GoWest is a travel planner for Västtrafik. You can search for journeys or next departures by bus, tram, boat and train. GoWest use a simple and clean user interface to speed up and ease your travel planning. Your search history is saved and you have the possibility to save your most used stops as favorites.
With real time information ( Västtrafik only support this for Gothenburg , Skövde and Borås ) you will get a more accurate plan for your travels.

Some of the features in GoWest - Västtrafik are:
• Search nearby stops and the possibility to show them on map so you can easily navigate yourself to find them.
• Searching a trip will show you both real time (if available) and the scheduled time of both departures and arrivals
• The possibility to show the searched route on a map with all stops and the path of the trip drawn on the map

Widget ( next departure for Västtrafik )

GoWest also provide you with a widget which shows you real time information about a saved route. The widget lets you swap the route direction so you can use the same widget both ways. For example if you choose a route from your home to where you go to school you can change the direction to show you the next trips from your school to your home.
The widget also lets you open the same route search-window as the application use so you can get a more detailed list of a route and show it on a map.

GoWest use Västtrafik API to retrieve data. Every time you search for stops or journeys Västtrafik is contacted.

    Please add hints for buttons to improve accessibility (long pressing buttons in the action bar should show action name).

    Fantastic app. Intuitive, far easier to use than the Västtrafik (official) app. The inclusion of maps is very helpful. Thank you for this app! I need it!

    Nästan varje gång jag ska skriva vart jag ska till/från, "vibrerar" texten man skriver vilket gör att alternativ listan har svårt att förstå vart man ska.

    Håller med alla som säger att denna app är mycket bättre än Västtrafik's egna. Den känns betydligt snabbare och är snyggare än Västtrafik's portade iPhone app. Det finns dock två funktioner från Västtrafik's app som jag saknar i denna; 1. Att spara resor i kalendern, upplever att påminnelse funktionen inte är helt pålitlig.. 2. Att få fram priset för en resa. Känner mig petig som pekar på des
