New South Wales (NSW) has revamped a free app for iPhone and Android smartphones that integrates all of the public transport information within the state into a single portal. 

The Transport Info app is now even easier to use, providing up-to-the-minute information on bus, rail and ferry services,” a Transport for NSW spokesperson said.

Anyone with a smartphone or tablet computer - including iPhones and iPads - can download it for free.”

The app, known as ‘Transport Info’, provides information around the clock, and customers can use it to:

  • plan a trip and view a map of their journey;
  • find their next bus, train or ferry from any location, and save favourite locations and trips for quick access;
  • view information including details about service changes; and
  • view wheelchair-accessible trips.

The app is an updated version of a previously released app, but with a faster search function, improved map capabilities with rapid loading times and a better zoom function, and the ability to save personalised travel itineraries. It also features a completely different user interface.

Transport Info also has integrated GPS information and is one of the many initiatives to be rolled out by Transport for NSW in the coming months. It can be downloaded at its dedicated website or downloaded at the Apple App Store or the Android Marketplace by searching for “Transport Info”.
