Bus Uncle knows when your bus is coming
How many times have I loaded a bus timing app and spent more time trying to remember my bus stop number instead of getting to the stop in the quickest time possible? Countless.
Well, it seems as if someone felt the need to actually solve this everyday problem because we now have the Bus Uncle, a messenger bot on Facebook. All you have to do is look for him, type ‘bus how long’, and you’ll get an instant response – no lie. Half disbelievingly, I went on Messenger to try it out for myself, and I found it put the word fun in checking bus arrivals.
Whether you want to find out when your bus is coming or just want to relieve boredom, these aspects of Bus Uncle will show you why it’s time to move on from your old bus arrival app:
Bus Uncle helps you look for bus stop numbers even before you get there to save time
He’ll even calculate the cheapest route to help you save money
Bus Uncle will give you ~fun~ stuff to read during your 15++ minute wait for the bus
He’s also like a 24-hour food-finding app

Here’s to technology making our daily transportation rides infinitely easier – and funnier. Who’d have thought that a bus arrival service could be more like a friend rather than just a mere downloaded app?
If you want something to perk up your mood or just want your bus deets, Bus Uncle is your man – or bot – for the job. The most awesome part? You won’t have to memorise those 5-digit bus stop numbers no more.
