A simple workflow which returns the next connections by typing the start station and the destination for the public transport in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Netherlands and Belgium.

Home Station

When you set a start station by typing the following command ...

fahrplan start Basel SBB

... you can only type the destination into Alfred and get your connections ...

nach Biel jetzt

... or you if you want to go back home, you can do one of the following query types:

von Aarau nach Hause jetzt
zurück Aarau jetzt

Departure Times

You can add on every query a departure time. The following patterns works currently:

  • jetzt
  • um hh:mm
  • morgen hh:mm
  • übermorgen hh:mm
  • Montag-Sonntag hh:mm
  • dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm

Delays and Track Changes

If your connection is late or your train leaves from a different track, the Workflow will show you the changes.

Capacity

The workflow will show you how heavily loaded your connection is. This requires that the transport provider provides this data. You can change the train classes (first and second) by typing into Alfred.

fahrplan klasse

Planned Features

  • queries with relative departure times
  • queries with arrival time
