    I live in Vancouver, Canada, and I have been using an app called "Transit DB" from Android for looking at bus routes and arrival times. It simply gives me a scheduled arrival time at a bus station.

    I am just wondering if there are any reliable public transit app with not only the scheduled arrival time, but also real time tracking for buses. I talked to a girl at a bus station last night and she told me about a tracking app on her Iphone

    Anyways, if you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    I have access to Snap, as well as Amazon app store, but I would obviously prefer BlackBerry World.

    Hi again...
    I answered on your Amzon request...
    The surprise is this: the App is free in BB-world! Here's a screenshot

    And if you are in YYZ they have a TTC native transit app as well. Montreal as a few others including NYC, London UK all have their own real-time apps in BlackBerry World.

    EDIT: I think the BB10 version is only for Toronto. But the Android version does other cities.

    Edit again: Android version does work on my device.

    I haven't tried it personally, but there's an app on Google Play called LiveTransit Vancouver that's suppose to offer real time GPS locations.

    It is a great app!

    I emailed the developer and asked if he was going to update it to include transit info for Mississauga and York Region and he said no as he does not have the time to update it based on the limited # of downloads. I was planning on downloading the Android version since it has this but it doesn't sound like it works based on what another poster has said above.

    Can't you use Google Maps? That's what I use for buses, trains, etc in the UK.

    That's so sad to hear. This is where the BlackBerry issues come up. No support on even existing apps

    It's not so bad. At least we have a functioning native app that has all the TTC buses. York Region and Mississauga is definite nice to have. Hopefully one day soon it will be worth the devs time to update the native BB version.

    Rocketman doesn't work properly on my Z30.

    Just check out the NextBus mobile site, or use Nokia maps, both from the browser, no need for apps.

    Sorry to revive an old thread, just wanted to mention another Android option here: Transit App

    It has real-time tracking for bus systems that offer it. Also, the bus schedules are all stored offline so you can look up schedules/stops near you even if you have no internet connection.

    Only downside is that it relies on Google Maps Service, so it needs to be patched with Cobalt's Play Services Patcher Tool with a custom Google Maps Android API Key. And you'll need Cobalt's other patched Google Services installed as well, of course.

    Here is the version I patched May 25, 2016 with a custom API key. Feel free to use it!

    Transit 1.0.0.3384
