Restless Sydney train users will now have access to six new apps to play with that will track the location of their train ride in real time.

The new array of iOS and Android apps have been funded by the NSW State Government, with each app offering unique features such as predicting arrivals and issuing advice on trip planning.

One app in particular could prove extremely valuable for blind users or those who like to sleep on the train, with a voice-over notification reminder telling users when they need to disembark at the correct stop.

As to why there couldn't just be one app covering everything, your guess is as good as mine.

NSW Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian said in a statement today that the new apps would be extremely useful due to their accurate live-tracking and satellite information.

"Before people were relying on the timetables as they were printed. This gives people real-time information and that's the key thing, so people can find out if their trains are running on time," she said.

The apps cover trains on the Western, Bankstown, Inner West, Northern, Cumberland, Airport and East Hills, South and North Shore lines.

Most are free, while some of the others cost up to $2.99.

Meanwhile Perth and Sydney are still the only Australian cities to have public transport support within Google Maps, with no word yet on whether the Victorian Government/Google negotiations have actually progressed at all.
