Chiltern Railways Named ‘iPhone App of the Week’ on App Store

Chiltern Railways has been named 'App of the Week' for iPhone on the Apple App Store!

The Chiltern Railways app, developed in conjunction with Masabi and Atos Origin, was launched on the 11th May and has since seen widespread media coverage from high-profile publications such as the Financial Times and the Gadget Show.

Using the app, you can check train times and buy tickets on your mobile phone, then - on certain routes - have the ticket sent to your phone, allowing you to use your phone as the ticket. For the first time, passengers arriving at a station without a ticket will be able to get through the barrier within seconds, without needing to queue at ticket offices, contact a call centre or negotiate ticket machines.

To get the app, text 'CHILTERN' to 88600 or visit your device's official app store.
