India's leading travel search marketplace ixigo has become country's second most downloaded train information app after IRCTC by exceeding nine million downloads with two million monthly active users and four lakh daily users across 200+ towns in India.
Available on the Google Play Store, the ixigo app is rated 4.3, with over one lakh users rating it with four to five stars.
The app has one million train PNRs added to it every month, over two lakh ratings and reviews of trains and stations, and records over 35 million user sessions and 225
million screen-views per month.
It covers all major trains in India, including superfast trains such as Shatabdi and Rajdhani as well as suburban and inter-city trains.
Recently, it also added information on local trains and metro rail networks across the country. Apart from unique crowd-sourced features such as live running status, coach position and platform numbers, ixigo trains also offers smart technology and data driven features such as a highly-accurate PNR prediction, station alarms, auto-magical PNR updates and much more.
"Train travelers have been an ignored market segment by the travel industry for long. At ixigo we spotted the opportunity to serve train travelers back in 2013 and with ixigo's deep understanding of train users developed over the last three years and our use of technology and data to make their lives simpler, we have been able to establish ourselves as a clear market leader in this segment," said CEO and Co-Founder ixigo, Aloke Bajpai.
"Our rail app had also been recommended by Google's CEO Sundar Pichai at the AndroidOne launch for its relevance for Indian travelers. With seamless integration of value-add services such as rail news, budget hotels, packages and cabs, we are committed to making train travel in India an enjoyable and hassle-free experience," added Aloke Bajpai.
Ixigo will soon add regional language support to make it more convenient for users to explore the best travel options to suit their requirements.
