Its good Im back to using the bus and ive used this before. However, i hope you could also add a feature like the one in google where it can help you to determine which bus stop and transfers etc to take to go to a certain place especially for the newcomers.. and for people like me who's not that familiar bussing..:)

Impressed but it can be better I use this app frequently and I am very happy of how accurate it has been. The only thing I wish it had was a way to organize the saved stops. Maybe an edit or drag and drop function? An addition like this would be greatly appreciated.

Good, but... Why do only ~10 stops show on the map? I'm trying to use the map because I only have a general idea of where a stop may be in the area, but the map is completely useless unless you want times for a stop right next you. If I wanted those stops, I wouldn't use the map at all, as they're listed on the main screen already... Also, about ads, that's a shame. Why not have a 99¢ in-app-purchase to remove them? I use Adblock and will never see your ads anyway, but that also means I won't provide a penny of income.

Ads? Say it ain't so! Could you not make a free version with ads, and a paid version without? I'd rather pay than have bandwidth and battery drained!

Amazing app if you have to take the bus I'm laid off plus I have access to a vehicle now, but I recently used this app for 3 years. It was a lifesaver for me, so I'll gladly donate. Thanks for a great app.
