What makes a truly great website? Usability and intuitive user experience, matched with great, yet simple design and carefully planned functionalities.
Regio Calatori is one of Romania’s privately owned railways company. It operates trains on important routes across the country and is used by tens of thousands for their daily commute.
Regio Calatori had an outdated web platform, so our task was to create a new website with a clean design and integrate several functionalities, connecting their ticketing platform with the revamped website. The main focus was to provide useful information for customers, such as information about trains, stations, routes, delays and to give a possibility for users to buy train tickets directly from the website. Display optimization and mobile optimization was also very important – this was not done on their old webpage.
The biggest challenge was to provide lots and lots of useful information for the user and still keep it simple. Projects like this are time-consuming and require careful planning and hours of brainstorming. Another challenge was to take the feed and all the information from Regio Calatori’s ticketing system, allowing users to buy train tickets online.
The homepage has a very intuitive search form, you can find all the stations and routes either by searching for them or by accessing the available routes for the current year. Also, employees of Regio Calatori can update their customers about canceled trains, delays or other information regarding transportation in real-time. Another important feature is the possibility of buying tickets via the website, fast & easy.
A fresh new look with real time information and online payments just a few clicks away. An online ticketing system, an important feature for any railway company keeping up with the 21st century. We kindly invite you to go and see it for yourself:
