Public Transport Victoria app
By Public Transport Victoria
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Public Transport Victoria (PTV) iPhone app is the one-stop-shop for Victorian public transport journey planning information and is free to download from the iTunes Store.
Customers who are using any version of the app below 3.0.0. are advised they have been discontinued and are no longer supported by PTV. Please update to the latest version for the most up to date public transport information.
Offline mode is not available in this app. The app is online only and requires an internet connection. This means the app always provides you with the most up-to-date public transport information.
The new version of the app has been completely redesigned for iOS 7. Shaped by your feedback, this version delivers more public transport information and is a handy tool for when you are on the go.
What's New in Version 3.0.4
- Upgrade for native iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ display
- General Disruptions are now visible in the app
- Transport Maps can now be downloaded on request
- Fixed: improved error handling and stability
- Fixed: various minor bug fixes
Map view problem
In the map view of the application, it'd have been very useful if the current location icon also had the direction arrow, so it was easier to figure out which way you were going instead of walking few meters just to figure out you're heading the wrong direction!
Also the train timetable is a bit different from the actual schedule and it's not up to date!
This is now top quality
Map, nearby services, good search, favourites, timely response to feedback, and shows a little into the past as trains are often late. This app is now more reliable than my train (quite a bit actually). Well done to the team!
I haven't used this app for many years due to disastrous upgrades that destroyed usability and usefulness. Now I am trying it again in despair - competitor apps seem to be falling apart. It seems to be much improved.
At least, that was my assessment in my lounge room. When I actually try to use it on a railway station, it takes so long to update that the train has invariably arrived before the App gives me any information. I have fine broadband on my phone, and other apps / internet work.
