Probably good if you know the area Been 30 years since I caught a tram. What I want is. I have a given tram stop Nmbr. I need to get off one stop before that. What's that stop No? Doesn't show on map. Now I have GPS enabled, so show me nearest boarding point. Nope. Can't do that either on this app.

The original and best Early adopters of Android only had this app to use for years before yarra trams finally made an android port of their app. This one works just as well and is less cluttered.

Jonathan Romer

Free and excellent I now have Train Trapper and this.. Wonderful.. :D

saeed zohdi

Lost 22 march event in Melbourne Right now the stops in Melbourne CBD are closed but your app shows trams are coming!!!!

R Hidalgo

Handy and simple

Jay Lynch

Back to its old self, great to see! Must have for Melbournians! New JSON API option seems to have resolved performance issues, great return to form... Lucky this got fixed, none of the other tram apps were ever really any good. :)

Better than tramTRACKER You can see ALL coming trams immediately in chronological order and you can manage your favourite list very easily. Great job! But it would be even better if you could group your favourites like in tramTRACKER

R Paton

Even better!!! My preferred tram app that has got better and better. Simple and easy to use. Love it.

Philip S

Indispensible We need this for Melbourne's buses as well. Unlike the trams, buses tend to go AWOL and one waits 30 mins for the next one. These real time trackers tend to keep the drivers honest.

Kris Gerhard

Something happened! The app is only showing me now or next day services, and it's 10am! No help...

Juliem Rither

Very friendly user surface .easy to use .very fast. Very professional software. After updated, it does not work any more. I uninstalled your app and give you one star.

CJ Hall

Time's out of whack Pretty good, but sometimes it'll say a tram is a minute away for 10 minutes until it actually shows up

A Google User

Bring back quotes Please please please bring back the quotes. They made waiting for the tram bearable

Justin Allott

No Map Would be so much easier if there was a live map (not just a network map) with GPS positioning and public transport icons. Other versions have this feature but lack the easy bookmarking ability.


Wow Simple and awesome.

A Google User

Amazing, so fast The original and best Android tram app. The new JSON API makes queries super fast.

Gee N

Need no other Need no other tram app for Melbourne. Great, simple, responsive, and it delvers just the info you need to get around

Bill Chen

Original is the best Well done Andy, this app JUST WORKS. Way better than the official tram tracker app.

Tom Connolly

Great well designed ux

A Google User

Excellent Very useful and helpful app.

Joshua Sansom

Brilliant Again Seems to be working again. Much more accurate than Yarra trams

Payal Srivastava

Better than the official app

chris scott

Love the tram quotes.

Ryan Brett

Used to work great, now it hardly ever let's me know when a tram is due. The stupid tram pun quotes at the bottom of the screen are all the more nauseating now. This app is a frustrating piece of digital crap. Avoid at all costs

Pook K

Was great Originally switched from tram tracker as tram hunter was much faster. Like others mention, lately won't load anything most of the time or is so slow I give up. Another poor feature is the reloading the results when the screen orientation changes.

Mallory P.

Going to uninstall. Been having problems with app for weeks trying to load information very temperamental its irritating. Tram tracker app is better.

Dan Parr

Great app with silly popups great app! but... please stop with the 'special event' popups? i know to hold on to the tram as it moves - unneccessary!

Dion McDonald

Brilliant commuter app Besides Google Maps, this is easily the most useful and user friendly commuter app on the market and it's free so astonishingly good value. Latest version however seems stuck "loading" constantly. This needs some attention.

Lee Ones

Not as good as Tram Tracker. The official Tram Tracker is significantly better, with way more features, better usability, and superior looks.

Stephen Nash

App's good: This is better than the average apps around it's quick and easy to use good one.

Selin Saritoprak

The best! So accurate and precise. Very easy to use. Highly recommend this app!

Gayan Rajapaksha

Great app Only drawback is pop up special event alerts. Otherwise excellent.

Jake Edwards

Crashing since update :( Unable to open due to crash, reset app data and now crashes on route browse.

Ramiro Fernandez

Better than the official one I'd love to see an option to set "goal stops" (home, work, etc) and have a "go to goal" option which finds the closest tram stop that will take you there...

Slappy Cool

Legendary App Great , so functional! A identical train version would be perfect!

Пользователь Google

The tram quotes Please bring the quotes back! :'(

John Klein

It works! Easy to use. Gives me the next few trams, which the other app doesn't.

A Google User

Bring back the quotes! Solid app. Better than ptv/tram tracker. Need to see the quotes again.

Marty Le

Great App I've used this for a very long time and have not had any issues whatsoever!

Andrew Spiers

Better than the official app.

Jiratigan Saenda

Simple and work well

Rory Dickson

Great app So easy to use

Barb Wellen

Best The best

Aaron King

Much better than official app! Just the best tool for anyone who has to put up with Melbourne's woeful tram network. Makes it much easier to tolerate. Don't wait for a tram in the rain without it!

reedoo reloaded

Loads, functions and delivers information quicker and more efficiently than the "official app" which is bloated by comparison and slow. Best tram app available.

John Terrell

Used to be excellent... I've used Tram Hunter for several years and found it great. However recently it has often been displaying errors with retrieving data. Don't know if this is a problem with the app or with Yarra trams / PTV data feed

A Google User

Fav Stop Times on App Home Screen It would be good if you could automatically show the mins until departure for your favourite stops on the startup screen

Simple easy to use Very accurate. Straight forward. No nonsense
