Did you know there’s a mobile version of our transit trip planner?

If you visit tripplanning.translink.ca on your smartphone’s web browser, you can access our transit trip planner while on the go.

It can be really handy if you’re out and about, and you don’t know the system well. We added this feature back in December, but I’m not sure that many people know about it!

Just put in the start and end points of your journey, plus the time you want to travel, and it will tell you what buses and trains to take. You can also customize your search, like asking only for wheelchair accessible routes, or no SkyTrain, or others.

Anyway, that’s just one more tool you can use to navigate our transit system. Google Maps for mobile is another transit trip planner you can try—it has fewer options than our trip planner, but is still really good!
