Awesome, by far one of the most useful transit apps for peggers This is app is essential. So far the only app that actually tells you that a bus is late and how far (approx) it is away. Trip planner would be nice and a design refresh would be good too :)

Limited options, no destination searches, inadequate for needs. Google maps much more user friendly.
