TripView displays Sydney and Melbourne public transport timetable data on your phone. It features a summary view showing your next services, as well as a full timetable viewer. All timetable data is stored on your phone, so it can be used offline. Features: - View times for any saved trip with a single tap - Real-time delay information and vehicle map (Sydney only, subject to data availability) - Trackwork and service interruption information - Interactive maps (create your trip by clicking on your station/stop) - Alarms (arrival/departure, time/distance) - Multi-modal trip editor (customise exact change locations / lines) - View your favourite trips on Apple Watch Realtime data is available for the following operators: - Sydney Trains (Sydney metro area only, excluding Waterfall and the T6 Line) - Sydney and Newcastle Buses - Hillsbus, Forest Coach Lines, Busways Blacktown, Transdev North Shore - Sydney Ferries - Sydney Light Rail (excluding stops between Exhibition Centre and Central) NOTE: Best efforts are taken to ensure timetable accuracy, but no guarantees are made. If you find an error in the timetable, please email with details. No guarantees are made about real-time data availability. If the transit operator doesn't provide real-time data for a particular service, TripView will revert to showing the scheduled time, as per the timetable. Alarms require iOS4 and a device that is capable of multitasking. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.



  • Essential

    By Abu Jemaah
    For the public transport travelling visitor this is a key resource. Optimally, associated with access to a bit of local knowledge when interpreting bus stops... 😏
  • Great when real time available

    By Mr man 123
    Great when working , but Murphy's law dictates that when absolutely required "real time not available" 261 northwood to city not updating

    Poorly laid out and confusing app.
  • Not for someone new to the city

    By Mr Oh
    This app may be good for commuters who have a specific journey they frequently make but for someone new to the city or making many differing trips the app quickly becomes cumbersome. A local geographical knowledge is essential for planning a bus trip. Do not rely on the real time bus times either. You can get caught out by a bus that at the last minute changes from running four mins late suddenly jumps to two minutes early, and just like in days before we used apps to make our days more efficient you get to see the back of the bus rather than the inside. Until public transport becomes more reliable do not rely on the information provided by this app, use it as a guide. The app also has some UX issues such as the trip in reverse button. The font on this button is tiny in comparison to the times on display and as such at a quick glance you may find yourself running for a departure that is actually leaving from your destination point. On some occasions such as with extended trip there is too much info on display and a far more simple view is required. That could be obtained by removing information about busses, trains etc that have already left.
  • I use this multiple times a day

    This is the BEST Sydney train timetable app out there. It is rock solid, highly reliable and the updates on trackworks and alternatives is fantastic. Well worth every penny.
  • Brilliant!

    By Oliver F
    I have used this app on and off for years. Having returned to Sydney recently for a three month stint of work without a car, I found myself totally reliant on public transport. This app has seriously made my life a lot easier. Buy it!
  • Good!

    By Monkey-Joy
    After prolonged use it seems the live data isn't very reliable. It's still pretty decent though.
  • Does the job

    By el-gordo
    Not the most intuitive app you will ever use but okay when you get used to it. Good for timetables but seriously what is the point in live tracking? I don't think I have ever once got anything meaningful out of it - data generally unavailable (at best) or wrong. Just turn it off!!!
  • Great app, But!!!

    By Wotdidyoudid4677434
    Awesome concept. Well built app but recent lately it has been letting me down. The bus locations on my daily morning route to work have stopped working and real time data is unavailable. Also on a large number of the busses in the eastern suburbs are no longer tracked Please fix, this is what makes this app awesome
  • Simple and accurate

    Excellent little app. Use it daily. Quick and easy to look up trains. Recommended to everyone using trains in Sydney.
