PublicRoutes.com, a search engine for public transportation directions has expanded its service to include London. The London launch marks the first time a company has offered directions for public transportation in more than one country.

The site offers users point-to-point directions and covers all forms of transportation. It also offers directions to a city’s main attractions such as restaurants, sporting venues and nightlife spots along with the option to book hotels and flight reservations.

"The public transportation in London, much like New York, has grown to
a point that it becomes congested and confusing to the average resident or tourist who is trying to travel quickly and efficiently,"said Marc Sellouk, CEO of PublicRoutes.com.

"London is a major globalcity with tremendous tourist appeal and it was a natural choice to begin our international presence there."

Key features of the site include Local Guides, which provides users access to a directory of local businesses, maps and directions. Their Web site directions are available in 14 languages from Spanish to Chinese.

The MyPublicRoutes feature stores the locations a user has entered and can be referenced at a later time.

Currently PublicRoutes covers 9 cities in the U.S. and plans to add more cities both domestically and internationally.

The site will be helpful for people who frequently travel, but the downside is the limited number of cities PublicRoutes has in their database. Once they increase the amount of cites they cover than the site will hold more value. Right now it’s just an ok resource that has plenty of room to grow.
