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 4.9
- Added support for trip synchronisation using Dropbox (under Tools/Sync). You can use this feature to keep your trips in sync across multiple iOS devices.
- Late/early services that don't have a current vehicle position will now be shown as "Last reported X mins late", or "Last reported X mins early". In this case, "Last reported" means the prediction is based on the last known position of the vehicle.
Great but don't trust the 'running late' feature
Easy to use. Great app, except the feature that shows the 'live' info about whether the train is on time or how many minutes late it is. Every time I've delayed going to the station by a few minutes because Tripview said the train was late, I've missed the train. The train makes up the late time then arrives on time at the station but the app doesn't update until the train arrives at the station.
Result: you get no notice that the train has made up for lost time until you've missed the train because you thought it was running late.
It's like a Joseph Heller novel.
Commuters Best Friend
Used the Lite version for awhile a loved how easy it was to use straight away and faster to look up times than looking it up in the PDF of the city rail timetable I had in iBooks. Decided to buy the full version so I could save the trips but then found all the extra handy features and it's been worth every cent!
This app has some good features, but none are unique. I'm also not a fan of the interface, it would be so much easier to save a single stop/station as a favourite and view all services instead of having to save individual trips with a specified start and end. And with the price tag, you're better off using other free user friendly apps, like Google Maps in Sydney or the PTV app in Melbourne.
