The impact of bicycles on journey planning
Using a bicycle as pre-transport for public transport significantly changes travel patterns. Still journey planners are not able to cope with this combination of modalities. Moreover, one of the Netherlands largest journey planning apps “9292” stated that customers are not interested in journey plans with the option to use bicycle in their journey.
The Urban-Engine was used to draw insights on this matter and it was found that for the traveller it is impossible to take an informed decision on the way to travel as it is nearly impossible to evaluate all the different alternatives.
