This is the one! I tried approximately 50 similar apps from the App Store. In my opinion there was something quirky about each one of them, if they worked at all. This one A. works, B. is simple to use, C. lets you set your own parameters like alarm tone and radius, D. lets you enter your destination via address or tapping on a map, E. Tracks your movement.

Great and simple Great app for bus/train travelers. Do something else while riding the bus w/o the worry of missing a stop. Never miss a stop again from falling aleep. Requests: 1) ability to select multiple locations for multi-stop trips so that there is no need to go back to the app on each transfer 2) search history. It has a history on recently selected locations but not on searches. Would be convenient for planning first time trips. 3) button to focus map on current location 4) closer zoom when opening app

Needs a cancel Maybe a bug, but app keeps going off. No way to cancel but uninstall reinstall. Otherwise works well
