If navigating a city’s mass transit system is a daunting task, here are some suggestions to help you figure out some of the best ways to get around.

If you’re not used to taking trains or buses and making transfers, there are several Web sites that can help you understand public transportation in almost any city.

The site Hopstop.com can get you from point A to point B on public transportation, and can take into account whether you want more walking or more transfers.

Hopstop even offers mobile service, sending transportation help directly to your phone.

Google now has public transit information at Google.com/transit.

It offers maps and trip planners both domestically and internationally.
