This app includes a version of the Journey Planner, the Real Time Board, bus stop locator and maps to help you plan your journey.
You can find the apps by searching "AT Public Transport" in the app stores.
AT Metro Track My Bus app
AT Metro Track My Bus is a mobile app that lets you track the progress of your bus in real-time, so you’ll always know how much time is up your sleeve. You can save your favourite bus routes and stops, and count down the stops until you’re on board.
With the Track My Bus app you can:
- Save multiple bus stops and bus routes.
- See in real-time where your bus is on your favourite routes.
- Track your bus progress from the ten-preceding stops.
- See when a bus has arrived or already gone.
Tracking other public transport services
The app is only set up to track bus services. The ability to track train and ferry services may be added later.

Bus stop txt service
Simply text your bus stop number to 3666.
The bus arrival information in the text message will appear as 'Real Time' information shown in minutes. If Real Time is not available for that service, the information will appear as Scheduled Time shown in a 24 hour clock format. The message may come in the format of shortened words/txt format.
BusStp 5355@15:59, 090 WESTGATE 16:07 8 mins, 090 WESTGATE 16:57 , 09X STURGES ROAD 17:15 , 090 WESTGATE 17:40
So the above text response translates as:
- Bus stop number 5355 was texted at 3.59pm
- At 4:07pm, Route 090 to Westgate is scheduled to arrive at this stop. According to The 'Real Time' information the 090 is approximately 8mins away.
- 'Scheduled Time' is shown as the next timetabled bus using the 24 hour clock e.g. 16.07
- 'Real Time' is shown as number of minutes before bus arrival e.g. 8 Mins
Each text response received costs 20 cents (inc GST) charged to your mobile phone account. Your 4-digit bus stop number can usually be found displayed on bus stop poles or timetable information posters. If you do not know your bus stop number or cannot find one at your bus stop, you can find it on a map here.
