We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded Department of Transport (DfT) funding to develop an AI tool to assist Train Operating Companies (TOCs) make better train planning decisions during disruption, as part of the Innovate UK’s First of a Kind 3 competition.
While rows between the government and unions are nothing new, this one encouraged me to get on my soapbox. According to a recent article by Rail Technolgy Magazine, the DfT has “called for new technologies to revolutionise travel for older people and those with disabilities, but the RMT has “reacted with disgust” to its suggestions that travel apps can replace staff.”
With the opening of the Elizabeth Line getting closer, MTR needed to make sure that their platform staff would be able to deliver route and travel information quickly to new passengers. Having designed and developed their website, MTR approached us with a new challenge: to create the MTR Crossrail Customer Experience Mobile App.
We are thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted in the MTR Crossrail Celebrating You: Supplier & Partner of the Year Award for our MTR Crossrail Customer Experience mobile App.
At their annual Celebrating You awards, MTR Crossrail celebrate the achievements of their employees and partner companies.
This year’s Celebrating You awards evening will be taking place on the 12th of May and promises to be an exciting event, showcasing some of the best achievements of MTR Crossrail employees and partners companies.
Like coal and steam engines, peak and off-peak ticket pricing could be a thing of the past after train operators have called for a major reform of the rail fare system. The shake-up could mean that over 150 years of the rail pricing model could be replaced by the rollout of ‘tap-in, tap-out’ travel nationwide.
In this guest post, freelance journalist Lydia Wilkins describes what it's like to be autistic and to have "no filter", which affects her experiences using public transport.
This past year has been very exciting for both JNCTION and for innovation in the rail sector, so we wanted a new website which reflected our position in the market.
We were recently interviewed by the wonderful Lydia Wilkins at Mademoiselle Women blog about our Aubin Journey Planner app.
JNCTION was invited to deliver a presentation to CRRC Corporation Ltd covering the topic of Innovation in the UK rail sector on 12th July 2018.
We are now going full speed ahead developing Aubin, the journey planner app for autistic people - but we need your help!
We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as one of seven companies to receive government funding as part of the RSSB’s Rail Accessibility Competition for Aubin: our first-of-its-kind Autism Journey Planner App.
Aubin started with a conversation with one of our clients about creating a travel app for autistic children. One of our team, who is parent to an autistic teenager came up with the suggestion of a needs focused journey planner based on travel preferences, rather than the quickest route. As a team we discussed how a journey planner could be made to tackle the issues faced by autistic people when using public transport and from this the idea behind Aubin was born.
For the past few months, we have been working with train operator London Midland as part of their LMLabs Cohort 2 programme. LMLabs is an innovation lab and startup accelerator that brings together new technology projects, and customer experience research.
We are pleased to announce that our Aubin: Journey Planner App for Autistic People has been selected as one of 10 projects to take part in the London Midland Labs Accelerator programme in Birmingham.
We worked with Northern Rail to provide them a knowledge base app that would revolutionise their operation notices process.
JNCTION is the new name for Artonezero's rail related products and services. JNCTION's goal is to provide exceptional Web, App and Big Data Digital Rail solutions for improving passenger journey experiences. Unlike traditional suppliers we aim to deliver solutions in months not years and to be an 'easy to work with' delivery partner for rail companies.
We are very pleased to announce that JNCTION's Lorolpedia custom knowledge base app was submitted as part of London Overground's award winning portfolio for Rail Technology Magazine’s Passenger Experience Award 2016.
