In order to get subway directions on HopStop.com, start by clicking on Transit Directions. Enter your starting location, destination and time of departure. Then select Subway/Rail Only as the mode of transportation and check the box next to Enable Smart Route. Finally, click Get Directions.
If you are unsatisfied with the results after getting directions to a destination using only the Subway/Rail option, HopStop.com also gives directions that incorporate a bus, bicycle or taxi. Additionally, you can enter whether you prefer directions with less walking and more transfers or more walking and fewer transfers. You can also choose whether or not you need a route that is wheelchair-accessible or stroller-friendly.
After entering all of the necessary specifications, the website displays a list of route options. The list shows some information, such as trip time, departure time, arrival time, walking time, the number of transfers and the cost of the whole trip. It also shows you which specific vehicles are used in that route. If none of the options are acceptable, you can try to view more options by clicking Show More.
Once you choose an option, click Directions. The details of the chosen route include arrival time of each vehicle, the location of each vehicle, the stops you will pass on the way, and the stop where you should disembark.
