This City Tour was very frustrating to use. First, it took an hour to find a stop. Eventually some FIFA helpers, after asking several people, found the stop. When I did find the stop I was denied boarding three times as the driver said I...More

I took the bus in city center, it was too busy and the frequency was 30min. The audio description had this noise that made me shut it down which made the experience worse. I hope that they can fix it.
