Metlink real time2Metlink Realtime App is out of date

If the Metlink app you are using looks like this it is out of date. The old Metlink Realtime app is no longer supported and hasn't updated with the new bus network information, including changes to bus stops. 

This app was withdrawn from the app stores awhile ago and you should do the same. Delete it from your device and download our current Metlink Commuter App to get real time bus, train and ferry information on your phone.
