Very helpful It helps me get to school on time. Without its, i honestly don't know how i could get to school on time. My punctuality has been bad this year, but when I installed this app, there's been a transformation in my punctuality.

Shehz Bond

Enjoying it Brilliant it's very reliable, they just need to make the layout and style a bit better and a little easier . But brilliant I use it every day!!

Elin Pettersson

Very good but... Doesn't handle updates/maintenance very well. Had to uninstall and reinstall, which is a bit annoying. Other than that a very good app that shows the bus arrivals very accurately

snowy river

Awful since the update Worked great until the update. Now it is very slow, tells me there is no internet access (when there is!), periodically wipes out "my stops" list which means I have to search again, automatically filters routes which is pain whem one needs the choice. Unfiltering the routes causes it to slow down or crash. There is a saying....if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Certainly applies here! Will be finding another app.....shame, this used to be perfect.

Elle Lell

Accurate Not the best coverage as doesn't have all bus stops but when it does have the bus stop in sought it never fails.

Random Account

Takes its time... This used to be a real great fast app, now it takes ages to load. The bus has arrived before its given you any information!

Kofi Donkoh

Temperamental on S4 App is ok 65% of the time but for some reason can be slow? Buggy, in app ads look like malware you'd find on a bad streaming site and resets your saved buses & routes randomly

Sharmista Appaya

Not very good Doesn't pick up local bus stops. Don't really like the interface

Jose Paul

Amazing app. I have been using this for over a year. Simple to use. Fast. Straightforward. No gps. No bs. Direct to the point. No ambiguity. No unnecessary features. This is how apps need to be. Nice one!

John Ejiogu

Very helpful app This is great with the exact time and quick without buffing. I really like and hope you would too.

Anne Burman

Tried it out And it was very good. Much simpler than the previous app i used( Bus Guru) which was complicated to set up. This just finds your nearest bus stop and tells you how long you have before you need to get your running shoes on!

Shereen Harrison

Good travel Able to help me time where I wanna go & how long I have to wait so I'm not left standing the for 20 odd minutes, great help

Christine Russell

Why can't I save stops anymore? I've reinstalled after accidentally uninstalling but now can't save any stops! Without this the app becomes less easy to use! Please update.

Amy Primrose

Perfectly accurate This app has never let me down. I wouldn't survive London without it. Defos a winner when you're getting ready for work in the morning. The buses never run to their timetable! This app is a must :)

michael Jonas

The best It's so reliable I can stay wherever until the time is getting closer no more standing in the cold waiting for the bus.

samykamal matar

Thank you to tfl this bus traval made my life very easy so thanks to london travsl

Emmanuel Meyer

Ok but could be better Does not provide expected time of travel throughout the line once a bus is selected

Shakirudeen Alade

An Apps to take with you every where in London I love it! Simple to use and fun to have.

Shalini Maran

Its the best.... I have used this and this is accurate and it is useful....its better than anything

Bosede Owa

This makes it much easier to plan my journeys from home and not spending the whole day at the bus stop.

Francis Kamin

Good app!!! Good accuracy, buses turn up when expected!! So far so good

philip williams

Curates egg! Its fine when you get reception! This makes it of limited use .. Can i use it here is always the question. Why not instal repeaters at stops/ shelters? So any TfL stop at least gives access to this ap

zhenya amoo-gottfried

It's really good but it only works with Internet so u can't use it out side so u won't no when the bus is coming but other than that it's fine ?☺

gman mc

Bus time table Very good app have not missed a bus yet : )

Antonio Masiello

Just does not work It works only if you have the postcode otherwise the app does not detect your position

douggiddings bis

Great app WELL DONE. Great piece of software, if be cold and lonely at a standinng at bus stops great stuff programmers and TFL

nia morgan

Great you can see when your bus is coming even without knowing the bus stop name

Jack Bones

Waste of time and expectations So there I am at the bus stop, the bus still hasn't arrived so I whip out me phone coz I have this app installed. Pfffff actually this app is usless unless you subscribe to BT wifi for a fee of course. Bus did eventually come along...moral to this episode is, be patient coz the bus will come alpng and you will realise this app is a waste of time and expectations ;?/

Ama Henry

I hv nt used this app much but so far so good. I hv nt had any problems with it at all. I hv hd accurate information so far.

