VRS Info


You can access the timetable information system of the VRS transportation companies using this app, including current data (on time, delayed) - if available (Deutsche Bahn, RVK, REVG). We set a high value on an user interface that is easy to use in order to provide a companion for everyday life.

Some highlights of this app:
• Uses your current location
• Routing from address to address
• Show way on foot using Google Maps
• Interactive linemap
• Favorite connections, addresses and stops
• News for current timetable changes in the VRS network area

SEARCH:
Display your route - whereever you are - without knowing which is the next stop. The app shows you the correct destination stop and also provides the way on foot using Google Maps.

NOW AND HERE:
If you need a overview of stops around you, "Now and here" is the right choice. You can see the stops around you and the next departures from there. Once again on a map.

INTERACTIVE LINEMAP:
This is a real highlight. It shows the complete line network of the region clearly arranged and can be operated interactively. You can choose a stop and display its stop timetable, show it on a map, add it to your favorites or define it as origin or destination of a search.

FAVORITES:
Besides your own "Take me home" connection you can store other connections on your mobile. The App allows you to store connection favorites, addresses and stops using personalized names.

Designrichtlinien Davon und von einer neuen Android-Version hat der Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Sieg wohl noch nie etwas gehört. Die App sieht dermaßen 2010 aus, das ist peinlich.
