New multi-modal route planner in LA includes shared mobility

The City of Los Angeles in the USA has introduced its very first multimodal trip planner. It is a mobile application called Go LA.

Users can compare trips with different modes. These do not only include the "traditional" modes like public transport, driving&parking, walking and cycling, but also taxis and car-sharing and ride-booking services like Lyft, Uber, Zipcar and FlitWays. The app shares anonymized information about destination and preferred travel mode with the city to support planning and investment decisions.

If I am not mistaken, there are not many apps yet that integrate such a wide range of modes and services. If you know any other good examples, please share them below.
