Works great for me Very basic but it does what it is supposed to. It would be nice if it could show when the bus is coming as hh:mm, like 9:15 and 9:45, so I don't have to do the calculation in my head. I don't have any of the slowdown problems others are reporting

Very inaccurate App is not real time, and even after refreshing bus location it shows bus 1-2 km away even though it's right in front of me. Good for seeing how many buses are working that route though.

Worst app ever It slows down my phone so much that it's barely useable. The app is laggy and often just wrong. Just last week I was waiting for the #16 south to kerrisdale, the app told me a bus was 4 mins away, then 3, then 2..... no bus showed up. Refreshed the screen and it started with 4 mins again, exact same deal, and still no bus. This went on for about half an hour until I finally gave up and decided to walk. there myself. I checked the app as I walked and it randomly said x # of minutes, counting down, then nothing.

Good But Fails often What the app does is awesome...but the reliability of it is terrible. Often it will not connect to the server or is unresponsive so you can't check the bus schedule... In that way it is a huge fail. It would be nice to have a "server down" notice or something when the server is down because otherwise it's like waiting for undryable paint to dry.

Alex Manita

Great app but need some improvvement Could you guys add option for using map. Because every time it loads the map it uses to much internet 23mb for 3 days. Could you make map as an option?

M. Braums

Poor and inaccurate You have to go "back" to get realtime updates. Map icon doesn't reflect actual times or times quoted in the app. For example. One bus was scheduled by arrive in 2 min. But position on map showed it was far away,about 10 minutes. Only when pressing back and selecting same stop did it show bus was 10 minutes away and bus icon moved. Use the official TransLink mobile website instead or buy an iPhone.

Perfect Translink App Simple and works fast. Shows where the bus is on a map. Nice favorites functionality. Overall excellent!

Pat Tracker

Missing stops Please check that all stops marked on maps are also searchable. For example, stop 52423 is on the map but doesn't come up on the search.

Kc Android

Ads All the ads chew up the real estate on the screen so you cannot see the map.


Best bus app yet It does what it says in real time. Very pleased kudos to the developer. Keep up the good work.

Dez May

Great idea but... Works very well but super heavy on data usage...

James Gardiner

Amazing Honestly, this app has vastly improved my quality of life. Very accurate, fast. Slightly heavy on data from what I expected.

Chris Sleightholme

This is terrible This app is terrible and a bit frustrating, you can't search by bus number, at least I can't see where you can, only by stop number. Which is no help if you're trying to see what time a connection leaves, especially when you're not near the stop. I prefer the translink app for iPhones it just worked better.

Lae Soud

It a good app. Should have a way to look up bus schedule as well.

pat patterson

App works well enough but recently they added ads to it and it now locks my device up

Tom Gray

Pretty good. This app is very handy when it works. However quite often when trying to use it, the map won't load. So I've selected my stop and I get sent to a blank screen.

Reza Rahmani

super slow. Gives lots of errors. Complicated to work with. The first version was much better!

Mark Moje

Good but outdated A number of stops I usually go to can't be looked up. Otherwise a good app.

Stacy Davidson

Needs a lot of work Keeps telling me certain stops have no busses in the middle of the day and that certain stop numbers don't exist

Keishin Tamashiro

Great interface! Interface is good but the app hangs once in a while and also the bus locations don't always refresh properly.

Andrew M

Needs some improvements. I like the option to see the route schedule for my bus, if I don't have to leave until 2 hours from now what time will be the bus arrive? If there are traffic delays it could notify me on my favorited bus route. Having the option of calling the bus stop directly would be a useful feature.

Vek L

Hell ya of an app Very impressed by the accuracy of this app. A must have for Vancouver commuters!

Lisa Douglas

So far so good. I love the find buses near me feature.

Jianhui Tao

Its nice Good app however isnt 100% accurate of where the buses are, but gives you a general idea of the buses location. I wish u could add a trip planner to the app :(

Charmane Lalic

Awesome Comparing this app to other transit apps in other provinces this is a very superior app.

John H

Not as shown. Looking for a real time bus tracker. The map showing buses under the selected bus list, does not show up as is seen in the above picture. Uninstalled and still looking. Fail!

Damien Bargiacchi

Ok Refresh refreshes the map tiles so it's very slow to get updates.

Parker Jones

Good A really useful app, I just wish you didnt need data

Abby Greene Bull

Love this app! Easy to use, and it tracks the actual busses. Better than texting the bus number. Way better than the one I was using before I had to format my phone.

Jane Whittington

Nom, nom, nom! This app sees your monthly data quota as a tasty snack.

First Last

DATA USAGE VERY HIGH! Great app!! , BUT I agree with the dozens of users who have said data is WAY too high. Desperately needs a way to turn OFF the maps when you have to leave Wifi for expensive mobile data. (or a way to save the map offline beforehand). Unfortunately the high map data usage means that I cannot use it outside.

Lyn Rooke

Not good Can't see the map after you click on a bus. Then it says it's 43 minutes away and it was right in front of me don't download.

Ehsan Khorasani

Doesnt show me real time!

