Google Maps Has Transit Info

I’m a winter bus rider and one of the things that bugs me is how tough it is to get transit information. Yes, our city transit authority has a web site but it’s touch to navigate, with a user interface that was poor in 2002, let alone today.

But today I read that Google Maps has expanded to offer transit information as part of their mapping service. If your transit organization submits the data, bus stops and stop times will be displayed on the map.

I’ll notify the appropriate authorities and am just jiggly with anticipation…

UPDATE: Well, it was harder than I thought to leave a comment on the Regina Transit site but it’s done. If you’ve got some time on your hands, check out the ‘contact us’ process here which sends you here, here and finally here (three screens of info to fill in including manditory country and home phone number fields!)
