Re: [carfree_cities] Online travel planner for NYC
- Los Angeles, of all places, has an excellent online route planner on the http://www.mta.net site, and the city (MTA is county) puts out an excellent bicycle route map oriented to commuters...I found one at my local bike shop, and I am sure it is online, though having lived and ridden here for over forty years I generally know the routes so I haven't looked for it.
Now, if only more people would use it....

public transit, the instructions are as often as not useless.
