Love it; works perfectly.
Great app. It's precise.
The DC metro and bus app works well. I really like the favorites option; you can delete a favorite from your list by holding down on that particular stop and a prompt will appear asking you to confirm that your delete.
I haven't been able to find an easy to use and reliable app to track DC buses. This app has it all. Even metro. It's a one stop shop. I would highly recommend it.
An indispensable tool that works about 90% of the time (sometimes schedules don't appear, but that's usually late at night).
I like creating favorites and monitoring different bus routes. I wish there was a way to remove a favorite. My list is cluttered. I also wish the map feature worked better. It doesn't really even open for me.
I like this app. Pretty stable and accurate right up to the minute.
This is an essential app for DC Metro riders.
App is better than other apps I've downloaded regarding public transport in the DC metro area. It's comprehensive, easy to use, and has a nice and simple main menu.
Works great most of the time, but error notice are common and annoying.
Like the app. Great for bus information but some issues with subway data.
A very good app. Great bus/subway information
It helps when you need to check the schedule :)
Which is only mediocre, at the end of the day.
False train times!
Aside from always being incredibly slow (I've missed buses over the two or three minutes it can take to navigate through three screens and see their content), it suddenly seems to have no info. The "nearby" and "favorites" settings still work, but there is no way to search for a route or stop unless you have its ID#. It doesn't even know the route destinations anymore! Done with this bull - it's easier to use the awful wmata website on safari than to use this.
Service is inconsistent and unreliable. For my route 23A anyway.
I use the app regularly; it's functional, though visually not attractive at all. One star for nagging me about rating it.
Says ARRIVING for my bus stop and I wait 3-5 more minutes...tried another app simultaneously and the other one is accurate, so the problem is with this app not the bus system.
Worst ever! Never works. Never shows real times. Always late.
App reported n3 bus would arrive @ Westmoreland Circle in 24 minutes. Walked away only to see the bus arriving one minute later.
The Metro Alerts tab is not in time with current delays or other notices. It would be nice if the alerts would appear with a date and time - not just the message - so users are aware of the most up-to-date situations.
The app in theory should be helpful especially since I use public transportation 90% of the time to get around. However the bus arrival times in the app is always wrong. It is NOT helpful to see that a bus is arriving in 8 minutes when it says at that time (8 minutes) for 5 minutes. Therefore the wait is actually 13 minutes and I'm just wasting my time by planning my commute around an incorrect time, which is way too often.
Try to find the next train at Vienna. 99% of the time I try it has No Data Found. Try to find what Metro station is closest to a certain location. No where to be found. Don't waste you're time on this app. Trying to catch a Green Line train. Planned arrival using the next train showing in this app. Got on the platform and that train disappeared. This App is AWFUL.
Useful program ever
I use this app every day, morning and evening. I rely on it more than any of my other apps. Don't waste time at the bus stop or underground in the subway when you can get real-time arrival listings. The bus feature is the most useful, choose your stop and it tells you all the buses passing that stop. This is great for me, as there are four nearby buses from work that take me straight home. Only con: every now and then the app will tell you a bus is on the route and it's not, so you'll be waiting for a no show, but this actually hasn't happened in a long time that I can recall. Nevertheless, full disclosure. That said, I stand by this app. Get it and you will too!!
Few too many error messages and often it won't find my requested stop, which is odd since it gave me that stop as an option in the first place. But the convenience of knowing when a bus is coming (give or take a couple minutes) is still better than standing at the stop and just wondering.
This is a good app most of time! It would be great if not for the errors! It is an app that I live by and even it you can't see your bus you can at least look up the schedule to help yourself.
It would be better if it included more of the functionality of the website: especially trip planner or NextBus.
I use it all the time. Very handy
This app help me out all the time
Great app. Very accurate on arrivals - I know if I can have that extra sip of coffee or if I need to run for it...
An update is needed to correct the many errors and application crashes. Up until today I have been relatively pleased with the app but this morning I had to run for the bus relying on the app to function. None of my favorites are currently running. I continue to receive error messages.
The idea is fantastic, too bad it's always having processing errors.
Helps me determine how to get home easily at night with several bus options. Very easy to use and setting favorites is a great option to quickly assess the options.
Good functionality, and nice that it does both rail and bus. The biggest flaw is with the NextBus system itself, which often doesn't show buses, and shows wacky results near the start if routes.
The app does what it does alright, but only for those who are already distinctly aware of the bus lines, where they go, and how they intersect. Nonetheless, so long as routes are heavily researched beforehand, the app is invaluable.
Locations are not available or disappear after the program is launched. Map function is not operational.
Some times the schedule of bus doesn't show proper. But over all it is pretty much fine.
It's an really good app. I use it everyday when I go to work because I mostly catch the bus. It's pretty accurate.
Doesn't work consistently enough minor bugs that need to be fixed but overall a descent app
Most of the time it's accurate but the one out of ten when its not ...
I use this daily. Great app.
Very helpful 99% of the time saves time too
Nice app. Wish it showed closest station to a tourist location. For example, which station to get down to go to Lincoln memorial or spy museum.
