Description
Are you curious about where your MTA bus is in NYC? Now you can see where it is in real-time. Currently, the buses available via this service are limited, but the MTA is rolling this out to more buses soon. * Please note that not all MTA Buses are available. This is not a limitation of the busbus nyc app. The reason they are not included is that the MTA has not made this live data available yet on all bus lines.
My review
by 4519 4521 4539 4549 4559 4566 on 2020/10/20 12:29
Good morning this app is giving me some trouble because I can’t get to see the buses right now and I was planning on doing a bus marathon and writing them down . Can you fix this problem ? I still love this app and enjoy it . Ayden Merced
Blue Route line
by Midnight to 2020 on 2020/01/03 11:57
I actually like that blue line, it’s especially good later on at night or early in the morning when there are fewer buses out there on the road, you can go up and down the route quickly to see just how far that one or two buses that are out there on the route are. I am actually a NYC MTA Bus Operator with over 35 years of service and i also use the app for the job and we use it in another way, when we have to relieve another bus operator out there on the road that driver has a certain run number on that route so when we hit on one of those buses on that route not only can we see the bus number we can also see the run number which means we know exactly were the bus and driver is that we have to relieve and we know approximately were that bus is supposed to be on the route so we can see if the bus is going to be here on time or late and if he is going to be very late and we are near the depot or by the terminal we can go and get another bus from the dispatcher which helps the service out there. The blue line helps a lot especially when we have more than one route on the map so I love the app and the blue line, The only thing I just switch my phone from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 11 Pro Max and for some reason I can’t get the blue line anymore can you please help me and my co bus operator and see if this can be fixed, Thank you very much
Blue line -not good
by Cbkbk on 2019/11/25 21:41
I like the app but the addition of that blue line is annoying. You actually have to close the app to make it go away and then reopen so try not to activate one of the bus lines by touching it.
Some buses are missing
by diapearing on 2019/06/15 18:41
Some bus lines are missing from this version
Useless
by Bloubum on 2018/09/24 22:03
Don’t download this and if you did delete it from your phone. I will just cause you to miss the bus or wait for a bus that’s never coming. Over the few years I used the PAID version the lag time has gotten bigger and bigger. When I think the bus is 4 blocks away from my stop it already past me by about 3 blocks.
Greatest App of All Time
by Devsterroc1212 on 2017/12/13 21:01
100% Amazing app and works almost every time. They just released iPhone X support and that was the only problem I had. Therefore now, this app is AMAZING

