Automatic push notifications do away with the need to follow-up on train-related updates

With the onset of winter, everyone is busy making holiday plans. However, when it comes to train travel, there are a number of hiccups – waiting lists, delays due to fogs, train cancellation, extra coaches or special trains. For the first time, users will no longer have to be glued to websites or find their travel status only after reaching the station. RailYatri has launched a push notifications based Android app (http://bit.ly/RYAndroidApp) with localized and personalized information of 5000 trains and 8000 locations in India. Users can simply visit Google Play Store from their Android mobile device and search for “RailYatri”.

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 send 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.

“With this app, our focus is to provide a continuous flow of information to traveler’s proactively. This will help them plan their trip better. RailYatri app is a must have for every train traveller in India” said Manish Rathi, CEO and Co-Founder, RailYatri.in.

To get maximum value from the app, users can set the particular train (or route) as favourite as soon as the travel plan is finalized. In case there is an alert they will be notified. Alerts can be issued more than a month in advance, so the earlier they set their favourites, the more time they will have to plan.

The app can be customized to filter alerts by multiple trips, routes and/or stations set as favorites. In fact, the RailYatri app includes an exclusive database of local events leading to heavy rush and warns the users in advance if they are travelling through any such ‘hotspot’ station.

This application is currently available on Android and consumers can visit this link to download: http://bit.ly/RYAndroidApp
