Next generation Transperth app launched today
The new Transperth app launched today is set to make catching public transport in Perth even easier, with users now able to GPS track nearby buses.
The next generation app, which has been trialled by about 4,000 regular public transport users for two months, is now available to the public on both iPhone and Android operating systems.
A massive 98 per cent of the beta testers surveyed (473 of 479) said they would use the updated Transperth app when it was launched.
The app builds on JourneyPlanner by enabling commuters to track their bus on the in-built map in real time, manage their SmartRider account details and arrange SmartParker and bike shelter access.
GPS trackers have been installed in all 1,481 of Transperth's metropolitan area buses, so passengers will know when their bus is due to arrive, where it is on its journey and what route it will take.
