Check a Journey on the Web
The user is initially presented with a route filter on the left and a summary of all the updates on the right.
If the user wants to filter the updates by a particular route he enters the from and to stations and presses Go. He will then be presented with diagram of the route with the stations on either end and the disruptions and boards in between. If the TOC connects to the underground network, underground updates will be connected to either of the station nodes.
The route diagram can contain the following updates depending on how JourneyCheck is configured for the TOC:
- Engineering Works
- General Updates – updates that are neither line or service updates, e.g. an update about a station or something that affects the whole of the TOC’s network.
- Line Updates – an update about a part of the rail network
- Service Updates – an update about a particular service
- Departure & Arrival Boards
- Underground Updates
A period for engineering works can be specified – today, next 7 days, next 30 days or all.
You can show calling stations for service updates including scheduled and expected times and whether it’s not stopping at certain stations.
The boards are sourced from RTTI which is the same information presented on national rail’s website. The boards show scheduled and expected times and also
platform numbers if available for that station.
The calling stations for each service can be displayed. Your selected from and to stations will be highlighted.
A number of routes can be saved on your computer so you can go back to them quickly. You can also set a default route so that when you open JourneyCheck it
will initially display the default route.
When you have a route displayed you can also press the “Alert Me” button and it will setup an alert for that route.
