The many features in this App help tourists and daily commuters find bus stops, obtain accurate and real-time route arrival times. It utilizes GPS, and GTFS data provided by OC Transpo.
Fantastic app. I use it daily without fail on my android phone. The developer is very responsive to questions and requests for improvements. A must have and should win the contest for sure.
Great app, I take OC Transpo daily, and have a variable work day, this app reduces the amount of time I spend at bus stops and allows me to minimize travel time by looking at alternate routes while travelling.
Luv ittt !!!

I use it everyday. Has really changed improved way I use the bus system here in Ottawa, which is the point of this contest after all. The developer is genuinely helpful and deserves to win the prize. Huge fan of this FREE app!
Looks good and useful .. !!
I've been using the free version of the app for about 6 months, it's made such a positive impact on my quality of life that I decided to help support the developer by purchasing the ad-free version for 99 cents.
Have you ever waited in the snow/rain for a bus that's late or worse never showed up ? Never again, with this app I can actually see where my bus is on a street map of Ottawa !! I only leave the comfort of my home or work when the bus is just a few blocks away, allowing me to maximize my productivity and avoid impatience and frustration. No more time wasted waiting for a bus that's off schedule.
Also, the developer responds quickly to questions and regularly issues updated versions of the app with bug fixes and new features.
Keep up the great work Ali, you deserve to win !!
