Helpful app for daily riders 5/5
Like the feature where you can track the bus real time. It also tells you if the bus is not doing live updates. Then it defaults to the published schedule, which it does indicate.
Works great for me! 5/5
Been using for years. Always worked for me.
I just love this app 5/5
It is so helpful when you have to take the bus and transfer . My kids call it the "bus stalker" . It keeps them occupied when we're waiting for a bus. It helps me remember to get ready before the bus gets to my stop so I don't miss it. It really is worth having.
Go go metro 5/5
Real easy to use and it gets me to & from work with no problems.
Get around Seattle like a Peo 5/5
By Sweet on G
I love this App, I use it everyday to plan my trips to and from work, shopping and dinner. Easy to use and accurate.
Solid app 4/5

Helps me know when the bus is coming. Works well majority of the time

Very good for tracking your bus schedule.
info on when to leave the office 4/5
Great service! 5/5
Love it - express from Bellevue to Seattle- and Orca card for seniors is a must! However the park & ride issue in Bellevue is a mess!
Very good service 5/5
I love using this app for my daily commute to and fro from work and home.
The bus timings are close to accurate.
A Pretty Helpful App 5/5
I use this app at least twice a day, and it's pretty accurate.
It's helpful not only for my daily work commute, but also planning trips to new destinations.
One really helpful feature is seeing all of the bus stops in a general areas and which routes stop there. By clicking on the route, you can see all of the stops - I've been able to find new routes that have helped me avoid traffic and long waits.
I'd gladly pay money for this, but happy it's free!
Saves my bacon daily 5/5
By Jen Power
OneBusAway knows when the bus will arrive when no one else does. They save my butt at least once a week.
The best 5/5
Accurate, easy to use, probably the most useful third party app I have.
Super helpful 5/5
I'd be lost without this app.
Brilliant app 5/5
False precision 1/5
No information is better than wrong information. Frequently I arrive at the stop with several minutes to spare, and watch as the app shows the bus arrive, depart, and ten minutes later still no bus. While the UI is slick, the information is worse than useless. In my experience the data is no better than the posted schedule.
How all transit apps should work 5/5
How all transit apps should work
Useful to my life 5/5
It sometimes fails to work, but really it mostly helps me out a lot
No reason to be late again 5/5
Its updated all the time. Its gives you enough time to catch the bus
Use this all the time 4/5
For the routes that I commonly use, in Seattle, this app is great, and helps me with journey planning every trip.
Very accurate and works well 4/5
This app is very accurate at least in Seattle and the surrounding areas. I use it almost every day and the only thing I think that needs more attention is the look and the flow in the app. The user experience is so so. But overall it gets the job done
Very helpful 5/5
Good, helpful app.
Great app! 5/5
Makes getting into the groove of riding the bus way more convenient.
I love OneBusAway! 5/5
I use this app all the time to get around town. I have several bookmarks set for the places I go all the time. For other trips, I use the map function to get where I want to go. Several reviews mention that arrival times are incorrect. This is not the fault of OneBusAway. Blame your transit system for not providing accurate GPS locations for your bus.
Can always be improved with better data 5/5
It does exceptionally well with the information it has.
Pretty Horrific Compared to other Apps 1/5
Compared to public transportation apps in other cities, this is abominable. Regularly, the buses that say they're a couple minutes away just disappear and you're left with an estimation of 20 min away.
On the flip side, I had one just last night that said it was 18 minutes away. I was taking my time, and then 2 minutes later, it said that one arrived a minute early.
It's all we have in Seattle, as far as I know, but it's quite awful.
This app is a great help on my daily commute. I like the timer feature that alerts you a few minutes before your bus arrives. It is for the most part accurate. I have learned to take transit times in general with a grain of salt. It's best to be there early if you want to catch the bus.
No app is going to be completely accurate all of the time. It's only going to be as accurate as the data fed to it from behind the scenes.
This app is free so I can't complain.
It works 4/5
It's right more than it's wrong and it's never wrong by much and only ever with times.
Best bus app in Seattle 4/5
This is pretty accurate most of the time - yep, that's why I'm giving it four stars. I'm guessing that the information it is disseminating comes from a third party, so tough to judge it on that. It's accurate about 80% of the time, but watch out for those disappearing buses :)
Like it 5/5
I live by this app
Excellent Tool 4/5
By Barbara D Daniels
Maybe not 100% accurate, but I use it all the time so can forgive infrequent misinformation. Really a big assist in getting around Seattle.
More of a suggestion than a rule 4/5
Doesn't give real time data very often but is pretty accurate if the buses are running on time. I still use it all the time but show up 5 minutes early just in case.
Never be late again 5/5
On this app I can time my bus and I could leave just 5mins before the bus arrives and at any bus stop in the sound transit and metro area in king county is where I use this app. But I did opened it up in Cali and they didn't set up but if it did it would've been awesome !
Use it every day 5/5
Love it. Accurate and I use it daily.
Love it! 5/5
It's pretty accurate most of the time!
Great app 5/5
This is a great app. I use it daily. Never had an issue with times or missed busses.
App I use 2x per day 5/5
By Cam Scott
I rely on this app every commute day. Very grateful for it
One of my most popular apps. Very easy to use in partnership with the trip app
Very useful, easy and interactive 5/5
By Tipur Madan
I can filter my bus number and can set alarm. Also it shows the location of bus in map. Awesome. It helps me decide what time i need to leave from office and in situations where there are 2 buses for my destination and one of them takes longer route, so to decide if my preference 1 is not coming in next 10 min, then I can go with my preference 2
Really useful ! App has been improving with each release!
Daily commuter 5/5
I love the app....It's a must have!
I use this every day 4/5
Sure, it's not always 100% correct on bus locations, but it's pretty close, and improving all the time. I use public transit every day, often on new routes and/or times and this app is a rock-solid reference.
Very useful 5/5
One of the "must have" apps if you live in Seattle.
Generally pretty good 3/5
Pretty accurate for the most part. App still has some issue with phantom bussing( buses with the * that they make assumption on arrival times due to no transponder info). This is more an infrastructure problem then a app problem.
Go to app 5/5
I'm not sure what else you'd need if you use the bus in Seattle.
Daily commute lifesaver 5/5
I depend on OneBus for my daily commute. The maps are great for when you are changing things up. Time accuracy is only as reliable as the bus data, which varies with the route.
Does the job and does it well. Have used in Seattle for commuting daily for at least a couple of years. Sometimes I am frustrated by the inaccuracy of the bus schedules on certain routes but I would guess that this is caused by the data source -- in this case King County Metro -- than the app. Recommended!
Great app 5/5
Use it every day. Generally better than anything else that's out there.
