This paper presents a simplified approach for developing a system that would have the ability to coordinate and integrate the diverse sources of information to provide the user with useful information that would not only assist him in planning individual trips, but would aid the user in planning a sequence of daily travel activities. This integrated system would provide the users with a wider range of travel mode, route, destinations, and scheduling options. It will aid its user in planning his daily itinerary by arranging the sequence of stops, suggesting and possibly selecting stop locations, providing transit route and schedule information, and suggesting travel routes. The formulation should consider time constraints, activity needs, real transit service parameters and the actual roadway system. This paper addresses the travel itinerary planning concept which is a variant of the traveling salesman problem.
