Routing API Developer's Guide

Public Transport Maneuvers

Public Transport Routing extends maneuvers available in pedestrian mode with following actions:

  • enter: maneuver to enter a transit station
  • leave: maneuver to either depart the transit station or change public transport lines
  • change: maneuver to change public transport lines, only provided if the combineChange parameter value is set to true, if not then enter and leave pairs are used instead

(see also PublicTransportActionType, combineChange, TransportModeType )

Maneuver Logic and Ordering

Public transport routes include both pedestrian and public transit segments, using maneuvers for each as follows:

  1. A depart maneuver starts the route in pedestrian mode.
  2. Pedestrian maneuvers follow until the first Public Transport section.
  3. An enter maneuver starts the public transport section of the route.
  4. Optionally, either change or enter-leave maneuver pairs follow to indicate transit line changes.
  5. A leave maneuver ends the public transport section of the route.
  6. A continue maneuver begins a segment in pedestrian mode.
  7. Optionally, additional public transport and pedestrian segments follow.
  8. An arrive maneuver ends the route.
