As someone who lives in a Beta – City , my city’s public transit is only so-so and most people rely on driving. That being said, there are certain areas that are particularly easy to get to via public transit compared to driving. These are areas that have limited/expensive parking, and/or a lot of traffic.
In these instances, I would love to have an app that planned my route so I could drive to where parking was cheaper/more available, and then take public transit the rest of the way. Basically “park and ride” but instead of parking dedicated lots, parking on side streets, etc.
I would love the app to tell me the following:
- How to get to your destination using only driving
- How to get to your destination using only public transit
- How to get to your destination maximizing time on public transit and minimizing travel time
I feel this would allow me to make an informed decision on what I should take, as well as give me an opportunity to use public transit.
Let me know if this already exists, or if you’re a programmer and want to make this happen too!
