The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s (SEPTA) bus schedule information is now available on Google Transit, completing an effort to include all of the transit authority's travel data on the popular Website.
SEPTA partnered with Google earlier this year to put train schedules on the site. Now, with an effort to geo-map all 15,000-plus bus stops complete, all SEPTA bus, rail and trolley schedules are readily available for anyone using Google Maps to plan a trip in the Philadelphia region.
Google Transit can also be used to plan trips on SEPTA's recently redesigned Website. One of the new online features, “Next To Arrive,” allows riders to see their next four available Regional Rail trains by simply entering the start and end points of their journey. The site also features an enhanced version of Trainview, which details on-time rail information.
In addition to improved trip-planning tools, the new Website gives customers more access to real-time travel information and new original content.
