So far in 2017, digital transport app developer Glow has been also been announced finalist in UK Rail Industry Awards London, SmartRail Europe Awards Amsterdam and the National Technology Awards London.

The mobile app developer and web design agency which has offices in London and Liverpool has been shortlisted for its Rail Commander application and also for its My Train Journey application.

Rail Commander is a Mobile App designed for Train Operating Companies.

Phil Blything, Managing Director of Glow New Media said:

“To be a finalist in one National Award for Transport Innovation was fantastic, but four in six months is next level. I’m so proud of the team – this underscores their capability and demonstrates the innovation they deliver every day.”

Supported by the Department for Transport, Transport Focus, and the Association for Consultancy & Engineering, the 2017 National Transport Awards will take place at the Westminster Park Plaza, London on 12th  October 2017.
