Welcoming you back safely

While you’ve been away, we’ve been working hard to make sure you can get back on your regular public transport services with confidence.

Introducing RideSpace a free online tool that lets you see real-time passenger volumes on trains, on individual platforms and at stations across the metropolitan train network.

This means you can choose when you want to travel, according to how busy the next service will be.

RideSpace features

Real-time capacity

RideSpace displays four levels of capacity: Very Quiet, Quiet, Busy and Very Busy. It shows you how busy your station, your platform and your train will be and helps you decide which service to catch.

Real-time capacity updates

If you feel there’s a discrepancy between the information RideSpace is giving you and what you are seeing while on board, you can help us improve the data accuracy by using the ‘Tell us how busy this service is’ button. It automatically appears on your screen when you’re on board your train.

RideSpace’s accuracy will improve as we pull in more data over time. We are currently working on integrating it into the PTV app.

The data we add daily will improve the predicted station and platform capacity information up to 24 hours in advance, helping you plan when you’re most comfortable to travel.

RideSpace data is available in Google Maps and we're also working on enabling RideSpace data sharing with other third party apps, so if you use their journey planning tools, you’ll soon be able to see capacity information on your search.

This is phase one of RideSpace. We are currently investigating adding bus, tram and regional train capacity data to RideSpace.

You can also access the RideSpace link via the PTV app. You can save the website to your phone’s home screen as a favourite. Your public transport network is ready when you are!
