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.
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.
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 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.
