SEPTA unveils updated mobile app
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) has launched a new version of its app for Apple and Android devices.
The updated app includes a refreshed version of "TrainView," which provides visual location updates for Regional Rail trains every 30 minutes, the agency announced yesterday. The app also features an improved layout for selecting and viewing schedules and the duration of trips.
"The new app was built with customer comments and feedback in mind," said SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey Knueppel in a press release. "It offers greater ease to check schedules and find service information."
As part of a service improvement plan for its commuter-rail network, SEPTA had pledged to provide real-time information for all Regional Rail cars on its website and mobile app. The agency unveiled the improvement plan in December 2016.
