HopStop.com gone starting October 2015 - fav alternatives?

This morning, I went searching for travel directions on my home computer via http://www.hopstop.com and was horrified to see the new banner across the top that read,
"HopStop will no longer be available starting October 2015"

I know most people here probably use mobile apps (IOS versus Android), but would love to know what you use, or can recommend for someone like me (PC-based). NOTE: I use this for a combination of navigating the subway & bus system as I often travel at least once a week to an unfamiliar destination, but also walk a lot too and have used HopStop.com to map my travels and estimate time.

Bummer about HopStop. I wonder why they are shutting down.

Have you ever used MTA Trip planner?

Ditto, this is what I use.

I tried posting a link, but comments with links get tossed as spam. Just search for MTA Trip Planner, if you have not used it already.

Hi genghis_cohn, I just unscreened (unspammed) that. Appreciate the info and link!

Google Maps has done me well in the past.

Thanks much, lady_wormtongue. I'll try Google Maps too!
