We are proud to announce: new features, an improved interface and various improvements to GoMetro.
A few months ago, GoMetro announced that we have mapped all public transport routes, including Minibus taxi routes in Bellville. We generated the GoMetro Bellville map by using the GoMapp app (a mapping technology developed by GoMetro) and equipped a small team with smartphones and the will to do something that has never been done before in a South African city. That data is now available electronically, using the GoMetro app. In an effort to further improve the commuting experience for all South Africans, we have updated our mobile site and apps.
Point to point routing
Instead of only choosing stations and certain stops, a User can now enter the address of his location and his destination, using an easy, autocomplete textbox on GoMetro’s home page.
Users can now choose which transport modes they want to take from the Home page. By default, all modes are selected, to help users see what options are available to get them to their destination. Users can simply tap on the modes they do not want to use, to deselect them.
Users can now view the fares of the transport modes they have selected on the results screen. Simply select your start and end point and the correct fare amount for each leg of your journey will be calculated for you.
A user can now easily see his trip on a map. On the results screen, after selecting their start and end locations, simply select the “View map” button.
Users can now save their different journeys from the trip results page and view their saved journeys on the homepage of GoMetro.
GoMetro has again been optimised to use less data to load pages. All users can benefit from this data-lite site and apps, to save on data. The page load time has also increased.
We also added the latest data from the different transport modes available on GoMetro. See routes for Metrorail, MyCiti bus and Golden Arrow bus in Western Cape. For Gauteng: Metrorail, Gautrain, Gautrain Bus and Rea Vaya Bus.
We are sure everyone will enjoy using GoMetro’s new Features and improvements. Please send us feedback as soon as possible if you find any bugs on the site. Please also provide us with your valuable opinion on how we can continue to improve GoMetro.
