The Bellingham Herald reports that the Whatcom Transportation Authority recently announced that they are in the final stages of designing an online trip-planner that is expected to be ready for use this November! The trip-planner will allow riders to find routes by entering the starting point and destination. Developing an online trip-planner has been one of the WTA’s goals since 2005 so this is very exciting. Hopefully, the online trip-planner will help increase ridership by making route information more accessible to riders.
The WTA also plans to collaborate with Google Transit to add WTA information to the Google Transit database. Google Transit is a free online service that uses route information from transit agencies across the country to allow users to plan trips between different regions.
