Jan 07, 2008 (08:01 AM EST)


NEW YORK, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- PublicRoutes.com, the international Web resource for public transportation and driving directions, today announced that it is working with NewYork.com, the leading tourism and entertainment Web site for New York City, by providing directions for tourists and visitors to the city. PublicRoutes.com's proprietary technology appears on the NewYork.com Web site and allows visitors to quickly find their way around New York City using all modes of transportation available. This announcement marks another milestone for PublicRoutes.com, which has been established as a leading resource for online directions and "green-friendly" transportation since launching in 2006.

PublicRoutes.com has created a vast database of directions-based services for over 30 cities across the country, including interactive maps, local search capabilities, popular points of interest and more. The company is providing NewYork.com with a 'Quick Link' on its homepage that allows users to find directions to any point in the greater New York City area.

"Our working relationship with NewYork.com validates the successful platform we've built at PublicRoutes.com that allows businesses and organizations to enhance customer service by helping people travel quickly and efficiently to their desired location," said Marc Sellouk, CEO of PublicRoutes.com. "Taking advantage of public transportation options, especially in New York City, is vital with the tremendous amount of resources available. PublicRoutes.com allows a native or visitor to the city the ability to find all of their travel needs in one place."

As Brett Pulley, the CEO of NewYork.com, pointed out: "Both visitors and savvy New Yorkers are often times not sure about how to get from one point to another in the city. They don't know if they should walk, take a taxi, a subway, or combine all three. As a result of our partnership with PublicRoutes.com, NewYork.com is now the best source for anyone trying to navigate this vast city."

By merging a city's resources into a free, easy-to-use website, PublicRoutes.com also allows users to obtain information and door-to-door directions to each city's top points of interest including restaurants, sporting arenas and nightlife venues - something very important for NewYork.com users.

The company will soon expand to include more cities within the U.S. and internationally. For more information and to access the new PublicRoutes.com link tool on your website, please visit: www.publicroutes.com .