Very good!
Helpful, but delayed reports of bus position
by Judyvla on 2017/05/27 13:21
This is very helpful out, particularly for the bus line I most use, the M5 in Manhattan. The bus is quick, but arrives sporadically, and it's helpful to know where the next one is. Unfortunately, the bus is shown at the stop it last passed, or perhaps stopped at. If it bypasses several stops, the position on the live bus map is quite inaccurate. I just dashed across the 112th St to catch a bus that was shown at 120th. In sum, way better than nothing, but more accurate reporting would be a big help.
Good app but needs one minor thing!
by Hazelheart1 on 2017/04/01 00:15
This is a great app but needs improvement. The best part is that it gives your the bus number. What needs improvement is that it's delayed which will cause you to miss your bus. What it needs is a refresh button to know where the bus is and to see it moving instead of leaving the app and getting back on again to track the bus.
I love bus bus
by Bcdhowie on 2017/01/29 17:53
I use it all the time. It is very accurate, slight delay in info coming from the gps's on the busses, but that's to be expected and you factor it in once you know. This app helped my life.
Trash
by Roncotton on 2016/09/16 14:58
Pointless app
So useful
by JLMDC on 2016/08/09 01:52
Thank you to the maker of this app - I use it almost daily! Incredibly useful and easy to use. Doesn't need bells and whistles; its simplicity is its best feature :)
Useful and simple
by Aleppohaleb on 2016/04/20 14:01
Works well. Only problem: bus #s are hard to see, with black font on a dark green background. Otherwise, good.
Best bus time app for NY.
by Topsnack on 2016/04/04 23:29
One of the best transit apps for NY.
Love this app
by Jim718111368 on 2016/03/09 08:18
I love how I can see where the bus is at, I wish they would update the app more often!!
Pretty good App
by Locojune on 2015/11/16 03:47
I have not had a bad experience with this App. Live in Brooklyn, and aside from missing or not registering a bus, pretty accurate.
Useless
by pennygoo on 2015/08/10 04:49
The map doesn't refresh when you are looking at it? Tried to use this app... it was more useful to use my eyes to find the bus. Furthermore, it doesn't tell you where the bus will go... just where it is. But what really really doesn't work here is that the font on the bus icons is just too small to read!!! it's useless!!
Not helpful
by Nyche21 on 2015/07/31 13:11
Most people travel around knowing how many minutes it take to get someplace like a certain bus stop. This app doesn't have it. A non-accurate map of where a bus was 4 minutes ago is useless for making it to a bus stop before that bus gets there. Useless.
BusBus!
by Wackadoodle on 2015/03/26 16:26
Awesome name, awesome app. So helpful just to SEE where the frickin bus is! Keep up the good work, and thanks for your efforts!
All buses instantly visible.
by Gothicsmurf on 2015/03/01 16:28
This is the absolute best way to easily handle the Brooklyn bus system. I use this app every day and it keeps getting better and better.
New update is great!
by S425 on 2015/02/28 03:12
This new update has seemingly sped up performance and the app runs even smoother than before. I have an iPhone 5S & my husband has a iPhone 6, and it works great on both phones. BusBus is really the best NYC bus app out there. I've tried them all, and this is the only one that is easy to use & completely reliable. I use this on an iPhone 5S, so for the reviewer who is saying that it's showing only 2 buses, it really means there really are only 2 buses (most likely if you're checking the app late at night or zoomed into an area with less bus traffic). The app is directly linked to MTA data so there's really never been any fault with the app itself. As a longtime NYC resident, I highly recommend using it, especially in the wintertime!! I love being able to wait indoors somewhere and run out to the bus just in time.
Laggy
by craigalanche on 2015/02/28 00:11
Lags a LOT, even on wifi, the bus is always several blocks farther along than it says it is. Garbage.
Excellent app
by rmvffrankenberg on 2015/02/26 00:08
Very accurate. Especially useful when the bus map states the bus should have arrived but isn't there.
Is this app available on Andriod?
by Yudi111 on 2015/01/09 14:14
I love this app on iOS. Is this app available on Andriod?
Update Nightmare.
by Sega77 on 2015/01/09 08:37
After updating all the buses disappeared (iPhone 5s). It's only showing two buses. Please fix it, asap. This app is very useful for me.
What Happened??!! - back to working
by sundevilgrad on 2014/12/26 05:08
I depended on this app daily. It stopped working. No buses are showing up no matter what I do. I'll give 5-Stars when it's functional again. Edit: the issue is fixed. Back to 5 stars.
Love it
by Stevencastro on 2014/12/25 05:44
As a NYC MTA transit fan, I love the app it shows where the bus is when it's close by but what I wish it would have is the refresh time can be reduced so the bus position can be reloaded more quickly. And also it would have the option to type bus numbers for the bus fans who know that much about the buses.
Incredible
by CaptHarlock on 2014/12/23 23:46
Possibly the most practical app I have.
Best app ever
by 0_07 on 2014/12/23 16:09
The app does what it says and people are promptly responsive to email feedback. I'm loving the timely replies.
Used to work
by Srmarathon on 2014/12/18 19:24
BusBus does not work with the latest iPad upgrade. It was great before the upgrade. FIX IT! PLEASE.
Used to be great
by Dantevolta on 2014/12/17 22:51
For the iPhone 5s, this app worked great! However, now that I upgraded to an iPhone 6 plus, all of the buses have disappeared! Not good!
Great useful app
by NicoleAAAAAA on 2014/10/22 00:04
This app is great for any New Yorker on the go and a sure thing to help (hopefully) you make in on time whether for work, school or any other engagements. However does not give you details Of Detours or any delays
Useful for finding best bus route in realtime.
by DoggieDaddi on 2014/10/20 12:50
Useful in NYC and fun. Especially when you have a choice between to bus routes, or walking instead, this app makes it easy to see the best choice. And it's like watching a bizarre bus race around Manhattan.
I love this app
by Mariana85Z on 2014/10/12 00:22
In love with BusBus NYC... It's just amazing! You can see literally the bus moving to your stop, which is great.
Woooouuuuu

Great BusBus
by AvalonNYC on 2014/07/16 15:16
I will actually wait for the bus now that I know where it is. Before, I'd take a cab or a train or just walk.
Almost great
by Jazzmom1017 on 2014/05/29 17:19
I love how helpful this app can be. But it seems that the buses are delayed on here compared to where they really are by a block or two. It's never 90% or more accurate. More accurate locations of where the bus is could make this perfect. Thank you
Best out there
by wjenett on 2014/05/20 21:07
Still not perfectly timed, at least for me in northern Brooklyn. But you can learn to correct it on your own, and this app is by far the best there is. Incredibly useful, obvs.
Incredible
by Gamedeveloper on 2014/05/12 23:21
This app has saved me sooo much time that would normally be wasted waiting. The new version is very stable and works much more smoothly. Recommended!
Sometimes helpful but not 100% reliable
by Pestonyc on 2014/05/05 11:47
At first I thought this was the answer to my long time wish to track the mta bus lines. But I have noticed not all busses are outfitted for GPS. Or if they are, it must be turned off. Many times a bus is mislabeled (tagged) or it doesn't appear on the app at all.
I love bus bus
by Lilygxo on 2014/05/04 04:24
I really love this app! So far it has been on point and hasn't let me down !
Really Useful
by EnderChad on 2014/05/02 12:17
This is a perfect app for a student like me because it shows me exactly where the bus is visually unlike MTA Bus Time, which gives the information in just words, which make it difficult to visualize.
Technology has finally arrived
by Narasarh on 2014/04/26 03:39
It's about time we have real-time route info. Love this app
Refresh?
by Anthony890 on 2014/04/15 19:14
If there is a "Refresh" button, why doesn't it work almost ALL THE TIME!?! I click refresh and nothing happens. Everything stays the same. Unlike the MTA Bus Time site, it actually works. But this crap doesn't. Fix Please!!!!
Nice App
by Sue R 52 on 2014/04/05 21:55
I like using this app, but it keeps crashing. I hope this is fixed on next update.
The name of this app says it all
by dnklatt on 2014/04/05 16:06
If you want to ride the normal bus and only feel like you *think* the bus is coming, that's cool. But if you have places to be and you'd rather just know, so you can get on with life, get yourself some Bus Bus NYC.
Bus bus

