RailYatri has launched a push notifications based Android app 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”.
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.
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.
