You can plan a journey in a number of different ways to suit
Plan me a journey door to door...
The simplest way to plan your journey is to use the door-to-door journey planner above. This searches for up to five journey options - by joined-up public transport or by car.
Just enter your origin and destination and the results will show step-by-step directions,
including any connections you need to make, station details,
interchange times or driving instructions if you have selected the car journey.
By clicking the 'Maps' or 'show map' button you can see a map of your entire journey, or you can look at the individual sections by clicking the map button next to that leg.
By clicking "Tickets/Costs", you can check the prices and
availability of rail and coach tickets and buy your tickets from partner retailer sites.
I know how I want to travel...
Perhaps you have already decided what form of transport to
use for the main part of your journey.
In that case use our single mode planners to
Find a car
bus. These will list journeys for just that
type of transport.
By using the 'Find cheaper rail fares' or 'Find a train' planner you can search by price for a rail ticket.
A search by price allows you to choose from a range of fares before you see the journey details relevant to that ticket price.
You can also use the city to city journey planner to quickly
compare train, plane, coach and car journeys between two cities or towns in Britain.
If you chose to complete your journey by car, you can find the nearest car park to your origin or destination
by clicking 'Drive to a car park' and following the instructions on the screen.
Plan me a cycle route…
Transport Direct's 'Find a cycle route' planner is designed to plan local cycle journeys within
urban areas. You can choose from the quickest journey, one that takes the quietest route, or a
recreational journey which will take as many green places as possible. Details of the journey will be displayed along with the graph showing the gradient of the journey.
The cycle planner covers many areas of Great Britain and we are regularly adding more areas.
Please visit our FAQs to see if the cycle planner covers your area.
Amending my chosen journey
Once you have found a journey you want, you can modify your journey:.
||Add a connecting journey - find the main part of your journey and then
extend the plan to show how to get from the station to your door by car or public transport.
||Combine public transport and car - replace a section of your journey
that uses public transport with a car journey.
||Adjust the timings within your journey - allow more time at the places
where you have to change transport and re-plan your journey accordingly.
||Change your origin and/or destination and/or your travel date and time by
clicking this icon or the "Amend" button at the top of the page. You could
also use the "Amend date and time" feature, at the bottom of the page.