It freezes a lot
Best NYC bus time app (but it crashes)
by Sebstop on 2014/03/29 01:12
I'm a New Yorker. I love this app. I've been using it since bus time started. It shows you up to date tracking of buses better than the MTA site. Lately it's been crashing a lot. I've looked for an app that would be just as good or even a little bit less but they all are much worse. This app shows you where the busses are at so you can use your own judgement on if you can catch it or not. I will upgrade to the paid app to see if the crashing. I'll let you know.. I would have gave this app 4 stars because it keeps crashing now but it had been so reliable in the past I have it at a 5.
Nice idea; not ready for prime time
by West End Al on 2014/03/25 00:40
Slow to load, slow to refresh, fast to crash or freeze.
Great concept, needs some bug fixes

Very nice app, is a little slow but is a great start , went you click on the route you actually watching it tells you the time it was at that location , so I kind of know most likely were the bus should be.... Super nice Thank You MTA
Very Cool
by WaterConsNYC on 2014/03/08 17:00
What’s really great is that the MTA is instituting realtime bus information. The fact that my humble local route the Q54 is now included is a pleasant surprise. This app is a fine implementation of the service. There’s lot of information on bus routes, you can filter routes and the information is well organized. At least for a while people are going to open the app just to watch the buses move in more-or-less realtime. Well worth the 99 cents to get rid of the ads since this is an app you’ll use every day.
Thx
by Love These Game on 2014/02/25 01:48

Nice app!
by Vincentnyc on 2014/01/11 15:02
Very cool app to have to find out where all the buses in Manhattan in real live time. Right now it only have have Manhattan and certain part of Brooklyn. Hope they expand to all of the boroughs too!
Great, but no stops!
by mckenzmie on 2014/01/09 23:41
Love the app, but wish it would show where the actual bus stops are!
Good app, would like additional features
by Mark hunter parish on 2014/01/05 00:03
It would be great if you could restrict the map to the routes that you travel regularly so you don't have to see all buses. But works well otherwise.
Love it
by BearLexi on 2013/12/26 16:38
I downloaded this app about 3 months ago and use it anytime I take the bus. I take a bus that is infrequent and unreliable with its schedule. I now know exactly when to leave my apartment. Very helpful in the winter/bad weather.
Only Q50 in Queens. No other Queens buses.
by Cabbie110 on 2013/12/24 18:28

What a Godsend!!!

No more endlessly waiting in rain or freezing cold for a bus that never runs as scheduled. Check app and leave the house when a bus is approaching. Fantastic!

Finally, a Real-Time Tracker

Why there aren't more apps like this I don't know. Great real time tracking of busses all on one map.
M-15 added!

It's Awesome now that they added the N-15
Lame
by M.r.davies on 2013/10/14 22:22
Was excited to try this however the bus I'm riding at the moment has no GPS chip ( m20) the driver told me all the m-20's don't have chips. Come on MTA, how hard could this be!! LAZY
Great app

The only app I can find that shows me all buses on a map in real time. Great!
Five stars when the MTA expands tracking to Queens..

Great idea, but does not seem to work in Manhattan

I really want this to work, and perhaps it does in the outer boroughs, but most M buses are not included.
No star
by reggie58 on 2013/09/11 18:57
This app is terrible not easy to use ...
Please Include ALL other MTA BUSES
by Foodyclicker on 2013/08/22 17:36
It would be best if it included all buses so I can time myself for the commute
No Manhattan yet!
by TechyBanker on 2013/07/06 03:14
Don't download yet if you need any Manhattan bus lines other than 34th street - the MTA will release more lines soon but they aren't available yet as of July 2013. Just wanted to save you download time in case you need Manhattan bus line info. Otherwise, seems like a great app.
Great App...

Helpful, but delayed reports of bus position
by Judyvla on 2017/05/27 13:21
This is very helpful out, particularly for the bus line I most use, the M5 in Manhattan. The bus is quick, but arrives sporadically, and it's helpful to know where the next one is. Unfortunately, the bus is shown at the stop it last passed, or perhaps stopped at. If it bypasses several stops, the position on the live bus map is quite inaccurate. I just dashed across the 112th St to catch a bus that was shown at 120th. In sum, way better than nothing, but more accurate reporting would be a big help.

