PublicRoutes.com, a leading Web resource that provides directions for public transportation, local search and travel information, today announced that Travelocity, the fifth largest U.S.-based travel agency, will power the website’s travel feature, ‘Flights, Hotels and More’. PublicRoutes.com’s ‘Flights, Hotels and More’ feature allows users to plan every aspect of travel to and from anywhere in the U.S. through a single source.
By seamlessly integrating with Travelocity’s extensive database of travel information and reservation services, PublicRoutes.com users are able to use one website to: book their flight and hotel, travel to the airport, book a car service from the airport and purchase tickets ahead of time to enjoy the city’s attractions.
“We design and implement features on the site with the consumer in mind,” said Marc Sellouk, CEO of PublicRoutes.com. “By closely aligning our services with a leading consumer brand like Travelocity, we now offer a more complete, efficient and affordable way for PublicRoutes.com users to plan their trips. With the ‘Flights, Hotels and More’ option, site visitors can book everything from important business trips to family vacations with confidence and ease.”
PublicRoutes.com provides detailed itineraries, maps, and public transportation directions to and from multiple locations in the U.S. as well as connects users with local businesses and services. With the ‘Flights, Hotels and More’ option, PublicRoutes.com further expands its reach across the nation by offering vacation packages, last minute deals for all of the country’s top destinations, tickets to popular attractions and much more.
“PublicRoutes.com gives users the added peace of mind of having a trusted guide in cities that may be unfamiliar to them,” said Richard Harris, senior vice president of strategy and distribution for Travelocity. “Our Travelocity Partner Network team is looking forward to working closely with the PublicRoutes.com team as they continue to rapidly expand their network.”
PublicRoutes.com launched in June 2006, providing a comprehensive online, directions-based website catering to the wide variety of needs of residents, businesses and visitors across the country. The site will soon expand its offerings to more metropolitan areas in the U.S. and internationally.
