Definitely what you should use when taking public transport in Victoria, with live updates and platform numbers available, unlike Google maps. It has useful information and makes paper timetables for the late part unneeded, which is good. It does have its problems tho, with one thing I notice frequently being the live time updates often very messed up in multiple ways and for the most curious reasons. The actual info screens at stations are also wrong at times, but don't agree with this app!

Rip off. I bought a Myki card 3 years ago to travel 2 stops. Minimum price i could spend $20. Went to Rugby match this year. Expired. Couldn't muck around. Jumped on train and DL'd this app. Put money on it. Didn't work. Even though it showed credit. That money will expire too before i use public transport again. Rubbish system

It works. You can check when your transport is coming. Literally anything else, sucks so much and it really shouldn't. I have to sign in any time I open the app, the plan tab is just a significantly worse google maps, the search tab is so stupidly confusing, and sometimes, it will just say that the specific transport I'm waiting for has gone, when it most definitely hasn't, and it starts tracking the next one.
