Earlier this week, RailYatri pushed a new update to its Android app that brought live train alert notifications. In short, travelers won’t have to manually check for train delays, cancellations, waiting lists as the app will automatically notify as soon as the list gets updates. RailYatri says they track live updates of 5000 trains and 8000 locations in India.
Once the user has marked his or her train or station as favourite, the app will program itself to push important alerts about events affecting train travel based on the preferences set by the user. It features alert cards that sends important alerts related to the users directly, eliminating the need to follow-up on train status the traditional way he first-of-its-kind app helps in updating with events that could affect a trip, including disruptions (cancellations, route change, delayed start), hotspots (accident sites, fog, places experiencing heavy rush) and lots more.
The app is available for free on the Google Play Store.
