Transport InfoLine

The Transport InfoLine is a telephone and web-based information service for public transport in New South Wales. Originally designed as a telephone information service for metropolitan Sydney, its scope has been extended to include transport in country areas. The InfoLine is commonly known by its telephone number, 131 500. The service is provided under contract to the New South Wales Ministry of Transport.

The service allows users to plan journeys spanning multiple transport modes and transit operators, and is marketed across the city's public transport network.

Telephone

Around 2.24 million calls were made to 131 500 in the 2005-06 financial year, down slightly on the previous year. This coincides with significant upgrades to the service's website. Around a third of calls are handled automatically by an interactive voice recognition system. The remainder is directed to a call centre.

A parallel teletype service for hearing and speech impaired customers is available on 1800 637 500.
