We were so excited about launching this feature that we almost let it escape the development farm a week early…
We held on for another week of testing, though, and yesterday route display and driving directions went live.
When you click on any Blue Badge Disabled / handicap parking location on BlueBadgeParking.com you’ll now see an extra button – “Drive here”.
Click the button and a (usually wiggly) blue line will appear on the map indicating the route from your current location to the selected parking location.
Once the route is displayed, the “Drive here” button will be replaced by a “Show route” button.
Clicking the Show route button, or clicking on the blue route line will allow you to view a set of text directions leading you directly to the posting location.
This is just the start, though. We’re far from finished with this functionality and you can expect further announcements in the future about enhancements to routing and directions. We thought it was such a useful feature that we just had to get it released as soon as a working version was ready.
