Examples of existing national journey planners

The challenges of climate change, increasing congestion and fuel costs mean we need to find smarter ways to travel. Multimodal travel – using different types of transport for one journey – is part of the answer. It may not only be better for the environment, it may also be easier on our wallets.

Multimodal travel is by its very nature more complex. That is where multimodal journey planners come in. These online tools can help travellers plan a journey from A to B detailing the different types of transport to take, times and even fares.

Planners by country

The map is not exhaustive, but simply represents some examples of existing national journey planners.

Enlarge the map

National planners already exist in many European countries (see map above), but pan-European coverage is limited. We need to go much further and faster to develop real European planners that help travellers plan journeys that criss-cross the EU from a single website. This is why we launched the First Smart Mobility Challenge.
