Available as an Android and iOS app as well as a web app, Bahn: Timetable and Live Tracking is an unofficial alternative to the well-known DB Navigator. With the app, travelers are always perfectly informed, regardless of whether they are traveling in local or long-distance traffic.
With the app, you always have all the important information at hand: timetable, connections, real-time information, capacity forecasts, carriage sequence or live tracking. A Deutschlandticket filter is also brand new, with which users of the 49-euro ticket can find the best possible journeys.
Exciting live information
With just a few clicks you can search for a connection with “Bahn: timetable and live tracking” and get an overview of all trains, transfers and, if necessary, footpaths. Once you have found a suitable train connection, you can save it as a favorite and always keep an eye on it. The departure boards show you which trains are leaving the station next.
The real-time information is always up to date and also shows delays or cancellations. You can see all the stops of the train with the corresponding times, platform numbers and additional information on delays, disruptions and cancellations. A map view shows the route, all stations and the approximate location of the train.
Useful occupancy forecast
The occupancy forecast, which shows the current and predicted occupancy of the trains, is particularly practical. So you can decide in advance whether you should reserve a seat or even choose a different connection. The line-up of cars can also be viewed in the app and you can go directly to the section on the platform where the car with the reserved seat will stop.
The app also offers a live tracking feature that allows you to share your personal live link with family and friends to show how the train journey is going and when you can expect to arrive.
For commuters, frequent travelers and Deutsche Bahn employees, there is also a lot of other useful additional information such as DB lounges, train types, series, line numbers, IRIS messages and location information.
Travel planning for the 49 euro ticket
As a user of the 49-euro ticket, the Deutschlandticket filter, which is also available, should relieve you of many worries. Once set, the unofficial train app searches for routes exclusively with local and regional trains that are actually included in the Germany ticket.