by TechyBanker on 2013/07/06 03:14
Don't download yet if you need any Manhattan bus lines other than 34th street - the MTA will release more lines soon but they aren't available yet as of July 2013. Just wanted to save you download time in case you need Manhattan bus line info. Otherwise, seems like a great app.
What Happened??!! - back to working
by sundevilgrad on 2014/12/26 05:08
I depended on this app daily. It stopped working. No buses are showing up no matter what I do. I'll give 5-Stars when it's functional again. Edit: the issue is fixed. Back to 5 stars.
Useful for finding best bus route in realtime.
by DoggieDaddi on 2014/10/20 12:50
Useful in NYC and fun. Especially when you have a choice between to bus routes, or walking instead, this app makes it easy to see the best choice. And it's like watching a bizarre bus race around Manhattan.
Really Useful
by EnderChad on 2014/05/02 12:17
This is a perfect app for a student like me because it shows me exactly where the bus is visually unlike MTA Bus Time, which gives the information in just words, which make it difficult to visualize.
Love it
by BearLexi on 2013/12/26 16:38
I downloaded this app about 3 months ago and use it anytime I take the bus. I take a bus that is infrequent and unreliable with its schedule. I now know exactly when to leave my apartment. Very helpful in the winter/bad weather.
Super nice
by R32lover0 on 2014/03/10 14:45
Very nice app, is a little slow but is a great start , went you click on the route you actually watching it tells you the time it was at that location , so I kind of know most likely were the bus should be.... Super nice Thank You MTA
I love bus bus
by Bcdhowie on 2017/01/29 17:53
I use it all the time. It is very accurate, slight delay in info coming from the gps's on the busses, but that's to be expected and you factor it in once you know. This app helped my life.
Good app, would like additional features
by Mark hunter parish on 2014/01/05 00:03
It would be great if you could restrict the map to the routes that you travel regularly so you don't have to see all buses. But works well otherwise.
Nice app!
by Vincentnyc on 2014/01/11 15:02
Very cool app to have to find out where all the buses in Manhattan in real live time. Right now it only have have Manhattan and certain part of Brooklyn. Hope they expand to all of the boroughs too!
Almost great
by Jazzmom1017 on 2014/05/29 17:19
I love how helpful this app can be. But it seems that the buses are delayed on here compared to where they really are by a block or two. It's never 90% or more accurate. More accurate locations of where the bus is could make this perfect. Thank you
Incredible
by Gamedeveloper on 2014/05/12 23:21
This app has saved me sooo much time that would normally be wasted waiting. The new version is very stable and works much more smoothly. Recommended!
So useful
by JLMDC on 2016/08/09 01:52
Thank you to the maker of this app - I use it almost daily! Incredibly useful and easy to use. Doesn't need bells and whistles; its simplicity is its best feature :)
The name of this app says it all
by dnklatt on 2014/04/05 16:06
If you want to ride the normal bus and only feel like you *think* the bus is coming, that's cool. But if you have places to be and you'd rather just know, so you can get on with life, get yourself some Bus Bus NYC.
Great useful app
by NicoleAAAAAA on 2014/10/22 00:04
This app is great for any New Yorker on the go and a sure thing to help (hopefully) you make in on time whether for work, school or any other engagements. However does not give you details Of Detours or any delays
All buses instantly visible.
by Gothicsmurf on 2015/03/01 16:28
This is the absolute best way to easily handle the Brooklyn bus system. I use this app every day and it keeps getting better and better.
Best out there
by wjenett on 2014/05/20 21:07
Still not perfectly timed, at least for me in northern Brooklyn. But you can learn to correct it on your own, and this app is by far the best there is. Incredibly useful, obvs.
What a Godsend!!!
by mbar76 on 2013/12/03 01:02
No more endlessly waiting in rain or freezing cold for a bus that never runs as scheduled. Check app and leave the house when a bus is approaching. Fantastic!
Useless
by pennygoo on 2015/08/10 04:49
The map doesn't refresh when you are looking at it? Tried to use this app... it was more useful to use my eyes to find the bus. Furthermore, it doesn't tell you where the bus will go... just where it is. But what really really doesn't work here is that the font on the bus icons is just too small to read!!! it's useless!!
Excellent app
by rmvffrankenberg on 2015/02/26 00:08
Very accurate. Especially useful when the bus map states the bus should have arrived but isn't there.
Pretty good App
by Locojune on 2015/11/16 03:47
I have not had a bad experience with this App. Live in Brooklyn, and aside from missing or not registering a bus, pretty accurate.
Useful and simple
by Aleppohaleb on 2016/04/20 14:01
Works well. Only problem: bus #s are hard to see, with black font on a dark green background. Otherwise, good.
Nice App
by Sue R 52 on 2014/04/05 21:55
I like using this app, but it keeps crashing. I hope this is fixed on next update.
Love this app
by Jim718111368 on 2016/03/09 08:18
I love how I can see where the bus is at, I wish they would update the app more often!!
Finally, a Real-Time Tracker
by CorbinK on 2013/10/24 21:30
Why there aren't more apps like this I don't know. Great real time tracking of busses all on one map.
Technology has finally arrived
by Narasarh on 2014/04/26 03:39
It's about time we have real-time route info. Love this app
Not helpful
by Nyche21 on 2015/07/31 13:11
Most people travel around knowing how many minutes it take to get someplace like a certain bus stop. This app doesn't have it. A non-accurate map of where a bus was 4 minutes ago is useless for making it to a bus stop before that bus gets there. Useless.
Sometimes helpful but not 100% reliable
by Pestonyc on 2014/05/05 11:47
At first I thought this was the answer to my long time wish to track the mta bus lines. But I have noticed not all busses are outfitted for GPS. Or if they are, it must be turned off. Many times a bus is mislabeled (tagged) or it doesn't appear on the app at all.
Refresh?
by Anthony890 on 2014/04/15 19:14
If there is a "Refresh" button, why doesn't it work almost ALL THE TIME!?! I click refresh and nothing happens. Everything stays the same. Unlike the MTA Bus Time site, it actually works. But this crap doesn't. Fix Please!!!!
Great BusBus
by AvalonNYC on 2014/07/16 15:16
I will actually wait for the bus now that I know where it is. Before, I'd take a cab or a train or just walk.
Good app but crashes
by OnO13 on 2014/03/18 17:33
It has its potential, but it keeps crashing every time after 2 seconds from opening.
Loooove it!!!

