    These Apps such as NextBus UK are mostly junk.
    The technology and software they use are outdated and unreliable.
    Occasionally you will be given a 'live time' arrival however when you refresh the App to get an update you are referred back to the timetable time.
    Don't waste your money on such Apps.

    I would be interested to know from the developers how I am able to track my friends mobile phone, some on the other side of the world within 5 metres using an App called 'Buddy Tracker' yet this 'real time' NextBus cannot even track a double decker bus 5 miles down the road.

    Don't feel too bad though, Bedfordshire County Council have just wasted over 200,000 on real time bus info that doesn't work.

    Here Transit simply gives a live countdown to the timetable time, not the live time.
    If you look at the screen shot below the App states that the '73' bus left 1 minute ago, when in fact it didn't even arrive until 15 minutes later.
    These apps are pretty shocking considering a small mobile phone can be tracked live within a few metres the other side of the world but a double decker bus cannot be tracked a few miles down the road.
    Councils in the U.K have wasted a criminal amount of tax payers money on these so called 'live' arrival times.
