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.

Can't even find a route It can't even find a route schedule for a local bus from Place D'orleans and the autofiller for the addresses is glitched. It'll auto fill with a short form of the address and the planner can't find anything with the auto filled short form. (Ex: Places D'orleans)

I updated to the new version hoping it was an improvement over the last update and a return to the previous update as I Do not like all the dead space, i liked the older version ( 2 versions ago) much much better. black n white or color I don't care just really not liking all the dead space, I like to see as many of my favorites as possible not as few as possible. Fix this and I'll give it 4 stars again possibly 5

Handy Use this daily and like how easy it is. In fact, I don't bother to memorize schedules anymore, however, that means when it's not working I feel a little stranded though!
