SOUTHEASTERN trains have released a new app to provide real-time information for its routes.

Called On Track, it identifies nearest stations, provides train-running information and can be used to buy train and car park tickets.

It also gives one-touch phone contact to customer services and to claim compensation if a journey is delayed.

Managing director Charles Horton said: "Our new On Track app provides truly-personalised information to passengers whilst on the move.

"We know everyone’s travel habits are different. So, we wanted to create a smart, fast, ‘assistant’ at your fingertips – something tailored to suit regular commuters or occasional travellers."

It can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
