National Rail Enquiries’ new mobile app is huge hit for UK travelers
The app has reached one million downloads in only three months proving travelers’ growing reliance on real-time mobile updates and the benefits of making open data on city transportation public.
Excerpt from The Next Web
Back in May, we reported on the launch of National Rail Enquiries’ real-time mobile apps for UK travelers. And well, it seems it has proven pretty popular, with a million downloads under its belt since launch.
The app features most of National Rail Enquiries’ online tools, such as a real-time journey planner and live departure boards, reeling in up-to-the-minute information about disruptions and stations. Customers can also access relevant station information through the journey planner which includes links to more detailed information than what’s available on National Rail Enquiries’ mobile website. Heck, it even has a ‘wake-me-up’ alarm which alerts passengers when they reach their final destination.