Paola T

It would be quite good... ..if it didn't always say my location could not be found, every time I ask it to show me the bus stops near me. I have enabled GPS and location access, and the app still won't recognize my location. Pls fix.

Emma Morris

Love it use it every day. Don't no what I would do without it

Rene Chang

Bus countdown Excellent. You just have to enter your postcode and everything is ther

Sir Frund Poc

Very helpful Helpful even though the list of stops at times is so small it is impossible to click on the right one

Mandy Bailey

Excellent! Use it ALL THE TIME really accurate with arrival times.

Walter Braga

Support I wanna support this app, it's really good! Well done!

Sam Nyanzi

♥♡ I love this app so much trust me xxx the time and everything God thanks that I have this app ♥♥

Mirek Molik

Good app Unfortunately the option bus stops near me doesn't work on my phone and the app works really sloooow!

yewule Anakuya

Yewule Excellent app. It's work perfectly great advance technology from tfl well done

Mfon Etuk

Real clever apps My era of waiting too long for a bus is all over. All buses are in real time. Thanks a million.

chris leach

Very Useful I find it useful to find out when my is due. Especially when I due to take over it!

Serg K

It didn't work It doesn't work for me.

f r

Bus app review This app is 99% reliable. My partner has another one but the timings are misleading. This app is reliable down to 30 seconds on all the different bus routes I have used it on. The trick is to check it roughly 20 mins before leaving your location.

Diane Ofori

It's an okay app; but I hate the fact it does not use GPS to locate whereabouts and you have to give street name, postcode. There has been times when I don't know

Edward McKintosh

Really useful Accurate, quick and helpful (looks a bit clunky but works fine).

Godiva Aidoo

Good I like it. It helps me.... But I always have to use my mobile data which annoys me. Plz make the bus times available anywhere with no Wi-Fi. ?

Ms Qt cute

Wish I could save more than the last 5!! Brilliant App would like to have at least 10 stops saved though not just the last 5 on the first page

Yael Carciente

Really helpful This app helped me a lot, now I can catch my bus on time!!

Shannon Mead

Holiday made easy Used this app to make our way around the city on our holidays, always found the right bus and when it was due!

Robert Harvey

An essential app for Londoners Easy to use. Build up a list of your regular stops and bus information is just a link away. Remember to refresh the listing every couple of minutes. The app gives live information so it is also volatile data. A bus that was first reported as 10 minute's away can arrive much earlier than you think.

Steph S

Very useful! Often use this app to get the bus on time. It also means I don't have to wait unnecessary in the cold waiting at the bus stop near my house & can go out when the bus is close to its arrival! Very useful.

Karl Grey

Location doesn't work? Show stops near me doesn't do what it says; pressing the button does nothing. Unless you know the postcode of where you are it's no help.

Kristine Sergejeva

Very often have trouble Often it just doesn't show anything, goes blank.

Dan Greenwald

Sweet and simple. Works nicely. Not many features but best countdown app I've found.

Kashif Husain

Infuriating. Inaccuarate. Google maps is better. This app has actually made many of my journeys longer by providing inaccurate information. Like telling me the bus I want isn't coming for 14 minutes so I change routes, and hence bus stop, only to see the first bus glide past moments later while the second bus pulls a disappearing act.

Tom Kell

Just the TFL website No effort whatsoever made, literally just the TFL website while the 'developer' creams off banner ad revenue. Insulting to actual app developers who make apps with really nice interfaces. Try Citymapper or Live London Bus Tracker which have really nice interfaces and the same data.

Jane Lee

It's alright Sometimes it says the bus stops are closed when they are not and it makes it difficult to guess when the bus is coming also it doesn't show if a bus is early or late which would be handy, and it won't show stops around you unless you have a post code and it says there are no buses for 30 mums name done comes in 5?!

Rosie Cheeks

Great Time Saver! Helped me during tube strike got to the bus stops in time

Daniel Carter

Worst app ever. Worst app ever. Smashed my phone beccause of it. Nottt recommended. Don't waste your time.

Uzo Hewitt

Good app Certainly helps with organising my more time wasting at bus stops...Unfortunately app goes down a lot in certain areas.


