What is ‘take neighbouring stops into account’ for?

The ‘take neighbouring stops into account for origin and destination’ function in advanced settings selects several stops in a small around the origin and destination’ locations selected. It is particularly useful if you are selecting an actual stop and are not, sure which one it is from a list e.g. where two stops are close together or on opposite sides of the road or have similar names. This is because if you select a stop the National Journey Planner will try to work out a journey plan even if the stop is on the wrong side of the road.

Does the National Journey Planner have auto-refresh capabilities so that journey results shown on the screen are always up to date?

No, the National Journey Planner does not currently auto-refresh; therefore, the time of travel may have to be changed to reflect the current time.

The e-mail feature is not successful in sending the journey plan to some e-mail addresses. Why can’t it send the e-mail?

The National Journey Planner should be successful in sending an e-mail to recipients who do not have restrictions on incoming mail. Depending on the recipient’s e-mail options/configuration, it may be considered as spam mail and therefore be blocked.
