    App Name:
    OCT

    Summary:
    This app facilitates fetching OC Transpo transit schedule times for BlackBerry® 10 users.

    To use the app, in the main screen type in your 4-digit bus-stop (or type the name of a landmark like 'Billings Bridge'). From there choose your route # and OCT will show you the next three times when the bus is scheduled to be arrive at the stop.

    With your permission the app can also try to fetch real-time data on how far the bus is based on its last known GPS coordinates (your current location will be used to determine the distance).

    If you tug down on the arrival times list, you can also set a custom date/time to lookup the arrival times for. Simply change the value in the picker and you will get the updated data.

    You can now share any of those results with your contacts by either copying them to the clipboard or sharing them via BBM, Remember, Facebook, etc.

    In addition, you have the option of bookmarking your favourite route to quickly access it in the future when the app starts up.

    With the new update you can now view all the selective buses on your BB10 map relative to your position. You can also now find bus stops near your location on a map. It also now allows multiple bookmarks. Finally it shows you the type of bus (ie: 40-foot vs. 60-foot or double decker, if it has a bike rack, if it is wheelchair accessible).

    Agreed, that's why the app uses the bus's GPS coordinates to tell you more precisely where they are situated and an estimated time of arrival given their current average speed.
