About Routes International Transportation and Travel

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Heinz Hammer and I am the chief administrator of Routes International (RI). What started as a small site to help sell my book "Routes, The Lighter Side of Public Transit" has now developed into a comprehensive transportation and travel related reference and travel booking site covering all modes of transportation by air, land, rail and sea worldwide with members in over 60 countries.

My interest in transportation was awakened at an early age in Germany where my grandfather and my uncle, who both worked for the railway all their lives, allowed me to observe them at their various fascinating assignments. After immigrating to Canada at age 23 I enjoyed my working life with a large public transportation company in various positions feeding my passion for "people" transportation. I also developed a keen interest in aviation which eventually led me to a part time career as a flight instructor. A genuine interest and appreciation for all "people" movers has helped shape the character of the site.

You will find direct links to all modes of passenger transportation companies worldwide, plus many related services such as bus and train schedules of major US providers. This will assist you in making informed travel and transportation decisions. Whether you are a professional searching for information such as contacts, suppliers, colleagues, customers etc. or perhaps a 'clippie' from Manchester embarking on a real or imaginary journey, you have established an unparalleled point of departure!

Routes International gives you instant access to railway passes and ferry reservations for Europe, suggestions of great books and posters covering all modes of transportation, and much much more...

Our travel site, which has recently been separated from RoutesInternational to facilitate easier navigation through both sites now has its own domain:
Be assured that you are getting competitive pricing at top-notch hotels - even at the last minute.

My pursuit to keep and up-to-date requires many hours of work and research on a daily basis and I'm very grateful for your support and to all of you who take the time to submit new links and let me know about broken ones.

Wishing you happy and safe journeys.

Heinz Hammer
