Sick of missing your train or bus? There are apps for you to download to track both your train and bus live. Most of these apps allow you to view:
- the location of your train and bus in real time
- train service updates such as cancellations and delays
- lift and elevator statuses for selected train stations
- bus stops and routes nearby using GPS
- estimated bus arrival times.
Trains in the Sydney suburban network area (excluding the Carlingford Line and Waterfall Station) and Sydney Buses operating in Inner Sydney (Bus regions 6 - 9) can be tracked on the apps.
For reviews, ratings and more information on each app, go to the App Store or Google Play and download the best app for you.
