Help us improve train travel for people with hearing loss

We’ve been working with GoMedia, a company that is developing a new app in conjunction with the Department for Transport. The app will aim to deliver real-time announcements direct to passengers’ smartphones in SMS format during journeys.

The app is in the advanced stages of development and tests will take place in early 2022 on selected Transport for Wales Routes (which, despite the name, also cover England as far as Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Cheltenham).

We are looking for volunteers who can travel on specific dates, to test the app in live situations. If you’d like to be involved, please email
