Adelaide Metro’s new public transport app is here!
21 December 2016
Adelaide Metro's new public transport smartphone app, metroMATE, has been launched to give Adelaide Metro passengers better information and assistance on their travels.
The metroMATE app provides easily accessible real-time and personalised information for passengers to choose the best way to get to their destination.
The app is being released as a trial ‘beta’ version for testing and feedback before it’s made ready for broad-scale release.
It is available for Apple products and features:
- Mobile friendly access to journey planning
- Real-time arrivals based on current location and planned destination
- Ability to save and monitor regular stops and journeys
- Ability to set alerts and alarms for favourite journeys
- Real-time map location showing next service
South Australian company, The Distillery, worked with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure to develop the app, which was launched today.
The initiative is being undertaken as part of the State Government’s Digital First strategy and our department’s Digital Transformation project.
Public surveys for the development of metroMATE were conducted in September 2016 with 1000 responses received, and the high priority functions desired by the public have been included in the app.
It follows on the success of DPTI’s AddInsight app, which provides hands-free alerts of approaching traffic delays, giving motorists an opportunity to us an alternative route.
As with other apps, metroMATE will be regularly updated in response to feedback from users.
More information is available on the Adelaide Metro website.
The app can be downloaded for Apple products. An Android version is currently being developed and will be available in early 2017.
