Popular journey planning systems, like Google Maps or Yahoo! Maps, usually ignore user’s preferences and context. This paper shows how we applied context-aware recommendation technologies in an existing journey planning mobile application to provide personalized and context-dependent recommendations to users. We describe two different strategies for context-aware user modeling in the journey planning domain. We present an extensive performance comparison of the proposed strategies by conducting a user-centric study in addition to a traditional offline evaluation method.
