Metlink app now on Android

PASSENGERS using Android devices can now plan their public transport journey from their mobile phones.

A new Metlink application, currently in its beta version, enables passengers to plan their journey, check schedules for trains, trams and buses, receive real-time tram departure times through tramTRACKERS and use GPS to find their closest stops. Passengers can also see unplanned changes for metro trains and load their favorite stations and stops for quick access to timetables.

Free for download through the online Android Market, the application works on mobile devices using Android operating system 2.1 or higher.

Metlink is encouraging customers to try out the application and give them feedback to help them to improve the product.

“An important part of Metlink’s digital product development is to monitor passengers’ information needs, so any feedback about the app can be submitted using the app’s ‘feedback’ tab,” Metlink spokeswoman Donna Watson said.

The Android application is the latest addition to the line of mobile applications developed by Metlink, which includes iPhone and Nokia applications. Alternatively, passengers who not using iPhone, Nokia or Android can access Metlink’s mobile departure board at http://metlink.mobi/ from any mobile phone with internet access.

  1. How can the QuotesChimp get away with this? Simple. The language of the insurance contract permits them to do it, and inadequate enforcement by most state insurance departments doesn’t stop the companies from wielding the ax in an unfair and ca�pricious manner.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
