Chiltern launch new free app with live departure info

Until recently the only way to get live departure information in an App would be to pay  a whopping £4.99 - something you can now get for free from Chiltern Railways.

The real time feature adds to the integrated mobile ticketing application that the company released earlier in the year, which also enables customers to book any train tickets without a booking fee.

The acclaimed App has been Apple’s App of the Week and also featured in The Gadget Show on Five.

Like other train company Apps, it can be used for any train journey in the UK - benefitting travellers across the country.

Thomas Ableman, Director of Chiltern Railways said: “We are always looking at how we can improve the service we give to our customers. One of the key ways we can do this is to ensure that our customers have access to real time information at all times and for all operators. Our app also gives our customers the ability to buy, receive and display tickets. It really is a one stop app for everything you need for travelling by train.”
