If the TTC Trip Planner does not understand an address, it asks the user to check the address and provide a more specific one, or it provides a list of potential addresses similar to the one entered.

Additional options offered by the TTC Trip Planner include accessible routes for individuals with disabilities, bus routes that have bicycle racks, special points of interest near bus stops and stations, and a maximum walking distance calculator. Special points of interest include museums, parks, galleries, shopping centers and hospitals. The walking distance calculator filters out any trip that requires more than a set number of meters in walking distance from one station to another.
