There is now a new way to beat the rush and pay for your train ticket from local stations.

Mobile ticketing has been launched for trains travelling from Aylsebury Vale Parkway, Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville, Wendover, Great Missenden, Amersham and Chalfont and Latimer.

The tickets can be purcahsed at www.trainline.com and are automatically validated for travel.

Inventors say the new way of payingwill eliminate queuing at railway stations.

Dave Slocombe, product owner of Mobile Apps at Trainline says: “We’ve been working closely with train operators nationally to make mobile tickets a reality for customers and it’s fantastic to see roll-out across the full Chiltern Railways network.

“The live nature of a mobile ticket in our App means that you can time your trip to the station to perfection, or relax in the coffee shop, safe in the knowledge of knowing exactly where your train is and exactly what platform you need to get to. In addition, buying in advance can save an average of 43% compared to booking on the day.”
