To coincide with the start of Mix Your Mode week, on Monday 23rd March 2015, Cork County Council launched their new website based Journey Planner. Developed through the EU Atlantic Area funded BATTERIE project, the Mix Your Mode Journey Planner located at www.mixyourmode.ie is optimised for use on mobile devices such as smartphones. It allows for the planning of a trip by public transport, cycling or with the use of an electric vehicle either in real-time or at a defined departure time. The Journey Planner embodies the message of Cork’s Transport and Mobility Forum’s Mix Your Mode campaign which encourages people to try a more sustainable mode of travel.
This is the first Journey Planner specific to Cork that allows you to choose between the modes of transport you want to use, informing that decision with a carbon emissions calculator.
The software behind the journey planner allows for the regular updating of mapping and other data as more and more infrastructure and services become available, ensuring the planner gives the most accurate options available.
