TripView displays Sydney and Melbourne public transport timetable data on your phone. It features a summary view showing your next services, as well as a full timetable viewer. All timetable data is stored on your phone, so it can be used offline. Features: - View times for any saved trip with a single tap - Real-time delay information and vehicle map (Sydney only, subject to data availability) - Trackwork and service interruption information - Interactive maps (create your trip by clicking on your station/stop) - Alarms (arrival/departure, time/distance) - Multi-modal trip editor (customise exact change locations / lines) - View your favourite trips on Apple Watch Realtime data is available for the following operators: - Sydney Trains (Sydney metro area only, excluding Waterfall and the T6 Line) - Sydney and Newcastle Buses - Hillsbus, Forest Coach Lines, Busways Blacktown, Transdev North Shore - Sydney Ferries - Sydney Light Rail (excluding stops between Exhibition Centre and Central) NOTE: Best efforts are taken to ensure timetable accuracy, but no guarantees are made. If you find an error in the timetable, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details. No guarantees are made about real-time data availability. If the transit operator doesn't provide real-time data for a particular service, TripView will revert to showing the scheduled time, as per the timetable. Alarms require iOS4 and a device that is capable of multitasking. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
I’ve been using the app for approximately 10 years and it’s always been a quality experience and well done. I went and checked to be sure and confirmed that I first started using the app in November 2009. Ages ago yet so recent. Functionality and coverage is perfect for Sydney. Would suggest that overview maps for Melbourne trams and trains be included for that region as it is in the app for Sydney trains. Everyone using public transport in Sydney and Melbourne should be using this app. And tourists should be told about the app in every travel blog.
It’s great for getting the bus times, but not always reliable. It consistently says my bus leaves 2 minutes later than it does. I know to arrive much earlier otherwise if I depended on the time it gives I would miss my bus which is quite frustrating!
How about storing my trips on the cloud so they can synchronize between iPhone, iPad, and watch?
The amount of time this app has saved me is countless. So awesome. Best app I’ve ever used.
Use it for Syd buses and Melb regional rail. Trust it. Rely it, use it daily
I just moved to Sydney from the States. I live in the city and don’t own a car so I take public transportation for everything. This app makes it so easy to figure out how to move around without the hassle of trying to read the maps.
Wish this had some of the functionality that opal travel app has. Specifically wish I could enter start and end points rather than have to tell the app which route I want to take.
This app doesn't stand alone if you don't know where you are going. You still need to rely on something like google maps and for this to be a really helpful app, it needs to include a feature that allows you to look up your route, otherwise you are just juggling between multiple apps
This app makes public transport in Sydney super easy. watch you bus come down the road on the real-time map and time your leaving any building to catch the bus with ease. You can also tap any bus stop to see any bus stopping there and where it can take you.
I really like the way you can get the times so easily, but I do find it time-consuming to find the schedules. It's hard to go through the bus numbers.