Perfect bus app for NYC
by sehawkin on 2013/11/12 18:55
Does everything you could ask of a bus program for NYC.
Not so great
by Bus hopeful on 2013/03/30 15:46
Didn't show whole lines, even when I was on a bus! Worked well one out of four times. I had such high hopes. Also seems to close out app while trying to use it
Life saver

Description
Are you curious about where your MTA bus is in NYC? Now you can see where it is in real-time. Currently, the buses available via this service are limited, but the MTA is rolling this out to more buses soon. * Please note that not all MTA Buses are available. This is not a limitation of the busbus nyc app. The reason they are not included is that the MTA has not made this live data available yet on all bus lines.
My review
by 4519 4521 4539 4549 4559 4566 on 2020/10/20 12:29
Good morning this app is giving me some trouble because I can’t get to see the buses right now and I was planning on doing a bus marathon and writing them down . Can you fix this problem ? I still love this app and enjoy it . Ayden Merced
Blue Route line
by Midnight to 2020 on 2020/01/03 11:57
I actually like that blue line, it’s especially good later on at night or early in the morning when there are fewer buses out there on the road, you can go up and down the route quickly to see just how far that one or two buses that are out there on the route are. I am actually a NYC MTA Bus Operator with over 35 years of service and i also use the app for the job and we use it in another way, when we have to relieve another bus operator out there on the road that driver has a certain run number on that route so when we hit on one of those buses on that route not only can we see the bus number we can also see the run number which means we know exactly were the bus and driver is that we have to relieve and we know approximately were that bus is supposed to be on the route so we can see if the bus is going to be here on time or late and if he is going to be very late and we are near the depot or by the terminal we can go and get another bus from the dispatcher which helps the service out there. The blue line helps a lot especially when we have more than one route on the map so I love the app and the blue line, The only thing I just switch my phone from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 11 Pro Max and for some reason I can’t get the blue line anymore can you please help me and my co bus operator and see if this can be fixed, Thank you very much
Blue line -not good
by Cbkbk on 2019/11/25 21:41
I like the app but the addition of that blue line is annoying. You actually have to close the app to make it go away and then reopen so try not to activate one of the bus lines by touching it.
Some buses are missing
by diapearing on 2019/06/15 18:41
Some bus lines are missing from this version
Useless
by Bloubum on 2018/09/24 22:03
Don’t download this and if you did delete it from your phone. I will just cause you to miss the bus or wait for a bus that’s never coming. Over the few years I used the PAID version the lag time has gotten bigger and bigger. When I think the bus is 4 blocks away from my stop it already past me by about 3 blocks.
Greatest App of All Time
by Devsterroc1212 on 2017/12/13 21:01
100% Amazing app and works almost every time. They just released iPhone X support and that was the only problem I had. Therefore now, this app is AMAZING

Helpful, but delayed reports of bus position
by Judyvla on 2017/05/27 13:21
This is very helpful out, particularly for the bus line I most use, the M5 in Manhattan. The bus is quick, but arrives sporadically, and it's helpful to know where the next one is. Unfortunately, the bus is shown at the stop it last passed, or perhaps stopped at. If it bypasses several stops, the position on the live bus map is quite inaccurate. I just dashed across the 112th St to catch a bus that was shown at 120th. In sum, way better than nothing, but more accurate reporting would be a big help.
Good app but needs one minor thing!
by Hazelheart1 on 2017/04/01 00:15
This is a great app but needs improvement. The best part is that it gives your the bus number. What needs improvement is that it's delayed which will cause you to miss your bus. What it needs is a refresh button to know where the bus is and to see it moving instead of leaving the app and getting back on again to track the bus.
I love bus bus

New update is great!
by S425 on 2015/02/28 03:12
This new update has seemingly sped up performance and the app runs even smoother than before. I have an iPhone 5S & my husband has a iPhone 6, and it works great on both phones. BusBus is really the best NYC bus app out there. I've tried them all, and this is the only one that is easy to use & completely reliable. I use this on an iPhone 5S, so for the reviewer who is saying that it's showing only 2 buses, it really means there really are only 2 buses (most likely if you're checking the app late at night or zoomed into an area with less bus traffic). The app is directly linked to MTA data so there's really never been any fault with the app itself. As a longtime NYC resident, I highly recommend using it, especially in the wintertime!! I love being able to wait indoors somewhere and run out to the bus just in time.
Laggy
by craigalanche on 2015/02/28 00:11
Lags a LOT, even on wifi, the bus is always several blocks farther along than it says it is. Garbage.

