    The app is not accurate in showing the last bus timing for each stop. App stated last bus departs Pier 39 at 7.04pm but its not true. We reached the bus stop before 7pm and waited and waited. When finally there is a bus comes at 7.30pm, the staff said last bus departs Union Square at 5pm. The bus drivers don't stop at all stops for a designated timing. If there are no passengers alighting or boarding, they straightaway leave the stop and continue the route. So that means they don't follow any timings at all. So if you want to catch the last bus at other stops, better reach very very much earlier.

    Voucher is easily redeemed at any of the big bus hop on stops. Big Bus tour has an app that is highly encouraged by big bus themselves for passengers to download that reflects the estimated bus position and routes. However, pls note that the last bus timings on the app is not updated. The least the driver could do was at least inform the passengers the time the last service ends...
