Planning to take your bike on a train? There’s an app for that

Bikes and trains: it’s always been a slightly fraught relationship. But now, thanks to the Association of Train Operating Companies’ (ATOC) Integrated Transport team and National Rail Enquiries, that’s changing.

Version four of the NRE app – available free for iPhone and Android – has been updated so that anyone planning to cycle to a rail station or take their bike on a train can quickly and easily find out about cycling facilities at stations, and the rules for taking bikes on trains.

To see it for yourself go here for iOS or here for Android.
