Cape Town train times on your mobile

first_imgIt’s now as easy as picking up your cellphone to find out the train schedules in Cape Town.Commuters using the Southern and Northern lines in the Cape Town metro can now get the schedules of the train times via their cell phones. (Image: Cape Town Travel)Brand South Africa reporterGrapevine Interactive, a mobile services firm, has launched a free mobile internet site for Cape Town metro train users of the Southern and Northern lines.Until now, commuters have found it very difficult to get hold of metro train schedules without either physically being at a station or having access to a computer. Now it’s as easy as picking up your cellphone.With more commuters shifting from car to train transport as their most cost-effective option, especially due to the recent fuel price hikes, there is an increased demand for rapid access to train timetable data.Although one can access schedules via a PC connected to the internet, a number of commuters indicated a need for a simple, easy-to-access timetable service on their mobile phones.Standard daily train allows anyone with a WAP-capable cellphone to access the standard daily train schedules for the Southern line from Cape Town-to-Simonstown, and the Northern line from Cape Town-to-Bellville.The schedules work in either direction, include all stations in-between and take into account week days, weekends and public holidays. Special train times are not included.The CTTrains mobi site was initially created as a training exercise for new cellphone application developers at Grapevine Interactive, but it soon became apparent that the greater Cape Town community could make use of this easy-to-use tool.Free-of-charge serviceGrapevine Interactive has now launched the system to commuters as a free service, except for data charges that may be incurred by the mobile operators. The public schedules are accurately reproduced by the service, but unfortunately if there are cancellations Grapevine will not be notified about it.Cliff Court, Grapevine Interactive’s chief technology officer, said in discussing the mobi site: “Once we had developed the site and had shown it to a few train users, it became clear that this was tremendously useful to them. We then decided to offer the system as a free-of-charge service for commuters.”Grapevine Interactive has included a feedback option within the mobi site so that the public can let them know what they think of the site and how it can be improved for even more convenience. If the usage of the site is high, Grapevine Interactive has undertaken to add additional line schedules as well.Source: South African Press Association.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
