App issues Journey planner and bus tracker!?? I've had this app for a few years now and it's been brilliant but since I updated it the journey planner doesn't work at all, I keep getting an error message all the time and when I check to see when the bus is coming it jumps from 6mins to due in 30secs, but now more than often when I check to see where the bus is on the route checklist its empty no times and no stop names I have to literally close the app and wait 5-10mins for it to work properly again, a few friends are having the same issues as I am


Just 1 tinnie winnie bit Journey planner only responding with 'parsing error' whatever that is. Please fix for 5 stars. Great app by the way

A Google User

Certain issues When it is fully up and running there are very little problems. However, a recurring issue is when I launch the app at around 07:00-07:20. My phone turns on at 06:45 so it will have been on for at least 15 minutes before I launch the app, but when I do and then go to "Favorites", the app crashes once I select a stop and the process is repeated about three or four times before I don't have the issue. Please fix because this app is essential to my daily routine

Douglas Adams

Doesn't work Route planner doesn't work at all, for example if i want to plan a route from Waterloo to Stockwell i just get a message saying 'parsing error'. Uninstalled will try again next week though s like the idea of this app if it did work

Kingsley Li

Rubbish I won't give this app any rating. It is inaccurate, doesn't recognise some stations or bus stops. It relies on tfl data which is designed to give you the most expensive routes first and not the fastest and most convenient route. Whatever option you use (post code, , station name etc) it often returns routes that you know are completely wrong. Google maps works a great deal better. Even couldn't post a review without giving it a star which it does not deserve.

Kam M

Just found my new favorite route planner Great work on functionality and features, just let down by a dated ui, desperately needs a makeover (holo style) to complete this great piece of software & gain the full 5 stars. Thanks

John Lay

Nearly excellent Update: journey planner always returns "parsing error", so currently useless for that task. However Next Bus and Next Tube is usefull. ...... Well designed, intuitive app. Easy route planning with direct link with live tfl data. Very occasionally gets confused about actual location! But not a serious issue. Recommended.

gaelle-marie petit

A improvement on the TFL app You do not need to know the stop code number. It let you have the nearest stops as well at looking at where the bus is at any precise moment.

Grace Nelson

A must have I have tried few similar apps, but this one is far the best for London transport. Been using it for over 6 months now. Bus times are accurate and have helped me many times reach my bus on time or go shopping instead of waiting. Tube updates are great. Journey planet great. Favourites feature priceless. GUI good no need to change, please keep font this size, the smaller one would be hard to read. Love the app, its a keeper. Thank you

A Google User

Thank you! This is the font/sizing that your last app had - perfect on smartphone resolutions. Do not change that like Bus Countdown, which was frustrating after update- right now, this is all visible, massively useful, less clicks the better. *It does miss out on 363 route tho, so needs a fix there. *Hope you added the favourites edit feature from Countdown. Could be my 1st 5 star if so. Will keep updating the rating as i go thru rest of program. Stars will go up on next review im sure.

Lisa Shannon Barnes

Very Good App I've had this app for about a week now. Am using it several times daily and only once has it let me down. It's not rocket science to be able to understand. Therefore, i would definitely recommend this extremely handy app to anyone. (Samsung Galaxy S4).

Patricia Lewis-Goodridge

Not bad Not a bad app at all. Fairly easy to use and so far quite accurate as I checked as we were travelling from stop to stop. Sad I know

A Google User

London Bus and Tube just the BEST. It is such a good apps to have when you're running late or need to know when a bus is going to arrive at a certain stop and you want to catch it it's coooool

Aleksander Chirowski

Good app,but... Some tube stations are missing. It's a bit irritating. I recomend this app anyway. All in one which doesn't mean it's bad. It's good!

A Google User

Hasn't let me down yet... ....although I've only had this app for a week.

Casey Lino

Best Excellent the best buss app love it i recomend this good for when your going school or work It aint good its great besttt

A Google User

A useful app Combines trains and buses in one app which handy although a few crashes and it's a shame there is no add free version available but the app maker needs to make a regular income so fair enough. The the search on the travel planner is a little confusing hopefully it will be improved in future updates. But a handy app which saves me so much time every week :-D

Waheed Shah

Great App A good app which is similar to the TfL one. Only let down is sometimes it does not update the tube status. Overall very good.

