Milwaukee, WI, USA: Scopia Technologies LLC, creator of the on-line travel search engine, GoScopia.com announced recent technology advances that now offer GoScopia.com users the ability to search (within covered areas) for public transportation at airports and allow for quick and easy information on intermodal connections using the bus or a train.
Technology upgrades allow site visitors to find public transportation options by typing their destination address or city in GoScopia.com . The site immediately displays the airports nearest the user’s intended destination, and with one additional click on the “Public Transportation” button next the airport’s name, the display will show the name of the public transportation stop or station and the routes served. A link to the transportation agency is also provided for additional information the user may require.
“This is a great enhancement for our users. With our proprietary search algorithms, our users are able to find public modes of transportation options in more than 150 cities, towns and regions worldwide.” said Jim Graziano, CMO of Scopia Technologies. “The public modes are displayed by distance from and direction to any address, city name or attraction.”
Beyond simple airport listings, Scopia has always offered multiple options for taxis, limousines, buses, trains, ferries, car hires and other modes of transportation. The difficulty in providing public transportation has been many public transportation agencies do not list their schedules and route data in a usable format on the Internet. Thus, it was a much more manual process to gather that information.
Currently, the company has augmented its data with more the listings available from global schedule aggregators. Scopia is helping push this data availability concept with agencies throughout the world. By providing local public transportation agencies with a global platform, Scopia hopes to offer public transportation routes and schedules for every city in its data base.
“Public transportation has always been a cornerstone of our service offering,” Graziano added. “So many people across the globe rely on buses, rail and shuttles to save cost, help the environment or both. That’s why we are continuously working with providers to add more cities and make the data more useful and relevant to our users.”
