Never miss your stop on the night bus again

Posted at 6:00 pm, November 5, 2011 in News

Night BusYou don’t have to be a boozy beast to suffer a bus mishap. Overshooting your bus stop can happen to anyone, especially when long commutes are involved, and it can be a bewildering (and expensive) experience as you try to get home. Modern Londoners need not worry, however, thanks to the very wonderful BusChecker app, available now for the iPhone. The app has been around for some time, providing commuters with realtime info on the location of the bus they’re waiting for. It’s amazing stuff, and it just got even more amazinger (yes, that’s a word) with the introduction of an alarm function – a bleeper that goes off when you approach your desired stop.  A great idea no doubt, unless your natural response to alarms is to grunt and lash out at the snooze button. If so, probably best to sleep with your hands in your pockets  to avoid lashing out at your fellow night bus travellers. Those boozy beasts don’t take kindly to that.
