von Zürich HB nach Bern jetzt
When you set a start station by typing the following command ...

... 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
You can add on every query a departure time. The following patterns works currently:
- 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.
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.
- queries with relative departure times
- queries with arrival time
