TripView displays Sydney Train/Bus/Ferry timetable data on your phone. It features a summary view showing your next services, as well as a full timetable viewer. All timetable data is stored on your phone, so it does not require any network access.

- If you're going to leave a review claiming that the timetable is not accurate, please email me with details so that I can fix it. Timetable accuracy is my highest priority, and as far as I'm aware the data is 100% accurate, so if you do find a problem - I want to know about it. Thanks!

- Departure alarms (time based) and arrival alarms (time/distance based).

Alarms require iOS4 and a device that is capable of multitasking. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

NOTE: Timetable data is derived from the web based timetables, so it does not take into account any delays, cancellations, or trackwork. Best efforts are taken to ensure timetable accuracy, but no guarantees are made. If you find an error in the timetable, please email with details, and it will be fixed in the next release.

Known issues:

- All trains on the plasma display are currently shown as "8 Cars" and "Limited Stops"
- Note that not all bus trips are reversible, because the stop names in the opposite direction are sometimes different.
