GPS power for Australian public transport info

Australia: The next generation TransLink mobile website will include Journey Planner easy travel, featuring a GPS capability that allows customers to search for stops, go card retailers and journeys near their current location, according to Annastacia Palaszczuk, Transport Minister, Australia.

“This is expected to benefit thousands of customers a week who use devices like iPhone and Ipad to access public transport information,” Palaszczuk said. “More than two-thirds of customers visit the TransLink website to plan their trip and the GPS function of Journey Planner easy travel will allow them to do that on the run without trying to find an address for their current location.”

The new site will also include a My Links feature will allow users to save and store links to their favourite and most visited TransLink pages, timetables, service updates, go card locations and journey planner searches.

Users will be able to automatically access the TransLink mobile site by visiting www.translink.com.au on their mobile web-based phone, iPads or tablets.
