Bus Stop is designed for desktop platforms and was tested on recent versions of all major browsers.
Mobile platforms aren't officially supported, which means that submitted bugs that don't happen on the desktop most likely won't be fixed.
Luckily, Bus Stop works fine in Chromium-based mobile browsers. Mozilla browsers on mobile platforms have major problems with this board's layout, that currently aren't planned to be fixed.
