A new app that allows train operators to request train paths online has been certified as compliant by the European Railways Association (ERA).
Developed by Hit Rail, the H20 Path Request app allows operators to request and book train paths with infrastructure managers through a web browser rather than over the phone or by fax.
ERA has now confirmed that the app meets European Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI).
Hit Rail has said the app, which is available in English, French, German and Czech, will simplify the process for railway undertakings (RUs), particularly smaller operators.
Antonio Lopez, general manager of Hit Rail, said: “We are delighted that our H20 Path Request App has now achieved this important endorsement of compliance from the ERA.
“RUs can now begin to use this tool to significantly ease the burden of managing complex interoperability issues, especially where trains are crossing borders.
“The ERA Compliance Report means that rail organisations can have full confidence that this easy-to-use application fully complies with the TSI standards.”
