Tech-savvy NSW seniors embrace transport apps
NSW Seniors can learn how to plan public transport routes, check bus or train timetables in ‘real’ time, and top up their Gold Opal cards online as part of the state government’s new Tech Savvy Seniors Transport App workshop.
Minister for Transport Andrew Constance said the new workshop would be available through the Tech Savvy Seniors program.
Mr Constance said participants in the new workshop would learn how to operate three of the most common transport apps used for navigating public transport in NSW.
“Websites and apps have changed the way we travel and I’m thrilled to see this important course now available to help seniors get familiar with our own Transport for NSW’s Trip Planner app, the Opal Travel app and Moovit,” he said.
Delivered in partnership with Telstra, the Tech Savvy Seniors program will provide free or low-cost training through a network of community colleges and libraries to help seniors learn to use computers, tablets and smartphones.
More than 65,000 seniors have participated so far.
