UK Bus Checker gets Live Train Times

Bus Checker Train StopBoard Low QualityFrom today, the successful UK Bus Checker app will include live train times for every station in the United Kingdom.

Users can now tap on any railway station in the UK for an instant departure board. Also included are up-to-date delays and disruption information – plus the platform number for each train.

The info displayed is the same official data that’s displayed in UK railways stations, sourced live from National Rail Enquiries.  And the train stations themselves are fully integrated into the app; users can plan journeys to/from them, or even add them to your favourites on your Today/Home screen or Apple Watch.
