Public Transport Victoria app

Public Transport Victoria app


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.

****PLEASE NOTE****
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.

• Disruptions provide a summary of the disruption and a click through to the website if you need more information. There are also links to the operator’s social media feeds.
• Transport network maps for metropolitan train and tram, V/Line and Nightrider.
• All bus and train information shown in the PTV app is scheduled timetable information.
• Tram information shown in minutes is from tramTRACKER®, those shown in times are scheduled (timetable) services.
• Re-tap menu option to return to default options.
• Context sensitive help screens on key features.
• Improvements to the quality of data, especially by making the app online only.
• Designed for the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system (version 4.0) or higher.

Needs Work Not intuitive, for a public app, the ui should be intuitively easy for a majority of the population. To change locations and times it's a back and forth process that in this year of 2015, should not be an issue from day one with the right planning. This is why you should have an expert overseer watching over the project and not some public servant who uses the train to go to work and go home. Research is not easy, the questions you ask are before producing a public menace. Though a useful app needs a lot of user control design fixes it does work. Thanks for reading.

Poorly written Missing many basic features that Google has. E.g. searching for landmarks rather only addresses. Also needs to save the state while switching apps rather than losing all data.

Trip details and prrferences broken Neither of the above show anything when selected rendering this app less useful that paper timetables. Please fix!

It's only gotten worse If a public transport app can't fine locations like the exhibition centre, you've got a problem
