Many journeys involve changing between different modes of transport. This is a problem because all these modes don't often match up leading to stress and congestion. Thinking about journeys by multiple modes of transport (car, bus, train, bike etc.) what new products or services can you think of to make clunky journeys connect up better or create new hybrid forms of transport?

I have been thinking about when I go shopping I like to buy fair trade and if possible organic .... I know it is better for my health and for the environment. I recognise that choice may come with an additional cost, but when you know it's for the greater good, it's easier to accept.   Thinking about the post regarding carbon credits, I have been thinking that it can be really difficult at times to know if my journey is the best for the environment... I may be going by train, etc, but the...

The majority of ideas in these recent challenges have focused heavily on train, bus and car journeys. Obviously. But it struck me that the humble ferry may have been overlooked. I frequently travel to Europe by ferry and car, usually to Dunkerque. These ferries are primarily vehicle ferries but there are occasionally some foot passengers. However there do not appear to be any public transport connections From the port. I wonder whether ferries would be used more if there were better...

It would help if travel companies joined up the most popular travel routes which had peak useage such as commuter and popular tourist journeys. This could be for different journey lengths. An example could be the top ten journeys across a city or on a commuter belt. Potentially they could receive Government subsidies as an incentive for making public transport more accessible

One of the things I find really stressful when travelling by train and changing trains is knowing where my next platform is in a station particularly when the train I am on is running late and the changeover time has been squeezed. I don't always have time to find a departure board in the station, finding one could mean missing my connection. If I have an internet connection there are apps that I can use but connectivity can be an issue when approaching stations as there are often tunnels...

I go to a music lesson in Forest Gate on Saturdays, and an hour later I have a drama class in Stratford. Not much distant between the two.  I take the car up to Forest Gate, but as parking, even with a disabled badge, is a joke in central Stratford, I just leave my car in Forest Gate and take a good old red bus through to Stratford. In a way it seems silly as I have a car available to me, but getting the bus is cheaper than parking in the shopping centre multi storey, and you don't have to...

Would be great if trains and planes allowed you to check in from home the slot your car into a booked place and the connection did not involve a host of separte bookings and you sorting all the timings out. Not sure that would ever be possible

maybe dedicated shuttles to take people commuting from trains to bus stops etc or bikes for those who can ride them to make the transistions easier? they could have their own lanes maybe in busy areas like surrey quays    (Image: Shuttle Bus Hotel, Palm Springs, by Chris Goldberg from Flickr.com)

i hardly use the bus as it doesn't connect with the train, when I do it's difficult to know whether it will deliver you in time or not. If I take the car there is a risk the car park will be full, or have no accessible spaces, due to selfish parking. It would be good to know this to allow choice.  Bus timetables are often incomprehensible and are presentationally different with place descriptions unclear. Unless you have been told.

TRAPP   This is an idea for an app called Trapp as it is a TRavel APP, it traps other apps including temporary apps.   I’ve read with interest all the ideas here which extol the virtues of existing apps and show the gaps in the market for the type of apps we would like to see.   if you were to download every travel and mobility app that might be of use to you in your travelling there’d be little memory left on your device for much else!! Also you often need to switch between one...