A Google User

Excellent apps Only bug it has on is Application closes when i check hammersmith &city line. Oh I like it. Super. It has bus tube Journey planner All I need. Ans working fast on my galaxy ace

Stephen Aleppo

Super App This one is so good i have to say something about it. I soon uninstalled my previous bus and tube apps once i used this. Easy to use. Easy to see. Customisable. Use this one. Great app.

Norrisa Rennalls

Angry I'm so upset with ur app everything you try says parsing error...If it can't cope with simple route finders postcode to postcode n my location...what's the point or this stupid app...

thusitha weerakoon

Very use full Just enter the bus stop no which u find next to time table in bus stop. U will get wht time u get next bus. Or ur post code still get same. Work with underground too. Very useful whn u know all functions.

A Google User

Great time saver Saves me standing around in the cold wondering when the next bus will arrive. Journey planner is awful though so I still use pubtran for that.

Paul Mason

Works well I've used it for a week and found it responsive and accurate, even keeping track of times while underground.

Paul Gitsham

Shockingly bad - stick with a paper map The route planner is a complete mess. 1st it kept on planning circular routes, taking the destination as the start point. After reloading it then refused to recognise King's Cross, regardless of whether I used an apostrophe. After another reboot, it recommended that I switch to the H & C line at East Ham. This line doesn't go through East Ham. Stick with the paper map.

Francesco Lodolo

Could have a smarter routing On a tube strike day you would except a smarter routing, not one that suggests you to take inconvenient connections.

A Google User

Poor data handling Dates show a month out. E.g. I searched for 11 Feb 2013 and the screen showed 11/1/13. It is always a month out. Station search finds my station but then shows a different station in the results. Unreliable data means I can't trust the suggested route - will uninstall

J Singh

Does everything!! All in one app for busses and trains, nice user interface aswell. If It also had a tube map it would be perfect.

Uzoma Isichei

Extremely useful and reliable You need an app that is dependable for getting around London by public transport. Look no further.

A Google User

review database Need to review the tube line database. Barkingside station in zone 4 not in zone 5. No need for tube line selection for a single line station. In overall good apps.

Clif King

htc desire hd Brilliant works just fine.. hmm.. now if could get to the bus stop in time! :)

Farooq Zafar

Very good app. Great great app. Used many but this one is the best. If favourite stops page could be made default startup, it would be so helpful.

Prosper Afeeva

London Tube and Bus It's a very useful app and I always use it. Everyone must have it.

Paul Gisby

As always London transport apps are a complete waste of time! As with all London transport apps this doesnt work properly either. Does anyone know of one where the journey planner actually works?

Duncan j

HTC one m7 great Used to have live London bus tracker but mcAffee said it was spyware, so I looked for something else and after trying a few I found this, and I'm glad I did it's great better than I could have hoped for, fast, with tubes good looking, very few app permissions, and with all the features I was looking for. anyway my bus is here... But I already knew it was coming so I'm ready :-)

Amtul Tahir

The bus stop app This is an fantastic app. I had this on my last phone and it was fantasic but as i got my new phone it took ne so much trouble findong it but i found it and i love it. But there is one down side o think that.this app is a bit to slow and know that it can be better in its speed thankyou.

Peter Blade

Aweful Bad interface. Very clunky and innacurate

songa makokha

This is the best transport application I have ever used. Having both the tube and bus makes it a complete transport application and a must have.

A Google User

It's ok... GPS being left on, can be a bit annoying but other than that the app is pretty solid.

Vincent Lo

Nearly perfect Could do with the option to start app in favourites screen. Also to reduce GPS usage when in app.

Andy Davison

OK but... There is no London Overground on it which is all part of Tfl. The Journey Planner doesn’t work (always has a parsing error) and even if it did only has a departure time not an arrival time option. I use TfL's own website for this. Set up is easy though and I save particular bus stops as favourites which make it easy to use.

Ramin Azizi

Used to be amazing Lack of support on this app for new versions of Android or maybe lack of support for possible updated api from TFL. Whatever it is, this app used to work in 2012/13 but refuses to work on my kit Kat and lollipop phones!!!! Journey planner gives parsing error every time! Used to be my most used app

Rob Healy

Needs updating I have pointed out before that the weekend Tube status is now dysfunctional plus needs TfL rail and new Overground services adding.

