When I solve a route and generate directions for my multimodal dataset, the end product is not very user friendly:

enter image description here

The pedestrian started walking along Main Street and then boarded a bus to travel along the various segments of the bus route. Is there a way to change the text so that it makes more sense, so something like:

  1. Walk northwest along Main St
  2. Board the bus at Stop 1 ...etc

The connectivity is set up so that the pedestrian can only get on the bus at official bus stops.

@blah238 thanks for the tip, I'll do that. – Cindy Williams-Jayakumar Dec 18 '12 at 4:59
Looking at the slides from the ESRI UC technical workshops, it seems that using the RoadClass attribute as a descriptor might work. I'll try it out and post back here if it works. – Cindy Williams-Jayakumar Jan 22 '13 at 12:14
