LNER launches Seat Sensor

News Front

LNER HAS launched Seat Sensor on its trains, which records the current and future status of a seat’s availability.

The system, which has gone live across its leet of Mk 3 and Mk 4 coaches, uses a traic light system to display reservations above seats: green for available, amber for seats reserved later in the journey and red for a seat reserved for the whole journey. The seat sensor technology detects whether seats are occupied, and passengers can use the seat inder tool from the on-board Wi-Fi pages to view a map of each coach and the seat status.
