Based on a user study in the Internet, this research analyses how map design and annotated network information in public transportation maps affect utilized proxy criteria when planning the fastest route in an intra-urban transportation network. Further, it is examined whether annotated network information on schematic maps affects the map reader in successfully finding the fastest route within the trip planning process. For this second task, a schematic map and maps with annotated headways, departure times and current positions of transit vehicles are compared.
