Cityrail Redesigns Web Site

cityrail
Sydney’s Cityrail still might be resisting the idea of useful portable applications and not yet on Google Maps, but a redesign of its site has made it easier to get to travel information.

The big-picture changes are live links to service updates (a design which seems to have been copied from the similar site for London Transport), a front-page timetable search that incorporates the Sydney-wide 131500 service and the ability to download PDF copies of major timetables. The big challenge will be if the information is kept up-to-date — I took a recent trip where a train was delayed by 45 minutes and eventually we were all forced to change to a different train, none of which apparently counted as a service disruption according to the (old) site.