As a NYC MTA transit fan, I love the app it shows where the bus is when it's close by but what I wish it would have is the refresh time can be reduced so the bus position can be reloaded more quickly. And also it would have the option to type bus numbers for the bus fans who know that much about the buses.

by Sebstop on 2014/03/29 01:12
I'm a New Yorker. I love this app. I've been using it since bus time started. It shows you up to date tracking of buses better than the MTA site. Lately it's been crashing a lot. I've looked for an app that would be just as good or even a little bit less but they all are much worse. This app shows you where the busses are at so you can use your own judgement on if you can catch it or not. I will upgrade to the paid app to see if the crashing. I'll let you know.. I would have gave this app 4 stars because it keeps crashing now but it had been so reliable in the past I have it at a 5.

Very Cool
by WaterConsNYC on 2014/03/08 17:00
What’s really great is that the MTA is instituting realtime bus information. The fact that my humble local route the Q54 is now included is a pleasant surprise. This app is a fine implementation of the service. There’s lot of information on bus routes, you can filter routes and the information is well organized. At least for a while people are going to open the app just to watch the buses move in more-or-less realtime. Well worth the 99 cents to get rid of the ads since this is an app you’ll use every day.
Thx

by mbar76 on 2013/12/03 01:02
No more endlessly waiting in rain or freezing cold for a bus that never runs as scheduled. Check app and leave the house when a bus is approaching. Fantastic!
Life changing

Very easy to use
Perfect bus app for NYC
by sehawkin on 2013/11/12 18:55
Does everything you could ask of a bus program for NYC.
Finally, a Real-Time Tracker
by CorbinK on 2013/10/24 21:30
Why there aren't more apps like this I don't know. Great real time tracking of busses all on one map.
M-15 added!
by Stefano1966 on 2013/10/24 02:32
It's Awesome now that they added the N-15
Lame
by M.r.davies on 2013/10/14 22:22
Was excited to try this however the bus I'm riding at the moment has no GPS chip ( m20) the driver told me all the m-20's don't have chips. Come on MTA, how hard could this be!! LAZY
Great app
by musicFan228 on 2013/10/14 21:25
The only app I can find that shows me all buses on a map in real time. Great!
Five stars when the MTA expands tracking to Queens..
by Rschle6470 on 2013/09/25 13:08
....especially, the Q36!
It Works!
by DAndraM on 2013/09/21 22:16
Fantastic! Works like a charm.
Great idea, but does not seem to work in Manhattan
by Lef2009 on 2013/09/17 21:22
I really want this to work, and perhaps it does in the outer boroughs, but most M buses are not included.
No star
by reggie58 on 2013/09/11 18:57
This app is terrible not easy to use ...
Please Include ALL other MTA BUSES
by Foodyclicker on 2013/08/22 17:36
It would be best if it included all buses so I can time myself for the commute
No Manhattan yet!
by TechyBanker on 2013/07/06 03:14
Don't download yet if you need any Manhattan bus lines other than 34th street - the MTA will release more lines soon but they aren't available yet as of July 2013. Just wanted to save you download time in case you need Manhattan bus line info. Otherwise, seems like a great app.
Great App...

Love it!
by Dreamindiva on 2013/04/15 14:54
Helps my travels tremendously! Love this app!
Not so great
by Bus hopeful on 2013/03/30 15:46
Didn't show whole lines, even when I was on a bus! Worked well one out of four times. I had such high hopes. Also seems to close out app while trying to use it
Excelent
by 29/07/11 on 2012/12/12 06:13
could increase the direction of the bus
Blue line -not good
by Cbkbk on 2019/11/25 21:41
I like the app but the addition of that blue line is annoying. You actually have to close the app to make it go away and then reopen so try not to activate one of the bus lines by touching it.
Blue Route line
by Midnight to 2020 on 2020/01/03 11:57
I actually like that blue line, it’s especially good later on at night or early in the morning when there are fewer buses out there on the road, you can go up and down the route quickly to see just how far that one or two buses that are out there on the route are. I am actually a NYC MTA Bus Operator with over 35 years of service and i also use the app for the job and we use it in another way, when we have to relieve another bus operator out there on the road that driver has a certain run number on that route so when we hit on one of those buses on that route not only can we see the bus number we can also see the run number which means we know exactly were the bus and driver is that we have to relieve and we know approximately were that bus is supposed to be on the route so we can see if the bus is going to be here on time or late and if he is going to be very late and we are near the depot or by the terminal we can go and get another bus from the dispatcher which helps the service out there. The blue line helps a lot especially when we have more than one route on the map so I love the app and the blue line, The only thing I just switch my phone from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 11 Pro Max and for some reason I can’t get the blue line anymore can you please help me and my co bus operator and see if this can be fixed, Thank you very much
My review
by 4519 4521 4539 4549 4559 4566 on 2020/10/20 12:29
Good morning this app is giving me some trouble because I can’t get to see the buses right now and I was planning on doing a bus marathon and writing them down . Can you fix this problem ? I still love this app and enjoy it . Ayden Merced
Greatest App of All Time
by Devsterroc1212 on 2017/12/13 21:01
100% Amazing app and works almost every time. They just released iPhone X support and that was the only problem I had. Therefore now, this app is AMAZING
Useless
by Bloubum on 2018/09/24 22:03
Don’t download this and if you did delete it from your phone. I will just cause you to miss the bus or wait for a bus that’s never coming. Over the few years I used the PAID version the lag time has gotten bigger and bigger. When I think the bus is 4 blocks away from my stop it already past me by about 3 blocks.
Very Cool
by WaterConsNYC on 2014/03/08 17:00
What’s really great is that the MTA is instituting realtime bus information. The fact that my humble local route the Q54 is now included is a pleasant surprise. This app is a fine implementation of the service. There’s lot of information on bus routes, you can filter routes and the information is well organized. At least for a while people are going to open the app just to watch the buses move in more-or-less realtime. Well worth the 99 cents to get rid of the ads since this is an app you’ll use every day.
Some buses are missing
by diapearing on 2019/06/15 18:41
Some bus lines are missing from this version

