What is Briteway and how does it work?

Briteway is an innovative travel app designed to assist train travellers, currently in Wales and soon around the rest of the UK. It works by using Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) to show you inside train stations in real time and help you navigate them. The app helps you in two ways. The first is planning your rail journeys, so that you can view in advance the layout, access and amenities in stations, see how you can navigate them or swap to a more accessible route. The other is real-time navigation and information during your journey. This includes a live chat function to speak to station staff. 

How do I get started and set up my account?

First, download the app to your phone using the Download button on the top right of any page of this website. Then follow the on screen options to create your account using your name and email account. You can also enter a phone number for an Emergency Contact (any friend or helper who you want to help you in an emergency). Once you complete the registration, you will be ready to start using the app.  

Where are the instructions on how to use the app?

There is a user guide in the app. You will see it after you have registered or you can select it from the Menu. Download a pdf of the user guide here: Download user guide
