Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance today announced regional customers will have access to real-time information for regional train and coach services.
“The data will be available across eight transport apps, providing regional customers with the most up to date information currently available, with train updates recorded every 30 seconds and coach services every few minutes,” Mr Constance said.
“For the first time regional customers will have access to the same information about their services as our metropolitan customers, and as Future Transport progresses, there will be more improvements on the horizon for regional customers.
“By using the real-time apps, customers will know when to leave home or work to get to the station or stop, and those meeting-up with different transport modes will be able to use real-time information to plan their entire trip door to door.”
NSW TrainLink customers will be able to access real-time information for North Coast, North Western, Southern and Western regional train and coach services.
The new real-time data will also be available for South Coast line between Kiama and Bomaderry and the Blue Mountains, Hunter and Southern Highlands lines.
“There have been over three million downloads of real-time data transport apps since they became available and 90 million requests for timetable data each month,” Mr Constance said.
“Including regional data on the transport apps demonstrates the NSW Government’s commitment to improving public transport services right across NSW.”
Real-time data for regional trains and coaches is available on transport apps TripView, NextThere, Arrivo Sydney, Triptastic, Metarove, abil.io, Moovit and Transit App. Real-time data will progressively be rolled out on other transport apps.