Best NYC bus time app (but it crashes)
by Sebstop on 2014/03/29 01:12
I'm a New Yorker. I love this app. I've been using it since bus time started. It shows you up to date tracking of buses better than the MTA site. Lately it's been crashing a lot. I've looked for an app that would be just as good or even a little bit less but they all are much worse. This app shows you where the busses are at so you can use your own judgement on if you can catch it or not. I will upgrade to the paid app to see if the crashing. I'll let you know.. I would have gave this app 4 stars because it keeps crashing now but it had been so reliable in the past I have it at a 5.
New update is great!
by S425 on 2015/02/28 03:12
This new update has seemingly sped up performance and the app runs even smoother than before. I have an iPhone 5S & my husband has a iPhone 6, and it works great on both phones. BusBus is really the best NYC bus app out there. I've tried them all, and this is the only one that is easy to use & completely reliable. I use this on an iPhone 5S, so for the reviewer who is saying that it's showing only 2 buses, it really means there really are only 2 buses (most likely if you're checking the app late at night or zoomed into an area with less bus traffic). The app is directly linked to MTA data so there's really never been any fault with the app itself. As a longtime NYC resident, I highly recommend using it, especially in the wintertime!! I love being able to wait indoors somewhere and run out to the bus just in time.
Good app but needs one minor thing!
by Hazelheart1 on 2017/04/01 00:15
This is a great app but needs improvement. The best part is that it gives your the bus number. What needs improvement is that it's delayed which will cause you to miss your bus. What it needs is a refresh button to know where the bus is and to see it moving instead of leaving the app and getting back on again to track the bus.
Helpful, but delayed reports of bus position
by Judyvla on 2017/05/27 13:21
This is very helpful out, particularly for the bus line I most use, the M5 in Manhattan. The bus is quick, but arrives sporadically, and it's helpful to know where the next one is. Unfortunately, the bus is shown at the stop it last passed, or perhaps stopped at. If it bypasses several stops, the position on the live bus map is quite inaccurate. I just dashed across the 112th St to catch a bus that was shown at 120th. In sum, way better than nothing, but more accurate reporting would be a big help.
Love it
by Stevencastro on 2014/12/25 05:44
As a NYC MTA transit fan, I love the app it shows where the bus is when it's close by but what I wish it would have is the refresh time can be reduced so the bus position can be reloaded more quickly. And also it would have the option to type bus numbers for the bus fans who know that much about the buses.
No Manhattan yet!
by TechyBanker on 2013/07/06 03:14
Don't download yet if you need any Manhattan bus lines other than 34th street - the MTA will release more lines soon but they aren't available yet as of July 2013. Just wanted to save you download time in case you need Manhattan bus line info. Otherwise, seems like a great app.
What Happened??!! - back to working
by sundevilgrad on 2014/12/26 05:08
I depended on this app daily. It stopped working. No buses are showing up no matter what I do. I'll give 5-Stars when it's functional again. Edit: the issue is fixed. Back to 5 stars.
Useful for finding best bus route in realtime.
by DoggieDaddi on 2014/10/20 12:50
Useful in NYC and fun. Especially when you have a choice between to bus routes, or walking instead, this app makes it easy to see the best choice. And it's like watching a bizarre bus race around Manhattan.
Really Useful
by EnderChad on 2014/05/02 12:17
This is a perfect app for a student like me because it shows me exactly where the bus is visually unlike MTA Bus Time, which gives the information in just words, which make it difficult to visualize.
Love it
by BearLexi on 2013/12/26 16:38
I downloaded this app about 3 months ago and use it anytime I take the bus. I take a bus that is infrequent and unreliable with its schedule. I now know exactly when to leave my apartment. Very helpful in the winter/bad weather.
Super nice
by R32lover0 on 2014/03/10 14:45
Very nice app, is a little slow but is a great start , went you click on the route you actually watching it tells you the time it was at that location , so I kind of know most likely were the bus should be.... Super nice Thank You MTA
I love bus bus
by Bcdhowie on 2017/01/29 17:53
I use it all the time. It is very accurate, slight delay in info coming from the gps's on the busses, but that's to be expected and you factor it in once you know. This app helped my life.
Good app, would like additional features
by Mark hunter parish on 2014/01/05 00:03
It would be great if you could restrict the map to the routes that you travel regularly so you don't have to see all buses. But works well otherwise.
Nice app!
by Vincentnyc on 2014/01/11 15:02
