To create a Journey Plan, tap ‘Select a Station’ on your home page. Then select ‘From’ and ‘To’. You can then choose ‘Date’ and ‘Time’ by tapping the clock icon. When you’ve got the right date and time, tap ‘Done’ which returns you to the previous screen – then tap ‘Search’. This will bring up five options.
You can select ‘First’ or ‘Last’ which brings up the first and last services in the day; you can tap ‘Arrive’ to find trains that will arrive at an exact time; you can tap ‘Earlier’ or ‘Later’ to see more options, or you can tap ‘Now’ for trains that depart immediately.
You can also see the cheapest fares available (First and Standard).
The app shows you the current status of each journey, such as whether it’s running on time, if it’s cancelled or whether there are any disruptions to service. You’ll also usually see which platform the train will depart from, the duration of the journey and if you need to make any changes on the way.
You can view ‘More Details’ for any journey and you’ll see station names and Mode of Transport for each leg – for example, train, tube, bus, ferry. If London Underground forms part of your journey, you’ll be able to view Tube Route Advice.
If you hold your finger on any service for a few seconds, a pop-up will be displayed which lets you see your To and From stations on Google Maps.
To add any journey to your home page, just tap ‘Save’.
