What's New in Version 7

To sit or not to sit, that is the question. Sometimes travellers need to know how busy the train is going to be, especially when we have kids in tow or with baggage headed to the airport. Mostly because we all enjoy the journey that much more when it’s less crowded.

BusyBot is here to solve this problem. Once your train has departed, BusyBot will pop into life on the 'live tracker’ screen, tell it how busy your train is and BusyBot will get smarter. So smart in fact that in a few weeks’ time it will start to predict how busy each train is on your route. Soon you will be able to plan your journey around your comfort and not just the time and price of the ticket, for the very first time, ever. BusyBot is smart with your help; the more we feed it, the smarter it gets. BusyBot solves the unsolvable using the power of our amazing customers. Take a bow, you rock.
