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.

- Fixed selection of bus stops on the global bus tracker map
- Fixed real-time data not showing for long-running TrainLink services
- Added a warning at the top of the trip if mobile data has been disabled for TripView and no WiFi is available

- Minor routing fixes

Convenient most of the time
My only complaint is that some busses show up as “arriving in n minutes” but said bus drives past as a “not in service bus” then it is displayed as “arrived n minutes ago” on the app once it passes me. Service updates and whatnot DO NOT warn me of this. Missing a bus that only has indications of arriving can be ridiculously annoying if i’m trying to get somewhere in time and busses don’t come frequently. I frequently take one bus after the other, so if i miss the intended bus then i miss the second one, it can set me back 20+ minutes. Plus you have to be the idiot that risks sticking their arm up to signal a bus that says “not in service” and watch it speed past you. If you download this app, definitely account for this error, and take an earlier bus (it happens to me about once every ten trips.)
The upside: I use this app almost every day and it is worth paying to use the full version so that I don’t need to search up the route every time i want to check bus/train times. In the lite version, you need to search your initial and arrival destination every single time you leave the app. The full version is great if you’re taking the bus because you can check in on the arrival time update (which definitely fluctuates a lot.) The app is generally correct about bus arrival give or take 1-2 minutes, and updates the arrival time frequently.
Thanks for the feedback. The real-time data provided by Transport for NSW doesn't have a concept of "not in service". I'd expect that bus drivers should be signing out of the Opal system if their bus is not in service, so that the bus stops providing real-time data. When you saw an out of "not in service" bus go past, did it have real-time data available?
New version has an awful bug
Regretting updating to the latest version - previously this was so reliable and showed each bus as it passed my stop, with an indicator of whether it was late or early. Now it's showing them in my trip list as the time they're SCHEDULED to hit my stop, but without indicating whether they have or not - meaning that I have to click into that bus to see where it's tracking in real time. As Sydney buses are notoriously unreliable, you can see where this is headed. Of the five buses "next in line" on my timetable, four have actually already passed and are three stops up the road. Makes using the app very frustrating, and I would love if it reverted to the previous style, when real time tracking determined the order in which buses appeared. (Formerly I would have given this five stars, it's actually the one app I recommend to everyone, as it's been indispensable these past 4 years. This new "functionality", if that's what it is, has turned what I considered an exceptional app into a very average one, no better than the fixed timetables at each stop; basically, I'm turning up and hoping for the best.)
Hi, thanks for reporting this. We haven’t made any recent changes in this area, and it’s certainly not intentional. We’re not seeing this behavior here, but we’d like to get to the bottom of it. Could you send through some screenshots illustrating the problem?
