Trainman’s core strength lies in its waiting ticket prediction functionality with over 90% accuracy. Apart from PNR status prediction, the constantly evolving platform also provides features like Automatic Trip Detection from IRCTC SMS, Automatic Notification on Change in PNR Status, Four months Seat Availability Calendar, Train Schedule and Running Status, Live Station Status and Platform Number and Coach Position among others.
