On-line journey planners encourage the use of public transport systems by easing the task of finding “optimal” routes between start and destination locations. Most of the tools lack the flexibility of comparing journeys that end at different (but maybe nearby) destinations. In this paper; we propose a novel visualization tool for public transport journey planning that integrates graph layout techniques to allow visual comparison of travel time and journey directions. Our tool uses data from the bus system of Konstanz. Taking this data as example; use cases describe the tool’s applicability to trip planning with route alternatives.
