Straeto's Journey Planner, by Trapeze Group
The Journey Planner provides passengers with full access to up-to-date travel information:
Journey Planner information is available via a website, or one of the company’s branded mobile Apps, which are available on iPhone, Android and Windows Smartphones. The web version can be viewed at http://s.is/
Strætó Head of Planning and Service, Einar Kristjánsson, is very happy to be able to offer passengers this improved service: “In November Strætó began using Smartphone Apps to enable passengers to search journeys, and see buses and individual stops in real time. These Apps have changed passengers' travel experiences, making them better informed regarding delays etc. In December we followed this launch with the release of a new Journey Planner on our website. This ensures passengers receive the same information, whether they use an App or the website. The Journey Planner gives passengers new opportunities to find journeys, and the searches can be adjusted to each passenger with individual choices such as how fast they walk, and bus changes etc.”
Peter Bell, Managing Director of Trapeze Group in the UK, commented: "Strætó currently utilises Trapeze software to assist with planning, operational and administration processes, so we are extremely happy to expand their portfolio with our latest Journey Planning technology."
