Much like the magic 8ball it can be right on the money or shake shake try another app I think if you use this to compare when busses actually arrive youll see that sometimes this app gets it right Other times youll see busses come up that arent scheduled to be there Route 29 Holla if u hear me       FOR ENTERTAINMENT USE ONLY
This app is awesome No menus or start up screens just the info I need displayed as quickly as possible This is vital for people like myself who are rushing to catch the bus on a daily basis The map layout is fast easy It allows you to mark specific routes if needed and works for metro routes as well What more could you ask                Great Little App
Yep is very convenient loads quickly and is accurate once in a while the stops need to be updated which prevents you from using year which is a little frustratingAnd when posting this the app its down and none of the stops are showing up Other then that its usually workingThe other apps that Ive tried are not as thorough as reliable as this oneBest metro app so far             Best app for metro buss so far
Does this work for ride on bus I dont see any of the stops near my place even though I have the setting for ride on enabled          Ride on
For some reason it doesnt seem to work for many definitely running bus lines at night My other apps detect a bus arriving but not this one I often get no bus detected for certain bus lines Next thing you know a bus shows up Add to this annoyance the fact it asks you to download new stops database every time you open the app and it takes a minute or more and then often fails that operation       Limited usefulness
The nextbus app was awesome but they deleted it    Awful
If you are regular transit user you probably know schedules by rote But if you miss your rude or are irregular user this app is very handy             Handy for Montgomery County residents and commuters
It has not been updated recently so its transit predictions are off so much that it is pretty much useless If you have a 20 minute window then it is helpful but if not it is better to just guess    Used to worknow useless
Love it Im not at the bus stop waiting wondering where the bus is I kno if its late and can leave the house accordingly             Great
I wish you werent a liar Next Bus          I wish you werent a liar Next Bus
Very dependable I use it every day for work                Great App
Doesnt support the bus in the Maryland area       App
Just what I need to quickly get next bus and metro arrival times                Great app
The map is very easy to use and find nearby stops Loads new info when you refresh quickly Lets you save favorite stops and easily see bus routes                Good NextBus Replacement
Just this morning showed three separate buses were coming which never showed up Much less accurate than the old nextbus dc app I find the map format annoying as well You cant search for stops on a certain bus route so its only helpful if you already know where the bus goes          Could be better
Clearly shows bus stops on map with GPS Then which busses are next with estimated wait in minutes Love itStill trouble getting MD Ride On                Awesome MD bus info
Adding bus route mapping and the ability to save favorite stops has bumped this up to a 4 for me The predictions still have problems and there has been a stop with no info for months but the developer explained to me that this data comes straight from wmata That brings me to an important point I have never dealt with a more responsive and responsible developer Not everything is perfect but he worked hard to understand my concerns deal with them and follow up with me on his progress Fantastic and unfortunately rare             Great update
Cool                Cool
No information on any bus or route At all    Went dead as of June 18th for me
When it works it works well Sadly it only works about 60 of the time I get unable to load errors all the time in downtown DC outside with service          Mediocre
WMATA responds sporadically so some stops arent updated             Definitely worth the purchase after update
For the last couple of weeks the app cannot access the main Metro database Hence zero predictions    NextBus NoBus
After the most recent update this app has met every single one of my most wanted features for a Metrobus tracking app In addition to bus routes that are available by selecting a stop and then touching one of the route numbers overlaid on the side of the screen the app now allows you to store favorite bus stops as well Overall usage is intuitive and the ability to check arrival times for stops outside of your immediate vicinity is a huge boon Hint use the last updated button to refresh arrival times or look for bus stops in a different area of the map The app also shows arrival times for Metro trains Ignore the reviews complaining about inaccurate times that is not the apps fault The blame lies with WMATAs crappy info Youd run into the same problems by calling into NextBus since the data source is the same                The best standard for WMATA bus tracking apps
This used to be a great app Was spot on with WMATA buses and about 90 accurate with Ride On buses Now the WMATA buses are rarely accurate and the Ride On buses dont even show up Very disappointed hope they fix it before I decide to delete it Wish I could give it half a star    Used to swear by this app Now not so much
its not accurate at all    completely off
