From today you’ll notice that we’re now providing more options by default in Journey Planner.
In addition to the fastest public transport journey, we now also calculate bus only, Santander cycles, cycling and walking journeys. Through other buttons on the journey results you can access routes for full step-free access, least walking and fewest changes.
We’ve also fixed some problems people were having with planning from certain stations like Watford Junction, which stemmed from a data issue.
This adds to the work we’ve done recently on improving places of interest, now achieved through the Google Places API and on printing, where whatever you’ve selected on screen will now be reflected in the print – so if you want the maps you just need to expand them and they will print. If it’s not printing as you expect you may have to select the options to print backgrounds and headers/footers.
We’re now moving on to improvements in planning beyond London boundaries, looking at putting fares into the planner, making further improvements for cycling and much more.
As always we’d love to know what you think and if you have any problems with the Journey Planner or other aspects of the website.
You can let us know what you think by commenting on this blog or contacting our customer services team.
