I want to describe the evaluation of my Android app (Bus tracker).

Can I say about the time of enter and exit the bus The time of getting in and off since the bus was not always accurate or I should use departure and arrival time?

It depends what you want to describe. Travelling by bus involves several stages including:

getting on the bus
getting off the bus
the bus departing its origin
and the bus arriving at its destination.

Departure and arrival describe the state of the bus.
Getting on and getting off the bus describe the state of the rider.

What time does the bus get in?

Is colloquial for

When will the bus arrive?

but is usually used in conversation.

Arrival time and departure time refer to when the bus gets in and when it leaves.
Anticipated or expected can be used as modifiers:

anticipated arrival time
expected departure time