The other reviewers have legit complaints It is difficult and sometimes impossible to get data for a given stop and the route information is not current However the arrival data has been satisfactory It is difficult to know which problems are specific to this app and which are due to the DC Metro system I find the app useful despite these issues          Not bad but frustrating
Great little app that gives you nearby bus information really quickly Great for my commute                Easy to use comes in handy
The basic idea of this app that it pinpoints the bus stop closest to you and shows you the route on a map is ingenious I dont know why all bus route apps dont work this way It is so much faster to use when you at elsewhere in town besides your home and work bus stops Accuracy of the arrival data is as good as it can be considering the shoddiness of WMATAs NextBus predictions Let us all hope one day WMATA moves to real time bus tracking so we dont have to wait for a bus that doesnt come                Maps rather than lists are a lifesaver
So much easier to use than wmata website Shows stops in map layout so easy to find stops Shows all upcoming buses at that stop regardless of line Also displays the full tour on the map to easily help you plan a trip Great app                Fantastic
Runs better than the other lite next bus by leaps and bounds             Pretty reliable
This app is useful but every time I open it up it tells me I need to update the stops This takes almost a minute each time Not practical and very annoying for someone who is in a hurry          Too many updates
Last year I downloaded this app and it was great but after several updates it keeps getting worse the times are never right anymore       Used to be good
Requires constant updates Some stops never show up Accurate as far as buses but a pain to maintain          Lots of updating
Never accurate Not worth the money I miss the old NextBus app    Awful
I like this app a lot but routes are off L2 and lots of stops dont work Conn L northbound and Conn 17th Northbound             Thanks for stop update but
Sure it SHOWS the location of bus stops Thats great and all but what if Im trying to get from one place to another Im just trying to figure out which buses to take and where to transfer It takes forever trying to scroll throughout the map finding the locations I dont understand why this app cant offer simple directions for getting from Point A to Point B       Does exactly what it says
It used to be the best app on the market for wmata now its worthless If youre using this during rush hour prepare to either miss a bus or wait for a half an hour Pathetic       Waste of Space
This app is ALWAYS right on with bus and metro arrivals I like how you pull up the times in the map screen instead of having to go to a separate screen altogether Great app                Best bus app
Sorry but a disappointing app    The app always says connection problem
This is now basically a digital bus schedule It tells you when then buses are supposed to be there with no connection to reality Lame    Used to be accurate not anymore
This is a pretty good app overall The bus timing seems accurate and the stations are clearly marked Being able to select a route and highlight it on the map is fantastic and something I desperately want in the Metro app Including it differentiates this appHowever the Ride On buses seem nonexistent Even once you turn them on in settings they dont show up This is unfortunate as I was really looking for an app that can handle the Ride On buses smoothlyFinally theres no option to search by station or by route If that was included this would be by far the best DC area bus app          Pretty good but where is Ride On
It used to work pretty well I f you knew where youre going know the bus system BUT the new upgrade is awful Every stop indicates no bus nearby even as Im getting on the bus Unbelievable DO NOT DO THE UPGRADE    Needs work just like Metro
I just had to stop using this app today It served me well for a while but now just cant seem to display the right times or sometimes a time will be displayed then disappear Will definitely use this again if they can fix it but until that time ill be using another app       Good for a time
Now that the NextBus lite app is dead I find myself having to use this inaccurate frustrating app No maps either I hope nextbus comes back even though that wasnt perfect either       Variable results
New version no longer has bus schedules It just says no nearby busses for all buses Please fix    NO BUS SCHEDULES
This app used to be great but for the last month it hasnt been accurate at all Hopefully theres a helpful update soon       Used to work well
It used to work fine but the redesigned app is useless It only shows stops within a block or so of where I am so I cant get info to help me decide which stop will be better for me Cant find a way to favorite multiple route so that I can tap that to look at the two routes I want and decide which to take Hate it    Useless
Like this one compared to the other ones interface is awesome One suggestion though manual refresh button lacking But love it anyway going to get the paid one once manual update is included                Works Great
Dont buy this application most if the bus stops I tried to check for next bus dont work I tried to get my money back and there is no way to get it back I dont know how apple after Jobs allows these junk apps to be placed in the AppStore    Waste of Money garbage
The arrival times for my bus stops are wrong about 90 of the time Didnt have this problem before the latest update       Timing is off
