What's New in Version 23
One universal search
Good design makes a product useful, as Dieter Rams would say, it emphasises the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.
So our new universal search is our most useful upgrade yet, it combines our two search tools - Live times and Plan & buy into one, Universal search. Enter just a departure station to see a traditional ‘live departures’ board or go all in and put your destination too. We will always show you live train times and platforms if available wherever and however you search.
Never search again!
Once you have experienced our universal search, everyone can now favourite their regular journeys - tap the star icon - to create a personalised live departure board. You can even choose to show or hide pricing to suit whether you are a commuter or an infrequent traveller watching prices.
Simple and to the point, Thetrainline's iPhone app is a great mobile tool for commuters
