The West Australian Government has launched an updated Transperth app for public use after a successful testing phase.

The Transperth app, available on Android and Apple devices, enables real-time tracking of buses, trains and ferry services. The addition of GPS tracking on buses is a major new addition in the update.

“This app is all about making public transport a more streamlined, efficient experience for all passengers,” transport and planning minister Rita Saffioti said.

The app was tested by roughly 4,000 regular transport users over the past two months. 473 of the 479 who were surveyed said they would use the new app upon wider release.