Its alright, however... At first though this app was free meaning when you search a bus's time it wouldnt need to charge you. However, recently I realised I'm loss money.

A Google User

Unstable, int GPS, small buttons Appears to have become unstable - not seeing data or wi-fi and closing. Sometimes not opening at-all. Now seems also to be unable to use GPS location. Web-page type "buttons" difficult to use on small device. Will reload & try again. Reloaded - still refuses to use GPS, which functions Ok on other Apps.

Carol Robertson

Instead of waiting at the bus stop not knowing what time the bus is coming I can leave home or wherever I am and get the bus straight away. Especially good at night.

Frank Goodwill

Does what it says on the tin Very useful little app that works well for me. Also it doesn't ask for loads of permissions to access my stuff.

Af Mo

Af mo Very good app. Can get better. I use it almost everyday. Very pleased with it. Apart from the annoying adds.

Angela Pinnock

FAB!!! Have used practically yet so when I have you'll get 5* but impressed with what’s there so far. ?

Kicia Gata

Daily app No fuss. No problem. Just tap and there we go! And, wherever you are! Can't live without it anymore!


Such a helpful app. I drive everywhere but when I do use public transport to go into the city it's a massive help.

Minto Chawla

Good, but can be improved Accurate data. However the interface could be a bit more user friendly. Selectable many options are tiny. However you do get used to them

Dwain Williams

Can't leave home without it Really reliable! Updates in real time if there's any delays....good layout! Can't complain.

Maaz Mohiuddin

simple and effective simple and it works. basically takes the live stream from tfl site and does so neatly. I like this app

Scott Sy71

Some routes are completely wrong Ok for busier London routes. Tells me there is a 320 running every 2 mins when actually it's 15 mins. Sometimes says there are no buses for over 30 minutes and then 1 minute later says there is one coming in 2 mins. Get it right!

Janine Norman

Love it!! Best app! Hardly ever have any problems with service. When app says bus is due you can see the bus. It has saved me many times from standing around in the wet and cold!

Rav Singh

User friendly app Easy to use and shows all the required information. Great app

Gary Wales

Lies! It says theres no bus within 30 minutes. Then one flys past. Crap. And it also doesnt seem to accept bus stop code or stop mane on their iwn.

Olaitan Adele

Very good ! It's doesn't let me missed my bus to work an right time to get my train ! Thanks to this apps !

Mark H

Was very good... This app was very good, easy to use and accurate most of the time. Now it links to the annoying TFL website which is fiddly to use and doesn't even provide bus information about some of the various stops that I use.

Paula Woodward

Like the app, hate the move to the website So why change it? It's just not as useable! New web version's navigation on a phone is rubbish.

Ashley Cowan

TFL have ruined this It was simple and easy. TFL have now ruined it. The new app is slow, bloated and clunky. I'm now looking for a new London bus app that's simple and fast.

Lucy Longville

Like the app It's the only TFL bus app that actually tells you when there is a problem, I had no idea there was no buses running down my road until I went into this app. Thanks.

snowy river

Disappointed! Sell out to TFL!! Notice on the app that it is being taken over by TFL on 1st June. TFL is an awful site which is cumbersome and full of adverts. Very disappointed that this app will no longer be available.

Jennifer Adams

Waste of time Since updating and changing to a TFL app,it's completely useless. I use this app for the school run and find it essential but now it's so slow,glitchy and unusable, please fix!!

Patricia Oxlade

Loved it but not any more Used this app all the time. Generally very reliable. Taken over by TfL and now it's worse than useless just takes you to their website. Time to look for another app. Very disappointed

Michael Smith

Turned to rubbish. Used to be a great app. Now sends you to the tfl site. No where to save stops or bus routes, even though it says "add to favourites". Where does it save them? It's not under the star they say to press that just asks you to look up your particular mode of transport.

Alice Van Haeften

Used to be a brilliantly useful and easy to use app but now it's basically just a link to a pretty mobile unfriendly website. Uninstalling and installing another app.

