With a view to provide real-time information on train services to rail users, South Central Railway today brought out a new smartphone app ‘TADAAST’ (Train Arrival Departure And Amenities at Stations).
“This innovative app is aimed at disseminating information on the current status of arrivals and departures of trains on a live basis and also details of various passenger facilities provided at 25 identified major stations on South Central Railway (SCR) Zone,” said SCR General Manager P K Srivastava after launching the app at Rail Nilayam here.
Other useful features such as scheduled timetable and location of the station with route via Google maps have also been incorporated exclusively for each of the 25 stations in this app, he said.
“In addition, detailed stations layouts with icons showing the specific location of passenger amenities are also included in this app for Secunderabad, Hyderabad and Kacheguda stations,” he said, adding that ‘TADAAST’ is an app tailored primarily to take care of the public enquiry needs related to train services and amenities.
The data in this app can be seen in three languages –English, Hindi or Telugu.
‘TADAAST’ app can be downloaded and installed for free from Google Play Store (on android-based smartphone) or Apple App Store (on iOS-based smartphone), an SCR release said.
