The One Thing That Just Made Getting Round VIC A LOT Easier
Life is about to get a whole lot easier for passengers on Melbourne's trains, trams and buses! Passengers will now have real-time travel information on their phones across ALL public transport.
Public Transport Victoria's updated app will see real-time information for trains automatically appear in the menu.
Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan announced today that the metropolitan train users will now benefit from the same access to real-time departure information already enjoyed by users of the Melbourne's trams and buses.
Passengers can now make more informed travel decisions such as whether to leave earlier, stay longer or change their travel plans entirely and can avoid unnecessary waiting at platforms or stations, especially late at night.
According to PTV's website, existing PTV app users will see real-time information for trains automatically appear in their menu options but will need to download the latest update to the PTV App to benefit from additional train platform and cancellation information.
The updated PTV app is available free of charge from Google Play or the iTunes store.
