routerank logorouteRANK CEO Jochen Mundinger: «We take into account the whole route and all possible and relevant means of transport and their combinations.»

routeRANK is an EPFL spinoff which provides a software for journey planning. As opposed to other solutions which only take into account one transport, routeRANK considers the whole itinerary. «Multimodal and door-to-door are the magic words», says CEO Jochen Mundinger. «We take into account the whole route and all possible and relevant means of transport and their combinations. » This ranges from flights, train, public transport and car over to Park+Rail, Park+Ride, car sharing, carpooling, and even includes E-bikes, bicycles and footpaths. In only one search query, routeRANK’s system finds you the best itinerary. Thereby, criteria as cheapest price, fastest travel time and low CO2 emissions are considered.
