Tram Hunter

Tram Hunter is an Android client for Yarra Trams tramTRACKER® Web Service for real-time information about Melbourne's tram network.

For Terms of Use of the tramTRACKER® Web Service, see:

This application is provided with no warranty, and is licensed under GPL v3.


Tram Hunter aims to be as quick and clean as possible for getting to the data you want.

The main features of Tram Hunter are:

  • Browse or search for stops
  • Favorite stops for quick reference
  • Find nearby stops by Android location services
  • Tram icons representing the approaching tram model
  • See tram stops on a map
  • Network map
  • Yarra Trams twitter feed for latest tram network issues (Broken for now)


Tram Hunter is available from Google Play, but you can find development build from downloads section of the GitHub project.


The latest code can be found from the GitHub project site.

To build in Eclipse, just check out this code and import the android/TramHunter folder as an Existing Project.

Tram Hunter requires the excellent ActionBarSherlock library for supporting the Android Action Bar on pre-ICS devices. See for more information.
