Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
- 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.
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.
What's New in Version 5.1
- Added support for bus occupancy information in Sydney. TripView will now show a visual indicator on the right hand side of the screen showing how crowded each bus is, for buses that are providing this information.
- Fixed bug where trains at Clyde were shown in the wrong position on the rail network map.
- Fixed bug where vehicle icons were not rotating when the street map was rotated.
- Fixed bug where it wasn't possible to scroll to the bottom of the rail map on the split map/timetable view.
- Arrival alarms can now be configured up to 15 minutes before arrival.
This has to be the best trip planning application I have used. But, like anything, there are several ways it could be improved.
As someone who travels multiple times to multiple places throughout the day, I would love if I could set multiple alarms.
I would also love to see some integration with Opal, although I'm sure that they are very careful with data, which would make it harder to integrate. But a simple screen with your balance, recent trips & the option to top up would be great.
Still great but room to improve.
This app is a mainstay to track my regular buses. It is still missing two massive features though:
1. Widget showing the due time of the next bus on a favourite route.
2. The ability to combine multiple alternatives routes into one list. By this, I mean that I have two bus routes that stop at slightly different places - these can't be combined. To check the next bus, I have to flick between separate routes. An easy way to fix this would be to see a combined list of all journeys in a folder, for example.
Extremely useful for Sydney and Melbourne
Brilliant, just gets better and better. The paid app is well worth it - can now save favourite trips in both Sydney and Melbourne (trains, buses, trams). Really useful if you travel a lot. Quickly find out when your next train/bus/tram leaves, where to change, how long the connecting wait time is. Much much better than the Qld rail equivalent - this actually works.
