Goroo’s Multi-Modal Trip Planner System now includes bicycle trip planner
The Regional Transportation Authority’s (RTA) online Transportation decision support tool, www.Goroo.com, has been updated to include a bicycle trip planner. The bike trip planner is part of Goroo’s Multi-Modal Trip Planner System (MMTPS). The traveler can now choose to plan their trips by biking the entire trip, taking their bikes on CTA, Metra, and/or Pace (buses and trains), or leaving their bicycles at CTA and Metra train stations. The bike planner option is in addition to the site’s driving, drive to transit, transit, and walking trip planning options.
The bike planner was developed in cooperation with the Active Transportation Alliance and accounts for the current bike-on-train limitations for CTA and Metra trains.
