iOS 6 Maps Directions

Miss having public transport directions in iOS 6? Trip Buddy will hook right in to the built-in Maps app, and provide transport directions using the Quick Plan engine.


Fast routing engine

Trip Buddy is loaded with an optimised routing engine that can tell you the best changeover station for train journeys for each possible time, not just once-off when you create the trip. Train changeovers are calculated right on your device.

Trip overviews

The trip times screen shows the different routes with coloured bubbles so you can tell all lines and bus routes a trip takes, not just the first. Knowing the journey overview and the travel time, picking the right trip has never been easier.

Want more control?

If you prefer to specify your trip changeovers yourself, you can! Trip Buddy has a trip editor that lets you manually create trips over all available transport modes, and automatically calculates approximate walking distances between stops.
