A trip planner with a difference
“A trip planner helps you figure out how best to get where you want to go. A multi-modal trip planner lets you plan routes using multiple “modes,” for example, on foot, bike, train, bus, or some combination thereof. A good multi-modal trip planner allows you to easily tailor your trip to your preferences, for example by eliminating transfers, walking a more scenic path, or only riding buses with bike storage.”
