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 bug where alarm indicator was not shown on the main list of times
- 'All Destinations' is now available as an option when selecting a stop 'By Distance'.
Ratings and Reviews
I find this app indispensable. It is really user friendly, the options allowing trips to be determined from the known to the unknown WHS father by route, stop or suburb. Where there are train station platform/line changes can be less straight forward and ideally where multiple forms of transport are required you would be able to split screen or something so you could more easily time swap-overs. It would also be good if it had an intelligent capability so if there were multiple routes from start point to end point it could show these plus shortest time/recommended route; also it would be good if it could calculate relative trip costs between alternative routes that would be useful.
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.
Brilliant App ( potential new feature? )
I really love this app and it’s heaps convenient for transport in both Sydney and Melbourne.
I have noticed that there is no feature to clearly distinguish between the standard Sydney Trains that accept Opal and the NSW TrainLink Regional Trains & Coaches which require you to book your ticket before you travel. I see an opportunity here for some sort of icon or service information alert to be introduced to the app that will identify whether the service requires a booking or whether you can use an Opal card.
I have previously had an experience where I planned a trip to Bowral and it wasn’t until I showed up to Central Station to get on the train that I found out that it was a booking only service. There was nothing on the app to suggest that this service was different from any other and I was very fortunate that the crew found a spare seat last minute and I was allowed to purchase a ticket on the train.
This is why I believe it is necessary to introduce this new feature.
