Decent App Decent App that provides information. Real Time data could be better, but may be dependent on backend infrastructure improvements.

Inaccurate This app had steered me wrong several times, it will say a bus is to arrive NOW, then when you refresh it changes to 20min, or it overestimates the time saying the bus will be there in 20 when its really 10, rather use Google maps transit function.

Phenomenal I don't understand why people are saying that this app doesn't work. I've been using it for a month now and it works great. I actually believed the reviews until I tried it for myself. It not only shows you the routes, it tells you in real time exactly when every bus near you and at your stop is arriving. Note: this app is best when used to determine when your bus is arriving. Google is better for planning your trip.

Train ride from TMC to Mainstreet Station 620-645am is always full of TMC employees, and others who hog the seats and lots of homeless people laid out sleeping. Slow when it comes to mass transit. Disappointing transit for a city as large as Houston.
