iBusVan iPhone app now discontinued (unless you can take over the project!)

iBusVan iPhone app now discontinued (unless you can take over the project!)

Arrr! iBusVan, a really good Vancouver transit iPhone app, is sadly no longer available.

Zhenwang Yao, the developer, has let me know that owing to limited time he won’t be continuing the project anymore. Here’s what he wrote to me:

Due to the limited time and resources. I am winding down the project. I have removed the app from sale. However, I will keep the server running for another while, so current users can still use iBusVan for a while. Sorry for the inconvenience.

However, I’ve asked Zhen and he is happy to hand over the project if someone else wants to continue developing it! If you’re that someone (and I really hope there is someone!), please do contact Zhen at

Thanks Zhen for such a great app, and best of luck with your future work!

For other iPhone transit apps, have a look at this list I put together previously—it includes TransLink’s mobile app and a few others from independent developers. And if you’re developing a mobile app or other handy tool for Vancouver transit, e-mail me! I’d love to write about it on the blog.