Jane Lee

It's shit Sometimes it says the bus stops are closed when they are not and it makes it difficult to guess when the bus is coming also it doesn't show if a bus is early or late which would be handy, and it won't show stops around you unless you have a post code and it says there are no buses for 30 mums name done comes in 5?! So it doesn't even give an easy option anymore and it sends you all over the Web before it lies about when a bus is coming or says there are none at all

Lucy Kenny

Useless since tfl update Once the tfl update came onto this app it has been useless. Having to click through 3 screens just to see when your bus is coming rather than one screen as before. Favourites do not save and as of 3 days ago cannot even access the app. Have removed and found a better app now.

Elvina Chang

Useless Since the update to the tfl site, it's useless! The bus times you cannot refresh without loading the page again. The my favourites doesn't work, where to see your saved favourite? ! Can it be reverted back to how it was using the tfl api!! I'm going to have to find another app!

Mark Goldby

Awful This was a great app until the upgrade. Now its very slow, you can't save favourites and does not refresh. This does nothing to add value to customer service. In fact it's the opposite unhelpful and frustrating. Whoever decided to do this needs sacking. The current rating for this app is based on a previous version and does not reflect the poor quality of this app. Thank you to a previous reviewer for a good alternative. Do not waste your time downloading this .

Nana Ellis-Baidoo

Amazing before but now..... What was an amazing, simple to use, efficient and reliable app has now been turned into a barely functional inaccurate one. The recent changes, which now loads up what seems like a Web browser, has caused major problems with loading and efficiency. Stops are no longer saved and the general navigation through out has been hampered.

Anneka Townsend

Was great until update! This app has been replaced by the TFL website. As a result, the app has become slow and hard to navigate through. I advise to download the free app: 'Bus Times London Live Route'. It does the job quickly and very easy to navigate :)

Nargus StormKnight

Was good before Until the latest update that replaced the plain UI with the London transport website. It's super slow now. And not even favourites button works anymore. Feel like I'd better just use the browser, as I'd at least able to favourites my stops then.

Janine Norman

If it ain't broke don't fix it! This used to be a very user friendly app, that I had rated 5 stars. Since the transfer to tfl it is clumsy and the favourites function does not work. I still use it but it frustates me every time i have to go through the process of finding my regular stops.

Lizzie Walker

Not accurate The predicted waiting times for the P12 are shockingly inaccurate. I assume this is because my stop is close to the start of the route, but I don't see this as an excuse. Something needs to be sorted out because it's incredibly frustrating and inconvenient

Valerie Lawrence

USELESS Since this has been updated I am unable to use it on my mobile. When hitting the Star to retrieve my Favourites the screen goes grey. I can use it on my PC at home but that is of little use when I'm out & about! Pls sort this out. Meanwhile I'm using a different App.

Esther Trigwell

This app is awful You have made this app complicated and impossible to navigate. It is not user friendly at all. All I wanted was to find out bus times and instead I get a load of other stuff that is not relevant. I have now downloaded another app that is exactly what I wanted. Take it back to what it originally was when it did what it was ment to do

Hazel Japhet

Why have they replaced it with tfl? Why have they replaced bus countdown with STUPID TFL? I used to love and use bus countdowm to get EVERYWERE by bus... i go to use it last week and what happenes???? I cant use it anymore as it took me to some dumb stupid TFL website which im NOT going to use btw

James Baptista

Was the best countdown app before the latest update. Now it just links to the tfl website which is very slow and hard to navigate. I think tfl are to blame as I think they have made changes to block apps serving as an interface to their website. This is a shame because it has rendered this app useless and I will now uninstall. So much for progress... P.S. For anyone looking for a similar app to how this used to be London Bus Pal is your best bet (it includes a Favourites Bus Stop list)

Cherry Stocker

Poor user experience Now a very poor app. Loved it before the upgrade/ new design. Now it doesn't save favourites properly, and doesn't show your frequently used bus stops as a front page, so doesn't really save any time. Lovely design, but poor functionality.

Sana Aziz

Superb,,,,Really Great Help I really love this app. It made my life and journeys very easy & Help me more Punctual. It was really hard taking kids out & about, especially School going was always a trouble in various weather conditions. Now it saved my time, Energy & hassel. Thanks a Lot.

Danielle Mitchell

Not as good When I enter a code for the bus stop it's always ask did you mean? I know what I mean so what's the point in asking. As far as I can see there is no refresh button. Add to favourites does work and there is no recents. All the adds are annoying, the old layout was perfect and simple to use.

