HopStop.com Expands into Tri-State Area by adding Long Island, parts of New Jersey and the Metro North area to its mass-transit routing service
New York, NY, July 21, 2007
HopStop.com, the leader in online mass transit directions, has recently added new destinations to its constantly expanding service. In addition to New York City, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, and San Francisco, HopStop now includes mass transit directions for Long Island, parts of New Jersey and the Metro North service area. Commuters in New York City, New Jersey, Westchester and sections of Connecticut will now have access to point-to-point directions using public transportation anywhere in the coverage area. Although still in the testing phase, these additions will help users in the Tri-State area maneuver through the complex mass transit systems and provide smooth transitions for interstate travel.
“The Tri-state area represents approximately 40% of all mass-transit usage in the United States. We are excited by what the expanded offering will do to improve the commuting experience for residents and tourists.” said Chinedu Echeruo, CEO of HopStop.com. By constantly improving and adding to the site, HopStop hopes to keep its position as the most used site for mass transit directions in the United States.
