What information is included in the JourneyCheck alerts messages?
Alerts for specific services will advise you:

I’m having problems logging into my JourneyCheck alerts account, what could be wrong?
You should log in using the e-mail address and password you specified during registration. Check you have not mistyped these and click on the forgotten password button, which will e-mail you a reminder of it. If the system does not recognise your e-mail address, it is possible you may have mistyped your e-mail address during the registration process.
Please contact our customer relations team if you continue to experience problems.
My train was cancelled or delayed but I didn’t receive a JourneyCheck text alert, why?
This could be down to a number of things.
Firstly we suggest checking the days and train times you selected when registering for the JourneyCheck alerts service.
- Log in to your JourneyCheck account using your e-mail address and password you originally registered with.
- In the "My Alerts" section, check the "Alert me at" time, the selected days of the week and the times in "For trains between", in both directions. If these are correct, then:
- In the "My Details" section, check we hold the correct mobile telephone number. If all the above is as you expected
- Please contact our Customer Relations team. We will check whether there is a problem sending alerts with our Control Centre, or if there is a system error with our supplier Nexus Alpha.
