How does TrainTracker work?
TrainTracker uses speech recognition which lets you say what you want.
TrainTracker then looks up the estimated train times from our Live Departure and Arrivals Boards and speaks this information to you.
TrainTracker can also be accessed on station-specific numbers and is useful if you regularly travel to or from the same station.
