transportdirect.gov provided a comprehensive service for people with and without private transport. Postcode to postcode, place name to place name railway station to railway station, bus and much more. They've stopped operating and I cannot find an equivalent service. Does anybody know?

how annoying. Here is the official line:

many of the alternatives only work in cities, and only the TFL one gives comprehensive walking routes.

no wonder the nation continues to get fat.

ps and as for travel planning to the Olympics - all you needed was a tube/train map! Ridiculous.

Yes, that is what I found. And none of the other links work. I have discovered through a friend that if you just type both postcodes and public transport into Google you get quite a bit of useful information. Not as good at the earlier website though.
