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.

Notification issue Notification doesn't show the entire message. When I click the notification, the message just disappear and no where to be found. It'll also be good to allow users to choose different notification setting such as vibration and ringtone.

Poorly designed and unhelpful This app doesn't add any real value. You can't view timetables and or filter reports accurately for the specific times you travel, so you end up getting alerts while you're asleep and at work. The alerts aren't clear at all and the format is awful. The best app by far is train trapper, you can report delays and view timetables.

What's with the 5am notifications? Alerts are set for 8am yet this app ignores that and sends useless notifications whenever it feels like

Typical Metro Just like their customer service and ability to run a train network... this app lives up to Metro's low standards
