This paper focuses on the issue of flexible provision of information about public transport and assistance with planning travel. Included in this is the consideration of travel time, possible delays and inconvenience of making connections. This paper also describes the infrastructure that is currently being developed at The Nottingham Trent University to facilitate multi-modal travel throughout the city of Nottingham, with particular reference to buses and trams. Due to the very large number of links and nodes inherent to public transport networks, and to the decision-making capabilities of the traveller, it is necessary to prune the search space of the algorithm.
