Bike, Bus, and Beyond: Extending Cyclopath to Enable Multi-Modal Routing

This project addressed several Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) critical issues and strategic directions: easing congestion and improving mobility by making multi-modal transit options more easily accessible. It did so by extending the Cyclopath bicycle route-finding system to support multi-modal routes that combine cycling and transit. This required extensions to the route-finding algorithm – to combine biking and transit appropriately – and user interface – to let users express modal preferences and enhance the visual presentation of routes, e.g., to mark mode shifts. The authors used the Graphserver open-source software to as the routing engine; by building on existing software, they reduced development effort. They conducted interviews with a number of multimodal transit users to guide the design of the user interface.
