Packed full of smarts

Train travel can be tricky, but it doesn't have to be.

From finding you cheap train tickets to figuring out where that elusive empty seat might be, our helpful bots make sure you're always one step ahead.

To find BusyBot visit the Journey tracker (in your app) and you’ll see highlights on the least busy zones of the train – front, back or middle. If you spot a question mark it’s because BusyBot relies on crowd-sourced data, complete the 2 question survey on that leg of the journey to help us get a clear view of how busy the train is.

If you do find a preferable seat using BusyBot make sure to check that there isn’t a reservation for the journey leg you’ll be sat there.

Introducing Trainline's Voice App

Trainline’s voice app is the UK’s most advanced voice-activated rail app and brings Trainline’s rail expertise to the Google Assistant - Google’s powerful conversational platform.

The Trainline app for the Google Assistant is now available on eligible Android phones, on the Assistant app on iOS, and on Assistant-enabled devices like Google Home. Trainline’s voice app allows rail travellers to “talk to Trainline” by asking everyday travel questions about their journey, with real-time updates on details that matter most, like timetables and delays

Our voice app can provide information on rail journeys both on-the-day/at the time of travel and in the future, share journey times and delays in real-time, provide contextual information such as weather updates and can be taught to retain information such as a daily commute for faster results.

Through machine learning, the more our voice app is used the smarter it gets, as it will learn to recognise new phrases and commands, as well as individual travel habits, such as commutes.
