Bienvenue, SNCF in the mobile world! This December, SNCF has launched their .mobi mobile portal for travelers to look up train times and to order tickets. I’ve been used to this service from other train companies for years and I am glad to finally see a similar service in France now as well. Even though there seems to be an advertisement cooperation in place with Bouygues Telecom the service is based on HTML and usable on all wap 2.0 capable mobiles. Well done, SNCF, thank you!
Next task: Please upgrade your vending machines to accept international credit cards so I don’t have to queue up every time I have bought a ticket online (and please tell RATP, too…). A sorrow I share with many foreign travelers in France!
