Translink has launched a digital testing program in which Queensland commuters will have the chance to use the new features on the App and provide feedback before the official release to the public.
Beta testers can sign up for the activities. Currently, Translink App is used to planing travels, receiving upcoming stop alerts, getting fare estimates, and finding out about service disruptions.
In a note, the company said that “is continually developing and exploring ways to improve the MyTransLink App based on customer feedback received through app stores as well as directly to TransLink’s customer team.”
“Among the latest changes are performance and accessibility improvements, relocation of the map from the Plan screen and the ability for customers to view recent journey plans and view timetables. Release dates are yet to be confirmed.”
“MyTransLink” is available free to download from the App Store and Google Play.