Conrad Linde

Parsing error Tried journey planner inserting departure post code and destination station and got parsing error. Then tried to put different things for departure including address and station but would not register. Using Android

Gillian Boome

Gill Use this app for bus times, always accurate, never missed a bus since I've had it ?

Stephen Aleppo

Super App This one is so good i have to say something about it. I soon uninstalled my previous bus and tube apps once i used this. Easy to use. Easy to see. Customisable. Use this one. Great app. Now been using for two years. Still brilliant.

Michael Hayward

Does what it needs to. No more, no less. This gives you what you expect with a timetable app. It served its purpose well. The main issues are that it's slow, very slow... Also, a few options have broken. Recommended if you have little space on your phone for applications.

Trevor Hipperson

Parsing Error ? Just downloaded but every time I try to plan a journey I get "Parsing Error" on searching routes ? Nexus 7, android 5.0.2

A Google User

Poor data handling Dates show a month out. E.g. I searched for 11 Feb 2013 and the screen showed 11/1/13. It is always a month out. Station search finds my station but then shows a different station in the results. Unreliable data means I can't trust the suggested route - will uninstall

Lorna 2016

Does not work Searching for routes gave "parsing error" result each time. Keeps crashing. its a shame because the ui is great.

Gillian Boome

Gill Use this app for bus times, always accurate, never missed a bus since I've had it ?

George Thomas

Simply perfect (almost) Used to have bus countdown but push adverts meant my mobile virus protector vetoed it. Found this and it is even better than last app. .....can't rate this high enough. Would get 5☆but perfection does not exist.

Marc Danby

Best bus live timetable I have used a couple of live bus apps some you need to pay for and some stop working properly after a while. This app is great because you can either type in a bus route number to look up a specific bus stop or the app will find the nearest bua stops to you. Highly recommend app.

Javid Girach

Very good app happy with this app. When I am on a bus I like to know approx what time I would reach my destination but this app doesn't give full bus stops list it cuts off in middle of the route.

Gwenette Crawford

Bit of work This app works good, except for the date when planning a trip. It is never right. Always days behind. I have uninstalled & reinstalled, but to no avail. Please fix. This is a great app would not want to have to delete.

Balbir Marwaha

Superb but please add: 1. Tube Map (Offline) and 2. Oyster balance position. 3. Add more Tube Stations and Bus Stops with Auto-update. It will then be the best of all such apos.

mohammod kayum

Useless Doesn't work. Had GPS location active. Still nothing. Doesn't include overground stations but displays service status

A Google User

Mixed Really good on most aspects but the journey planner is so incompetent it becomes a joke. It takes the most roundabout, nonsensical routes possible which could double or even triple journey time.

A Google User

Saved me £20 cab fare last week! I was able to time my journey down to the minute! Can be annoying when TfL take a train out of service - it still shows as due but without a destination. Too many button presses if multiple lines serve a stop - is it possible to list just e/b or w/b and highlight background to reflect line? Is it possible to list more than 3 trains in either direction?

Keji Jane Hall

Love love love Amazing app. My journeys have never been more efficient. The 'favourites' screen . A particularly good feature. I us t a app every day. Highly recommended. Thanks

C Tan

C2pig Very useful apps, help me a lot for the arrival of the bus. The thing is I can't refresh while checking the bus countdown

Daryl Sinclair

Excellent info, awful ads Very useful app but the way the ads generate with a few second delay, pushing everything else a centimetre or two down the page, often meaning you inadvertently click the wrong link/bus station ruins the app. Citymapper does it better...

Norman Borland

Needs more developement. Was good at start, but went down. Journey planner does not work and continually reports "parsing error". Deleted until shows improvement.

Susan Hughes

Extremely accurate! This is a great App. It's timings are near perfect. I have only one complaint and that is I would like to be able to buy it without any advertising.

Michael Lumsden

Really useful app. Only disappointment is the journey planner - slow process filling in all the fields and more often than not it then fails...

Gillian Norris

Doesn't Work Since downloading this app to new Samsung S5 six weeks ago this app has not worked even once. Uninstalling now, time wasting and useless.

yasir alwahab

Excellent Excellent app. Combines the times of both the underground and London buses. The favourite list with the filter is extremely useful to keep a list of the bus stops and the buses I use regularly. Would be nicer if it had the tube map.

Ted Tom

Not great Would be a really great app if you could plan a journey. But it comes back with a parsing error therefore dosnt work.
