So now users will be able to actually check in real time where the bus is relative to a user's bus stop.Following bus operators are now real-time enabled:Sunbus (Sunshine Coast) Hornibrook Bus LinesKangaroo Bus Lines Thompson Bus servicesBrisbane Bus Lines services Bus Queensland Lockyer ValleyPark Ridge Transit Westside Bus CompanyBest wishesRobertRobert DowAdministrationadmin@backontrack.orgRAIL Back On Track http://backontrack.org
QuoteI noticed recently that the real-time feed is now providing information for the routes serviced by Brisbane Transport. I'm assuming this means the testing has been completed, and this data should be reasonably accurate. Can you verify that this is correct? Are there any buses/routes that aren't providing data yet, and if this is the case, do you have any estimates on when they will be available. Also, will real-time data for ferries and trains be available eventually as well, and what would be the timeframe for that?
QuoteTransLink are undertaking pre-production real-time testing on BT and BCC ferries. The GTFS real-time data may intermittently be available while we complete this testing.We can assure you that the data will go live shortly.Regarding rail, we are working closely with QR to provide a real-time feed and will provide updates to the group as to and when it becomes available.

QuoteWe're really excited to announce that real-time info is now available for bus, ferry and tram services in South East Queensland!Get up-to-the-minute departure times and make public transport choices based on actual travel time. The full roll-out of real-time is expected by mid-2015, when trains are integrated into the system. Find out how to access real-time info here http://bit.ly/12fY2kC

The problem comes up on the Translink app, but not as far as I can see on TransitTimes .. I wonder if it is because the TransitTimes app calls the GC line the Varsity Lakes line .. so it might not flag it because the Gold Coast line not recognised on the TransitTimes app as such.
Quote from: ozbob on May 11, 2015, 07:52:38 AMI have installed TransitTimes+ on my phone. I think it is good value as it covers all states, and will be useful in Melbourne and Sydney when visiting.Still evaluating but looks overall promising. Been following the 524s around, lots of fun ... < got to get a life
Quote from: pangwen on May 10, 2015, 14:39:21 PMHmm... I'm not sure if it's just me, but there are a few routes that don't seem to have real-time enabled properly? I'm currently checking out 140 and 150 (inbound), and there are no bus locations available. Data is available for 140/150 outbound, as well as many other services inbound+outbound (including 130, 375, 196, 199).
