TRIP: THE TRANSPORTATION ROUTING AND INTERMODAL PLANNING SYSTEM: AN AID FOR TODAY'S TRAVELER

The Transportation Routing and Intermodal Planning (TRIP) System was conceived as an aid to today's traveler. It assumes a traveler wishes to choose from all available modes of transportation generally air, automobile, rail, and bus. It is based on the utilization of current computer display technology. The TRIP System accepts information from the traveler in real time while the traveler sits at an input terminal. The information describes the individual travel needs and desires. The computer produces actual travel plans with comparative cost and time data for each mode. (Author)
