New: current train length in the Reisplanner Xtra travel planner app

Travellers can now see how long their train is in the Reisplanner Xtra app. If the train is shorter than usual, for example due to a disruption or defect, then it will be displayed in the Reisplanner Xtra app. That way, you can see whether you should prepare for the train being more crowded than usual before you leave.

What the Reisplanner Xtra travel planner app can do

Saving journeys

You can save favourite journeys under ‘My journeys’. This way you do not have to re-enter them every time you need information. You can see up to date travel advice in just one glance. You can also quickly and easily check earlier and later journey times by swiping back and forth.

Planning your journey with public transport

The Reisplanner Xtra travel planner app also allows you to plan your entire journey to and from the station by bus, tram or metro.

Price based on season ticket

When you use the app, you can indicate which season ticket you have via 'settings'. After that, you can view the price of your journey in your travel advice. This setting takes into account the discount to which you are entitled at the moment you wish to travel.

Travel history

The journeys you have planned are automatically stored in your travel history. This enables you to easily find previously planned journeys.

Up to date travel information, disruptions and engineering work

You always have access to up to date travel information, so you can instantly view departure times at any chosen station. The app also provides an overview of current disruptions and engineering work across the country, including any engineering work planned over the next 10 days.

Receiving push notifications about amended timetables

When we are forced to change the train timetables as a result of weather forecasts, we will inform you in advance using push notifications.
For Android devices, go to 'Settings' in the main menu and click on the box next to "Pushberichten" (Push notifications), For IOS devices, place a check next to "Ontvang calamiteiten" (Receive emergency reports).

Train information

Using the Reisplanner Xtra app you can see which facilities are available in the train, such as WiFi, toilets and so forth. In addition, you can see exactly where the train is on its route in real time using the train radar. This train radar is currently only available for Android telephones and tablets.

Facilities at stations

You can easily see an overview of all the facilities at nearby stations or at a chosen station. The OV-fiets, Greenwheels and NS Zonetaxi locations are also shown. In addition, in the main menu under  'Services', you can book an NS Zonetaxi or check whether an OV-fiets is available at your station.

Crowd indicator

The indicator provides a forecast of the average indication of how busy the train will be and is based on past figures and the planned train length. If your chosen train is a busy one, then you can check the planner to see if an earlier or later train is less busy. You can also use the app to report how busy the train you are travelling on is.

Punctuality indicator

When you click on the arrows (Android) or options-more information (iPhone) at the top right of your travel advice screen, you will see a punctuality figure. This figure indicates how often the train was on time in the last 3 months. If you click on this punctuality percentage, you can view background information about it.

Current train length and composition

The app also shows you what kind of train is scheduled for the journey and how long it is. You can also see if it is equipped with WiFi or a bicycle compartment. It is possible that the regularly scheduled train may need to be replaced by a different type of train than planned. If the train is shorter than usual, and therefore potentially more crowded, then we will also communicate that via the Reisplanner Xtra app.
