Now get SMS delay alerts at halt stations
New Delhi: Passengers awaiting the arrival of their trains at halt stations along the route will now get SMS delay alerts if their train is more than an hour late, the Railways said on Wednesday, extending the service to cover 1,104 more trains.
The service was started for 102 premium trains on November 3 last year and was extended to 157 more trains later. It was restricted to people boarding at the departure station only.
Now, travellers boarding at halt stations all along the route will also receive alerts.
"Passengers at halt stations too can now anticipate when the train will arrive at their destination, making planning travel much easier," said a senior official of the Railway Board.
