Tellmyroute.com was designed as an initiative to promote public transport and encourage the general public to use it. The site is a one-stop solution for all local travel needs such as finding the correct bus number, checking a specific bus route, figuring out what buses cover which bus stops, trying out all the possible combinations for a one hop travel to the destination and the stop closest to home.
This apart, this website also offers driving directions for personal vehicles for local travel in order to reduce the confusions common in big cities.
And if that is not all, one can also get details of trains and the stops they make at various stations. Currently the service is available only in Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Indore, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.
“By bringing local transport to the fingertips of the users, this website provides them with the ability to choose the bus, metro, cars or bike with ease for faster and quicker travel,” says Viran Jha, blogger and tech expert.
Information on bus routes have been collected from various route maps available in stores apart from various other Internet resources. This site also allows users to switch to maps by Google, Yahoo or Microsoft in the real maps sections. Its future plans include expanding the service and making it available to all major Indian cities.
