  • Go Melbourne Train Timetable

    Aidan Steele 09 January 2015

    Company: Glass Echidna Dataset used: PTV API Timeframe from data set to development: Roughly one month working on it sporadically. Product: GO is a simple app available on Apple iTunes and Google Play to let people in Melbourne know when their next train is leaving. Who can use it? Victorian train users travelling from the same point A to point B each day. What does it do? GO features: • The latest departure and arrival times • The next departure time as a "Today" extension • Swipe up to see a more detailed timetable • On opening the app, the users GPS location sets the closest saved route • Background colour changes based upon the time remaining The app has a number of intuitive features such as anticipating which trip you’re likely to take based on your current location. It can also work offline so there is no need for the user to use their mobile data (except when updating timetables). A recent update also allows users to see when the next train is coming without having to unlock their phone. What users say: Great app and simple interface – David The android app works really nicely - Fiona Nice app. Clean and simple to use – James What Aidan says: It was quite lucky actually – I had been thinking about creating an app of some kind and was browsing and found that the PTV API had just been released. The data was simple to use, once I accommodated for it being released as a Word document. The data was excellent and making the app was quite straightforward. What does the future hold for Go and for Glass Echidna? Aidan is continuing to look for new opportunities for using Victorian Government data. He is also hoping to expand and improve on certain features within the GO app based on user feedback such as train platform information.
