Create Your Trip
Name your trip.

Click or tap on “Add a Trip”
Select the time it takes for you to get to the station if you want the transit times based on when you get to the station.
For the first segment, you can also select “Use Traffic” to let us predict how long it will take you to get to the station based on traffic data.
You can also select if you want your voice assistant to respond to you in Time (e.g. 10:31am) or Minutes (e.g. 5mins) by selecting an option for Response Type.
Add Segments for each part of your trip by selecting the transit agency and then searching for your start and end stop.
You will need to add a segment for each train and/or bus you take to get to your destination. This is where you customize you commute to take you on your preferred route.
