Fed up of delays, or waiting under an overcrowded bus-shelter in bad weather for public transport? A new mobile-based service is on its way.

Click and pick

Trafikanten.no, a website giving travel information in around Oslo, has recently signed a new deal with Geodata that will allow passengers to access many new features.

“This will be a major upgrade to our map service. Users will be able to click on the maps directly and it will calculate the quickest walking distance to the five nearest transport stops,” says Trafikanten’s advisor, Torbjørn Barslett.

No hiding place

The new service will also show real-time travel information with maps, putting an end to the mystery of where your tram, tube, or bus driver is skulking.

Trafikanten says that the upgrade will also improve map displays, with both faster scaling and panning.

In addition, passengers will be able to download aerial photographs using Geodata Online.

Don’t forget to charge your mobile before leaving for work.
