6.1 - Provide Trip Planning Services

This page shows the collection of processes that make up the Provide Trip Planning Services facility within the Provide Driver and Traveler Services function. These processes enable travelers to plan, reserve, and pay for multimodal trips.

The key points about the facility are as follows:
- Multimodal trip planning available to include private car, transit, demand responsive transit, ridesharing and other modes, e.g., walking and cycling, plus services from Multimodal Transportation Service Providers;
- Trip planning available for routes using all modes of transportation, and based on incidents, evacuation plans, and other factors;
- Traveler provided with details of the best possible route including its cost;
- Trip confirmation reserves any included services e.g., demand responsive transit and ridesharing;
- Trip confirmation may also involve payment for services it includes;
- Operator controls parameters used in selecting the best modes for trips;
- Data about the types of services and trips requested is stored for later archival.

There are three processes defined as Process Specifications (PSpecs) in this collection:

1) Provide Trip Planning Information to Traveler (6.1.1)
2) Confirm Traveler's Trip Plan (6.1.2)
3) Provide Operator Interface for Trip Planning Parameters (6.1.3)
