Here is a list of 4 Android Apps to Check Indian Railway Train Schedule. These apps are specifically meant for Indian users who would like to know about the schedule of Trains running on various routes in Indian Railways. While most of these apps allow you to see the train schedules, some even have the options to see the current train status, do PNR Enquiry, check seat availability, or even book Indian Railway tickets directly!
You should also take a look at RailCal for Android which can show you the Seat Availability and Trains running between stations in a 2 month calendar-view.
ixigo for Android is one of the best and most popular options out there for getting all your travel planning dealt with. Ixigo is not just your run-of-the-mill train enquiry app, but more of a one-stop shop, for all your travel needs related to Indian Railways. You can use ixigo to inquire about anything from the current train schedules, to even hotels for stay during your travel. It allows you to Search for Trains on particular routes, Search for Trains by Number, Check Live Running status of trains, PNR Status, Rescheduled trains, and almost everything related to Indian Railways. Check it out for yourself (that is, if you haven’t yet)!
NTES (or National Train Enquiry System,) is the official service provided by IRCTC which lets Indian travelers take note of the running status of trains. The official NTES app for Android lets you do almost everything that the Web interface allows you to do. NTES lets you see the Train Schedule, and even the Rescheduled trains. Additionally, you can spot the location of your train, see the Live Station status, and even Diverted trains. This app is surely a must-have for all frequent travelers in the Indian subcontinent.
Cleartrip is a popular travel planning website, and not unlike the website itself, the official Cleartrip app for Android is also extremely convenient. While it has numerous options for Flights and Hotels, it is a great app for checking out Train Schedules as well. Not just that, Cleartrip for Android allows you to book Train tickets right from within the app! The process of connecting your Cleartrip Account to IRCTC Account might be a bit of a hassle, but the convenience you get after that, more than makes up for it.
RailYatri for Android is a third-party app which allows you to see the see the Time Tables for specific trains. Not just that, you can also see the Live Train Status, check PNR Status, Seat Availability, etc. The Time Table option is in the slide-out sidebar, and tapping on it will take you to the Train Schedule for a specific route. I did notice one really intuitive feature which warns you of the probability of a train being delayed or rescheduled due to fog (see the third screenshot above).
This list of 4 Android Apps to Check Indian Railway Train Schedule is hereby concluded. Go on folks, there’s nothing stopping you now from planning your next adventure! Hit the roads, err, I mean rails!
