Planning a Journey
To plan a journey you will need to enter a starting location (if it differs from your current location) and a destination, once you have selected your destination the app will give you different journey options. These are broken down by “Suggested” which will show you the fastest routes and “Bus Only” which will give you a route only using buses. Any filters you have changed in the settings will also effect the routes suggested e.g add accessibility issues, routes with the fewest changes and even edit how much walking you prefer to do.
Once you have chosen your preferred route the app will take you to the journey breakdown screen where you can see every part of your journey with the time and cost breakdown. Clicking on any part of the breakdown will show you that part of the journey on the map above. Pressing the red circle with the white arrow will bring up a more detailed map breakdown, here you can swipe left and right to move back and forth to each part of the journey.
