I am looking for an app that allows you to construct multiple-stop itinerary on + in one query :

A -- B # What is possible
A -- C -- B # What I am looking for

Google Maps only allow those by car, foot and bike.
Both Citymapper and Transit don't support it.

And neither of the local networks' app that I use have that possibility.

Is there an app/website, preferably widespread (local answers are welcome nevertheless), that allow for such itinerary on public transport?

As an aside, I was wondering if there is a technical barrier to implementing such solution?

  • Citymapper does do this. I use it for this exact purpose in London - now it isn't entirely flexible, and only offers stops and routes that "make sense" but it is pretty effective.

  • @RoryAlsop I'm pretty sure this is London-exclusive, as their birthplace, but every network in the EU I have tried doesn't support it, might be a good sign for a widening deployment though Oct 1, 2022 at 9:29
  • That is why I only offered it as a comment, not an answer - sorry I can't be more helpful. I haven't seen any other app in this space.

    You need to say where you need this? Like Citymapper apparently does for London, Rejseplanen does do this for travel internally in Denmark (it's very internal, last week I had a suggested journey where the last part was on a train that crossed the border into Germany, they listed the last stop in Denmark as the destination - I wasn't going that far, so it just caused a bit of confusion on whether I had found the correct train) Oct 1, 2022 at 10:17
  • What exactly would you expect to get from such a feature that you cannot find out by looking up both segments separately? A -- C -- B is very different from A -- C + C -- B in international air transport because the fares can be very different and there are important consequences of booking the whole itinerary as one ticket but none of these apply to local public transit.

I think Rome2rio offers what you are looking for, although I have no idea how optimal the choices are. For instance I tried a slightly random journey within Italy and Switzerland and the result sounded plausible enough (it involved trains, buses and ferries).

You add each leg separately, rather than say you wish to travel from A to B via C.

enter image description here


In The Netherlands both the 9292 planner and the planner of NS (the main train company) allow for 1 extra stop:

For rail travel in Europe the Deutsche Bahn planner allows to choose 1 or 2 stopovers.

    I think most national rail and/or bus planners allow something like this but most of them only do the combination within their country or at most just over de borders, some do only do them for buses or trains and not for both. The German planner does it very well for the combination within Germany but does not know the buses over the borders.