Very cool app to have to find out where all the buses in Manhattan in real live time. Right now it only have have Manhattan and certain part of Brooklyn. Hope they expand to all of the boroughs too!
Almost great
by Jazzmom1017 on 2014/05/29 17:19
I love how helpful this app can be. But it seems that the buses are delayed on here compared to where they really are by a block or two. It's never 90% or more accurate. More accurate locations of where the bus is could make this perfect. Thank you
Incredible
by Gamedeveloper on 2014/05/12 23:21
This app has saved me sooo much time that would normally be wasted waiting. The new version is very stable and works much more smoothly. Recommended!
So useful
by JLMDC on 2016/08/09 01:52
Thank you to the maker of this app - I use it almost daily! Incredibly useful and easy to use. Doesn't need bells and whistles; its simplicity is its best feature :)
The name of this app says it all
by dnklatt on 2014/04/05 16:06
If you want to ride the normal bus and only feel like you *think* the bus is coming, that's cool. But if you have places to be and you'd rather just know, so you can get on with life, get yourself some Bus Bus NYC.
Great useful app
by NicoleAAAAAA on 2014/10/22 00:04
This app is great for any New Yorker on the go and a sure thing to help (hopefully) you make in on time whether for work, school or any other engagements. However does not give you details Of Detours or any delays
All buses instantly visible.
by Gothicsmurf on 2015/03/01 16:28
This is the absolute best way to easily handle the Brooklyn bus system. I use this app every day and it keeps getting better and better.
Best out there
by wjenett on 2014/05/20 21:07
Still not perfectly timed, at least for me in northern Brooklyn. But you can learn to correct it on your own, and this app is by far the best there is. Incredibly useful, obvs.
What a Godsend!!!
by mbar76 on 2013/12/03 01:02
No more endlessly waiting in rain or freezing cold for a bus that never runs as scheduled. Check app and leave the house when a bus is approaching. Fantastic!
Useless
by pennygoo on 2015/08/10 04:49
The map doesn't refresh when you are looking at it? Tried to use this app... it was more useful to use my eyes to find the bus. Furthermore, it doesn't tell you where the bus will go... just where it is. But what really really doesn't work here is that the font on the bus icons is just too small to read!!! it's useless!!
Excellent app
by rmvffrankenberg on 2015/02/26 00:08
Very accurate. Especially useful when the bus map states the bus should have arrived but isn't there.
Pretty good App
by Locojune on 2015/11/16 03:47
I have not had a bad experience with this App. Live in Brooklyn, and aside from missing or not registering a bus, pretty accurate.
Useful and simple
by Aleppohaleb on 2016/04/20 14:01
Works well. Only problem: bus #s are hard to see, with black font on a dark green background. Otherwise, good.
Nice App
by Sue R 52 on 2014/04/05 21:55
I like using this app, but it keeps crashing. I hope this is fixed on next update.
Love this app
by Jim718111368 on 2016/03/09 08:18
I love how I can see where the bus is at, I wish they would update the app more often!!
Finally, a Real-Time Tracker
by CorbinK on 2013/10/24 21:30
Why there aren't more apps like this I don't know. Great real time tracking of busses all on one map.
Technology has finally arrived
by Narasarh on 2014/04/26 03:39
It's about time we have real-time route info. Love this app
Not helpful
by Nyche21 on 2015/07/31 13:11
Most people travel around knowing how many minutes it take to get someplace like a certain bus stop. This app doesn't have it. A non-accurate map of where a bus was 4 minutes ago is useless for making it to a bus stop before that bus gets there. Useless.
Sometimes helpful but not 100% reliable
by Pestonyc on 2014/05/05 11:47
At first I thought this was the answer to my long time wish to track the mta bus lines. But I have noticed not all busses are outfitted for GPS. Or if they are, it must be turned off. Many times a bus is mislabeled (tagged) or it doesn't appear on the app at all.
Refresh?
by Anthony890 on 2014/04/15 19:14
If there is a "Refresh" button, why doesn't it work almost ALL THE TIME!?! I click refresh and nothing happens. Everything stays the same. Unlike the MTA Bus Time site, it actually works. But this crap doesn't. Fix Please!!!!
Great BusBus
by AvalonNYC on 2014/07/16 15:16
I will actually wait for the bus now that I know where it is. Before, I'd take a cab or a train or just walk.
Good app but crashes
by OnO13 on 2014/03/18 17:33
It has its potential, but it keeps crashing every time after 2 seconds from opening.
Loooove it!!!
by NoTimes on 2014/01/12 22:05
Makes life so much easier. A must have if you ride the bus often.
Incredible
by CaptHarlock on 2014/12/23 23:46
Possibly the most practical app I have.
I love this app
by Mariana85Z on 2014/10/12 00:22
In love with BusBus NYC... It's just amazing! You can see literally the bus moving to your stop, which is great.
Perfect bus app for NYC
