  • [01] Mobile app for Athens public transport users launched this week

  • [01] Mobile app for Athens public transport users launched this week

    Passengers using Athens public transport will from Monday have access to key information enabling them to plan their journeys via their PCs, smartphones and other devices, using an app called OASA Telematics launched on May 15. According to the Athens Urban Transport Organisation (OASA) the new app will be able to suggest optimum routes, display maps showing the nearest station or bus stop, bus routes and the arrival time of the next bus or train.

    The new app can be downloaded free of charge at the website telematics.oasa.gr and will eventually be available on three platforms, of which only the Android operating system for mobile phones and tablets is currently available, with the iOS and Windows systems to be added within the week.

    OASA CEO Yiannis Skoubouris on Monday commented that the app will make all Athens bus stops "telematic" since every passenger will be able to use his or her mobile phone to see when the next bus will be arriving at the specific stop.

    It will also automatically display the bus stop nearest the user, the position of the buses on a map in real time, the best route between two locations using public transport and announcements concerning public transport and more. Users can also "favourite" the stops they use most frequently and thus automatically see the buses going past these in real time, in order to minimise waiting times during journeys.
