New apps with real time bus information
Start: 17/12/2012 12:00 AM
Customers travelling on Sydney Buses can now track their bus in real time by downloading one of three new apps, TripView, TripGo or Arrivo Sydney. The apps provide real time information for Sydney Buses operating in the Inner Sydney region and enable customers to:
- view the location of their bus in real time
- find bus stops and routes nearby using GPS
- view estimated bus arrival times
- know when to get off the bus via an alert service
- find where to buy a bus ticket.
The apps use information provided by Transport for NSW to determine the location of buses, and estimated arrival times based on GPS tracking and historical data.
Sydney Buses operating in Inner Sydney including South Harbour, Inner North, and Northern Beaches and Eastern Suburbs (Bus regions 6 - 9) will be tracked on the apps.
The apps have been developed following Transport for NSW’s ‘App Hot House’ competition to encourage developers to produce the best real time bus app products. The competition was launched in response to recent customer feedback, which showed that customers are looking for real time information while travelling on public transport. Five app developers were selected from the competition to have access to real time bus data. This data will be released more broadly at a later stage.
