Public transportation delays are an inevitable part of life for commuters. Although there is nothing that can be done to stop those delays, the TravAlarm app offers an intuitive alternative.
TravAlarm operates with all of the usual functions of a smart phone journey planner and alarm clock, but the free app differentiates itself by being equipped to receive live Tube, Subway, Rail and Bus traffic delay information from local transit authorities. That information is used to alert commuters to a delay on their usual transportation line and wake them up earlier to avoid the hassle of running behind and waiting in cold wet stations. That also allows users to decide if they’d like to opt for a different route or transportation method, or to just leave early to make up for the delay.
You can also use TravAlarm as your personal music and radio player and plan your journeys as you go about your day and TravAlarm will keep you updated on delays on any of those journeys. It can also wake you up when you get close to your destination so you never have to worry about falling asleep on the train or bus and waking up hours away from home. Beat travel delays and find the best travel companion in the TravAlarm app!
