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.

Terrible! I get notifications after the train has already left. For example, it's 4.15 and I get a notification that the 3.50 train has been altered. How does that help me, when that train has already been and gone.

Average app Most of the time notifications come through far too late to be any benefit, eg sending me an alert that my train will not run 30 minutes afters its normal departure time is pointless, i already its not running as I'm on the next one

useful but sometimes the notification comes too late (notification comes AFTER the train has left). also, some notifications about works in certain stations comes across as an alert but when launching the app to read more about it there isnt anywhere that shows it

Notifications What's the point of picking your notification time if it'll just continuously alert you anyway?
