I always thought that GoogleMaps was one of the coolest things when it came to finding your way. As a person who is prone to getting lost, it’s a constant guide when I navigate new cities. Now, HopStop is aiming to do one better – in addition to helping you find your way, they also want to let you know the carbon footprint of your journey.
HopStop is basically a city transit guide. Just like GoogleMaps they also provide bus and subway directions for several metropolitan cities in the US. They also provide a City Guide service that will tell you where to go, what to see, where to eat etc. The site can send you directions directly on your mobile device or email.
Last week in addition to all these services HopStop announced that they will be offering a carbon emissions savings calculator.
