About UD Trip Planner

The UD Trip Planner is designed by students, for students. You can quickly and easily determine the best method for traveling outside of the campus, using local buses and trains or Zipcar (the car-sharing program). Simply enter your current location and the destination, then choose your preferred form of travel. Have a safe trip!
