ARLINGTON, Va. —  A new website helps commuters plan their trip to areas around Northern Virginia and the D.C. area by looking at the different transit options available including Metro, buses, driving, Capital Bikeshare and personal cycling, according to ARLnow.com.

The website, CarFreeAtoZ, developed by Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS) and D.C.-based tech firm Conveyal, plans trips in a manner similar to Google Maps or Mapquest, but it combines different transit options, such as walking, using the Metro and biking. The website is mobile friendly, so users can pull it up on their phones while on the go, the report said.

Users plug in their current location’s address, the address of where they want to go and the time they’re planning to leave, and then the website calculates the different travel methods. Travel methods can be sorted by total time, total cost, calories and walking distance. Users can also see the cumulative estimated benefits of making the trip via a non-car method on a yearly basis, ARLnow.com reported. For the full story, click here.
