Hopstop, launched in 2005, was one of the original transit trip planning websites. In 2011, Hopstop added functionality for planning trips for an additional 20 agencies, totaling coverage for 57 cities. The Hopstop website asks transit agencies to email email@example.com if they would like to be included in Hopstop directions. In addition to directions, Hopstop provides transit maps and schedules for included agencies. It is cost-free for transit agencies to participate. Hopstop Live also includes real-time transit information that is crowd-sourced from app users.
