It is very difficult for the visitors of Copenhagen to travel across the city, they usually use Google maps or ask the citizens of the Danish capital about the timetables or bus stops. But now sightseeing the city without any knowledge of Danish will be easier with a new website launched by Copenhagen’s public transport information platform Din Offentlige Transport (DOT), announced Copenhagen Municipality. The DOT website includes ticketing and transport information in English, as well as tips for tourists, gathering related information in one place for the first time. It is divided in 4 sections:
- one providing basic information about public transport and where and how to buy tickets, with a link to a journey planner;
- a guide to attractions in and around Copenhagen;
- a ticket and travel card explainer;
- a help page.
The decision to boost public transport information for visitors was made in response to the Ministry for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs and the National Tourism Forum, which last year called for better collaboration over the use of city buses and trains by tourists. One of the aims of the resource is to draw more visitors to attractions in municipalities outside of central Copenhagen. The hope is that the initiative will break down some barriers and get more travellers to experience a larger part of the city.
