Metlink's iPhone app gives you scheduled departures for trains, trams and buses throughout Victoria.

Features include:

Fully fledged journey planner: Get the power of Metlink’s multi mode journey planner on your phone. Simply specify a departure and arrival location and the app does the rest.

Favourites: Save your regular stops for quick access to departure and arrival information.

Live tram information: Built in tramTRACKER® functions give you real-time departures and arrivals for all tram stops.

Over the air updates: Get the most up to date timetables as they are generated.

Search for stops: Find your closest stops, searching by name, line, suburb or ID.

Find nearby stops: Out and about somewhere new? Find your closest stops via GPS.

Timetables: Browse all timetables by travel mode and line.

Alterations: View live scheduled and unscheduled service alterations for the entire network.

Network map: Pinch and drag around the network with built in maps.

All timetables are stored locally on your phone, so it uses none of your data pack / cap when using offline departures. Only over the air updates, alterations and tramTRACKER™ use your data. We recommend updating the timetables using the over the air feature while on a WiFi network for both speed and data usage reasons.

Also available: FREE TramTRACKER app – for realtime tram departure and arrival times

We are constantly trying to improve the app so if you find any problem please let us know. You can contact Metlink through the ‘Feedback’ button, or directly email
