In the 'Profile' tab, there's an option to show service alerts for public transport. In this screen, you can see all the alerts for a certain mode of transport or search for alerts on a particular bus route, train or tram line.

How do I find the cheapest, fastest, or most eco-friendly trip?

We all have different travel priorities.

arevo caters for this by allowing you to prioritise your travel by money, time, carbon, convenience, and exercise.

The app prompts you to set your priorities when you sign up, but if you skipped this step or you've changed your mind, you can always adjust this later by going to 'Profile' > 'Settings' > 'Priorities'. The duration, price and CO2 emissions of your trip are clearly displayed for each travel option, and you can filter for these at the top of the search page as well.

priorities screen arevo

 

 

Will I be able to select my preferred mode of transport?

Of course!

We all have our own preferences for different modes of transport and not all of us have a car/bike/Myki. arevo lets you select the modes of transport you use often, minimise those you use occasionally, and remove others that you don't use so they won't appear in your searches.

Go to 'Profile' > 'Settings' > 'Transport' to select your personal transport preferences. You can also change these preferences on a trip-by-trip basis as part of the journey planner. When you're looking at your trip options, simply click on 'Transport' in the top right corner of the screen to select your preferred modes of transport for the trip.

Can I book my journey through arevo?

Stay tuned.

arevo currently enables you to top up your myki card and book an Uber ride within the app. You'll be sent to our partners' apps to complete any carshare, bikeshare or car parking bookings. We are working towards a single wallet environment where all transport can be booked directly within arevo so stay tuned.

 

What are favourites?

Favourites are your personal 'greatest hits' collection.

They're your preferred destinations, e.g. your home, work, gym, or even the local pub. They can be managed in the 'Favourites' tab.

Adding favourites will allow you to get quick journey results from your current location. If you add a public transport stop to your favourites, you'll see departure information for that stop, such as time until the next train to or from the city.

favourites screen arevo

 

 

Will the app include turn-by-turn directions?

It will indeed!

The app will bounce you off to Google or Apple Maps when you turn on the actual turn-by-turn navigation.

 

I want to save a trip - can I do that?

Save yourself.

You sure can. Just search for and select your chosen trip, and a 'share' icon will appear in the top right corner of your screen. Tap on the icon and then select 'Add to Favourites' from the list of pop-up options.

Payments and bookings

How do I top up my myki card?

Linking your myki to arevo is simple.

Go to the 'myki' tab and fill in your myki username and password. This will send you to a page where you can add myki cards and quickly top up by choosing an amount (for myki money) or number of days (for a myki pass). Just like that, you're good to go! Definitely beats waiting in line when you're late for the train...

Will my myki balance be up to date?

myki top-ups in 30 minutes? Sorted!

myki top-ups are usually processed within 30 minutes, at which point your myki balance will be updated. In some rare instances, however, it can take up to 90 minutes for the top-up to process and 24 hours for the balance to be updated.

 

Can I see my top-up history for both in-app top-ups and myki machine top-ups?

Your history tells a story.

Your myki balance in arevo will always be accurate and include all forms of top-ups.

 

Will arevo store my credit card information?

The security of your personal information is important to us.

Your credit card information is only stored on your device, and it is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
