I would like to apologize for all users who were affected yesterday by the service outage. The live transit API that is hosted by OC Transpo has been down, and is still down, which caused all transit apps that relay on it to stop working. I had to change a few things in the app to make it work again despite their API issue. Thank you for your support and patience :)

✓ Fixed API issue (thanks to @thundernode)

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.

What happened? This app was great for a while and just recently it just keeps saying "no routes available at this time." not displaying any information. Kind of defeats the purpose of having the app. Very disappointed. Hopefully it can be fixed. In the meantime I will have to find another app to use.

Great app. No longer missing bus. Although it is getting some bad press at the moment because of OC Transpo, I have come to rely on this app to get to work on time. It has been super reliable and easy to use.

Good app Due to OC transpo the app was not working. I rely on this while going home and it hasn't let me down since. So if it seems that there are no busses running blame OC not the app. Thanks to the developer for the quick reply.
