Public transport journeys around greater Wellington have just become even easier with the launch of Metlink’s new website on Saturday 10 October.
The new website – metlink.org.nz – will put real time transport information at passengers’ fingertips so people can easily plan and adjust their journeys. The new website works across desktops, tablets and smartphones, replacing existing Metlink desktop and mobile websites.
Metlink is the network of bus, train and harbour ferry services planned and funded by Greater Wellington Regional Council.
Key new features of the website will make it simpler and quicker to plan journeys around the Wellington region. Users will be able to:
The new site has been robustly tested with users, with 85 per cent of them rating the site better or much better than the current site. Respondents also reported that it was easier to find and load the information they needed on the new site and they found the look and feel much improved.
Metlink invites website visitors to share their feedback on the new site so they can make sure it is best meeting users’ needs.
Next up, Metlink is working on improved iPhone and Android apps to continue to make travel in the Wellington region easier.
