User reviews of Ottawa Transit
Wasn't able to install the app on my Huawei u8100. Cheap phone, might be because of the smaller screen resolution? Anyway, would probably work fine.

Ok when it works The app is improving. But still missing key elements AND consistency in its functioning. I like it when it's working.
