The Public Transport Victoria (PTV) Android app is the one-stop-shop for Victorian public transport journey planning information and is free to download from the Google Play store.
Offline mode is not available in this app. The app is online only and requires an internet connection. This means the app always provides you with the most up-to-date public transport information.
Following feedback from the iPhone app and demand, PTV have now created a dedicated Android app.
