Why is ‘Trip Sharing’ a must-have for train travelers?

In 2014, the number of registered cases of crimes against women on trains was 73, while the molestation cases were 55. The graph of crimes against women on Indian trains saw a significant rise last year, so it makes all the more sense to take extra precautions. Rising crime rates against women keep the family worried especially when women are travelling alone on a train. Trip sharing feature can cast away some of these tensions as the loved ones can then see how journey on the moving train is progressing real time.

Trip sharing is a must-have for every train traveler, especially women, youngsters and elderly. The app also calculates the expected arrival time, delay (if any) and distance left to destination. It also shows the coach / seat position of the traveler, along with the expected platform number. The app also advises the users which side to approach the station in case you are travelling to the station.
