Plan a future trip

Implement Using: Directions Flexible API

To plan a trip in the future we configure the departure_time parameter of the Directions Flexible API along with other constraints. Providing a departure_time allows the service to consider the general traffic conditions at the given time and provide the best route and ETAs accordingly. To configure this request, we provide:

  • origin & destination to to denote the starting and end locations of the trip
  • mode set to “car” to get a route which a car can take
  • departure_time parameter set with the timestamp when the trip is to be made
  • option set to “flexible”