Rebecca Wu

It's completely useless

Hardeep Singh

Accurate ! Very convenient, just type in the route number and shows you real time location of buses on Google maps

Daniel McPhail

Meh So far not so good

Ben Sullivan

GPS and estimates highly inaccurate

Sean Wilson

Works great for me Very basic but it does what it is supposed to. It would be nice if it could show when the bus is coming as hh:mm, like 9:15 and 9:45, so I don't have to do the calculation in my head. I don't have any of the slowdown problems others are reporting, and the update still works for me.

Aiden Venturi

Usually works unless it's a holiday This app always breaks on holidays which are the times when I need to know I haven't missed a bus since my route to work changes on those days.

Gabe Teeger

Update doesnt work This app worked fine until they 'updated' it, now the buses wont load, terrible app, terrible ads

mike hogg

Initially worked perfectly. After a recent update the app crashes at least three times while using it, sometimes staying open long enough to see when my bus arrives. The time is at least accurate when I can see it, so it's got that going for it.

Derar Alassi

Horrible I use the app to plan my bus ride from Port Royal in Queensborough to 22nd ave stn. The App is horrible and the service is even worse. 2 things: 1. App itself:you cant refresh the list of buses and you have to simply start over again, the saved bus routes don't work and you have look up a certain stop every time you need it, not user friendly at all. 2. Service itself: the times shown are NOT accurate At ALL. It shows my bus is coming get at 85 but the bus comes and leaves at 842. This is not 1 minute diff

Deezy Macc

Worked good 4 me too Basic but smoth

Kevin Klassen

Crashes constantly Crashes after only seconds of usage. 2 stars because it works long enough to get your info if you keep reloading the app enough times

Soroush Basirat

Great and useful app, the only problem with it is, it drains the battery so fast!

Anthony Csikos

New update Put back the last refreshed timer.

anton dodge

Gatbage Since the update it doesn't work at all, worked perfectly for months beforehand. If it isn't broken don't fix it idiots.

Lauren Chor

Miss the Time since last Refresh

Jason Fevang

New update It's great, so much better. I'm loving it so far, this is what it should have been

Farzad Abasi

Good idea Like the app but it crashes every few seconds

H Beacj

Used to be very accurate. Disappointed now

Carson King

Keeps crashing after moments of being open.

Kat Rowat

Pointless. Literally always wrong. Like every single time.

Rain Siren

Great App However. Material Design is not present, it would be great to also have dark/light theme. Scheduled bus check I guess with reminder if bus is coming few minutes from location. Leave notes on the preferred stop. All in all its the best.

John Soames

This app is fairly accurate. For the bus I use it is usually a minute behind, but it is consistent so I've never missed my bus. One problem I have though is that the map stopped working a few weeks ago. I use to be able to see the bus location on the map, but now all I see is white space; no map, no bus, nothing I'm using the app on a Nexus 5

mike hogg

Initially worked perfectly. After a recent update the app crashes at least three times while using it, sometimes staying open long enough to see when my bus arrives. The time is at least accurate when I can see it, so it's got that going for it.

Joshua Gastaldello

Crashes soon after opening it, despite saying they have fixed it.

Richard Perez

Very useful and precise It works as described, I have been using for 3 weeks and so far no errors or issues with the app

Shelly Gilbey Yohnnes

Awesome tracking, I love it

Joshua Gastaldello

Where's the map? The crashing has been fixed for real, hooray! Except now the map is gone... ?

Andrei Vulpe

Inconsistent Worked well at first but now it is wildly inconsistent and inaccurate, causing me to miss buses

Daniel King

Nice !! Seems to work freaking awesome !!!!??? I've used it 5 times now and I no longer have to get to the bus super earlier as I can see it on a GPS map . Now I don't wait more than 5 mins at the bus stop!!!

Adam Robertson

Widget? Widget! I would love to be able to see one or all of my favourite bus stops on my homescreen. I look at them daily and my phone is slow to open the app, click into the favourites section and then update the route. Please add a widget!

tim bahun

Said 7 minutes. I wait. Refresh, 4 minutes. Refresh 1 minute. Wait 5 more. Refresh, sorry that bus is not running right now. Have to run home and drive, depriving wife and kids of their day out. Pull out as bus is going by. WTF! Refresh as bus stopped right in front of me, sorry that bus is not running. You owe me for gas and parking.

Peter Craig

5 stars because it works pretty good I'm not sure who developed this app. Was it Translink themselves? If so then 6 stars because who would think that a government funded agency could create software that works this well. Not just the app but the data feed that supports the app. Works almost perfectly whenever I use it. Now if only you could say the same thing for the C23 bus route.


Only thing that works are the ads UPDATED: Good news - the crashing problem is gone. Bad news - so is the map from the search results screen. Restarting my phone, uninstalling & reinstalling the app do not bring the map back. Too bad, this would have been a very useful app if it works. I'll leave it uninstalled this time.

M. Braums

last update in summer 2015 only shows bus stop, that's it. don't bother with this app

Wynston M

Translink sucks at everything I've just, for the 5th time, had this app tell me a bus was coming in 5 mins that ends up not showing up and now I'm stuck here for 30 minutes. Translink, get it together.

Leonard Dame

Needs to update bus stops Bus routs change. New stops are added, so bus tracker needs to update.
