All public transportation routes now on Google Maps
The phrase "I'll just Google it," has new meaning for commuters, now that all Massachusetts public transportation authorities' routes and schedules are on Google Maps.
The service is available online and on mobile for Android or iPhone.
The coordination of all public transportation options means that commuters, travelers or visitors can make just one Google Maps search, even if their trip involves several different routes and schedules.
The directions can now guide an individual from one transit station to another with detailed walking directions for the first and final portions of the trip.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation led the creation of this service to make it easier for people to use public transportation. MassDOT has a goal of tripling the levels of bicycling, walking and transit use throughout the state by 2030.
