TransHub – your questions answered

99ColourWe released a sneak peak on our upcoming Windows Phone 7 application TransHub to facebook earlier in the week and were overwhelmed with a few common questions we thought would be best answered here so everyone can benefit. It’s been great to see interest in the application and we’ve had lots of offers from people to help beta test etc. so thank you all very much for your support.

What is TransHub?

TransHub provides personalised, reliable public transport planning as a Windows Phone 7 application. Transhub removes the hassle of confusing timetables and frustrating journey planning for Sydney public transport. By combining state of the art travel planning, up to date timetables and full personalisation, Transhub saves you time by providing the most accurate and quickest routes (by bus, train, and/or ferry) to your destination in a matter of seconds. With an activated GPS, Transhub will update your map showing you where you are and where you need to take the next step of your trip.

For those who want to get a feel for what the application looks like here’s some screen grabs from the application. We’ve taken screen shots with the black theme but it also looks great in the white theme.


When will it be available?

We’ve submitted the application to the marketplace for certification and expect it to be live in the next few days. As it was the first release and was on a strict deadline for the Spotlight program we didn’t get all the features in we really wanted so we’re already preparing an updated version fixing a few issues our beta testers have identified and adding a bunch of extra feature to improve the overall application experience.

Is it available for other cities?

At this stage we are aiming the initial releases at Sydney, so we can road test it on an audience and make some improvements you want to see. We have plans to expand to other cities in the future if the application is successful, so stay tuned for a TransHub near you.

How can I ask for features that I want?

At the moment the best way for bug reports, feature requests or general questions is to drop us an email at but we’re looking at setting up systems for feature requests, and voting on features and changes soon.

  1. If I download it from Melbourne, will it show me the most efficient route to get from Melbourne to Sydney? ;P J/K

    Seriously though – looks great, and eventual expansion beyond Sydney would be fantastic! Please let me know more once publicly released. I would also love to do an interview with the Dev team and publish on my site – Australia’s number 1 dedicated WP7 blog!


    • Thanks Sheeds.
      Unfortunatly we’ve limited the maximum walk distance to 10km atm and limits your from/to to a boundary around the data available 😉
      Will def. be in touch when it’s live and more than happy to do an interview for your site.
      Regards, Bronwen.
