Can you hear that, Melbourne? It’s the sound of developers rushing to put the State Government’s recently released public transportation dataset into a decent public transport app you can use!
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Reddit (???) yesterday the fact that the dataset had been put into the public domain:
There’s also a funky graphic showing how crappy public transport directions on Google Maps are when you ask for a route in Melbourne.
Google Maps has already integrated the data set, meaning you can use it right now to find a bus, tram or train around the city.
I can now say I’ve upvoted a Premier on Reddit.
