Pakistan Railways is launching a new smartphone app for e-ticketing
Pakistan Railways is launching a new and updated smartphone app to help users purchase tickets online and track the timings of their trains.
According to sources, the app will make use of special trackers to provide accurate speed and location of trains to users. Railways have been internally testing trackers on a select few trains to gauge the performance of the app and its tracking features. The results have shown that the app is working accurately nearly 100 percent of the time, making the project a huge success.
These trackers will now be installed on all trains and they will provide accurate speed, location, and timing information to customers.
The app will also allow users to easily buy tickets, providing a much better user experience as compared to the current app which is available for purchasing tickets.
The app will soon be available to all users and will be managed by Pakistan Railways, with all the revenue from the app going solely to the government authority.
