31 Jan

Busbud iPhone app

Today, we are very pleased to announce the launch of our new iPhone app aimed at giving travellers easy access to intercity bus travel information on the go.

Available for free for iPhone and iPad users, Busbud is your ideal bus travel companion, gathering together intercity bus schedules for 4000+ cities in 60+ countries.

At Busbud, we are uniquely focused on the problem of intercity bus travel, especially making the process of finding a bus schedule and buying a ticket as easy as possible.

With the launch of our mobile app, travellers can now:

  • Instantly access bus schedules on the go.
  • Sort by the best price, shortest duration and departure time.
  • View schedules in 10 languages and see prices in 15 currencies.
  • Auto-detect their current city and easily view top destination suggestions for that city.

In the example above, if a traveller searches for buses from Montreal to Toronto around noon, the Busbud app will display the next departure (13:00) closest to the current time for each company. This gives travellers a helpful at-a-glance comparison of multiple options, allowing them to find the right bus for their trip faster.

Busbud Launches Improved Route Pages

24 Jan

Improved-Route-Page

Today, we are launching a series of improvements for our popular Route pages that will make finding the right bus even easier.

After recently revamping our site design and launching a new promo page for our partnership with Orleans Express, we’re proud to finally bring these improvements to the entire website.

So what’s been improved? We have restructured the way bus schedules are accessed to make finding relevant information easier:

  • Results are now specific to the timeframe you wish to travel in and can be sorted by date, duration and price.
  • Passenger counts are now taken into consideration, making price comparisons a lot faster.
  • On select routes where additional data is available, we’re also including student and return trip pricing.

With these changes, travellers gain access to a lot more data than was previously available and better exposure to time-sensitive results, such as seasonal schedules and promotions, which we are working hard on expanding our coverage of.

Check out an example of the improved route page for Buenos Aires to Cordoba here!
