NL Train Navigator is the best travel companion when you travel by train in the Netherlands! You are immediately notified about service disruptions. Live departure times are available for all railway stations, including information about train length. Finally, the journey planner allows you to plan trips throughout the Netherlands.
NL Train Navigator provides information about all Dutch railway companies: the Dutch national railways (Nederlandse Spoorwegen), Arriva, Breng, Connexxion, Syntus and Veolia. There is also information available about international trains that run through the Netherlands, including Thalys, ICE International and all trains that cross the border with Belgium or Germany.
Do you often depart from the same stations? It's easy to mark a station as favorite, just check the app settings. You can look up stations quickly by entering a part of the name or its abbreviation. The journey planner is also optimized for speed; you can search for the next departing train or find the last train of the day.
By default, the app sends notifications for service disruptions. You can disable these notifications in the app settings. In the future we will add a feature to see personalized notifications about service disruptions for your favorite railway lines. Stay tuned for this feature!
For Dashclock users: a Dashclock extension is included in the app, so you can see the number of service disruptions in your Dashclock widget. You don't need to install a separate Dashclock extension to use this feature.
The app has a user-friendly and modern Android design, and is also fully compatible with tablets.

NL Train Navigator uses data provided by the Dutch Railways (NS), but this app is not affiliated with NS or any other transport company. This app is called Rijden de Treinen in Dutch.
