You can now buy train tickets on your smartphone anytime, anywhere with the free Northern mobile app.

Northern is the largest rail operator in the UK, with more than 2,500 trains every day. We are proud to provide local and regional services across the North of England.

Our mobile app helps you to travel in the North of England and even elsewhere in Great Britain if you want. You can:

  • Plan and buy tickets for any train journey
  • View information for any train service
  • Let us know about any faults on a Northern station or service

When you buy tickets with our app there are no booking fees, no credit card fees and no delivery fees. You can buy all the tickets that are available on our website and all at the same great prices, knowing that our app automatically finds the best fares for your journey. You can reserve seats on longer journeys and can now have most tickets delivered straight to your phone, or collect them from over 1,000 stations. It’s easy and they’re ready to collect within 15 minutes. We’ll even remember what you looked at to make it easy next time.

Our real time information comes fresh from National Rail Enquiries and lets you check any train service in Great Britain, including ours. You can see the departure times, platforms (for most places), and check how trains are running at any National Rail station; and our “at a glance” colour indicators give you an instant overview to aid with your journey planning.
