“You can now plan your travel easily without any hassle, as Bus Timing app allows you to check intra city bus routes in Pakistan along with their travel charges and timings.“

The app provides up-to-date schedules of bus timings for inter-city travelling, so it is apparent that it will demand an internet connection. Therefore, after running the app for the first time, It attempts to communicate with the Daewoo Express server for the fresh list of schedules, as displayed in the following screenshot.

It then proposes the option to pick out the city from where one desires to travel, i.e. the current location, for this review we picked Karachi.
