NextBus- Official NextBus App For Transit Agencies app reviews

  • I hate nextbus 1/5

    By downloadrider
    I've used this app begrudgingly for a year and a half and it's been infuriating every day. The timing is routinely off by double, there's no route options, the app is basically useless. Rider is literally so much better. I hate you nextbus for wasting cumulative hours or my life and making me want to drop out of college
  • Works Awesome in SF 5/5

    By Herbixcube
    I originally was hesitant in using the app since it had low ratings. However, a friend highly recommended me to use it, and I am glad I listened. I ride the Muni in San Francisco daily, and the app allows me to personalize my frequently used stops. It gives the next bus arrival time, in addition to the next. So far it has been highly accurate in terms of bus times.
  • "No data" status 1/5

    By Astacci
    Both of my campus buses say "no data," so they seem to be untraceable despite showing up in the drop down. Fix it.
  • Missing schedules 1/5

    By pedxing7445
    Some stops and schedules are unavailable. Please fix!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Bachthechicken
    It works very accurately for me, even the arrival times and everything. It's only off by like one minute sometimes compared to the website ( for the town that I live in, so yeah, I really think it just depends on your transit service. I would recommend trying it and comparing it to the website/your area's transit website, then seeing how good it is. Also, the interface is very nice -- simple, easy to figure out, not a lot of clicking needed/ads. It's great because you can mark certain routes as favorites, whereas for the site, you have to click through everything if it can't figure out your location. I just have a question: how does the real time route thingy work (the map that pops up when you click on the route)? Does it show you where the bus is, or where you are, etc.?
  • Most useless app 2017 1/5

    By Strawberrybastard
    The creator of next bus just needs to commit seppuku
  • App never find anything. 1/5

    By FairGame74
  • Never ever accurate 1/5

    By Pupnkit
    Not even close. What's the point?
  • Fantastic for LA 5/5

    By ddmattsung
    I never heard of the app before until this homeless guy in LA told me to get it. Even homeless people in California are tech savvy. Wew. In all seriousness, I think the performance of this app depends on which city you are in. I've only tried the app in LA and it has been awesome. Helps me plan my day a lot faster and easier.

    WHAT It's fast easy and very reliable. NEXTBUS has never disappointed
  • Nextbus is raping the transit agencies! 1/5

    By Iphoner310
    Transit agencies pay a ton of money to Nextbus for their realtime app service. In return Nextbus is providing a piece of crap. Doesn't work well when users increase their phone's font size. The UX looks like it was done by someone completely unqualified to create UX. And the setting to show Bus stops/lines within a certain distance doesn't work at all. I see bus lines that are miles away from my location. I hope the transit agencies force Nextbus to release their real time data free to the public via API so someone else can create a better app.
  • Horrible 1/5

    By Wklakxlaksmmz
    Tells u a bus is 20 mins away, than 2 minutes later tells u one is actually 30 seconds away. It's easier to just wait at the stop than rely on this
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By Malik's Uncle
    Often times it says a bus will take a longer time than expected and then a bus will arrive much sooner. What's annoying about this is many people will contact a ride share under the impression there will be a longer wait time for the bus.
  • Nice interface. 3/5

    By Jonathan Oz
    The interface is nice. Often have difficulty connecting even when I appear to have a solid WiFi connection or full bars. Also, I cannot seem to get the application to update location without exiting and relaunching
  • Works like a charm 5/5

    By forthwrite
    I've relied on NextBus to get around LA for more than a year. It's been accurate to within a minute just about always.
  • Horribly Inaccurate 1/5

    By Captain Americasanueva
    This app said my bus would arrive in 40 minutes. So, I decided to wait in the Subway across the street. It hasn't been 40 minutes and I just missed 2 buses. This app is a dis-service.
  • It's 50 degrees and there have been 2 phantom buses 1/5

    By Wahineelena
    Using this app won't get you to work on time, especially during the morning commute. They need to figure out how to track ALL buses accurately, especially before 7am
  • Busy student 5/5

    By SethCrane
    Easy to use. Quick & painless to download. I don't understand the low ratings.
  • Good 5/5

    By Fkinpigu
    Good experience. Only app that support university bus. But it will be great if I can see the routing map when "no data" since I always make plan at night and so annoyed cannot look at stop location and route.
  • Could be much better 3/5

    By sensei205
    The NextBus mobile website is better than the mobile app, I bookmark my usual stops. An iPhone widget for this app would be very useful to provide departure times for nearby stops
  • Next bus 1/5

    By RJ1968A
    This app and its related website are woefully bad. Inaccurate times given. App constantly freezes and unable to find correct stop. Use Moovit instead.
  • Tin cans with string better 1/5

    By UnicornScotty
    Writing this while I am waiting for a bus that NextBus said would appear 7 minutes ago. Still waiting! What I am experiencing is best case scenario with this terrible piece of software. Worst case is when NextBus says you have 7 minutes, but you see the bus zoom by when you're still half a block away. Isn't the free market supposed to weed out nonsense like NextBus?
  • Pathetic app 1/5

    By Somervilleenraged
    Buses often disappear/just come 25 minutes later, prediction times switching from 3 to 10 minutes..I've attempted to use this app off and on for three years and I am pretty sure they've managed to make it work. Pile of flaming garbage.
  • Dont download 1/5

    By Guy who uses buses
    Just dont do it, go for transit or at least an app that works. This one gives wrong info a lot and wastes ur time. Im writing this review standing in the rain because it said a bus was coming in 4 minutes and now its been ten.
  • Not enough data 3/5

