Event description

Description

For decades we’ve used public transport the same way. You’ve had to know which bus numbers to catch, which train line to use, which ferry to ride on. You needed to refer to a booklet or ask around. You’d never know if your bus or train was running late, or if you’d missed a connection!

Travel apps help change all this by making getting around on public transport much easier, and potentially cheaper. You can think of an app as your personal travel agent.

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

You will probably already own a smartphone and want to know how it can help you get around with confidence. You will know some smartphone functions, including how to use the touchscreen, how to download and install an app from the phone’s app store, and how to perform a web search using the smartphone’s inbuilt web browser.

If you have attended the Tech Savvy Seniors Introduction to Smartphones and Introduction to Email Part 1 workshops you will have a good knowledge of many of the concepts covered in this workshop!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • An internet-connected smartphone; either your own or supplied by the workshop organisers. You may need to share a smartphone with others in the workshop.
  • An Apple account (or Apple ID) for downloading apps to an iPhone smartphone, or a Google account (or Google ID) for downloading apps to an Android smartphone.
  • An email address (if you have an Apple or Google ID, you will have used an email address to set up the account).
  • An active Opal card to register on the opal.com.au website.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

In this workshop you’ll learn what an app is, and how to use three different transport apps for trains, buses and other forms of public transport to get around.

THE APPS

We’ll look at three of the more popular apps in this workshop. Transport for NSW Trip Planner, Opal Travel and Moovit.