William Mackenzie

Why did they change it???? New site far too cluttered. Bus information inaccurate and inconsistent. Site too graphics heavy and slow. Adverts too prominent. No 'refresh' button. A case of wrecking a perfectly good site (the previous version) with something not fit for purpose.

Rianna Ulumeninha

I don't like changes This was the best app up until last month when they decided to change it. Now it is terrible. It's difficult to see the arrival times. I am not impressed with the changes I have actually removed the app from my phone.

Rachel Packford

Bad since update Doesn't work since link up to TFL. Can't even find where to type in what bus I need and "plan a journey" button doesn't work. Useless. Used to love this app for its simplicity and accuracy, now it's a shambles!

Val o

Totally ruined a nice little app with a flashy data chomping upgrade. Not at all clear on my small screen, lags terribly and won’t save my stops to favourites. TFL, please re-release the old version. I just need to know when the bus will arrive, I don’t need a slow loading map, I know where I am (most of the time!) and I don’t want to text you for the info either, I had an app for that.

Steve Mowles

Oh dear! I endorse what others have said. Since the update, you can't save your preferred bus stops to favourites. This means keying in bus route and stop EVERY time! A backward step.

Erykah Brackenbury

Used to be great... Now it just redirects to the TfL website. I can't add favourite stops on my phone and what used to be a 10-second check now takes several min, during which point I have inevitably missed the next bus.

Natalie T

NatalieT Since it became part of the Tfl, the app is horrible. I used it a lot and now I'm thinking to change it. When I want to save something to favourite, it just gets stuck and...nothing. Very disappointed. It used to be one of my favourite apps.

Garry Porter

Bus times table Excellent app. Been using for a week and seems accurate. Didn't ask for access to every sensor on my phone either. STOPPED WORKING AFTER ABOUT TWO WEEKS! GOING TO UNINSTALL.

Winston Doobz

Update is dirt This app is terrible now. Do not download, it's basically the tfl site. You can't even save regular bus stops. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. 0 stars

Jahneva Canarii

Where is the simple app gone? I'm very disappointed with the new update that links to the TFL website. Before I had my favourites stops, and within seconds I'll be able to see straight away. Now I have to type the stop and select it in a list. I've been using this app for a year every single morning... I'll have to look for an alternative.

Leigh Hardy

Horrible Update Do not like the app anymore since the new update! Struggle to find anything useful like Live Bus Arrivals and can't even find my local bus stops. WAS good before update, now TERRIBLE!!! Definately uninstalling it...

philip williams

Awful! The worst update ever! Whoever designed this should be made to use it eternally! It's the pits! 1 star is giving it more credit than it deserves.

Tina Purvor

New app is useless!! I have been using this app for ages but in the last month or so it is completely useless. Doesn't find you, let alone the buses close by. Can not find the live bus count down. Also doesn't work at storing past bus routes. So useless am deleting it. Why touch something that worked well and change it to this useless version!. Certainly would not recommend now..

J Phone

Tiny text, too few saved stops For bus users, ie those in London without a car, there are too few saved stops. If you add up shopping, getting to the station, visits etc, there and back it doesn't allow for much. The text is workable, but I often press the wrong one.

Mack Herbert

Good Good when it's works. Not sure if it's the app that fails from time to time or the people that upload the info onto it. Nevertheless it's a good app, works much more often than not. I have noticed that someone has written, buses turn up which are not shown on this app. I notice this when I've decided to walk because I dont want to wait 30 minutes. Then like magic a bus passes me on my walk. Dam it, walking in the rain.

Amazing ArachnoMan

Who was the Imbecile?? Seriously.. who was the idiotic Moron who decided to change the way the app used to be?? Before it was so easy to use.... you typed the bus number and that was it... everything you needed to know.... Now It is horrible to use... it takes ages to find the information needed and by the time you get it.... the bus Arrives!!! What the hell were you thinking??? If I could give this app a minus 3 stars I would!!

Alison Walker

Just awful This worked brilliantly until the latest update and now it's appalling. All we want are bus times, not the whole TFL website which is what it seems to be offering. Before it was very easy to input bus numbers or location to get the relevant information, now it's a challenge & whilst trying to find the relevant page you've probably missed your bus. Am going to delete this app & find one that gives you what you want/need
