London commuters (yes commuters, not commoners) now have a way to check if their bus is arriving at any of the 20,000 bus stops throughout London. Through your Android smartphone device, you can now check the Buschecker app and see if you are going to be late on your bus.
According to FatAttitude LTD. (the app developer), the app is UK’s best selling travel app. Apart from the paid version, there is a lite version which allows users to test drive the app for 30 days and use its full features. The paid version only costs $1.95 with features including:
Real-time GPS map of nearest bus stops
Live, updated countdown display of bus arrivals
Full route maps of all London Bus Routes
Service information (diversions, closures, cancellations)
Tap on bus numbers to filter list
Home screen widget- live arrivals of favorite stops
Detailed bus stop information (route, map location, direction)
Map/route number display
This is certainly a great app for anyone traveling in the UK!
