New Delhi: Two months into its launch in a new avatar, over 55 lakh travellers have visited the trainenquiry.Com website for an update on train status.
"Users are finding train information search faster and more convenient at the site making it a preferred option," said co-founder of Railyatri.in Manish Rathi which is powering the site.
Several more passenger related features are expected to be added to the site in the coming weeks which include station specific enquiries and information about any disruptions, he said. Other value added services such as cab rentals for passengers could also be introduced.
The search options have been made much easier, relieving the passengers from the burden of remembering the train number etc, giving results in just 20 seconds, he said.
The site also provides live information about the exact location of the train, preparing their journey accordingly.
The new looking site is the outcome of a partnership between CRIS, the IT division of Indian Railways and Railyatri.in. "Lot of thought and insights had gone into conceptualising and designing the new web version. While we are still in Beta of this product, it is very satisfactory to see and hear positive feedback from such significant number of users within few months," said group general manager of CRIS Sunil Bajpai.
As per Railyatri, the new version has been designed keeping in mind the regular passengers, savvy/non-savvy computer users, and also railway personnel themselves.