    By Chasinsf
    There's a glitch that when I am out of the city it will pick transit options that are 100 miles away.
  • Crash on iOS10 1/5

    By ZedTheLevin
    Plz fix the immediate quit bug
  • Horrible accuracy (AC Transit) 1/5

    By Vishwacorp
    This app's data on the AC transit buses in Oakland is wildly inaccurate. It's worse than not even having an app and just waiting at the stop.
  • Delete this App from ever existing!!! 1/5

    By JeebussJeebuss
    This app isn't even accurate, doesn't work at all, just delete it and never use it. I'm really piss off with this app.
  • Boo 1/5

    By Penny2001!
    This is the most useless piece of crap I have ever used. Totally wrong all the time. Whoever created this should feel really bad about how many times they have made me late to work. Try again or get a new profession because bus tracking apps are not your expertise.
  • The most accurate review on here 4/5

    By SashaLaw
    This app is accurate but only if you use it right. The time estimates aren't always correct. But the tracking of where the buses are is scary accurate. So rely on the location of the bus and not the estimated time. Great free service.
  • Arrivals NOT real-time 2/5

    By wily ludo
    The app does not distinguish between scheduled times and GPS-based predictions. This can be critical info when trying to plan a transfer. Have transit agency phone numbers ready and call to verify accuracy if your schedule is tight.
  • doesn't work when you need it to 1/5

    By CookiezLover
  • KT line is inaccurate 1/5

    By Mrkight
    It is almost never right. And the app is different from what google says, which is also different than what the sign at the train stop says. I can't rely on this app.
  • Bus time not accurate 1/5

    By Sanf415
    The time of the bus is way off, for example of bus 44, it said 86 mins when it came like 7 mins. Useless
  • Accurate & Life Saving 5/5

    By Icano18
    When this app says the next bus will be here in a minute, TRUST me, it means a minute! I rely on this tracking app to get to my job and SO FAR, it's been VERY RELIABLE. DOWNLOAD WITH CONFIDENCE! :)
  • Wildly inaccurate 1/5

    By Comrade Spud
    1. Lacks published departure times from AC Transit 2. Departure times calculated by app are wildly inaccurate Skip this app if you live in the east bay and download a magic 8-ball app instead. The magic eight ball will be accurate more frequently.
  • SF muni - no buses showing 1/5

    By '-',-,
    Completely useless after iOS update 10.
  • Not Accurate at All 1/5

    By Mayooooooooooooooooo
    As other posts says, it is inaccurate. Showed the bus already left my stop while it was actually coming my way and was 12 min away.
  • Horribly Inaccurate 1/5

    By Brian, a big fan of Genra
    This app is terrible, the times it gives are wrong so it's been off by almost 10 minutes. Last time I'm using nextbus Garbage application and website wrong too
  • Don't do it 1/5

    By Still Waiting 2
    Indicates that a bus is on the way when it in fact has already left. Will count down the arrival time for a bus that doesn't actually exist and then resets to show the arrival time for the next bus that actually isn't coming. Save the frustration. This app is useless.
  • Very Inaccurate 1/5

    By Bman 2027
    Not much good to say about this app and service. I've tried it for the various bus and rail lines in San Francisco, yet I have to browse through every transit agency they support in the whole country to pick a route. The "real time" data they show is horribly inaccurate and frequently shows busses arriving and departing my stops when no real bus is anywhere to be seen for at least ten minutes before or after, and shows no busses arriving at all in the time that two go by. In the six weeks I've been commuting in SF, it was nearly correct once, I'm now certain by pure coincidence. It does have one nice feature in that it lets you save your stops to favorites so you don't have to browse for them every time.
  • Very INACCURATE 1/5

    By Airbears3
    1 minute pretty much means 2 minutes. 5 minutes remaining = 10+ minutes.
  • Works great in Winston Salem, NC 4/5

    By StalkU4Fun
    Great app
  • Horrible Update 1/5

    By Jaybri365
    Hateeee the fact that I can't see the listed directions & stops the bus is going to anymore, it just makes everything so confusing when you don't know the area too well. I prefer the old update
  • Inaccurate 1/5

    By Mariahelyssia
    Says the bus comes in 1 minute but you're still waiting 5 more minutes
  • Go back to better Nextbus app 1/5

    By Fahm007213
    This app is pure garbage. Go back to the old and better Nextbus app, whereas once it's open it shows you all the buses coming to that stop and stop near by
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By Travelingchickadee
    For a long time, this app was fantastic. Since the upgrade, bus arrival times are totally unreliable. The app will say the next 2 buses are due in 2 and 22 minutes- and it will hold at 2 until 22 minutes have passed and the *later* bus shows up. Or worse, it'll count down to 0, no bus shows, and the time will suddenly change to 25 minutes. Argh!
  • This app is a lifesaver! 👍 5/5

    By dgeviper
    Let's just say that I sought out this app on the App Store again JUST to review it. Being new to San Francisco, I was looking for a way to get Muni bus stop times on the fly. This app delivers in spades. Thank you so much!
  • Bad bad bad no terrible 1/5

    By JaundicedEye
    You have to browse every transit system in the country to find your bus. That's with location services enabled. One issue among many. No search function. Favorites get deleted. Endless pain. You will spend more time using this app than calling information, getting the number for local bus authority, calling the bus line, and finding your route there. Do not waste your time with this app.
  • "Update" only crashes 1/5

    By paulaink
    What happened to this app? It was marginal to begin with and now it won't even start up!! When I hit the button it gliches out and immediately quits. It won't even start up now! 😁
