TripView - Sydney & Melbourne 4+
TripView Pty Ltd
Designed for iPad
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
NOTE: Best efforts are taken to ensure timetable accuracy, but no guarantees are made. If you find an error in the timetable, please email email@example.com 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.
- If a service is cancelled, the cancelled status will now also be displayed on the full stop listing screen.
- Fixed a couple of layout glitches on iOS 16
Ratings and Reviews
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.)
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. We haven't made any changes in this area, and haven't been able to reproduce this problem. Perhaps it's a data issue specific to your stop. If you can provide more details (e.g. some screenshots showing the problem) we can certainly take a look.
First place I go to to check transport options
SO helpful! Keeps you updated re arrival & departure times. Makes checking transport options much easier as it’s all available in one app. Hav recommended to visitors and locals alike. Love it!
My go to app when planning a trip on public transport. Have also recommended this app to travellers to help them get around Sydney. Regular updates keep u well informed. And u can follow yr trip route on a map-helpful in so many ways. A must have app for everyone. One of my favourites! Well done🥇
One app I wouldn’t be without! Hav also recommended this app as a must have to friends and travellers to Sydney. Agree with the above comments: keeps u well updated, informed and makes getting around on public transport SO much easier. Congrats to whoever designed this app-it is so USER FRIENDLY! One of my favourites-“🎶u r simply the best🎶”
Very poor Apple Watch implementation
I was at first very excited to see this app worked on Apple Watch because it’s very useful for monitoring my trips. However as soon as i tried to use it I realised the Watch implementation was just tacked on without thought and it made me wonder whether the devs even have a clue about how people use the app. It’s virtually useless for Apple Watch the reason is: Once a time is past you can no longer look at that route. So if you get on service at say 5pm and then want to check the arrival time at stops along the way whilst travelling … believe it or not … you can’t!!!! This is particularly bad when your trip combines multiple services because YOU ARE UNABLE TO CHECK THE ARRIVAL OF YOUR SERVICE AT THE INTERCHANGE OR THE LATEST TIMES OF THE CONNECTING SERVICE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is a major major FAIL !!!!
Ok following the reply from Dev. I would say ok I understand. I don’t agree.
But definitely you need to look at the trips that utilise multiple services because not being able to see arrival and departure time at the midway service interchange of the trip you’re on doesn’t seem to satisfy you stated main objectives.
Developer Response ,
Hi Wil, thanks for your review. We did put a lot of thought into the watch implementation, but there are limits to what we can do on the watch, and it's not intended to be a replacement for the full phone app. The watch app was mainly designed to handle the common case of checking the departure times for your next few services with minimal interaction. Selecting a connecting service on the watch would be pretty cumbersome. If possible, we would recommend just adding a second trip with the second segment. This should work quite well on the watch. If you have the "Sort Trips by Distance" option enabled, the watch app will show you times for you the second part of your trip automatically when you approach your interchange stop.
