Our first priority was to make it as easy as possible for customers to find out the train times for the current day and when the next train would be running. To do this, we developed a custom widget to appear on the homepage showing upcoming departures, the route which the train would be taking, and the stations it would be stopping at. We also built in the ability for the customer to choose which station they wanted to board the train at and their direction of travel. This made it much simpler for passengers to plan their journeys, as well as ensuring that the times the train would reach each station were easily accessible.
Alongside this, we also created a timetable and calendar layout which can be fully managed via the CMS. This allowed the Swanage team to colour code dates on the calendar to display different services and events, as well as to link the run-time details to the relevant days to provide a clear and friendly guide for planning future visits.
