Get live train timings in just one tap. The app detects your closest station or select your boarding station and see the information of upcoming trains.

Rootin is powered by Mumbaikars! The awesomeness of Rootin stems in our cooperation with you, our amazing users who are always happy to help. This concept is known as crowdsourcing. So it is the commuters of local who are generating live information of all the Mumbai locals. Rootin serves as their technology partner.
At Rootin, we claim that the simplest ever way to help thousands of people is by pressing the 'Check in' button. When a commuter boards a train, he checks in that train on the app. By checking in, he or she shares the location of the train. Based on this location and time data, we predict the train running status and update this information on the app to help people waiting on the subsequent stations know the expected arrival time. More check ins = Better accuracy
We are currently serving the commuters of Mumbai local and will soon be available for Buses!

Simple to use, does what it says, does it well.
Awsum app help all d mumbaikar's to travel safely...... “A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.”
Make the App... Move To SD Card!! Installed recently.... More Users Check - In... More Info!! Else, limited usability'
I must say that this app is going to be very useful for people like me who use local everyday. I can check my train status just by a click from anywhere and don' t need to hurry unnecessarily if train is running late which is true most of the times, especially in monsoons. Now I can plan accordingly. Great work rootin guys/gals for this awesome app.Mumbaikars - lets make the trains live.
This is great !! Do focus on advertising.. Because its accuracy and usefulness totally depends on the number of users who actually use it..focus on CST/Dadar/Ghatkopar/Thane/Dombivli/Kalyan stations from advertising point of view on central line..these are the stations with max young and educated crowd having smartphones and active internet connection. Keep up the good work !!
Have started using this app & I'm really happy as I was looking for similar app, which would show the current status of the train. This app rely on commuters who will have to check in once they broad the train, so that other users could get the exact status of the train. I guess it uses GPS to trace the train. However, it would be difficult for every commuter to check in always as travelling in mumbai locals is not easy. App would be more effective if motor-man himself checks in at the start of the journey.
Loved the unique concept of mumbaikars helping mumbaikars. I understand that the live info will keep getting better and accurate with more check-ins as the app becomes popular. Keep up the good work.
I try so many times but i cant find any live status only showing you are awesome nothing else. I am trying to findout malad to virar train timing but only showing you r awesome. Nothing else.
Thanks developing an app like this, m sure it will soon reach thousands and lakhs of download very soon, mumbaikars will surely profit from this. cheers!
Loved the simplicity of the app. Gives straight what is needed. The people of mumbai can make trains live with this app. We always say the 'spirit of mumbaikar' and now it can translate to something really great. Keep it up boys. All the very best.
Local train Live timing with many other useful information.... what else Mumbaikar wants..? Thanks Team Rootin for such a useful app.
first of all it gives network error when I enter the boarding station....also the UI is not that great!
App detects my position, and then when I select the station, there is a network error. And no, there is no actual network issue.
Can't find any live info of running locals. always saying "no live update available" for the trains. Only use is to help with local time and arriving platform.
This is a great app but for live train timings only.... Zophop has been helping me with the same live timing/check in feature for trains, buses, metro, monorail and it also gives the different ways I can travel if I go anywhere with the city.... For daily commuters I would recommend zophop over this
Its very good app for daily commutation through city's life line (local) with more dynamic information which facilitates convenient travelling. Its a tool for smart travelling in smart city. Very nice GUI
This app is a shit app...big time chutypaaa...every time while selecting the station to board it shows the messe network error...plz don't download this app....I don't want to rate it but it's a kind of hopeless suitation....they should provide minus rating also so that we can choose from that also
It is very good app for those using mumbai locals daily. It is so accurate and precisely designed. I have no hesitation to rate it 5. Only drawback that you need net to use it.
3 stars for thought but on publics download finding train results is crap fit something in trains to track it i used it a number of time and not even once i got my train tracked where it is.... Plus showing train for 1 hour only give me whole day timetable atleast like ridlr and all
No body has so much time to check in and checkout . U know mumbai local crowd inside the compartment.. We checked our mobile when we leave from home or office. or we check the timing of trains when we reach platforms. . Ur efforts are good. But u can make it better. Thanks.
Tried checking CST and churchgate at 8 PM, no live info available
Instead of asking more and more passengers to checkin why not ask the guard of the train to update train info as it reaches any station
No one has time to check in. In this rush and crowd people will be worried about get in and not check in
Very nice app. Live train status is very helpful. Very user friendly.
I didnt get how to use it..n is it useful for streets also ?
One of the best app I have over seen for Mumbai local traveler.
Simple to use. No hassles. Convenience for daily commuters like me. The concept is promising, looking forward for more features to come soon.
Guys this works on concept somewhat similar to torrent. Must have.
For 2 Mbps bandwidth, it shows network error
Must have app for people dependent on public transport.. Keep up the good work!!
The layout of stations looks great and are thoughtfully designed. The UI is easy to use in getting across the real time info to the user. I would like to have my daily commute route saved as a shortcut to go do my check-ins more swiftly.
Some room for improvement
Just for showing time table with map ( not for live status) I would like m-indicator better than rootin. because m-indicator has more features .... than rootin.
Very useful app. Loved the GUI.
Today time is money.this app saved my time to reach off on time.Best app ever.thanks to the Rootin team.
App crashes when I select boarding station
Very useful application for all the Mumbaikars and specially for those who are new in the city and finds it difficult. Hard work done by the team is really appreciable :-)
Check in option is good initiative. Station description is accurate
Beautifully designed app
