OK, so this isn’t the sexiest bit of news to ever come out of TripIt, but it may be one of the more practical. You’d be surprised how many users write to us every day asking for the ability to add buses, ferries, taxis, and other forms of ground transportation to their trips. We also get plenty of requests for improved support for events and activities like concerts and theater.
So our crack “Itinerator” team has widened the scope of what you can now import into TripIt. Now you can send us confirmations from most of the big event and ticketing sites, like TicketMaster, StubHub, TicketWeb, Eventful, Tickets.com, Upcoming, Eventbrite — even Fandango (yes, the site where you book movie tickets)!
We’ve also created a new “transportation” item in TripIt so you can add all kinds of ground (and water) transportation. There aren’t many big sites people use to book ground transportation, but we do support confirmation emails from SuperShuttle. We are eager to support more transportation booking sites, so if you know of a big one, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re happy to have these new trip items as part of the TripIt family. Enjoy!
