Trainline has landed on Apple Watch

Welcome to Trainline on Apple Watch! We’ve designed one of the first travel apps in the UK that brings the latest innovations from our mobile app to your wrist.

Apple Watches Ribbon

Our Apple Watch app works seamlessly with your Trainline iPhone app to help you access all the on-time info you need to make your journey smoother, from start to finish. After getting directions to the nearest station on a map, your app tells you exactly how long you’ve got until your train leaves, so no more mad dashes and sloshing coffees. We’ll even tell you which platform to head to (we’re nice like that). Live journey progress gives you clear info on your expected time of arrival at each station en-route, as well as the platform you’ll be arriving at, so that special someone can meet you with a bunch of flowers. If you’ve already purchased your tickets, Apple Watch will show you the booking reference you need to collect them from the station’s ticket machines.

Key Features

  • Gives you directions to nearest railway stations on a map.
  • Tells you how long until your train departs, and what platform to go to at a glance.
  • Monitors the live progress of your train, gets arrival times for each station and which platforms you’ll be arriving at.
  • Presents your booking reference for collecting tickets at the station.

Download our App

“How do I get it?” we hear you ask… Just sync your new Apple Watch with your iPhone, and Trainline’s features become available (you need to have an iPhone with our free mobile app installed to use the Apple Watch app).

Coming to a wrist near you from April 24th

3 Ways to smash January (NSFJ)

WARNING: This blog is NSFJ (not safe for January)

Struggling to stick to those lofty new year’s resolutions? Moaning through a month on mineral water. We’re here for you! We think its time for you to break those New Year’s resolutions, and break them in style.

1. Don’t go dry, head to a beer festival!

No Alcohol? All January? That sounds awfully difficult. If you’re about to cave in, be civilised about it! January boasts some marvellous drinking events to wet even the thirstiest whistle. Why not try Manchester’s Beer & Cider Festival, featuring over 300 cask ales along with traditional ciders and perries, real ale in a bottle and both bottled and draught foreign beers. Check out trains to Manchester.beer flight

2. Don’t go to the gym, head outdoors!

Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 13.02.02 Forget that pricey gym membership, changing room awks and protein shakes (you know it’s not going to last). So what if its cold! Man-up, grab your duffel coat head to the Lake District for your exercise fix. Who needs central heating and talcum powder anyway? Take a look at trains to the Lake District.

3. Don’t save money (except on train travel) Its time to treat yourself!
