The Pakistan Railways is planning to launch a smartphone app for helping users to buy tickets online and keep a track on the train timings.
As per sources, the app would be making use of special trackers for providing exact speed and location of trains to the users. The internet testing of the trackers has been going on a few selected trains for measuring the performance of the application and its tracking features. The results have revealed that the application is working exactly about hundred per cent of the time, hence making the project a great success.
The trackers would now be installed on all the trains and would be providing exact speed, timing information and location to the customers.
