Over 600 people have downloaded a new app called travelWatford which gives them real time information on cleaner, greener and faster ways to get around town.
The app which is available on IOS and Android, brings together all of Watford’s transport options and lets people choose the best mode of transport for a given journey based on cost, waiting time and environmental impact.
By simply entering the address you want to go to, the app, drawing from large banks of data, provides information on all the potential modes of transport you could use to get to your destination including: trains, fixed route buses, on-demand bus, bike share, private hire, mini-cabs, parking, walking, cycling, EV charging and car clubs. Users have access to real time travel information, and key booking and payment options.
Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said “I am pleased that along with our new bike share scheme we have introduced something that helps people move around our town and makes it easier to get the latest travel information. This new app will help make it easier for people to access taxi, train, bus, bike share and Arriva Click services in Watford with live information and an easy to use booking system. Improving our town’s public transport and tackling congestion was one of my key promises when I was elected as Mayor and I am delighted we are delivering on it.”
