Bike and Ride

Bike and Ride is a REST service that helps you calculate a route to your destination using a bike and public transportation. With Bike and Ride, you can get instructions for every step of the route.

The Bike and Ride solution gives you route suggestions for the following use case:

  1. Use your bike to cycle to an optimal public transport station along the route.

  • Reach areas that are not well-connected to public transportation.
