Mobile ticket technology company Masabi says the mobile rail ticket purchase application it developed for thetrainline.com now supports most smartphones and conventional handsets. Mobile users can search train times and buy tickets using a credit or debit card before picking up their tickets at the station. The application will also display tickets as secure on-screen barcodes when rail operators start supporting this feature.
Ben Whitaker, CEO of Masabi, said “While there are millions of phone users in the UK, the majority have been left out of the apps revolution. We are delighted to be working with thetrainline.com to allow users to buy tickets anywhere, anytime on everyday handsets as well as high-end smartphones.”
The application is available from all major app stores or by texting TRAIN to 86688 (charges will apply). An updated Android version is due in the next few weeks.
