The Pendler-Check is capable of comparing two routes (e.g. Bern-Zürich and Zürich-St.Gallen) and giving a clear advice which home location is better for commuting to work. The analysis is done based on real connection information from SBB on a randomly selected workday (from 06:00 to 22:00).

A major new feature that I implemented for the Timetable Change on December 15 was the ability to compare connections before and after the change.

The demo on demo is no longer available.
