Amazingly intuitive to use:► Tap stop markers to see info bubbles - tap the info bubbles to see the departures boards. ► Tap departures to show routes and journey times - choose to view on the map or as a list. (Note that this is probably the only app that can differentiate between route alternatives for the same service!)

► A to B route finder:Not sure which bus to take? You say from where, to where and when, let route finder do the rest.The Route Finder scans the timetables to find direct services between nearby stops and then shows you the best options, with from/to stops, departure and arrival times. Tap an option to show on the map. Easy!Drag down the route finder tab or access from the menu.

Tips:1. Switch on "Track me" to show your progress along a route - useful if you are not familiar with the route.

2. Tap the "disclosure" icon on the map info-bubbles to see more options for a stop (** now including departures for future date/times! **). Try "Long press" on the "Favourites" or "Recent" stop lists too.

4. To get the latest stop update, use the "Refresh" menu item on the map. Alternatively, use "Preferences-> Clear stops" to refresh all stops.

Travel information at its very best - never miss another bus!
