A TRAIN company running services through Worcester has launched a travel planning phone device.

London Midland says the "super-fast" application, available on mobile phones, will give passengers their own up-to-the-minute travel information.

"Our brand new app is both intelligent and user friendly," said Richard Brooks, London Midland’s commercial director.

"And, for the first time we time we are able to cater for the ever-increasing number of Android users that want information at their fingertips."

He said those who download the application will be able to check train times for services across the whole of the UK as well as checking live information and alternative routes.

Both apps are available to download from the App Store and Google Play.
