this. Otherwise, most buses do have GPS, and this app works fabulously for them.

I particularly like how I can save my favorite stops and list them by proximity to me. Very helpful!

5/5 stars

Spot on

This app has made dealing with the Somerville transportation situation much easier. Haven't had an issue with the app yet, and it's great to see where the bus is en route using the Google map overlay. Well worth the fee.

5/5 stars

life saver!

This has changed my life. No longer do I wait stressfully in the cold, wondering if the bus will ever come. Very accurate.
