Need a bus? You know where to turn
Next Bus UK Review

If you’ve ever been out and about on the UK’s fair streets, you’ll know all about the need to jump on a bus now and again.
This application is designed to help out the troubled user who has strayed away from home and needs to find the nearest route back – or the seasoned traveller who needs updates on when their next bus will be popping along.
You’ve got an easy to use interface that allows you to search via postcode or address, and from here users can simply see the time their next bus is due thanks to an extensive timetable database.
Live Tile updates aren’t quite there as yet allowing you to see how far away your bus is, but you can pin your favourite routes to the start screen for easy access information whenever you need it.
