Three easy-to-use transit trip planners

Personal preferences take precedence over which apps people choose to use and love. Likewise with transit trip planners; some are extremely detailed, others are simple, some are very easy and others are more complicated. The more you use an app, the more familiar it becomes, and the easier you will find it to use.

There are many transit trip planners, but here are 3 of the most easy-to-use apps:

  1. Google Map

This transit trip planner is one of the most popular ones and used by many on a daily basis.

You can choose your mode of travel – whether it be walking, biking, in the car, bus, train, or airplane. The time and distance options vary according to the travel mode. Google Map is accessible in many countries. You can even share your location with a contact.

  1. MapQuest

Just like all other planners, MapQuest begins with a starting point and a destination. There are many options too. You can also add notes. You even have the ability to enter the trip as a round-trip and even add other stops along the way. MapQuest gives you a variety of routes based on the time and distance choices. They are not limited to road travel alone, you can also have the access to ferries, highways, roads with tolls, and county borders.
