Online travel portal MakeMyTrip has launched travel app RoutePlanner. The travel organiser integrates and displays connectivity options available two locations, including flights, buses, trains and cabs. RoutePlanner allows users to view multiple routes for the same origin-destination pair. The app offers travel options across 4,300 cities, 2,300 flight routes, 65,000 bus routes, 9.7 lakh train routes and an extensive road network. Each route is ranked by an algorithm called ‘RouteRank’ which ranks the routes based on convenience, duration and price. Once a route is selected, RoutePlanner displays the best transport combinations down to the specific flight number, train name or bus operator with approximate fares.
