East Midlands Trains launches mobile website

  • Live  departure and arrival information and journey planning available
  • New site also allows customers to buy tickets on the move
  • Re-launch of full website also offers improved layout with easy accessible information

East Midlands Trains has launched a new mobile friendly website, allowing customers to buy tickets, check train times and plan their journeys whilst on the move.

The new mobile site is specifically designed to be accessed on mobile devices and offers East Midlands Trains customers a range of the most popular options to help them plan their journey.  Customers can search for and buy the cheapest ticket available, plan a train journey or check arrival and departure times for any station in the UK.   

The launch of East Midlands Trains’ new mobile website follows feedback from customers and has been driven by the need to provide improved information for people on the move.

Marc Turley, Head of Commercial for East Midlands Trains, said:  “We know that more and more people are using smartphones and mobile devices to plan their journeys with us.  These devices also play a vital role in keeping people informed with the latest information on our services whilst on the move.

“All of our services to London now have on-board WiFi and we’ll shortly be starting the roll-out of free WiFi at 30 of our stations so people will be able to connect to our new mobile website even more easily.”

In addition to the mobile website, East Midlands Trains has also launched a new main website at eastmidlandstrains.co.uk.  The new-look website has been updated to make it even easier for customers to find all the information they need in one place, from station and ticket information, to the service offered on board East Midlands Trains’ services.  

The new homepage also features a Live Information tool to make it quicker for customers to find up to date information on their service.  Booking a ticket is now even easier, with access to a new and improved booking tool on every page of the website.

Marc continues: “Our new and improved booking tool is now displayed on every page throughout our website, meaning that customers can quickly and easily find the best and cheapest tickets for any train journey around the UK.  Our website also offers the cheapest tickets for any journey on our network, so we’d advise anybody to visit eastmidlandstrains.co.uk to get the best deal.”
