TripGo the award-winning Transit Planner adds 3 word addresses
TripGo is the only true multi-modal transit app that combines both any public and any private transport mode into one trip. Whether you’re cycling, walking, taking the bus or the underground, or all of them, you can get from A to Z, and everywhere in between, simply and easily.
However, as street addressing doesn’t cover everywhere and is often inaccurate, A and Z aren’t necessarily where you think they are. When people attempt to navigate there, they often find they get close but have to phone, text, or walk up and down the street to find the right spot. This causes delays and frustration. To solve this, TripGo has integrated what3words to help people travel smarter.
what3words is the simplest way to talk about location. It has divided the world into 3m x 3m squares, each with a unique 3 word address. It means when in London you can meet friends for a picnic at ///hurt.sock.piano in Hyde Park – and TripGo can plan the fastest route there. No more phoning friends because you can’t quite find their house, the entrance to the bar or that spot on the beach.
TripGo works in hundreds of cities worldwide and more cities are added all the time. Users don’t have to download a new app when they go overseas.
TripGo also offers a white label for businesses and governments who want to use live public transit information. Now with what3words integrated, everyone can act on real-time public transit information and know their clients will be in exactly the right place.
