Motor around without the car

September 09, 2007

Lose the car next time you fly into some cities, and cut down on your carbon footprint -- at least while on the ground. HopStop.com will show you how to get around using public transit.

What's hot: Directions are easy to follow, and you get choices: Do you want to travel by subway and rail only? Bus only? On foot only? You can choose "less street walking/more transfers" or "more street walking/fewer transfers" if you want to rack up steps on the pedometer. It even has a choice of directions in nine languages, including Swahili.

What's not: It could use bus and rail schedules, to make it easier to plan a trip. So far it's limited to eight U.S. cities, and none is Los Angeles.
