ServiceWA app upgrade to keep WA drivers informed of petrol prices
Tuesday, 7 June 2022
- ServiceWA app upgrades will ensure users have easy access to FuelWatch
- Interactive functionality and map will show fuel prices available near users
- Next addition to ServiceWA app continues journey in redefining the way Western Australians interact with government services
The McGowan Government has updated its ServiceWA app to include FuelWatch, providing an easy to navigate, interactive map allowing users to find the best fuel price deal across Western Australia.
The addition of FuelWatch to the ServiceWA app is the next step toward redefining how Western Australians interact with government services in a digital world. The McGowan Government is exploring the inclusion of additional features, including:
- Seniors Card; and
- Emergency notifications (via Emergency WA).
The ServiceWA app was launched in January, and first provided Western Australians a free, convenient and secure mobile application that played a major role in seeing WA through its Safe Transition phase, allowing people to show proof of vaccination, check in at businesses and venues, and access their G2G Pass for interstate travel.
With nearly all previous COVID-19 restrictions eased - the ServiceWA app will now transform and be expanded with new government services offered within the app.
The app continues to provide access to important COVID-19 information, including how to prepare your household for COVID-19, where to get tested and where to get vaccinated.
With nearly all previous COVID-19 restrictions eased, now is the best time for the app to expand its list of services.
The ServiceWA app has been downloaded over 1.2 million times, and the addition of FuelWatch will allow for users to conveniently access fuel prices when and where they need to. FuelWatch can still be accessed through its website: www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au.
For more information about the app visit the ServiceWA app or phone 13 33 WA (13 33 92).
