Show up on the app again or show up at the stop?

The bus would show up at the stop, roughly 5 mins after it disappeared from the app

The entire route has been built over the years with absolutely no bus priority without a lot of investment... even the narrowed, cycle friendly roundabout at the Knocklyon road... there is no way to fit a bus lane in there on both sides, its crazy.

So far I haven't had any problems. Only takes me 25 minutes to get to Dundrum now instead of 40-45 minutes on the 17/75. Even during rush hour it only took an extra 10 minutes.

Which section is that? I think the worst section is the Wyckham Way roundabout, the lights at Balally/Sandyford Rd, and J12.
