metroNotify


If you travel by train in Melbourne, Australia then metroNotify is a must for you. metroNotify allows you to personalise Metro's live service updates to receive the information you want at the times that you need it.

New information about your selected train lines will arrive on your device as a push notification.

Updates are sent directly from Metro’s Control Centre. They are defined by the following travel categories:

Good Service - trains are running on time to five minutes.

Minor delays - journey time may be increased with trains delayed by between five and 15 minutes; however stay with your planned travel.

Major delays - significantly longer journey time expected with trains delayed by over 15 minutes. Consider alternative transport while we work to fix the problem.

Suspended - a section of the line has been suspended due to an unplanned disruption. Replacement buses will be used where possible, but alternative modes of transport should also be considered.

Works alert - planned improvement works will affect scheduled services. Replacement buses are likely to form part of this.

Travel alert - there will be special instructions or information for your line.

Each category (except good service) will be accompanied by information explaining why there is a delay or a change to your service. As new information comes to hand, it will arrive on your device through a push notification service.

metroNotify also gives you access to all live service updates should you need it, as well as the ability to link through to the Metro website site for news, journey planning and timetables.

Very average Very little ability to customise alert timings and, in most cases, it seems that Metro couldn't care less about notifying passengers of delays. They should check out Yarra Trams' app and learn a thing or two.

Useless What good is this app when it. doesn't tell you the train is running late, leaving you waiting 20 mins in wet clothes, then another 20mins because the connection wasn't running late so you've missed it

Need a silent running update rather than notifications I travel a lot, but don't have regular travel times. i want to be able to easily check for delays, without being noisily alerted to delays when I'm sleeping or otherwise not interested.

Hopeless App As I travel before 6 am it does not show service updates until after I get to work!!! Do not install this app if you are required to travel before 6am it is a wast of time!!

Can't read the notification You get a notification, click on it and it launches the app. So far so good. However, it shows you a totally different update rather than the one you were expecting. This is especially annoying when it is a broadcast message about weather or industrial action.
