Timetable information is the process of determining a suitable travel route for a passenger. Due to delays in the original timetable, in practice it often happens that the travel route cannot be used as originally planned. For a passenger being already en route, it would hence be useful to know about alternatives that ensure that his/her destination can be reached. In this work we propose a recoverable robust approach to timetable information; i.e., we aim at finding travel routes that can easily be updated when delays occur during the journey. We present polynomial-time algorithms for this problem and evaluate the performance of the routes obtained this way on schedule data of the German train network of 2013 and simulated delay scenarios.
