Listening to music is a common activity when riding the bus, subway or train, and now the Gatwick Express train service in the UK is enhancing the activity for passengers by providing an accompanying music playlist for passengers. Essentially, each rider will get a "musical description," called the Gatwick Express Track, of his or her train ride. The track features three songs from recording artists The Milk, Philip Sheppard and Benga.
The accompanying music acts like a melodic interpretation -- a "soundtrack of your journey," as the website says -- of a 30-minute ride on the Gatwick Express, which goes from Victoria Station in London to the Gatwick Airport. Riders can download the musical tracks for free when they purchase their tickets online.
