About this app

Comprehensive Travel Information Gateway for Bangladesh Railway designed, developed, managed and operated by SUNCROPS Ltd. in accordance with an agreement signed between these two in May, 2013.

This app encompasses following features:
- Train Searching
- Fare Calculation
- Train Tracking including Geographic Location
- Routing on Map
- Arrival Alert
- Lost & Found
- Emergency Medical Attention

Upon permission from BR, Ticketing and Freight Booking options will be activated in near future.

---------------------

“BR Explorer” (including Train Tracking through SMS via port 16318) is a byproduct of Train Tracking and Monitoring System to assist Bangladesh Railway(BR) operating it’s Train Fleet, which helps to visualize, guide and manage it’s entire fleet in “real time” from four Traffic Control Offices (Dhaka, Chittagong, Paksey and Lalmonirhat).

As of inherent nature, the software is a GIS based Application having vector map of BR assets only, independent of Google or any such Third Party Map, having it’s own “intranet network” (not internet), encompassing all Locomotives (appx. 250) fitted with specially designed GPS Tracking Transceivers, having it’s own dedicated Central Server (and four Slave Servers at four Traffic Control Offices connected via BR Optical Link).

As this kind of Software is not predesigned which can be bought off the shelf, which had to be developed from scratch, BR invited an open tender in 2013 on conditions that the bidder would design, develop, operate and manage the system on its own (the bidder) cost and recover the expenses from commercial use of byproduct, that is the Train Tracking Information to general users. Eventually SUNCROPS Ltd. won the project, and since December 2013, proudly and passionately running the system with its own intelligence and finance. The system is being monitored and managed 24x7 by a contingent of 20 SUNCROPS Engineers.

The cost of searching train location is very high, it should be reduced. After all, this app is very useful from the first time i have ever seen from Railway. It pretty good to use and operate, nice interface. It looks all the time give us correct information when we track the train location. Great to see wish you good luck for the next.

It was very good when I first installed it. After a month or two, now the balance is over and when I try to recharge/buy package, the app keeps closing. I uninstalled it and then again installed several times. There's this new issue now - I'm not receiving any OTP!! I tried using different sim, different phone. Nothing is working. What's the solution?
